The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) released new data that shows the continuous increase in the demand for cosmetic procedures over the last year. Types of procedures chosen by the patients have changed since the start of the new millennium. In cities like Manhattan, New York City and other U.S. cities many women undergo body sculpting surgeries, especially breast augmentation that remains the most popular procedure performed in the U.S. for the second year, according to the ASPS.
Women choose to undergo this procedure for different reasons such as to enhance the breast volume, to correct breasts that differ in size and shape, and to reshape the breasts making them firmer and rounder. This augmentation procedure can be performed using two techniques. It can be done using FDA-approved implants (saline, silicone, gummy bear and IDEAL implants) that are inserted through an incision and placed above or below the chest muscle. Another technique is composite breast augmentation. This involves fat grafting combined with implants for a better outcome.
Fat grafting or fat transfer method in NYC is performed at leading plastic surgery practices by trained and experienced plastic surgeons. The fat transfer method is transferring your own fat to the breasts after it is purified. The limitation of this method is that the patient should have sufficient fat in her body that can be extracted from donor areas and injected into the breasts to achieve the desired volume and shape. This method is perfect for correcting small defects or slight shape irregularity. It brings a more natural look and feel since your own tissue being used. Breast augmentation using fat transfer has increased 72 percent in 2016.
According to the ASPS, facelifts have become more popular making them acquire pride of place among the top most popular procedures, along with breast augmentation, liposuction, nose reshaping and eyelid surgery. Facelifts have increased 4% in 2016 and surgeons now utilize many advanced techniques that contribute to a more natural look and feel.
Breast augmentation in Manhattan or New York City should be provided only by a good surgeon who is known for his/her surgical skill and expertise. The advantage of choosing an advanced plastic surgery facility is that the surgeon will show you the expected results via superior imaging technology such as Axis 3, Vectra 3D and Oculus Rift 3D imaging glasses. Apart from giving you a clear idea regarding the results, these technologies also enable you to take an informed decision.
