What Plastic Surgery Trends Are “Millennials” Going For?

There seems to be a lot of talk about the “Millennial Generation” lately as they are the ones most likely to share their stories on social media platforms such as Instagram & Facebook.

What’s the “Millennial Generation” Considered?

plastic surgery trends millennials
Before we reveal the 4 most sought after procedures Millennials are turning to plastic surgeons for, let’s first establish what a “Millennial” is. Most sources seem to confirm that the “Millennial Generation” involves both men and women who were born between years 1980 – 2000 and are aged anywhere from 18 years old – 35 years old currently.

Plastic Surgery Trends for Millennials

1. Breast Implants/Augmentation

Breast implants remain the most popular plastic surgery procedure that Millennials turn to in order to enhance the shape and size of their breasts. One of the main reasons why this procedure is very popular now is because of the evolution of the breast implant itself & the techniques used to implant them. Today, board-certified surgeons such as Dr. Golshani are able to provide women subtle, natural-looking breasts that were not possible when they were first introduced.

2. Rhinoplasty (i.e. Nose Job)

The nose is a very delicate structure that Millennials are turning to plastic surgeons in order to correct bumps or other deformities that we perceive as unattractive. The term “selfie” has given rise to the popularity of this procedure as “selfies” directly involve facial shots where the nose is prominent. Rhinoplasty, or nose jobs, successfully corrects the nose for a more attractive, symmetrical appearance.

3. Mommy Makeover

Many Millennial mothers are turning to solutions that help them restore their bodies pre-pregnancy after exercise & diet have not fulfilled their expectations. However, it has been found that Millennial mothers want to look & feel their absolute best & mommy makeovers are a great way to receive a bundle of procedures that will rejuvenate your body.

4. Liposuction (popular in the Spring!)

The Millennials comprise a very large amount of Liposuction cases, which is steadily growing throughout the years. The rise in obesity play a large factor in weight loss substitutes such as tummy tucks or liposuction to remove bothersome fat, or problem areas, that refuse to go away through exercise & diet modifications. Spring is a popular time because both men & women begin thinking about their “beach body” that they will like to have ready by summertime where social media posts are very high.

How to Successfully Stick to Your New Year’s Resolution!

new years resolution tipsThe New Year provides an ideal time for most people to start new projects, or at least to start working on changing some undesirable elements of the past year. Unfortunately, many New Year’s resolutions are in the form of long lists of demands that put you under pressure to deliver with a ticking clock. You get worn out soon after.

Sticking to your New Year goals is not necessarily a matter of self discipline. According to Joseph Shrand, M.D., and Harvard Medical School psychiatry instructor, the human brain is constantly trying to balance feelings of pleasure and restraint. Rational desires, such as self-restraint, reside in the front of the brain, which is the most recently evolved section of the brain, and most vulnerable to getting overruled by natural instincts.

Pleasure, on the other hand, lives in the most primitive part of the brain that has spent eternity learning to reward the person with a satisfying dose of dopamine when the urges overpower you.

How to Successfully Stick to Your New Year’s Resolutions

So, how do you empower the rational section of your brain to triumph and stick to New Year resolutions?

1. Create a plan.
A plan is intended to keep you on track and focused on your primary goal. You are less likely to make impulse purchases when shopping with a grocery list than when trying to recall the items to buy from your memory. So, rather than simply making a decision to do something, note it down somewhere and constantly remind yourself to stay accountable.

2. Break down big goals into smaller goals.
Saving $1,000 more by the end of the year seems much harder compared to saving $90 per month. The same logic applies with long-term weight loss goals, or any other objective for that matter. However, breaking down a larger goal into more manageable segments makes it easier for you to focus and stay accountable.

3. Tackle one goal at a time.

While multi-tasking seems like a smart approach to get more work done within a shorter time, using this approach with your resolutions can derail the process. It takes effort to replace bad habits with healthy ones, so it is better that you focus on one goal at a time as you build momentum and a sense of self-actualization.

Lastly, it is important that you pre-commit to increase your chances of success. This means eliminating any threats and obstacles that may keep you from reaching your goals. For instance, choosing to work in a place with no internet connection, rather than trusting yourself to not use an available network eliminates the possibility of derailment.

What Happens After Dramatic Weight Loss?

plastic surgery after dramatic weight lossNow that the New Year (2017) is here, many people will attempt to lose weight. It’s one of the most popular “New Year’s Resolutions”, but also happens to be equally one of the most failed New Year’s Resolutions. In any event, some people will stick to their guns & end up shedding off several pounds of unwanted fat.

However, not everyone benefits from diet & exercise … or perhaps they become too impatient. For some, it may be wiser to select a form of bariatric surgery such as gastric sleeve or gastric bypass surgery. For others, they may turn to Beverly Hills plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Golshani.

