For most patients, the reasons for having a facelift are simple: to “turn back the clock” for a younger and more attractive appearance. Even during the pandemic year 2020, more than 234,000 patients underwent facelift surgery, according to American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) statistics.
As patients continue to seek non-invasive treatments across the cosmetic spectrum, “liquid rhinoplasty” is emerging as the non-surgical alternative to the traditional nose job. Using dermal fillers to change the appearance of the nose, non-surgical rhinoplasty is gaining in popularity due to its relatively low cost, convenience, and short recovery time.
For women receiving breast implants during reconstructive or cosmetic breast surgery, scarring around the implant – called capsular contracture – is a common, costly, and painful complication.
