Facial Cosmetic Surgery - Things To know Before You go For It!

The various facial cosmetic surgeries, be in Rhinoplasty, the PRP or the different facelift surgeries (for cosmetic as well as for reconstructive purposes) have made life a lot simpler. Based on the latest and advanced technologies, most of the facial cosmetic surgeries are hassle-free, with a reduced risk of complications. From treating the acne scars to reducing the signs of aging (wrinkles, fine lines, eye bags, or saggy skin, to name a few), the facial surgeries have filled people with a new lease of confidence and positivity. They no longer have to hide their faces with the fear of being ridiculed or humiliated.

However, the facial surgeries may not always produce the desired results. There are few vital factors that should be taken into consideration before one opts for a facial cosmetic surgery.

  1. Know the credentials of your surgeon well: One wrong surgery (a botched surgery) can spell disaster for the rest of your life. Facial cosmetic surgeries require experience and precision. Most of the cosmetic surgeons undergo special training to master the surgical procedure. Research on your surgeon and the surgical procedure thoroughly before you take the plunge. Go through the reviews of other patients. Zero upon a surgeon only when you are fully satisfied and convinced about their credibility. Though a little expensive, it makes sense to opt for an experienced surgeon with a higher success rate. Most of the cosmetic surgeons are plastic surgeons who undergo special training to master the surgical procedure.
  2. Are you eligible for the surgery? Not all the people with the same problems can be treated identically. What works for one may not produce the desired result for another. Factors such as the nature and extent of the skin damage, age, as well as other medical problems (such as diabetes or heart problems which may interfere with the surgery triggering complications), should be extensively discussed with the surgeon before the surgery. Do not follow what the world is doing blindly. Go for a surgery that will work the best for you.
  3. Are you ready for the changes that the surgery will bring along? From dietary restrictions to lifestyle modifications, there will be changes post a facial cosmetic surgery. Some people find it difficult and suffocating to cope up with the changes. They long for the life they used to live. In extreme cases, people may even go into depression over this.
  4. A facial cosmetic surgery, no matter how advanced, comes with their share of pros and cons. In some cases, the demerit or complications can affect your life drastically. Thus, do not be impulsive in making your decision. Take your time. Understand the changes the surgery will bring along and if you are ready to embrace them.
  5. How well are you financially equipped for the surgery? The advanced facial cosmetic surgeries can leave a big hole in the pocket. Make sure you are financially prepared to go for the surgery.
  6. A facial surgery is an important decision of your life. Make sure your family and loved ones are informed about the same. You need their love and support the most.

PRP for Vampire Facial - What You Need To Know?

PRP is a latest, state of the art technology that employs non-surgical methods to stimulate hair growth in case of hair loss.

Advancements in research have enabled scientists to make new inroads in the field of wound and tissue healing. The result of these researches is PRP, which is a natural way to rejuvenate your scalp, skin and stimulate your hair growth.

How does PRP Work?

The presence of mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products in human blood contain specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. PRP has been used to heal skin and wounds for over two decades now. Apart from this, it finds use in oral surgery, cosmetic surgery and neurosurgery as well. It is also the promising treatment to promote hair growth.

Benefits:

  • It is a progressive healing treatment that doesn't require surgery.
  • Simple, rapid and highly effective system.
  • Autologous (from patient's own blood).
  • The system is biocompatible and xeno-free, so there shouldn't be any safety concerns.
  • An increase in the concentration of platelets can be observed.
  • It helps in the elimination of undesired erythrocytes, which significantly decrease the fibroblast proliferation.
  • Contains growth factors that help in the stimulation of growth of the hair follicles.
  • Can be performed preoperatively, intraoperatively, or post operatively.

PRP Facial (Vampire Facial)
The vampire facial involves topical application of the PRP combined with aeration of the skin with Micro Needling. The platelet-derived growth factors stimulate a healing response that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the skin’s tone and texture. PRP naturally improves all aspects of skin health:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin’s texture and tone
  • Naturally increases collagen production
  • Pore refinement
  • Creates a natural glow
  • Reduces acne scars

PRP Hair Restoration
PRP Hair Restoration is a non-surgical solution for hair loss in both men and women. Platelet Rich Plasma contains growth factors that naturally stimulate the development of new hair follicles while improving the health of existing hair follicles.

What to expect:
First, a blood sample is obtained and processed to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma. A topical anesthetic is applied to numb the area being treated. The PRP is then administered with a fine needle in a series of injections on the scalp.

Mild swelling and redness can be expected 1-2 days following the treatment. It is recommended to avoid vigorous activity until the swelling has subsided. There is no other downtime following the procedure. New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months, but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment.

Who should Not Have PRP treatment?

Those with heavy drug and smoking issue should avoid PRP. Also, those who drink a lot of alcohol should avoid PRP. Those suffering from platelets related ailments, sepsis, chronic liver disease, thrombocytopenia, hyperfibrinogenemia, systemic disorders and cancer should also stay away from PRP.

