Buried Penis Treatment (Supra-Pubic Fat Removal)

Men: Permanently Get Rid of Supra Pubic Fat

As a man gets older, or when he gains substantial weight, he may notice that his penis seems smaller – or has become “harder to find” during sex. Obviously, this can have a very negative effect on man’s self-esteem and sexual confidence.

During sexually intimacy “penis fat” – medically called “supra pubic fat” – can make a man feel unattractive and even sexually inadequate. Excessive fat that obscures a man’s penis can also interfere with his ability to perform sexually. Other problems caused by supra pubic fat can include: difficulty urinating; urinary tract infections (UTI); and problems achieving a firm erection.

Fat placement on the body is generally hereditary, and “penis fat” is no exception. And fat in the pubic area is even more frustrating because it is an area that generally does not respond to dieting or exercise. Unfortunately, many men with supra-pubic fat just “live with it” and don’t realize they can seek medical help for this debilitating condition.

The good news is that Birmingham, MI board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali offers revolutionary new treatments that can permanently reduce or remove suprapubic fat from around a “buried penis” – and restore sexual sensation, confidence and performance.

Causes of Men’s Supra Pubic Fat (“Buried Penis”)

A small number of males are born with an unusually small (“retractile”) penis. But, in most cases, a penis that appears “buried” is a condition that occurs later in life when a perfectly normal size penis has been engulfed in an enlarged ‘supra pubic’ pad of surrounding fat.

Unwanted bulges of fat in the genital area (medically called the ‘suprapubic region’) that are caused by substantial weight gain or obesity are the most common cause of “buried penis”.

But, in addition to excessive weight gain, a hidden penis can result from other medical conditions. Hidradenitis suppurativa is a very painful skin condition that results in abscesses and scarring that can obscure or “bury” a man’s penis. Certain infections, as well as the chronic skin condition called ‘lichen sclerosis’ can also “bury” a man’s penis. And, less commonly, a lymphatic system disorder called penoscrotal lymphedema can lead to fluid retention and tissue swelling that hides the shaft of the penis.

Surgical Treatment for Supra Pubic Fat (“Buried Penis”)

The traditional treatment for a buried penis involves surgery to remove excess fat and tissue and make the penis more prominent. Depending upon the amount and placement of the pubic fat, a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali can usually remove the unwanted fat with lipectomy surgery, or with targeted liposuction. These procedures flatten the suprapubic area, which results in the penis being more visible and accessible – even though the penis itself is not directly involved in the surgical procedure.

Like any surgery, both lipectomy or liposuction require anesthetic, small incisions, and a recovery period. Typically, lipectomy patients must take at least a week off of work and need approximately six weeks to fully recover. Liposuction patients only need a few days off work and are typically back to normal activities within a few weeks.

The biggest advantage to surgical removal of men’s suprapubic fat is that, once the swelling subsides, the results are both immediately visible and are permanent. The body cannot make new fat cells – so the removed fat cells can never come back in the treated area!

Non-Surgical Treatment for Supra Pubic Fat (“Buried Penis”)

Board certified Birmingham plastic surgeon Dr. Ali also offers non-surgical men’s supra pubic fat removal solutions.  A combination of non-surgical fat removal and radiofrequency skin tightening procedures can also effectively get rid of embarrassing supra pubic fat in some men! These revolutionary fat removal treatments are comfortable, affordable and permanently get rid of unwanted fat around the penis – but with the added advantage of no downtime.

Depending on the amount and placement of the fat around the pubic area, some men may be good candidates for CoolSculpting to remove suprapubic fat. CoolSculpting treatments freeze and permanently destroy unwanted fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from the body.  There are no incisions, no anesthetic needed, and zero downtime with CoolSculpting.

Morpheus8 is another advanced treatment for treating suprapubic fat without surgery. Morpheus8 combines the regenerative power of microneedling with radiofrequency thermal energy to tighten and remodel tissue. In addition to offering all of the rejuvenating benefits of microneedling, Morpheus8 is a “Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device” (SARD) that uses radiofrequency heat energy to melt and mold to flatten the pubic area.

