For generations, men and women alike have taken steps to change their appearances to align with the beauty standards of the day. From tight fitting corsets to highly invasive early versions of cosmetic surgery, the desire to improve one’s appearance is not a new phenomenon. Thankfully, what has changed over the years is the technology we have at our disposal to provide our clients with the appearance they desire.
As we age our body changes, and our skin is one of the places those changes become outwardly visible. When we get older our skin has less and less collagen in it which causes it to lose its elasticity. Most people also have less facial fat as they age which causes the skin on their faces to droop. Does this sound familiar to you?
Most people are fairly familiar with breast augmentations, or boob jobs as many people call them. But breast reduction surgery is not as commonly known as a procedure. When the world seems to glorify large breasts some may wonder why anyone would want to get rid of theirs. However, candidates for this surgery know exactly the reasons.
The term tummy tuck is tossed around in conversations from time to time, but not everyone really knows the details of this surgical procedure. It’s important to remember that recovery will be different for each patient. So you can’t solely depend on the advice of friends who have been there before. Everyone wants to bounce right back into their normal lives, but it’s important to give yourself all the time you need.
For many years injectables have been the first choice for people who are interested in creating a youthful and fresh appearance without undergoing any surgical procedures. For this reason, Botox has gained significantly in popularity and women of all ages are investing in this product as a means to maintain youthfulness.
Injectables have become a very popular segment of the Cosmetics industry. Years ago, patients might hide the fact that they have gotten injections like Botox and Juvederm, but today it’s so commonplace that men and women alike where it confidently on their faces. But even though public opinion has shifted there are still plenty of people who harbor fears about the process and have waited far too long to give it a try.
Popular culture would have you believe that every woman wants to have very large breasts. But that simply isn’t true. While some women choose to enhance the size of their breasts others elect for another procedure commonly known as breast reduction surgery. Clinically this procedure is known as a reduction mammaplasty and is used to decrease the size of a woman’s breasts.
Just as trends change in fashion and music, they also change in ideal body type. While in the 1990’s ultra-thin was the ideal appearance, for the last decade or so fuller, rounder figures have been all the rage. Of course, all bodies are different. And for some, it’s nearly impossible to achieve the full backside that is presented on television and in magazines.
Everyone wants to look good, and some people are willing to pay for it. Even the most health-conscious and fitness crazed among us struggle with problem areas on their bodies where the fat just won’t seem to come off. For years there was one solution, liposuction. And still, to this day, this is a great tool for positively changing the shape and contour of your body. However, there are some patients who opt for body sculpting (also known as body contouring) procedures instead.