Conclusion

At length, PRP is a boon for all those who aren't fans of surgery or the ones who prefer a more aggressive but non-surgical approach for treatment to their ailments. The results might vary from patient to patient, but it is certainly one of the most promising technologies to stimulate hair growth and rejuvenate your skin, and the results are quite convincing. So decide wisely!

Dermal Fillers - Advanced Dermatology!

Dermal fillers (also called injectable facial fillers) are soft tissues injected into the skin. This is done to help fill up the hollowed and flattened facial features, smoothen folds and wrinkles, fatten the cheeks, correct bumps on the nose and forehead and increase the elasticity of the skin.With advancing age, your face loses firmness and volume of the facial muscles. A facelift is a non-surgical procedure which helps to restore and create healthier and more youthful features. Here are the things you should know about getting a liquid facelift with dermal fillers:

  1. The typically used dermal fillers are Juvederm, Reyslatine, Emervel, Radiesse and Belotero. There are several different kinds of fillers that are of different consistencies and volume.
  2. Fillers are composed of collagen fibers and hyaluronic acids (these come from organic sources) and a few biosynthetic compounds.
  3. A single treatment session takes about half to an hour.
  4. The swelling takes about 2 - 3days to subside and in many cases leaves no swelling.
  5. Depending upon the choice of dermal filler, the results of the facelift can last up to two years.
  6. The type of filler used, the depth to which they are introduced, the schedule of the sessions and the nature of the treatment - are all discussed and the factors are customized to fit your specific needs because each human being ages differently. Some people get facelifts to shape and sculpt a particular facial feature like the cheekbones. Facelifts are also done for sagging skin of the neck or drooping eyelids. They help tighten the loosening skin tissue layers of the jaws and chin.
  7. The fillers are not permanent and this is why they are completely safe. They can be broken down and expelled by the body naturally after a given period of time without any health risk.
  8. Restylane fillers can be used to treat dark circles, drooping eyebrows and remove bags from under your eyes.
  9. Defective structure of the lips can be corrected by dermal fillers.
  10. The advantage of a facelift using dermal fillers over a surgical treatment is that they can be altered with advancing age. Surgical solutions look fixed and artificial because they tighten the aging skin permanently.

Pigmentation - What Should You Do For Advanced Skin Care?

MD - Dermatology, MBBS

Pigmentation - What Should You Do For Advanced Skin Care?

Our skin gets its color called melanin. This is a pigment that is produced by a special kind of skin cells. When these cells get impaired then melanin production is also affected. This leads to discoloration of the skin which is called pigmentation. Pigmentation can manifest in many ways. Production of excessive melanin, excessive exposure to the sun, pregnancy and Addison's disease- all these make the skin darker. On the other hand, too little melanin production leads to the lightening of the skin. This condition is also called Vitiligo. Albinism is a medical condition where the skin color is light because of genetic reasons.

How can Pigmentation be treated?
There are a few advanced skin care procedures that treat pigmentation. Please consult a dermatologist before you go in for one of these procedures.

  1. Laser Resurfacing: It uses the laser to improve the surface of the skin and remove wrinkles, acne, dark spots etc. The two more popular techniques of laser surfacing are;

    • CO2: The Carbon Dioxide laser is used to remove warts, moles, acne and dark spots from the skin.
    • Erbium: If you have moderately deep lines and wrinkles on your face, neck, hands etc. then this technique is more effective than the CO2 led one. Also, it leaves fewer side effects.
    • Please note that patients having a very dark skin should not consider laser surfacing as this procedure may be ineffective. Laser resurfacing may be painful. Some patients may be administered medicines or sedatives to reduce pain.
  2. Chemical Peels: To exfoliate the dark skin, a special kind of chemical is applied to the skin which leads to the regeneration of a new skin. The patient must be aware that the new skin is temporarily sensitive to the sun. Chemical peels are used to treat the same skin conditions that are treated by dermabrasion.
  3. Dermabrasion: This procedure involves abrasion of the upper skin by a wire brush or a diamond wheel. For facial skin care, this process is used often. Dermabrasion allows the skin to heal itself so after the procedure is over, there is a new layer of skin on your face.  
    • Factors to consider before Dermabrasion: Patients undergoing dermabrasion must understand that during and after this procedure, they must adhere to the doctor’s instructions. If the procedures are not followed, there is a risk of contracting skin infections. Dermabrasion is a painful process so the patients must be aware of this facts also. Typically, the improvement rate of the skin, after dermabrasion, is 50%, so the expectations must be realistic.
    • Dermabrasion is used to treat the following skin conditions;
      • Skin lesions
      • Sun-damaged skin
      • Brown/ Dark spots caused by ageing
      • Wrinkles, skin growths and skin protuberances
      • Scars and Crow’s Feet

Reconstruction: Sometimes, we lose the shape and definition of our features to age and weight as well as other factors like a stressful lifestyle where eating and sleeping patterns are less than ideal.

These implants will help in better contouring in a way that will fix these imperfections in your jaw, chin and cheeks. This will give you a more polished look.
