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.


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.


Many people over 65 years old consider plastic surgery

A group of cosmetic surgeons in the U.S. recently observed that there is an increase in elderly whose age is 65 or older who are undergoing cosmetic surgery, an article of Financial Review reported on November 3.

In the records of data from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, procedures including facelifts and eyelid surgeries that have been done to people older than 65 have doubled in the last 20 years. Last year alone, there were 37,632 patients older than 65 who have undergone facelift procedures and 39,772 patients of the same age bracket undergone eyelid surgery. The report noted that factors like economic, cultural, and some TV shows trigger such trend. Some experts, on the other hand, opined that older people tend to undergo cosmetic surgery procedures to avoid being a victim of age discrimination.
