Dr. David Halpern of Tampa Bay Plastic Surgery Inc. is current with the hottest trends in plastic surgery. He discusses the hottest topics presented at the annual American Society of Plastic Surgeons meeting in Chicago.
Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/06/2015 -- The mainstays of plastic surgery have always been procedures like breast augmentation, breast lifts, nose jobs, eyelid surgery, liposuction, and anti-aging facelifts. These operations will continue to remain trendy, but new techniques and assistive technology will make them less invasive and more popular in the years to come.
Dr. David Halpern is a triple board-certified plastic surgeon with Tampa Bay Plastic Surgery Inc. After attending the latest American Society of Plastic Surgeons annual meeting, he concluded that the top plastic surgery procedures for 2015 will likely include:
- The LiLa Strawberry Laser – noninvasive body sculpting that uses directed radiofrequencies in a 20-minute procedure to reduce the size of fat cells and take several inches off one's waist circumference with little to no downtime.
- Xiaflex – injected medication that reduces the thick hand contracture bands that cause finger curling in people with Dupuytrens disease.
- Micro-graft harvest facelifts – a facelift that transplants liposuction-removed fat from the abdomen or thighs to replace lost volume in the cheeks or other areas of the face that naturally occur with aging.
"It was neat to see a lot of the technology I've been using for years presented as hot trends," explains Dr. David Halpern. "There are many new devices coming out that medi-spas and plastic surgeons are eager to use them. However, it's still important for patients to exercise due diligence in deciding where to have the procedures done. The devices make the procedures easier to perform, and they are deemed 'minimally invasive' procedures to begin with, but people can still suffer injury in the hands of an inexperienced practitioner." In his own practice, Dr. David Halpern has seen great results with no adverse side effects for these emerging procedures.
