Cosmetic surgery in India is going through a transition and major transformations are in the offing. Even the most experienced cosmetic surgeons need to literally ‘up their game’ to stay in tune with the cosmetic surgery trends. The prime aim of cosmetic surgery is to improve a person’s appearance without altering the functionality of any part.
The demand of cosmetic surgery continues to grow at the rate of 3%. Cosmetic surgery procedures are available for any part of the body and the choice to undergo cosmetic surgery is purely voluntary on the patient’s part but the results of it may be permanent. Therefore the onus is on the cosmetic surgeon to gauge the motivation and expectation of the patient before suggesting and performing a cosmetic procedure .
There are many kinds of cosmetic surgical procedures such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, eyelid surgery and nose reshaping. The new and emerging side of cosmetic surgery is the demand of non-invasive procedures. With the help of less invasive and minimally invasive methods cosmetic surgeons can now augment a part of the face without performing a full-face lift.
Cosmetic surgery deals exclusively with the perspective of beauty, which is largely based on the physical attributes and sex, age and race, which are the contributing factors to it. Cosmetic surgery is a subspecialty of plastic surgery and since its inception it has gone under many reviews regarding the ethical and moral responsibilities of cosmetic surgeons towards patient’s expectations.
While the cosmetic surgeons are trained in understanding the aesthetics of the facial anatomy their training lacks in minimally invasive procedures. In a recent study by the ASPS more than quarter a million people opted for non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures in 2018 than 2017. This is a huge difference and indicates the pattern shift in perception and execution of cosmetic surgeries.
Minimally invasive treatments in cosmetic surgery result in
- Less pain
- Quicker recovery and results
- Less or no scarring
- Low health care costs
In cosmetic surgery these procedures use newer and fast evolving technologies and techniques give excellent results and make procedures such as facelift and eye lifts accessible to everyone. Botox, thread lifts, aggravated facial engineering, peels and dermabrasion are some of the high-ranking procedures opted by patients worldwide. Hair treatment and regrowth options such as PRP treatment, QR678 treatment and Stem Cell Therapy have overtaken the traditional hair fall treatments.
There are about 20 facial muscles that come into play when administrating non-invasive treatments to patients. The lack of academic and practical skills in the existing curriculum of cosmetic surgery leaves a learning gap that International Academy of Facial Reconstructive Surgery (IAFCS) fill in. Cosmetic surgeons benefit from learning the non-invasive treatments because it lets them present their patients with a better treatment plan with quicker and faster results.
