Why Your Plastic Surgery Options Are Better than Ever Before

 Cosmetic plastic surgery is safer, more advanced, and more effective than ever before. Advancements in surgical techniques and technology have provided plastic surgeons in CT and elsewhere with the tools and skills to make their jobs easier and more predictable.

If you’ve been debating whether or not to have plastic surgery, here are just a few reasons why now is a great time to improve your appearance.

Better Technology

Plastic surgeons have access to more sophisticated technology and equipment that make cosmetic procedures safer and more reliable. For example, 3D-imaging programs like VECTRA® have revolutionized the physician-patient consultation by bringing your post-procedure body to life.

VECTRA uses a photo of you to create a computer-simulated 3D avatar that can be digitally manipulated to show you what results you can expect from various cosmetic procedures. This helps you get a clear understanding of what can be achieved through different plastic surgery treatments and ensures you and your surgeon are on the same page. It also allows your surgeon to better plan and prepare for your procedure so there are no surprises the day of your surgery.

Thanks to this enhanced level of precision, you can expect more accurate results and an all-around better experience than you could in years past.

Longer-Lasting Results

With the help of technology, new and  innovative products are now readily available for aesthetic uses. For example, today’s silicone gel breast implants are more durable and cohesive than the silicone implants used in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Thanks to improved design and better materials, the breast implants used today are much safer and feel more natural than their predecessors.

Improvements in surgical technique also contribute to longer-lasting results. Facelift surgery used to be performed by tightening just the overlying skin on the face. Now, however, the underlying muscle is also tightened, fat pads are repositioned, and liposuction or fat grafting is used when needed. This comprehensive approach creates a more natural-looking result and will last many more years than if the skin alone was tightened.

A significant benefit of these product improvements is that you will enjoy your beautiful results longer and will need fewer follow-up procedures over time, which ultimately will save you time and money. Just be sure that you find a trustworthy and reliable board-certified plastic surgeon who is up-to-date on the most current trends and technology. Be wary of practitioners who claim they can achieve the same results without surgery. You’re likely to get minimal, short-lived improvements.

More Options to Achieve Results

In prior years, the number of plastic surgery procedures was very limited, and the surgeries themselves produced cookie-cutter results. That is no longer the case, as the options for plastic surgery have never been greater.

Take abdominoplasty for example. Also called a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty used to be a one-size-fits-all procedure. Now there are many different types of tummy tuck surgery depending on how much skin and fat need to be removed and the degree of muscle repair required.

With today’s more plentiful and more advanced cosmetic surgery options, you can personalize your procedure in ways not available in the past. And the best part of having multiple options is that the solution you select will create more tailored results to ensure you get the right look for your body type.
