With celebrity influencers occupying the media every day with their latest cosmetic procedures, it’s hardly surprising that more and more people are making the decision to go under the knife or, more recently, under the needle. That’s correct – cosmetic surgery procedures are becoming increasingly non-invasive, giving individuals the pristine results that they want with minimal pain or downtime. With so many new technological advancements being introduced to the industry, what could we expect to see in cosmetic surgery this year? Here’s what we found.
24 Hour Boob Job
A breast enhancement is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for women around the world and slowly the procedure has become more efficient and convenient for the patient – although you don’t get much more efficient than a 24 hour boob job! The new technique is known as InstaBreast, and is able to transform a flatter chest to a more voluminous one in a matter of minutes. Simply, a site is designated on the edge of each nipple after anesthetising the areas, and then half a litre of saline solution is injected into the patient’s breast tissue. Gradually, this is absorbed, with the full effect emerging after 24 hours!
As the name suggests, we’d definitely say that this procedure is enough to make you weep a little. This cosmetic procedure is used by several athletes in order to relieve pain and accelerate the amount of time that it takes to recover. Cryotherapy has numerous cosmetic benefits, with the most popular being weight loss, but it can also treat insomnia, eczema and psoriasis. Ultimately, cryotherapy involves standing in a freezing cold tank for 2-4 minutes. Don’t underestimate us when we say freezing cold either, as we literally mean temperatures of about -90oC cold. This might sound utterly unbearable, but since these temperatures are generated via electrical technology as opposed to environmental factors, the treatment is safe and actually quite exhilarating.
Cellulite – how do you really get rid of that stubborn orange peel texture? People have pleaded and pleaded over the years, and finally we have a procedure that helps to tackle the stuff. The first ever FDA-approved minimally-invasive cellulite procedure is aimed at the bottom and thigh dimples, reducing the appearance of the rough texture by 90%! Cellfina works by breaking up networks of connective tissue bands, as these lead to puckering up on the skin’s surface. Generally, this session takes no more than 45 minutes to complete, and the results can last for up to 3 years!
The Phi Principle
Phi is known as ‘The Golden Ratio’, a precise distancing of the features of an object in order to make it appear beautiful. As you can expect, this principle has been applied to facial features, resulting in a cosmetic procedure to proportion out our face’s assets in order to make it ‘more beautiful’. Phi aims to achieve a real symmetrical face that all the A-listers are known for, and is achieved by injecting certain areas of the face with Juvederm dermal filler, producing a natural looking ‘lift’ with no invasive surgery at all.
Cosmetic surgery has massively helped women and men around the world to boost their confidence. Whether you’re looking to sculpt your body differently, or you have facial features that you’re simply not happy with, there’s bound to be a new, innovative cosmetic procedure for you.