These nonsurgical treatments enable Dr. Ali to contour unwanted fat away from around the penis – while simultaneously tightening any excess skin – with accuracy and precision. So, even though the penis itself is never touched during the procedure, the shaft becomes much more visible and accessible. The result is a much more virile and attractive appearance as well as improved sexual performance.

Benefits of Supra Pubic Fat Removal

Removing supra pubic fat around the penis offers substantial psychological, physical, and sexual benefits for men, including:

  • Visibility of the entire penis
  • A penis that appears larger
  • Improved erections
  • Reduced skin irritation
  • Fewer UTIs & urinary tract issues
  • Increased sexual sensation
  • Increased self-esteem & confidence

Celebrities Who Have Had Plastic Surgery

Celebrities Who Have Had Plastic Surgery

In the famous words of Dolly Parton, “If I see something sagging, bagging, or dragging I’ll get it nipped, tucked or sucked!” Almost everyone has something that they would like to change about their body – and at AMAE Plastic Surgery we help our Troy, Mi area patients make these dreams a reality.

While plastic surgery used to be a “big secret” among actors and a-listers, influencers and celebrities now openly admit to their delight with using surgical enhancement to get the face and body they have always wanted.

So, who are some of the most famous people to recently have had plastic surgery?

Real Housewives Who Have Had Plastic Surgery

While they might not be like the housewives on your street, the “Real Housewives” from Bravo TV are known for having cosmetic procedures done on the regular. From The Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan and Leah McSweeney have both been upfront about their procedures. Leah, on Instagram wrote, “I can’t wait to show off the new and improved girls” following her breast augmentation in December of 2020.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann from Real Housewives of Atlanta has been an open book on multiple procedures, from tummy tucks to lip injections, and more. And while some ant to go “all out” many celebrities just “want a tune up,” like Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes. The NeNe Leakes approach to a more subtle “surgical tweakment” is one we regularly see at AMAe Plastic Surgery in the Troy, MI area.

Other Reality Stars and Plastic Surgery

The Real Housewives aren’t the only reality stars who have had plastic surgery. Former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham has been open about getting lip fillers, breast augmentations, a nose job (rhinoplasty), and vaginal rejuvenation procedure.

From the Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise fame, Amanda Stanton has said after breast feeding her second child, that she finally opted for a breast augmentation after waiting years to have one.

Celebrity Breast Implant Surgery

Many times, plastic surgery comes from necessity. That was the case for Angelina Jolie, who possesses the BRCA1 gene, which increases the risk of developing breast cancer. Jolie had a preventative double mastectomy with reconstructive surgical breast implants to remove the risk.

Ariel Winter, star of the ABC comedy series Modern Family, underwent a breast reduction in 2015 from size 34F to a more proportionate and comfortable size 32D. Winter told Glamour Magazine, “I had a lot of back problems. I really couldn’t stand up straight for a long period of time.” Once her neck began hurting so badly that it was causing difficulty with her spine, she knew it was time to turn to plastic surgery to relieve her pain.

But other celebrities – like Aussie rapper, Iggy Azalea and The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco – are just looking to enhance their appearance. Azalea told Vogue magazine in April 2015 she had gotten breast implants after thinking about getting them “her entire life.” Kaley Cuoco told Cosmopolitan that getting breast implants was “the best decision I ever made.”

Celebrity Nose Job Plastic Surgery

For other stars, their nose takes center stage … of their face, and of their plastic surgery experience. Jennifer Aniston has said her rhinoplasty surgery was the “best thing I ever did”. And Disney Channel star Ashley Tisdale – known for her roles in High School Musical and the Suite Life of Zack & Cody – also had a nose job allegedly to fix a deviated septum in order to help her breath better.

Supermodel Tyra Banks preaches natural beauty, but, as she revealed in her memoir, Perfect is Boring she also elected to have rhinoplasty surgery. And after her nose job she became one of the most successful and highest paid supermodels in the industry!

