New Trends in Cosmetic Surgery 2015

Cosmetic surgery is big news in the United States. So it is not surprising that techniques are being continuously updated, refined and enhanced to tempt a lot of people to improve their looks. More recently, a group of surgeons have announced that advancements in technology may soon permit females to have breast surgery during their lunch-hour.

The following are some of the new trends in cosmetic surgery to watch out for in the years to come. Will you be tempted?

Less invasive liposuction

There are multiple options for patients looking to get rid of unwanted fat in the quick (surgical) way. You will find names like smartlipo, waterlipo, cool lipo, pro lipo, etc. There are so many techniques and liposuction machines in the cosmetic surgery market that it is too laborious to name them all in one single article. Truth is, in the end it all depends on the skills and experience of the surgeon. When asking our specialists, a competent and qualified surgeon will be recognizable by hes/her medical qualifications, years of experience in liposuction, appearances and references in high valued medial magazines, and most of all the testimonials should speak of how happy patients walk out of the surgeons body sculpting practice.


The 3-D Face Life

This is an advanced, state-of the-art, less invasive facial surgical procedure that seeks to plump-up the face through stretching tissue found inside the face back towards the cheek to provide it with a more youthful appearance instead of making incisions and tightening the skin, a procedure employed in conventional face-lift.

Since this surgical procedure does not involve creating a lot of incisions in the skin, the patient will have lesser scars. The procedure also seeks to provide a more pleasant look – a youthful, fuller appearance instead of a tight, a probable wind-tunnel appearance. This cosmetic procedure is especially ideal for younger patients (around 40 to 50) whose skin is not very wrinkled.


The Lunch-Time Breast Surgery

This surgical procedure is more popularly known as Macrolane. It is touted as the must-have surgical procedure in the years to come. Unlike the traditional breast augmentation surgery, this treatment does not involve the insertion of breast implants. Instead, the breasts are made bigger in size with injections during an hour-long session. Unlike traditional breast implants, the outcomes are less dramatic, increasing the breast size to about 3 quarters of a cup size. Also the outcomes will only last for about 2 to 3 years.

This treatment is far less invasive as compared to the usual breast augmentation procedure since it only involves a series of injections instead of creating incisions in the skin.


Fine lines – wrinkles & Scar removal treatments

Instead of injecting the standard type of collagen (bovine collagen derived from cows) into your wrinkles, the patients will have a sample of their own collagen and cultivated in the laboratory which is then used for their wrinkles. Skin is treated not at the surface as in a facial but at the level where it renews. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated, resulting in healthier, better-looking skin. When an individual’s own collagen is utilized, the body will tend to continue synthesizing more collagen and thereby, the effects will last a lot longer. The physician may also store a sample of the patient’s collagen for future use. In this procedure, a tiny biopsy is taken from behind the patient’s ear.


Review of the past Medical Conventions

This is a review of past medical conventions. The 8th medical convention was organized in the year 2004. In less than six years there have been several reforms: the reform of health, with diverse laws regulating upon the health system (including creation of the SNIS, FONASA, separation of ASSE’s management of the MSP). A law for the creation of the national medical school of the Uruguay is has been finally issued. These matters had been considered and discussed between the 1999 and 2004 conventions.

We are now confronted with a different picture. The health system reform laws have been approved. The law on the Medical College also has passed, although with difficulty.

Since the generations of medical leaders have varied substantially, it is possible that those who today occupy seats of leadership have not participated in previous instances, at least for the most part, and that others already do not remember some of the many aspects to this rich heritage of national medical thinking has generated, and partially gone into oblivion. The so mentioned change in the model of attention is still waiting to get the train that brings it. Meanwhile we continue training doctors for the previous model, there are specialists who shine by their absence (or because migrated best horizons) and the misunderstandings, even with the reform, are produced. The inherited Centralism follows so rampant, back to the reality of the country, which for the most part, State leaders know little about.

Is it not here who gets the applause and acknowledgment by being devoted to something that was in the spirit of the national doctors over many decades. In the same way that many collective doctors in other countries around the world have worked to make increasingly more comprehensive, universal, equitable and human health care. That has become one of the most significant contributions of the medical profession around the world. On the contrary, it would seem that it is sought in some sectors next these historic contributions, to attribute merits that are foreign to them. It is the case of the rook dressed in feathers of the Peacock.

Our time, from the last decades of the 20th century, after the dictatorship, was marked in the field of health by facts that generated concern, between 1986 and 2003.

The old structures of a health care system broke down and were brought to ruins, such as public hospitals, or Mutualism with the consequent loss of jobs; the chances of employability in a more widened and less supportive labor market deteriorated. The technological and scientific advances threaten to destroy the doctor, attitude and fitness clinics and doctor-patient relationship, at the same time that moved it from the central place that the professional had on the generation and management of services and proposals; the training of professionals in excess (or deficit) in relation to the demands of the structure of health services; the defense of medical ethics,  as well as professional journalism return to foreground when colleagues, relations with institutions or patients suffer tremendous impacts and head looks toward collective mechanisms of moral safety (ethics) and material (conditions of work and remuneration).
