What Does The Future Of Cosmetic Surgery Hold?

Cosmetic surgery trends show us that plastic surgery demand keeps growing. This is not going to change, especially in the near future. We will get to see procedures that are less invasive, more affordable, and much more advanced thanks to innovative techniques that will surely be pioneered and brand new technologies that will appear.

This growth is not new for the health industry. Years ago, eyelid surgery was very tricky. Nowadays, anyone can learn more about double eyelid surgery and get it done in a completely safe environment. So, even in the next few months, we might be surprised by new advancements. The ones below are just some that could be mentioned.

Stem Cells

Plastic surgeons are excited about the use of stem cell technology. These will be combined in the future with tissue engineering with the focus on growing body parts. Structures like the skin will be able to be grown, which can lead to implants that can restore function and form.

We should also add that stem cells might end up being re-injected as fillers, which is exciting because they would last longer and be more compatible than the filters used right now.

Stem cell research is right now being done in various fields, including:

Fat Grafting

The extra fat tissue of a patient can now be regenerated and transferred to other body parts. The technique is popular in plastic surgery affecting areas like hands, face, buttocks, and breasts. The only problem is the option is solely available for those patients with enough fat to transplant.

Getting back to stem cells, they can become literally any type of tissue. This includes fat so it will be possible to grow the patient’s own fat to then be used for fat grafting. As a result, transplants might become more common than ever.

Fat Reduction

Fat reduction is nowadays possible with the use of several radical new techniques, without the need to use incisions. New procedures that will be developed and those that are nowadays used can be a huge asset for many. This includes fat-freezing, which allows targeting specific problem areas to destroy fat cells.

Stopping Or Slowing Down Aging

New treatments are right now being developed in order to modify collage breakdown, programmed cell death, and several other soft-tissue and skin modifications we naturally see as we age. The quest to fight aging that has always been a reality for humanity will surely continue.

Bespoke Treatments

In the past 10 years, there have been more and more procedures developed. We are sure that plastic surgery is going to expand and we will surely end up seeing an increase in bespoke treatments.

People react in different ways to some products or treatments. More knowledge is gained about this as time passes and we expect to see individual cosmetic treatments offered by several spas. They will be tailored by the patient profile with the goal of achieving the very best possible result. It will even be possible to determine how much patients will scar.