When You Should Consider Plastic Surgery After Dramatic Weight Loss

• If you notice sagging skin in multiple areas including the face, neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, back & thighs.

• If you have lost a dramatic amount of weight (dramatic would be considered 40% of your BMI or more) as a result of bariatric surgery, diet & exercise.

• If your weight has stabilized following bariatric surgery (i.e. weight loss surgery), diet, or exercise, which may occur 18 months or more, following your weight loss.

Weighing the Pros & Cons

For many, a surgical option may not be in our best interest, however with amount of training, education & technology surgeons have available today most procedures are very comfortable & do not involve much pain or discomfort, as well as feature diminished post-op recovery times. Aside from this, there are considerations to be aware of.

Pros

• Say goodbye to loose skin, enabling you to fit into your clothes much easier.
• No more overhanging skin that may cause pain or discomfort for some due to chafing & rashes. Infections are also possible from overhanging skin.
• Significantly enhance your self-esteem and feel much better about your body in general.

Cons

• The results gained from surgery may not meet your expectations.
• You may have permanent scarring that may be minimized through the use of advanced surgical techniques by an experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Golshani.
• Your results may be affected by lifestyle choices, aging & diet choices.

Popular Procedures to Consider After Dramatic Weight Loss

Liposuction remains one of the most popular procedures to lose the unwanted sagging skin & overhanging skin, however other plastic or cosmetic procedures may benefit you greater and they are tummy tuck, breast lift, arm lift, thigh lift, breast reduction, or others. Your plastic surgeon will review all options with you in person to find out which ones are the best.

The Emotional Phases of Cosmetic Surgery

post surgical depressionChoosing to change a physical aspect of yourself through surgery is a very personal and emotional thing. It is not unusual for a person considering cosmetic surgery to experience mixed feelings of excitement and jitters during consultation followed by panic and self-doubt after the procedure.

Depending on your procedure, it can take several months for you to see the final results, during which time you may experience a range of emotions. These feelings are completely normal and short-lived, but it helps to be prepared for the vacillating emotions associated with cosmetic surgery recovery.

Here are some of the emotional phases you can expect:

“What have I done?”
The first few days following cosmetic surgery are usually the hardest. This feeling of panic is likely to kick in 3 to 5 days after the procedure. During your first week of recovery, you are required to get plenty of rest. The lack of activity leaves you with a lot of time to ponder your actions and doubts.

“I don’t look like myself!”
As your body continues to heal in the second and third week of recovery, you will begin to see the results of the procedure. The changes to your former self will be more apparent, which may lead to conflicting feelings – especially if the transformation was drastic.

“Maybe this was a mistake!”
Once the changes become apparent, you may start to experience feelings of self-doubt for the next 2 to 3 months every time you look at yourself in the mirror. If the procedure was in preparation for a future event, such as a wedding or holiday, you might feel empty after the excitement and anticipation of the event passes.

I’m so glad I had the courage to get the procedure!

Most of the people who undergo cosmetic surgery are pleased and satisfied with the results and their new self. 3 to 6 months after the procedure, you will be in a position to realize the impact of the procedure, which will boost your confidence.

Feelings of panic after plastic surgery may last for a few days to several weeks, and are strongest when you’re least occupied. To prevent and manage your post-op stress, you should prepare appropriately before the procedure by:

1. Creating a strong support system with your spouse, sibling, parent, friend, or adult child who you can freely talk with about your anxieties and feelings

2. Setting up the essentials so you can rest with minimal distractions – healthy foods, books, magazines, clothes, TV remote, etc.

3. Follow your surgeon’s instructions with regard to rest, medications, alcohol avoidance, nutrition, etc.

Lastly, different procedures have different healing processes. So, be patient and don’t rush any judgments until the final results show. If you experience any problems during your recovery, don’t hesitate to contact your surgeon for assistance.

Dermal Fillers 101: Let’s Discuss the Basics

beverly hills dermal fillers

Difference between Botox® & Dermal Fillers.
Among the treatments available for eliminating facial wrinkles, fillers and injectables are perhaps the most common ones, but the two are very different, says Dr. Golshani. While injectables like Botox® and Dysport work by temporarily paralyzing active muscle, dermal fillers work by plumping the problem area to restore its volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Dermal fillers include Juvederm, Selphyl, Perlane, Restylane, and Radiesse, all of which can be used to re-contour the face and correct wrinkles by restoring plumpness to the cheeks, chin, lips, lower eyes, and other areas that have lost volume due to aging. These procedures can:

Soften fine lines and wrinkles

Enhance hollow areas of the face

Enhance the appearance of settled scars

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Fillers are administered by injecting the top layer of the skin with hyaluronic acid, or some other naturally-occurring substance in the body that plumps the tissue to create a soft, natural-looking outcome.