Other notable celebrities who have had nose jobs include Beverly Hills 90210 star Tori Spelling, and fitness star Jillian Michaels who said, “I had my nose done when I was 16 years old, and I’ll be honest, it did change my life.” In an even bigger “glow up”, Hills star Heidi Montag, at 23 years old, had a head-to-toe makeover with 10 cosmetic procedures in one day including Botox, chin reductions, and a nose job!

Celebrity Plastic Surgery for Eyes

One of the first things most people notice about someone is their eyes. Hairspray actress Amanda Bynes was born with unusual webbing between her eyes. She decided to have this birth defect surgically removed. And, The Talk co-host Julie Chen, early in her career, wanted her eyes to look bigger. So, she opted for plastic surgery as a solution. In 2013 she said, “And after I had it done, the ball did roll for me,” referencing her “eye job” procedure.

Why More Men are Considering Plastic Surgery

Why More Men Are Getting Plastic Surgery

Originally, the vast majority of plastic surgery patients were women. But the number of men who are now undergoing cosmetic procedures is surging.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the total number of cosmetic surgical procedures performed among men prior to the pandemic was almost one and a half million annually. That figure now represents close to 10 percent of the total number of cosmetic surgical procedures. And while 10% may not sound like a lot, it is triple the number of men undergoing plastic surgery in 1997.

In a survey conducted by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS)in June of 2020, almost one third of the men questioned said that they were “extremely likely” to consider a cosmetic procedure in the future. Almost 50% of the men surveyed said they would consider a cosmetic surgery treatment to feel more confident. And 25% said that they would undergo plastic surgery because they wanted to “look younger” in order to remain competitive in the workplace.

What to Look for In a Men’s Plastic Surgeon

Obviously, men’s anatomy is very different than a woman’s. Additionally, male skin is thicker than female skin, and men have more oil glands, as well as a higher ration of muscle to fat. For this reason it is extremely important for a man who is considering plastic surgery to find a surgeon like Dr. Ali who is specifically trained and experienced in working with male anatomy.

The details and nuances of plastic surgery procedures can often differ dramatically between the sexes. For example, when performing rhinoplasty (nose job) surgery, a small “turned up” nose may meet certain ideals of feminine beauty. But a larger, stronger more “masculine” nose shape is necessary to look balanced and attractive on a man’s face.

A similar example of the divergence of treatments between men and women is Botox injections. Most men will require larger doses of Botox to get the same effect as a woman, since male muscles are generally much larger and stronger.

Dr. Ali has helped thousands of men in the Birmingham, Detroit, and Troy, MI areas look and feel like younger more attractive versions of themselves with plastic surgery procedures.

Most Popular Men’s Plastic Surgery Procedures

According to 2017 statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the most popular plastic surgery procedure for men is liposuction. This is then followed in popularity by eye-lift surgery, male breast reduction, tummy tucks, and face-lifts.

Non-surgical cosmetic treatments to which men gravitate are led by Botox – the world’s number one cosmetic procedure. Facial fillers are also growing in popularity among men – especially with the addition of new facial fillers – such as new Juvéderm Volux – that are tailored to a man’s needs. Volux, for example, is specifically formulated to add shape, volume and definition to the chin jawline – making very popular among our male patients. And, Kybella injections can banish a man’s double chin non-surgically, and without downtime.

Plastic Surgery Works When Nothing Else Does

Many men try to enhance their bodies – and reduce problem areas – by working out, and dieting or eating healthy. But in many cases, nothing works because fat placement on the body is often the result of genetics, aging and/or hormone decline.

But cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, a tummy tuck or male breast reduction, can permanently remove stubborn fat that nature has cruelly placed in unwanted areas. These men’s plastic surgery procedures can get rid of fat almost anywhere on the body – including hereditary or hormonal fat that does not respond to diet or exercise.

We have also helped hundreds of men lose unwanted fat and get the slim toned body they want with non-invasive CoolSculpting. This revolutionary, non-surgical procedure can reduce fat by up to 24% – with no exercise, no dieting, and no downtime.

Does Facial Plastic Surgery Really Make People More Attractive or Likeable?

Does Facial Plastic Surgery Make People More Attractive or Likeable?

