News for rejuvenation presented at congress
Between December 2 and 4, I was at the The Cutting Edge Facial Rejuvenation 2010 convention in New York. The event was organized by Dr. Sherrell Aston and Daniel Baker, focusing on surgeries and procedures for facial rejuvenation. At the same time, there was a symposium on minimally invasive surgeries, for body contouring and advances in aesthetic breast surgeries. These will be themes for an upcoming article. Here, I am going to talk about new issues discussed at the Congress in relation to the face.
Some more current techniques were presented based on the knowledge of the physiological process of the changes that occur in the face, as a result of aging. This process passes through the atrophy of the skin, the subcutaneous region, the musculature and the bone, leading to the fall of the tissues, a brutish, rude and severe. The purpose of modern facial rejuvenation surgeries is not necessarily stretch the skin, but rather provide a younger, softer, more sophisticated face - and why not? - sensual. The use of these grafts, associated with germ cell transplantation, is a great promise in facial rejuvenation.
Among the most modern techniques, we have the most modern techniques of facial rejuvenation, making it more elegant. short scars (
short scars ) and the MACS Lift ("minimum access cranial suspension"), with precise indications for certain patients. Another very widespread technique is facial lipoenxertia, associated with the facelift, which provides a restoration of facial volume. It is necessary to be very careful, however, with the exaggerated use of this technique, that can generate a "fat" face, not defined - what defines the face are the skin and the bone structure and, therefore, the exaggeration in the placement of grafts of fat can de-characterize it. Finally, the use of these grafts, associated with germ cell transplantation, is a great promise in facial rejuvenation, both in relation to volume and skin quality. Facial structures
In facial rejuvenation surgeries, facial structures define a face in an important way. For example, the position of the eyebrow is essential for a harmonious face. Thus, a very low eyebrow is not attractive and may demonstrate melancholy. Already a well positioned and inclined eyebrow can leave the face more attractive, with more dynamism and harmony. So, position, shape, and inclination are very important factors for facial beauty.
Another very important factor is concern about upper and lower eyelid surgeries. You should opt for more conservative surgeries on skin removal and fat pockets, following the principle of "
no touch ". In this way, the size and shape of the eyelid cleft is maintained, or even a lost shape is restored as a result of aging. Always remembering that the proportions considered ideal for men and women are what we consider the " golden proportions ". The nose also suffers from the aging process, increasing in size and falling. In this sense, it is very common to apply rhinoplasty, associated with facial rejuvenation surgery, to achieve a young and harmonious face.
Another important aspect is lip rejuvenation: keeping lips young, with more volume, indicates a sophisticated face, sexy. This is because the loss of volume and lip contour leads to the atrophy of the so-called "vermilion", resulting in the appearance of perilabial wrinkles, which make the face less attractive. The increase of the lips, maintaining the proportions between the top and bottom, as well as the interior region, can lead to a more youthful and beautiful result.Another very important point concerns the surgery for neck correction, as well as the fall of the skin, muscle flaccidity and fat deposition. The neck has a fundamental aspect for the face. We can even say that it functions as a frame for the face. Thus, a well-defined neck generates elegance, "slims" the face and makes it much younger.
Among the palliative procedures for face rejuvenation, we can mention lasers, radiofrequency, sound, fillers and botulinum toxin. Currently, the use of this toxin can be done in both the upper, middle and lower part of the face - including the neck. It is worth mentioning that the chronic and regular use of botulinum toxin can act as a preventive method for facial aging.
On the other hand, the use of filling substances can lead to the characterization of the face, resembling a caricature and giving an appearance more coarse to the face. Lasers need to be very well indicated because of the risk of skin depigmentation, the appearance of erythema (redness) and scars. Surgical procedures associated with laser need to be done with great discretion and care. Do not expect a surgical result from a palliative procedure.
The ideal time to perform a facial rejuvenation surgery should not be limited by chronological age: the earlier the indication, the better the results and the longer the durability.
O facial aging should not necessarily represent the loss of beauty - maturity can and should be beautiful. In my opinion, the postponement of face surgery, due to the adoption of palliative procedures, can de-characterize the face and impair the final result of a facial rejuvenation surgery.
Whenever you think about having a plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure, look for a plastic surgeon member of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery (SBCP)
In the office, one of the most recurring female complaints is localized fat. Many do not achieve truly effective results with non-invasive aesthetic exercises, diets or treatments, since fat cells deposited in certain regions are, in fact, very difficult to remove. Therefore, often the only solution to resolve this problem is to resort to plastic surgery.
About 78 % of Brazilian women have some type of hair coloration. Lights, dyes, reflections, Californian lights and wicks are among the most popular treatments. To maintain the vibrant color of newly colored hair, extreme care is required as it can weaken, become porous and thus lose color faster. To help coloring keep your hair beautiful and comfortable.
