Benefits of Non-surgical Plastic Surgery
Do you look in the mirror and feel frustrated by your reflection? If so, you certainly aren’t alone. While we may be less than satisfied with our body, our face tends to be our biggest betrayer of age. Fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation, as well as loose, sagging skin all point to our advancing years even when we still feel 21 on the inside.
Surgical facelifts are a common plastic surgery procedure that can tighten the skin on your face, eliminating lines and wrinkles and tightening up saggy jowls and heavy brows. However, the process of a surgical facelift is a complex and highly invasive one, requiring lengthy appointments, moderate to severe pain relief and at least several weeks of recovery time.
Fortunately, there is another way: non-surgical plastic surgery. Non-surgical plastic surgery refers to a range of cosmetic procedures that are designed to improve and address specific flaws without needing to go under the knife. In doing so, patients can enjoy all of the benefits of an improved appearance, without the disadvantages of complex, invasive surgery.
Types of non-surgical plastic surgery
There are a wide range of non-surgical facelift treatments that can address the signs of aging. Some common non-surgical plastic surgery treatments include:
- Dermal fillers
- Fat Transfer
- Chemical Peels
- Lip enhancements
Which is right for you will depend on which specific features of your face that you wish to alter. For example, dermal fillers add volume to hollowed out areas of the face, plumping them out and causing the skin to appear tighter and more youthful. Meanwhile, Botox injections prevent muscles from contracting, preventing them from forming lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of choosing non-surgical plastic surgery treatments
There are a wide range of benefits to choosing non-surgical plastic surgery treatments.
The procedure time for non-surgical cosmetic treatments is usually much shorter than invasive alternatives, with an average length of just 30 minutes. This makes it possible to get the transformation you are looking for during a standard lunch break.
No significant pain
The non or minimally-invasive nature of non-surgical plastic surgery procedures mean that the patient should experience no significant pain during or after their procedure. Most procedures are performed using either numbing cream or a small injection of lidocaine, which will ensure that you remain comfortable throughout the treatment.
Although the evolution of the tools and techniques used in cosmetic surgery mean that it is incredibly safe, and the risks associated with the procedures are low, there is still a greater chance of complications when you choose to go under the knife. Any post-procedure side effects from non-surgical cosmetic treatments are usually mild, such as slight swelling or bruising.
Virtually no downtime
Another popular benefit of non-surgical plastic surgery treatments is the fast recovery time. In the majority of cases, patients can go back to work immediately. If you have opted for a slightly more complex treatment, you may require between 24 and 72 hours of rest before resuming your usual activities. However, this is still considerably faster than conventional surgery where the recovery process takes weeks or even months.
Because non-surgical plastic surgery treatments are less complex, they are also much less expensive than more invasive alternatives. This means that aesthetic improvements are more affordable and within the budget of a greater number of patients than ever before.
