If you’re curious about the latest cosmetic surgery trends, you can probably just pick up a magazine and see what the Kardashians are doing. No doubt the rest of us will be following suit not long after. The gossip pages will tell you that fillers are in, but if you ask any cosmetic surgeon, this only scratches the surface of what is going on in the industry. While you might think that everyone is going under the knife to get bigger assets, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, more people are getting their implants removed these days.
Advances in surgical technology mean that breast implants are getting more and more natural looking. And the breast implants that have been placed in the past look tacky in comparison. Which is why more and more women are choosing to have them removed and opting for more natural choices to improve their look.
The mastopexy is one procedure that looks a lot more natural than implants but offers similar results. There’s also the option of having much lighter breast implants with the B Lite implants, which means less weight and less tension on the skin over time.
What’s more important is that cosmetic surgery is also getting safer, and some surgeons are getting ahead of the crowds by putting patient wellbeing at the heart of everything they do. Some cosmetic surgeons have given the entire industry a bad name, so it’s really reassuring to see some are putting the safety and wellbeing of their patients first.
Technology is helping to push the industry forward. While you might associate virtual reality with gaming or movies, it is now being used by surgeons to help empower their patients to make smarter choices. Pop on a pair of goggles and you can step inside a virtual room of mirrors and see exactly what those breast implants would look like. While it helps some people to decide they are happy with the result, it also helps others to realise that surgery isn’t the answer.