A recent study and article published by Georgetown University Medical Center revealed that facial plastic surgery may be able to offer a lot more than simply making the patient appear younger. That study revealed that facial plastic surgery can also improve how other people perceive someone.

This groundbreaking study was the first study of its kind to examine how facial plastic surgery affects people’s perception of an individual. The study concluded that women who underwent a variety of facial plastic surgery procedures were perceived as having better social skills, and were deemed more likeable, attractive and feminine by those with whom they interacted. To a lesser extent, facial plastic surgery procedures also appeared to make the patient seem more trustworthy, as well.

Why Study Facial Plastic Surgery Effects

The study – published in Journal of American Medicine Facial Plastic Surgery – was not intended to be lighthearted or superficial. On the contrary, it was a thorough and scientific examination of the importance of facial appearance. At the heart of the study, the researches indicated that how a person’s appearance is judged is actually rooted in evolution – referencing studies suggesting that judging a person based on their physical appearance was once a matter of individual and species survival.

In other words, humans’ “animal instincts” tells tell them avoid people who are dangerous – and certain personality traits are associated with an individual’s neutral expressions, based on that observer’s past experiences.

So, the study set out to evaluate how personality perception varied after a patient underwent various types of facial plastic surgery, including: face lift, upper and lower eye lifts, brow lift, neck lift and/or chin implant.

Facial Plastic Surgery Study Results

The study involved “before and after” photographs of thirty Caucasian women – whose pictures were examined by 170 people. The study participants were asked to rate their perception of each woman’s attractiveness, femininity, and personality traits (extroversion, likeability, social skills, risk-seeking behavior, aggressiveness and trustworthiness). However, none of the reviewers were shown both the pre-surgery and post-surgery pictures of the same woman.  And, none of the study respondents knew whether plastic surgery had or had not been performed on the women.

The study showed a marked post-surgery improvement in how the women were perceived in four traits: social skills, likeability, attractiveness and femininity.  Patients who had a facelift and lower eye lift experienced the most favorable improvements in perception after surgery.

This supports the results of earlier psychological studies that have shown that appearance of the eyes are highly predictive of how attractive and how trustworthy a person is perceived to be. So it comes as no surprise that patients who had a lower eyelift were considered significantly more attractive and feminine, as well as having an increased trustworthiness score.

The study also looked at whether there were any identifiable less favorable responses, post plastic surgery. While there was not a statistically significant negative response found across the board, a small minority of patients were assessed as appearing more aggressive or a greater “risk-taker” after surgery. Obviously, these traits can be perceived as both good or bad depending upon the context.

Since this study was both small, and included only white female participants, its application to other genders and races can’t be determined. But, the results are important in that they support previous research indicating that facial plastic surgery has many benefits. Facial plastic surgery appears to not only increase the patient’s satisfaction with their looks, but also improve how they are perceived by members of society at large.

While beauty does “come from within” it would be dishonest to suggest that people are not judged by their appearance. Especially the appearance of the eyes and face. Oakland County board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali firmly believes that facial plastic surgery should always be done to make YOU happier and more satisfied with your appearance – and not for the sake of others – to engender self-confidence and self-love. 

But in the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon facial plastic surgery can have the added benefits of improving how you are perceived by society at larger, as well! If you would like to explore the possibility of facial plastic surgery, schedule a consultation at AMAE Plastic Surgery in Oakland County today.

Why Younger People Are Getting Plastic Surgery

Why Younger People Are Getting Plastic Surgery – 

According to a recent clinical study, the past two years have seen the average age of those seeking facial plastic surgery dropped from 39 to 37 among female patients, and from 45 to 43 among male plastic surgery patients. Additionally, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that in 2016, people between the ages of 13 and 19 underwent a total of 66,347 plastic surgery procedures. This number marks an increase in this demographic of an impressive 3%.

In this article, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali explains why more and more younger patients area are visiting AMAE Plastic Surgery in the Troy, MI area to reach their personal aesthetic goals.

Social Media & Plastic Surgery

Like many other recent trends in the field of aesthetic procedures, the increasing number of younger plastic surgery patients is believed to be largely caused by social media. Social media allows for laser-like focus on both one’s own perceived shortcomings, as well as the allegedly “perfect” attributes of others.  This has resulted in many millennials to turning to plastic surgery as a means of “correcting” what they have been made to feel are flaws in their appearance.

