Technology Applications in Cosmetic Surgery

Technology Applications in Cosmetic Surgery
CoolSculpting is one example of ways that technological advances are improving plastic surgery.

Technology and West Palm Beach Cosmetic Surgery

Technology has led to advancements in fields and industries throughout the economy, but health care and related fields have arguably benefitted the most from the advances of the last 30 to 40 years.  Medical professionals can diagnose diseases and health conditions much better with today’s technology than medical professionals could a generation ago. The advances, of course, have also extended to the treatment of health conditions and diseases, as well as elective procedures, like cosmetic surgery. The work of Harvard scientists has led to a breakthrough in fat-loss, called CoolSculpting, a non-surgical procedure that eliminates fat cells in the body by freezing them to death without harming surrounding healthy tissue.

Technology Assists Breast Augmentation West Palm Beach and Other Procedures

In locations where physical beauty has a prominent role, like the Palm Beaches in South Florida, plastic surgeons like Dr. Greg DeLange of the Estetica Institute, a leading facility in Palm Beach Gardens, adopt technology to help patients visualize how they would look by undergoing different procedures. Surgeons can simulate a woman’s appearance after undergoing procedures like breast augmentation West Palm Beach surgery, which helps the patient determine the size of breast implants she would like.

In the operating room, Palm Beach cosmetic surgeons have used technology to monitor patients’ vital signs and aid in some surgeries, improving safety for patients, reducing complications and leading to better results for patients. Other applications of technology have included the use of laser treatments in non-surgical procedures, such as laser-assisted liposuction, the so-called “SmartLipo,” and laser resurfacing of facial skin. The future looks bright for non-invasive body-sculpting, including procedures that use ultrasound and other non-invasive methods to improve patients’ figures.
