Industry changes the face of plastic surgery

The advancement of cosmetic surgery has been translated in the emergence of new technologies that assist in the refinement of procedures and, at the same time, provide greater security for the doctor and the patient.

Even recent, seems far the time plastic surgeries were a merged universe of seizure and answer about the aesthetic results. The technology in this area has evolved a lot, and the globalization of information allowed Brazil to accompany these changes closely, sharing with other countries the title of reference, when it comes to aesthetics.

In this context, technology is contributing greatly to the best professional performance, simplifying procedures recently demanded huge sacrifices of the doctor and the patient.

Software simulation results of surgery

Today, doctor and patient have to plan and predict the results of plastic surgery. This is possible thanks to the US software called Mirror (a word which in English means mirror). The patient is photographed and its image digitally transferred to the computer screen.

On top of this image, the doctor will delimiting the parts to be worked, so that the patient has a clear idea of the results of surgery. This body mapping also helps the doctor plan details the procedure.

Appliance offers advantages for doctor and patient

The Lipomatic, of Belgian origin, came to revolutionize liposculpture. It differs from conventional cannula, particularly the small thickness, as well as accurately and easily to be manipulated, which causes less invasive interventions are therefore safer. A pneumatic motor (compressed air) performs a movement back-and-forth over a length of 6 mm and a frequency of 10 Hz, or 600 cycles per minute, requiring no physical effort by the surgeon. The transverse movement produced by the pressure decomposes into three physical movements: translation, vibration and rotation, that cause fat emulsifying effect which is simultaneously suctioned by the cannula.

Advantages for the doctor:

  • Expends less physical effort;
  • Can perform procedures more quickly;
  • Work difficult areas to be hit;
  • Allows operating more than one region in one session.

Advantages for the patient:

  • Lower risk;
  • Less post-operative trauma;
  • Less time in the operating room;
  • Less swelling and bruising;
  • Minor discomfort;
  • Quick recovery;
  • Good skin retraction.

High technology offers comfort and beauty to prosthetics

Silicone implants innovated enough. The use in the breast are manufactured in the form of a cohesive gel, high density and do not leak. In addition to more secure, they provide a good aesthetic, as they leave the breasts with a natural and youthful consistency. Current prostheses offer no risk of rejection. The only drawback that can occur is the capsular contracture which is the hardening of the silicone and hence the breast, which may have asymmetry and get sore.

However, this problem is recurring bit: around 2% among patients who undergo the procedure. The breast receiving a silicone implant does not lose its sensitivity and, in general, breastfeeding function is also preserved.

Growing market of products and services added to surgery

The advances made by plastic surgery are not restricted to the procedure itself. Currently, the market offers a range of products and services that increase the safety of surgery, reduce the discomforts after surgery and help the patient to restore a period of time dwindling.

Ellastic sock

Indispensable in terms of prevention, it helps to prevent edema and vascular thrombosis of the lower limbs. The sock is placed on the patient still in the operating room, with the aid of a machine designed for this purpose. Another advantage of the stocking is stability and comfort provideds to the body.

Compressive mesh

Essential in recovery and patient comfort during the postoperative period, and contribute to a better result of plastic surgery, they help shape the body.

Digital thermal mattress

Through it, you can control the body temperature of the patient and prevent the sensations of cold and tremors caused by cold air from the operating room. It is also used postoperatively during the hospital stay to ensure greater patient comfort.
