The latest in Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery: What does 2021 hold for us?
Throughout the past few decades, the medical industry has been taking steady strides in technological advancements and with an industry that continues to be normalized, the plastic and cosmetic fields are no exception to such progressions.
New trends and technologies have revolutionized plastic surgery globally and aimed to position it as a less-risk and more safe industry. With every New Year, new trends arrive followed by new technology and solutions to cater for it.
Plastic surgery consultant and expert, Dr. Mahmoud Sayed stated that, “technology continues to progress ensuring maximum results and is indeed a tool that is helping the field. In the past, patients were hesitant to go through with any procedure due to its side effect or invasiveness, but with advanced technologies that ensure faster recovery, less swelling and improved results through minimally invasive surgeries, Egyptians are becoming more courageous”.
Everything from laser technologies to urtlasonic have changed the way patients view and trust cosmetic surgeries and how the results look at the end. Some of the latest technologies both globally and in Egypt include:
Traditional liposuction is a procedure that removes excess fat from under the skin. VASER liposuction is one form of this procedure that depends on urtlasound technology and vibrations to disrupt the bonds between fat cells and loosens them from the deeper tissues so that fat can be removed more effectively.
The difference between VASER and traditional liposuction is that VASER is a more controlled and gentle procedure that provides a less painful experience and a faster recovery.
J-Plasma Skin Tightening
J-Plasma is an effective method to tighten skin in multiple areas of the body without the needing to remove or cut any excess skin. The technology works in a revolutionary way to rejuvenate the face, neck and many other body parts without pain and without a lengthy recovery. J-Plasma is also suitable to complement other plastic surgeries such as liposuction and tummy tuck operations.
“Technology will always surprise us and will always continue to change depending on the latest trends in the field and consumers’ needs. Nowadays, contouring is everything! Whether that is your face or your body, everyone is loving the contoured look and as a result, I am always on the hunt for the latest technologies worldwide to implement in my clinics to guarantee optimum results for my clients,” added Dr. Sayed.
10 years back, we would never had thought that such innovative concepts would exist and that’s why both plastic surgeons and interested individuals are always on the search for what’s new in global markets and what will be blowing their minds next.
“A leap in the plastic surgery field would be the invention of machines and equipment that would hide scars from previous incidents and increase the ratio of skin tightening so we do not have to resort to cutting off excess skin whatever the case is,” concluded Dr. Sayed
Plastic surgery can be either a personal choice or a medical need following a surgery. Whatever your case is, technology has assured us all that great wonders are happening around us and the plastic surgery field continues to be a leading testament on this.
