American society of plastic surgeons (ASPS) has prepared the forecast of the most popular procedures associated with aesthetic surgery, for the year 2020.
New York dermatologist Doris Day, MD, calls fractional facelift “the most exciting and revolutionary of all the new technologies of rejuvenation … ever”. According to him, the treatment is based on microresistivity of the skin – the technique by which “are removed from tens to hundreds of tiny full-size nuclei of the skin”, which leave between them bridges of normal skin that allows to obtain the contraction of the skin and achieve a lifting effect without surgery and subsequent quick recovery. Dr. day predicts that this “facelift” will be very popular for the jaw line, neck and, finally, in the region around the brow and eyes.
Another trend will be the abandonment of General anesthesia. In particular, facial plastic surgeon David Hartman, MD, says that almost any aesthetic procedure can now be done when the patient is awake, thanks to modern techniques of sedation: “In our practice, we now perform a face lift or eyebrow rejuvenation of the eyelids, the modelling of the body with high resolution and transfer procedure of fat, so that customers feel comfortable, making these procedures safer, less costly and providing more easy and fast recovery”.
2020 will continue the trend of 2019 in terms of correction of the jaw line, I’m sure a plastic surgeon Sanjay Grover of California. Common procedures for contouring the face include injectable fillers such as Radiesse, options, hyaluronic acids such as Juvéderm and Revanesse Versa Voluma, and energy treatments for firming and tightening the skin.
Implants in 2020 will be increasingly replaced by the living fat. The transfer of living fat – the procedure that Dr. Hartman briefly describes as “the elimination of fat where it is unwanted and placing it where you need it”. In addition, more and more women are looking for alternative solutions for implants to increase breast.
Changes are observed in the segment of fillers for the face, with an emphasis on their durability. After the huge success of the devices for tightening the body the popularity Emsculpt for muscle building is just beginning. Dr. day explains that, in combination with these machines the use of long-lasting fillers can provide improved results. “An exciting trend that I see is the mixing of biostimulants such as Sculptra or Radiesse, for use on the neck, arms, abdomen. The combination of such fillers with the action of pull-up devices, gave us excellent long-term results to eliminate cellulite and loose skin”.
With the emergence of innovative technologies, Dr. Dey says that plasma skin resurfacing faded into the background, but she can be reborn with the advent of new plasma machines. “I used plasma device almost 15 years ago, but switched to the laser. I’m testing new devices to see if there are any updates or is it simply a revival of older technologies.” Dr. Grover adds: “facial Rejuvenation using the thermal energy created by ultrasound or RF energy, will continue to take first place in the list of non-surgical options for such procedures.”
