Restylane® and Juvéderm® are types of facial filling cosmetic injectables composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring compound within the body that diminishes with age. These injectables fill in deep lines and wrinkles as well as areas that have lost volume like the cheeks and lips, and it was even approved by the FDA for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21. Perlane® is similar to Restylane®, but contains larger hyaluronic acid particles to fill in deeper wrinkles. Both facial filling options are available with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, included for patient comfort (Restylane-L® and Perlane-L®). Botox® and Dysport® are made of different forms of purified botulinum toxin and work by relaxing muscles on the forehead and around and between the eyes that cause wrinkles.

In order to save $25 on Latisse®, all you have to do is become a Brilliant Distinctions® member and purchase the new 5 mL bottle of Latisse® before September 30th, 2012.

Cosmetic Surgery Trends This Summer

Cosmetic Surgery Trends This SummerSimilar to the fashion industry when it comes to fads and trends, what was popular in cosmetic surgery last year may not be popular in the following years. RealSelf.com, a plastic surgery information and patient review site, recently released a report of summer cosmetic surgery trends based on searches performed on their website including both surgical and non-surgical procedures. They found more people are now opting for procedures that provide natural-looking results.

Just in time for swimsuit season, plastic surgery patients begin focusing on their bodies. Whether they’re looking to regain their pre-baby appearance or wanting to enhance other features, procedures of the breasts and body are always popular trends during the summer. Breast augmentation remains the most popular cosmetic procedure in the US and is increasingly popular during the summer. However, as a part of mommy makeover surgery, many women also choose to undergo breast reduction and/or breast lift this time of year.

Mommy makeover surgery is a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to restore a mother’s pre-pregnancy appearance. After pregnancy and childbirth, many women struggle to eliminate excess belly fat or retighten abdominal muscles even with the best diet and exercise efforts. A typical mommy makeover surgery includes cosmetic breast surgery, tummy tuck, and liposuction depending on the patient’s individual needs. According to RealSelf’s report, 98% of patients who rated mommy makeover surgery on the site said it was “worth it.”

For patients who are interested in butt augmentation, a plastic surgeon can perform Brazilian butt lift via fat grafting, which involves the use of liposuction to remove excess fat that will be purified and re-injected into the buttocks to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks without using synthetic materials. Patients love Brazilian butt lift results because they can use the fat they don’t want from certain areas of the body to improve other areas. According to RealSelf search results, Brazilian butt lift is the 4th most popular procedure on the website.

Trends show that patients continue to seek less invasive options for plastic surgery like Botox®, Dysport®, and facial fillers, but more patients are becoming interested in the “natural” options for facial rejuvenation which uses the patient’s own blood plasma or fat to fill in areas of lost volume and jump-start the collagen production process. Similar to the Brazilian butt lift technique, fat transfer is also used for facial rejuvenation.

No matter what type of cosmetic surgery a patient is interested in, plastic surgery research is vital. It is important to find a board certified plastic surgeon who has experience in performing the procedure of your interest. In fact, RealSelf reports an average of 15% increase in patient satisfaction when plastic surgery is performed by a board certified plastic surgeon with experience performing that particular procedure.