The procedure is painless, and the level of discomfort largely depends on the area being treated. Dermal fillers are typically prepared with lidocaine, which is numbing agent. Furthermore, a numbing agent can be applied to the treatment area to manage pain.

For the highly sensitive areas such as the lips, the doctor can perform a nerve block, which is a minimally painful procedure that numbs the lips.

Dermal Fillers – The Procedure

Before the filler treatment, your doctor will evaluate your facial structure and skin tone to gain better understanding of the areas that need filling.

Then, the filler material will be injected into the designated areas. Topical numbing cream can be applied beforehand, though most patients find the pain manageable. The process takes between 15 and 60 minutes depending on the number of areas that need treatment.

No downtime is required after treatment with injectable fillers, though you can use an ice pack to reduce any swelling that occurs.

The duration of the dermal filler depends on the product used, though it typically lasts 6-12 months. You need more than one treatment.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

The ideal candidate for dermal fillers should be in good general health, a non-smoker, and be well informed about the outcome of the procedure. For instance, you should know of the wide selection of fillers available, and be aware that the results from dermal fillers are different from those of a facelift or forehead lift.

Dermal fillers are safe, with rare occurrence of allergic reactions or serious complications from the procedure. However it is important to consult with your doctor to identify if the filling injection treatment will address your concerns.

Why Winter is Popular for Cosmetic Plastic Surgery!

winter popular cosmetic plastic surgeryTo maximize the results from cosmetic surgery, it is important to plan according to the season, says Dr. Golshani, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon. It is rational to undergo certain cosmetic procedures during certain months of the year to conceal the scars and swelling, allow enough time for safe recovery, and provide an appropriate alibi if you wish to keep your surgical procedure hidden from some people.

“it is important to plan according to the season.”

Why Winter is the Perfect Time for Plastic Surgery

But universally, the winter months, from mid-December through to March, present the perfect time to undergo any type of cosmetic procedure, from liposuction to facelift. The fact that the cooler weather requires bulkier clothing means that you can conveniently conceal bruising, swelling and bandages, and avoid the damaging effect from exposure to the sun.

Items like scarves, hats, and turtlenecks hide the effects of rhinoplasty, eyelid tuck, facelift, brow lift, and laser resurfacing. Bulky sweaters and trousers, on the other hand, can easily camouflage the obvious change in body habits from tummy tuck or liposuction, breast reduction, or breast augmentation.

Also, the long holiday weekends around the Christmas and New Year festivities contribute further time off so you have enough time to recover from the procedure without taking extra leave from work, even as you hide away from colleagues, friends, and family.

That said, there are a couple cosmetic procedures that mostly occur during wintertime:

Chemical peels and other laser procedures.
The cooler winter months make it easier to have less contact with the sun, and you can easily stay sheltered for one to two weeks after treatment. Additionally, your winter wardrobe should keep you completely covered up, exposing less skin and increasing your chances for exceptional post-surgery success.

Laser hair removal.
Sunspot removal procedures generally require that you don’t tan your skin. Lasers generally target different pigmented structures on the patient’s skin. If there’s background skin pigmentation, like a tan, the procedure will require much lower energies to be used over a greater number of treatment sessions.

Since the chances of laying out in the sun on a beach or by a pool are very low during the winter months, and many people are realizing that tanning beds can be quite unhealthy, your skin should be bright and perfect for lasers to target sun damages areas of hair follicles on the skin.

Sclerotherapy.
Winter is also a great time for the treatment of unwanted varicose veins and spider veins on the legs. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a solution into the visible veins to cause them to collapse, followed by compression to help prevent them from returning to their original state.

It is recommended that patients wear compression hose after the procedure to optimize the outcome. This is much easier in winter than in the hot summer sun.

Final Note
Winter is a great time for many cosmetic procedures & not just the examples listed above. You can have exponential success if you properly follow post-procedure instructions. You can also take the opportunity to diet, exercise, or change your hairstyle for a complete transformation.

Actions Speak Louder than Words – Real Results by Dr. Golshani!

We’re sure you’ve heard it at least once: “Actions speaks louder than words.” At the end of the day, this phrase still holds merit. Here at Avosant, we believe actions do speak louder, which is why we would love to showcase our latest before and after results from patients who have allowed us to share their photos.

Necklift

Necklifts are not as popular as other procedures, but they still have such a lasting impact on patients who seek to reverse the signs of the natural aging process. The patient shown above was shocked when she saw how much younger she looked in the mirror after seeing herself for the first time after the procedure.

Rhinoplasty

Tummy Tuck

It’s important to keep in mind that many tummy tuck patients have already tried various diets and exercise programs & regimens that have not made any significant, lasting results. In this case, plastic & reconstructive surgery should be considered. As we can see above, the results are essentially night and day.
