A brief history of liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. This relatively simple procedure has a long history that went through multiple iterations and was assisted by technological innovations to reach a point where it is today.

Liposuction was first invented by two Italian gynaecologists, Dr. Georgio Fister and Dr. Arpad Fischer in the year 1976. Their technique of blunt closed liposuction was published in the year 1978. Here the suction cannulas were quite large and sharp, but they were able to offer satisfactory improvements to the patient’s aesthetics.

This innovation became extremely popular in Europe, however, it wasn’t until the 1980’s that liposuction became popular in the USA. However, technicians still used primitive technology that used large suction cannulas, thus limiting the results one could achieve.

This method was greatly improved when Dr. Jeffery Klein developed and studied the uses of tumescent local anaesthesia. He developed small, non-sharp cannulas which reduced blood loss and thus enabled for a much better fat removal.

This technique has been greatly improved since then and it undergoes constant technological improvements, thus ensuring betterment in liposuction.

Neck lifts are now less invasive

         Do you have rounded jaws? This might be because of the excessive fatty tissues in your jaw that contributes to the lacking definition between your neck and your jaw. This rounded shape can give you a chubby face, thus making you look older than you actually are.  The best way of getting rid of the excess tissues and regaining a well defined jaw is by a procedure called a neck lift.

          Neck lift procedures have gotten less invasive these days, thanks to the excellent advancement in medical technologies. Here, a small incision is made underneath the chin, and excess fat is removed via liposuction. Then two more incisions are made behind each ear, which is then used to tighten the platysma muscle, which helps to achieve a tight, firm appearance.

      This method is extremely safe and leaves virtually no scars. Smaller incisions mean shorter recovery time and less discomfort as well. With the incisions being made at dedicated locations, it reduces the risk of damaging facial nerves. Ultimately, it offers you natural looking results over longer periods of time.

         At Asian Hair and Skin Clinic, we offer exquisite neck lifts and other forms of facial correction procedures that makes your skin look younger and better. For more information about our services, do visit our website at www.asianhairnskinclinic.com

Top 5 Acne Triggers

Some of us have won the war, but some of us are still battling it out. In some cases acne breaks out without any warning, and you will be left wondering why such a curse has been put upon you. Here are five common acne triggers. Understanding them will allow you to take precautions in the right regard.

  1. Cosmetics: Using excessive cosmetics or not removing them properly from your skin can lead to clogged pores in your skin, which can lead to severe acne.
  2. Hormones: Hormones known as androgens are typically responsible for acne. These hormones regulate the oil glands in your skin. Over stimulating these glands can lead to dead skin getting stuck in the pores, thus resulting in acne.
  3. Food: Scientists have determined that certain types of food can make acne worse, if not directly cause them. Foods that have a high glycemic index are the culprits. Foods with excessive sugar, dairy based food and other junk food should be avoided in order to arrest acne.
  4. Stress: Stress increases the release of a substance called cortisol, which can aggravate your acne problem. Also, when people are under stress they tend to pick their pimples, which can lead to long term scarring as well.

Cosmetic surgery aftercare

Believe it or not, but the after care for your surgery begins much before you have your surgery. Remember, it is always easier to recover from surgery if you are a healthy patient. Since cosmetic surgery does not pertain to a particular illness, it pays to take good care of yourself prior to the surgery to ensure speedy recovery. Eating healthy, giving up smoking and alcohol, minimizing caffeine etc for a specific period just before and after the surgery can make a lot of difference in how your body heals itself.

It is also important to follow up on your post operative appointments with the same diligence as the pre operative appointments. This will allow the physician to monitor your healing process and make changes to your drugs/ diet if required, which will assist you in your healing process. This is recommended even if you are healing well.

Make sure to let your care giver know of your limitations and dietary preferences as directed by the physician. Even simple herbs and teas can hinder your healing process, when taken without the prior approval of your physician.

Regularly eating fresh fruits and vegetables, and doing away with processed foods, caffeine, and other junk foods is recommended as well. Following the guidelines as directed by your physician will not only ensure a speedy recovery, but will also ensure a healthy life as well.
