The Latest Hot Treatments in Plastic Surgery
- Posted on: May 30 2019
I hope you had a nice Memorial Day! I spent the weekend with some old friends at our new lake home in Brighton, Michigan. It was relaxing, but also a lot of learning (such as how to prevent geese from pooping on the beach, get a seadoo running, and tie nautical knots).
In addition to a weekend on the lake, I recently returned from the annual Aesthetic Meeting. This conference of top cosmetic plastic surgeons took place in New Orleans, and is the place all the top docs go to discuss the hottest topics in our field. So this week, I thought I’d fill you in on what we discussed!
1. Newtox is here! Newtox is the nickname given to Jeuveau, the first true competitor to Botox in ten years. It was recently FDA-approved and studies show its results are similar, and possibly even better, than Botox! I am the first doctor in the Metro Detroit to get this awesome new treatment, and we are now offering it at YPS! The cost is the same as Botox. Interested? Call us at (248) 273-7700 to make your appointment with our expert injectors today!
2. The newest category of cosmetic treatments are the muscle enhancers. Led by Emsculpt, these non-invasive devices stimulate muscle to enlarge, giving people a larger butt or more defined abs. New studies are showing the longevity of results appear longer than previously believed (6-12 months). Allergan, makers of Coolsculpting, also have a new muscle-enhancing device in the FDA approval pipeline right now. Exciting stuff!
3. One major hot topic in plastic surgery is the concern regarding health issues with two procedures previously thought to be safe. Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) and breast augmentation using textured surface breast implants are on my Holistic Beauty Blacklist and are very hot topics in the field of cosmetic medicine. If you are considering either of these procedures, I would strongly encourage you to do your research before committing to having them done. Buyer beware!
4. I’ve gotten some flack from other plastic surgeons regarding my acknowledgment that Breast Implant Illness (BII) is real. I believe a small percentage of women have medical issues that arise after undergoing augmentation with silicone breast implants. Many other plastic surgeons disagree with me. But have they read the evidence? If you are interested, watch this video I created on YouTube about BII and what I recommend to my patients.
I was pleased that the topic of BII was discussed, with several plastic surgeons also acknowledging that this is a valid concern. Research is beginning to determine exactly who is at risk. As more info comes out, I’ll share it with you!
These are some of the hot issues in plastic surgery today. Stay tuned to my weekly newsletters for all the latest news!