Looking good on social networking sites like Instagram and Snapchat have proven to be major motivators for young people to get plastic surgery. Rhinoplasty plastic surgery, for example, has seen an increased number of younger patients thanks to the increased awareness that taking selfies brings to one’s nose. When observing oneself from an angle other that head-on (such as when looking in a mirror), one can become more aware of how they appear in photographs, which remains a key reason why more young people than ever are turning to plastic surgery.

Job Market & Plastic Surgery

While being judged on one’s looks is an unfortunate part of life with which most women are all too familiar, in the modern era, more and more men are finding themselves subject to that same unfair standard of attractiveness. With men and women alike facing greater pressure than ever to conform to standards of attractiveness, it is no wonder that more and more young people have begun to turn to plastic surgery for answers.

In an article published by The Smithsonian, it was reported that men considered “handsome” earn an average of 13% during their career than an allegedly less-attractive man with the same position. The article went on to report that one’s perceived attractiveness plays a role in whether or not they will be hired for a job, with people said to be more attractive simply having better luck on the job market. For this reason, many younger men have felt as though enhancing their appearance through plastic surgery is a shrewd investment for their career.

Plastic Surgery is More Attainable

There has never been a safer time to be a plastic surgery patient, with incredible advancements in minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery making cosmetic procedures easier to perform than ever. Modern plastic surgery patients are also able to enjoy shorter periods of recovery, as well as plastic surgery procedures that are infinitely less painful than they were as recently as a decade ago. Many plastic surgery procedures are now even performed on an outpatient basis, making the long hospital stays that used to accompany the procedures seem like ancient history. Many plastic surgery patients are able to return home and resume their normal daily routine as soon as their procedure is over.

Additionally, plastic surgery costs have come down thanks to shorter hospital stays, as well as the need for less invasive surgery, and the use of local rather than general anesthetics in some procedures. And a variety of financing options are also available. With plastic surgery being safer, less expensive and having minimal downtime, it is now more accessible to a younger market.

How Young is Too Young for Plastic Surgery?

While it is impossible to pick one single age at which everyone is finally “old enough” for plastic surgery, the conventional wisdom on the matter is that plastic surgery should not be performed until a person’s face and body are no longer growing and developing. Young people considering plastic surgery should keep in mind that, generally, this occurs around the age of 16 for girls and 18 for boys.

Troy, MI area board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali advises parents to refrain from signing off on their child undergoing plastic surgery until they are confident their child is emotionally ready, and fully understands the seriousness and complexity plastic surgery entails. There are no laws in the United States that prevent teenagers from undergoing plastic surgery. However, teens under the age of 18 may not undergo plastic surgery without consent from their parents.

That said, in some cases after careful examination a qualified plastic surgeon may come to the conclusion with a teen and his or her parents that plastic surgery is not only safe, but also beneficial. For example, there may be strong psychological benefits to performing rhinoplasty or gynecomastia (male breast) reduction on a teen who is being teased or bullied about their appearance.

Plastic Surgery – Troy, MI Area

While beauty does “come from within” people should feel free to do what they want to their own bodies, to engender self-confidence and self-love. And, in the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon -provided one is sufficiently educated on the procedure they have selected- plastic surgery can be an excellent way to improve self-acceptance and self-confidence.

Dr. Ali takes his patients physical and emotional wellbeing very seriously, no matter what their age. He will help each and every patient decide if plastic surgery is the right step for them. If you live in the greater Detroit or Troy, Mi area, schedule a consultation at AMAE Plastic surgery to see if plastic surgery is right for you.

Why NOT to Go Abroad for Cheap Plastic Surgery

Why You Shouldn’t Go Out of the Country for Cheap Plastic Surgery

In search of plastic surgery that might be less costly than the going rate in the United States some patients travel out of the country. Sometimes called “medical tourism” this is a dangerous practice that can lead to serious illness, deformity or even death – all the result of trying to save a few hundred dollars.

