Nipple procedures expected to increase in popularity this year

An article of The Independent revealed the popularity of nipple procedures is on the up in the cosmetic surgery world.

At first, there was widespread confusion about what a natural-looking nipple should look like. However, a recent survey conducted by The Plastic Surgery Group indicated a nipple is most attractive if it occupies 25 to 30 percent of the breast. On the other hand, many rated nipples “too large” if they occupied 50 percent or more of the breast. Cosmetic surgeons have ways to augment nipples that are too small or reduce those that are too big. A cosmetic surgeon observed an increase in women who wanted smaller nipples last year. The trend will likely continue this year.

Restoring youthful appeal through laser resurfacing procedure

Advancement in cosmetic surgery has made it possible for certain individuals to either improve or restore their physical appearance without the need of “going under the knife.” One of the non-surgical treatments available in the market is called “laser resurfacing”.

The goal of laser resurfacing is to treat unwanted skin appearance in the face or other parts of the body. People who have highly visible scars or blemishes and middle-aged individuals who have unsightly wrinkles on their faces may highly benefit from this procedure. The treatment either uses carbon dioxide or erbium depending on the severity of the skin problem. Typical laser resurfacing procedure could last for several minutes to up to two hours, and patients might experience minor discomfort due to the nature of the treatment. After the procedure, patients can stay home to recover and are given instructions on how to take care of the treated area to prevent it from infections.

The Des Moines expert surgeons of Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery offer laser resurfacing treatment for individuals who want to restore the youthful look of their skin. Book an appointment with us today by calling (515) 222-1111 to get more information about this treatment.


Cosmetic surgery procedures versus plastic surgery

People often interchangeably use the terms cosmetic surgery procedures and plastic surgery. However, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS), there are significant distinctions between the two practices.

The first main difference between the two procedures is the goal of the treatment. Cosmetic surgery’s main purpose is to defy age and improve the appearance of a particular part of a person’s body. Some examples of cosmetic surgery are breast lift, rhinoplasty, cheek enhancement, and skin rejuvenation procedures. On the other hand, the goal of plastic surgery is to restore or repair a particular part of the body either because of a defect, illness, or injury. Some samples of plastic surgery procedures include skin grafting, breast reconstruction, hand surgery, and congenital defect repairs.
