Recently, Dr. Thomas Wright, medical director at Laser Lipo and Vein Center, was highlighted in an article published on INC.com.
The INC article covered the many ways that cosmetic surgery procedures have changed over the past decade. The article stated that during the past decade or so, most cosmetic procedures were not really considered legitimate procedures, rather they were “fringe” treatments. This was due to the fact that there were many scandals, side effects, and low-quality results associated with them, causing these treatments to be dismissed by the general public.
However, these cosmetic procedures are now being embraced and sought after. Procedures such as hair restoration and liposuction are now very popular. In fact, about 16 million people undergo cosmetic treatments and procedures every year.
Technological Advancements Bring Favorable Results
The article points out that cosmetic surgery and procedures have seen huge technological advances that are providing better results, and fewer side effects. Liposuction is probably the one procedure that has seen the most changes. Older lipo procedures often came with poor results and some very dangerous side effects. Currently, with the newer technologies, it is now one of the most sought after procedures.
New liposuction techniques are now considered “liposculpture”, rather than “liposuction”. New liposuction technologies include SmartLipo and Ultrasonic Liposuction. Included in these new techniques is fat transfer surgery.
Fat Transfer Benefits
With fat transfer, a patient is offered two benefits: removal of unwanted fat, and the sculpting and contouring effects of liposuction. These are due to the fact that fat is removed from one area of the body – which has unwanted fat deposits – and then transferred to areas that need augmentation, such as the buttocks or breasts.
Dr. Wright stated in the article, “The technology of autologous fat transfer is revolutionizing body sculpting cosmetic surgery. This technology has allowed me to significantly change patient’s shapes without synthetic or artificial implants…and provides much smoother results that look very natural.”
Dr. Wright says that the improvements in cosmetic procedures, in conjunction with the technological advancements have made many procedures very desirable. In fact, he says that he and his staff have seen a large increase in clients who are seeking many of these new and improved procedures, including liposuction and fat transfer.