Report on the Dangers of Plastic Surgery Abroad

In April 2018, the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery published a report on 78 patients (the majority of whom were women), who underwent cheap plastic surgery outside of the United States.

Roughly 45% received tummy tucks, a third underwent breast augmentation, with various other plastic surgeries including breast lift and reduction, liposuction, and injections of foreign substances such as silicon. About a quarter of the patients underwent more than one plastic surgery procedure.

After their respective plastic surgeries, almost 10% of the patients required subsequent plastic surgery in the United States to undo the damage done abroad. And, roughly 18 percent of patients suffered from serious infections, with an additional 18 percent suffering from persistent pain. 8 percent of patients were left with scarring, and 15 percent suffered from wounds that would not heal. 5 percent of patients also suffered from internal scar tissue in their breast, and others suffered from serious complications like ruptured implants, hernias, and perforated bowls.

Eight of the plastic surgery patients required procedures performed in the emergency room. Among them, a 59 year old patient experienced kidney failure and developed multiple hernias as the result of cheap liposuction of the abdomen performed in the Dominican Republic.

Where People Go Abroad for Plastic Surgery

According the report, one of the most popular destinations for cheap plastic surgery is the Dominican Republic. Other countries guilty of frequently providing “medical tourists” with cheap, faulty plastic surgery are Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Turkey, China, Syria, Venezuela, Argentina, and El Salvador.

While it is true that the initial cost of plastic surgery is often less than it is in the United States, the risks outweigh the potential discount by a vast margin. Undergoing cheap plastic surgery in developing countries has been proven to result in complications such as infections that resist antibiotics and enormous open sores that can leave patients severely deformed.

Among the reasons for such complications from cheap plastic surgery abroad are under-regulated medical facilities and subpar care delivered by individuals without the proper qualifications for the job, unlike expert and board-certified Troy, MI plastic surgeon Dr. Ali, who values the health and safety of his patients about all else.

CDC Warns Against Plastic Surgery Out of the Country

The many cases of botched plastic surgery performed in the Dominican Republic prompted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. State Department to issue alerts attempting to dissuade Americans from seeking out care in that country.

Nonetheless, the American College of Surgeons and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) have both yet to produce any form of guidelines towards solving the problem of plastic surgery tourism.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, prospective plastic surgery patients should always both carefully vet their plastic surgeon, and the facility in which it is performed. Fortunately for Troy, MI patients, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali and AMAE Plastic Surgery both exceed the qualifications necessary for a safe plastic surgery procedure that is free from unnecessary complications and performed in a sterile, comfortable environment.

Members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons like Dr. Ali must undergo a rigorous training program by the Board of Plastic Surgeons before they are able to receive certification. This is put in place to ensure plastic surgery patients are operated on by well-trained surgeons who implement safe practices.

Leaving the U.S. for plastic surgery means the patient with have no means of vetting their doctor’s qualifications. This does not mean that all non-U.S. based plastic surgeons are unqualified -as there are also countless expert plastic surgeons located all over the world. But it does mean that, for patients traveling to underdeveloped countries for plastic surgery, there is no means whatsoever of checking and qualifying who will be performing their procedure.

Traveling to developing countries to receive cut-rate prices on plastic surgery is a health risk that is simply not worth the alleged benefits. And for anyone still tempted by the tantalizing prices offered by practices in such countries, the risk is not only physical, but also financial. Patients who experience complications from botched plastic surgery may not be covered by their insurance should they recover corrective and/or emergency care while still abroad. Paying out of pocket for such care could result in the patient paying even more than they would have if they simply sought out the care of a board-certified plastic surgeon in the U.S., such as Troy, MI area board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali.

Board Certified Plastic Surgery – Troy, MI

At AMAE Plastic Surgery, we are sympathetic to the financial concerns of our patients and understand that the decision to get plastic surgery comes along with some serious monetary concerns. We also understand that the discount of “medical tourism” may seem too good to pass up, but that’s because they are also too good to be true. For that reason, we are happy to offer payment options to our plastic surgery patients.

