More Millennials and Gen Xers Using Botox to Prevent Wrinkles, Not to Just Look Younger

Botox to Prevent WrinklesBotox cosmetic injections are very popular among Americans who wish to look as young as they feel. The Food and Drug Administration approved Botox in 2002 for cosmetic use and it has steadily grown in popularity over the years. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons statistics shows that Botox injections increased by 4% from 2015 – 2016. The year 2016 saw 7.06 million injections. Though Botox used to be associated with the boomers, it is not so anymore with an increasing number of young women going for these injections that can smooth out wrinkles and provide a more youthful appearance. A recent report in INDYSTAR notes that now more millennials and Gen Xers are using Botox not just to look younger, but to prevent the formation of future wrinkles.

The report also included details from the 2016 ASPS report on Botox that analyzed the procedures performed in 2015. Here are the key points:

  • The majority of Botox users fall in the 40 to 54 age range
  • 2 million Botox injections (18 percent of the total) were performed on patients in their 30s
  • More than 100,000 injections were for patients in their 20s
  • The 19,604 injections done in teenagers represent a 2 percent increase from 2014 to 2015.

Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause frown lines, relaxing the wrinkles and its effects typically wear off in three to six months. Even though it cannot be guaranteed, doctors think that Botox use may ward off the need for more invasive procedures in future and result in a better appearance. Botox can not only soften women’s expressions but also make their face seem more relaxed. When used over time, it will prevent deeper wrinkles from forming, according to leading plastic surgeons. However, regular use would be required and once a person stops using Botox, the wrinkles may begin to form. People who continue using Botox may need only less Botox as they get older. Early users may not need fillers or more invasive procedures that are required to treat deep creases in patients who start Botox in their 40s or 50s. Botox is also cheaper for younger patients as they need only lesser amount of the injection.

With increasing use of Botox, apart from plastic surgeons’ offices, medical spas, dentists’ and gynecologists’ offices have also started offering this injection. Advertising for Botox has increased and Botox use has become normalized now. It is always best to get the service of a skilled plastic surgeon specialized in handling the injection for Botox treatment.

Buttock Augmentation – Implants Vs Brazilian Butt lift

Buttock AugmentationHow important is the way your butt looks? This may be an appropriate ice-breaker for starting a conversation on aesthetic considerations, but the truth is, that it matters a lot for many women. The passion for a rounded, firm and well-shaped posterior arises from the conception that it enhances a woman’s overall body contour and explains the increasing popularity of buttock augmentation in recent years. In Manhattan, plastic surgeons offer two methods – buttock implants and Brazilian butt lift, a natural technique which involves fat transfer.

The implant technique involves surgery to place silicone implants for enhancing the size and shape of the posterior.  Depending on the patient’s body type, the procedure starts with the surgeon making an incision either in the crease between the buttock and thigh or top of the crease between the buttocks. A pocket is created to hold the implant and after it is placed, the incision is closed with sutures. These implants can be round or oval in shape and have soft and smooth textured surfaces. The most common implant option is one filled with solid silicone. Durability is important as butt implants have to support great weight every time the person sits down. Moreover, the come with several limitations:

  • Risk of implant movement/displacement, fluid to collection and capsular contracture
  • Another butt implant procedure may be needed 8 to 12 years after the initial procedure
  • High risks of infection
  • Implants are a foreign object that may be rejected by the body
  • Prolonged healing period
  • Final look is far less natural

Many women now prefer the Brazilian butt lift over butt implants for their safety and natural-looking appearance. This procedure enhances the volume and shape of your buttocks with fat taken from other areas of your body. In this cosmetic surgical treatment, excess fat is first removed from the back, stomach, or thighs via gentle liposuction. The collected fat is purified to remove the dead fat cells and then re-injected into your buttocks.  The main condition to be a candidate for this procedure is that you should have sufficient fat to harvest from another area of your body. The results of the Brazilian butt lift are superior that offered through implants. Other benefits:

  • Minimal scarring and less risk of side effects
  • No foreign objects are used
  • The final result is more natural in both look and feel
  • The recovery period is much shorter compared to implant surgery

If you are considering having a Brazilian Butt lift in Manhattan, do your research well and choose an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice with surgeons who are experts in the procedure. This is crucial for attractive outcomes as well as for safe treatment.
