Millennials more likely to flaunt plastic surgery operations

A group of surgeons in the U.S. observed that Generation Y members, or millennials, are likely to post on social media regarding cosmetic surgery.

In 2015 data from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), almost 13 million recorded procedures happened last year. The group of cosmetic surgeons noted millennials accounted for about 18 percent of last year’s overall procedures. Millennials in this case are those whose ages range between 18 and 34 years old. ASAPS President Dr. Daniel Mills noted millennials have less shame about undergoing cosmetic surgery procedures. In fact, they often flaunt their work by posting pictures or discussing it on social media platforms. Surgeons also noted a significant increase in lip filler procedure last year after Kylie Jenner admitted to going through it. There were over 2 million lip filler procedures performed last year to achieve lips like Jenner’s.

Studies show using an e-cig can cause undue cosmetic surgery complications

A group of cosmetic surgeons in the U.S. recently issued a warning for cosmetic surgery patients that using electronic cigarettes (e-cigs), will likely prolong the healing process of the procedure done to them, an article of Daily Mail reported on November 29.

Researchers, whose study was supported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), revealed that e-cigs could cause complications in individuals who have undergone a cosmetic surgery procedure. Reports revealed that e-cigs that contain nicotine could prolong the wound’s healing process as a result of blood flow restriction. That is why patients are advised to stop smoking cigarettes for a month before undergoing a procedure. Due to restricted blood flow, nicotine exposure also hampers the healing process of skin flaps. In another study, researchers have found out that surgery complications are significantly reduced from 40 to 20 percent when patients stopped from smoking several weeks before surgery.

How is a brachioplasty procedure done?

A brachioplasty procedure, or what’s better known as an arm lift, is done to patients to make the skin in the rear portion of their upper arm tighter—like what it looked like during their younger years. People, mostly those who have aged significantly, will likely consider brachioplasty when they’re looking to improve the appearance of their arms.

Before the procedure, expert surgeons will administer anesthesia to the target area as brachioplasty involves several incisions. Patients should note that the length of incisions will depend on the area intended to be improved and surgeons usually make a decision on how much skin will be removed. Incisions are made to reduce the sagging skin in the rear portion of the patient’s arm. The incisions are then restored through sutures or stitches, which will be removed later. The sutures used in a brachioplasty procedure are often absorbable, meaning it will be gone as the wound heals. Though patients should experience some pain and discomforts after a brachioplasty, they could immediately notice the results. Brachioplasty is also recommended for individuals who cannot improve their triceps area even with strenuous gym workouts.

If you wish to improve the appearance of your arms through a brachioplasty procedure in Des Moines, consult the Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery experts. Call our office today at (515) 222-1111 to find out how we may help you wear your favorite clothes again through cosmetic surgery.