After all, one’s personal health and safety is infinitely more important than saving a couple hundred dollars. We strongly encourage anyone in the Troy, MI area considering going out of the country for cheap plastic surgery to instead schedule a consultation with AMAE Plastic Surgery, where the safety of our patients is our top priority.

Three Top Plastic Surgery Trends for 2019

Three Top Plastic Surgery Trends for 2019

Plastic surgery procedures are on the rise in 2019. Nose jobs, eye lifts and the use of PRP (plasma rich platelets) are three of the fastest growing cosmetic procedure trends – as patients seek a more youthful appearance.

In this article Macomb County board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali discusses these top 3 trends in plastic surgery.

Plastic Surgery Trend #1: PRP injections

PRP Injections have gained rapid popular due to their ability to regenerate and rejuvenate the face, body and hair – with a minimally invasive, all natural procedure. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is extracted from the patient’s own blood, then spun down to concentrate platelets containing key growth factors. This PRP is then injected into target areas to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, to restore hair growth, or to eliminate scars or discolorations.

PRP treatments have been performed for some time but are increasing in popularity thanks to so-called “vampire facials” featured by celebrities across social media channels – which has created even greater demand for the procedure.

Plastic Surgery Trend #2: Surgical & Non-surgical Nose Jobs

Rhinoplasty in the U.S. is the third-most requested plastic surgery procedure, and it’s rapidly gaining in popularity. With today’s modern reshaping techniques, nose job patients can enjoy more natural-looking results, with less invasive procedures and little to no downtime.

Some experts have postulated the rise in people’s desire for a better nose stems from “selfies” and social media. Close up photos like selfies can accentuate or exaggerate the size or asymmetry of a person’s nose – leading patients to seek cosmetic procedures to achieve the perfect nose.

While a nose job can dramatically improve a person’s overall facial appearance, experienced plastic surgeons like Dr. Ali understand that one type of nose doesn’t fit everyone. Seeking out an experienced board certified plastic surgeon like Macomb County Dr, Ali ensures that each patient retains their individuality, ethnic features and unique appearance after rhinoplasty – to look as natural as possible.

In addition to surgical nose jobs, non-surgical rhinoplasty – using a hyaluronic acid filler – can also change the shape of the nose. When skillfully injected, fillers can improve the contour of the nose, obscure imperfections, create symmetry, and/or smooth out bumps, without plastic surgery. Results last for up to two years, depending on the type of filler used, and are easily touched up by skilled Macomb County plastic surgeon Dr. Ali.

Plastic Surgery Trend #3: Eyelid Procedures

Maintaining a youthful and confident professional appearance is a major motivator when it comes to having plastic surgery. And among the top procedures currently being sought out by professionals is eyelid surgery. Technically called “blepharoplasty”, eyelid lifts help people look more youthful as well as less tired or “worn out”.

Blepharoplasty plastic surgery reduces the top eyelid tissue from bulging, wrinkling, drooping or sagging. It can also remove excess fat under the eyes that causes bags to appear. Most patients only require one or the other procedure, however some patients elect both to maximize results.

While plastic surgery procedures like lower blepharoplasty has long-term results, non-surgical fillers can also be used to conceal under eye bags. The areas below the eye’s fat pockets are injected with a hyaluronic acid filler, which hides the protruding fat and reduces under eye circles for about 12 months – all without plastic surgery.

Additionally, recent innovations in plastic surgery don’t simply remove fat from around the eyes but also preserve the fat to be redistributed to areas where it it is needed to fill areas having an aged, hollow appearance. Theses newest advancements in cosmetic surgery uses fat in place of fillers that are added around the eyes to create volume, which can be done to enhance a surgical procedure, or be done separately.

Plastic Surgery Improves Patient Self-Esteem

The workplace, the dating arena, and even social media can be a highly competitive and often highly critical environment where people feel the need to look their best. A tired or wrinkled appearance can be perceived as old, less “on-game” and even outdated or out-of-touch. If a person’s self-esteem is affected because they aren’t confident about their facial features, these “top 3” plastic surgery procedures – and many others – can restore confidence and satisfaction with one’s appearance.
