The Latest News in Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Medicine

There has been a lot of news in plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine recently. Here are some things that you really need to know!

1. The FDA has issued a recall of Allergan Biocell textured (Style 410 and 468) breast implants. These implants have been determined to have a higher risk of ALCL (anaplastic large cell lymphoma) compared to textured implants from Mentor and Sientra. Although Allergan is no longer selling these implants, the FDA does not necessarily recommend that women who have these implants should have them removed. This does not apply to the vast majority of my patients, as I have routinely used smooth implants without any known risk of ALCL. I will share more information with you as I receive it.

2. Allergan received FDA clearance for their new muscle thickening device, CoolTone. This is a direct competitor to the original muscle enhancing and fat reducing device, Emsculpt. Currently at YPS we are testing out Emsculpt. It’s a very interesting treatment which we are excited about! We will definitely let you know when we will begin offering it! We have no plans to offer or test CoolTone at this time.

3. I recently published a study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal titled, “What is the Ideal Instagram Filter?” Juno was deemed the “most flattering” filter and Reyes was determined to be the “most youthful” filter. If you get a chance, try them out and see for yourself!

4. The Differences Between Botox and Newtox (Jeuveau) – At YPS we’ve been testing and comparing the effects of Botox versus its new competitor Jeuveau (nicknamed Newtox). It appears so far that Jeuveau has a quicker onset of action and does not come with the initial headache that Botox can sometimes create. But does it last as long? Time will tell!
