Cosmetic Medicine

Curious About Cosmetic Medicine?

Cosmetic medicine, also referred to as aesthetic medicine, is something of a wide-reaching term for some specific medical practices. An inclusive term that covers any medical specialty that focuses on bettering the cosmetic appearance of the patient, the term traditionally covers the fields of plastic surgery, dermatology, and reconstructive surgery, but in the modern age has also encompassed a number of other unusual procedures that do not comfortably fit in any established area of medical practice, but have been approved by a country's government as safe and fulfilling the promises made by the procedures' makers. It is a quickly evolving field, like all fields of modern science, but some elements have become mainstays of the field.

The most important elements of Euphoria Cosmedic Clinic cosmetic medicine are the removal of unwanted elements of the patient's appearance. This includes skin laxity, liver spots, moles, unwanted hair, disfiguring scars, excessive cellulite, excessive fat and spider veins, along with a few other focuses that are intended to make the user look better. As a broad term, the field encompasses both medical surgical procedures and non-surgical medical procedures in equal amounts, as many scientists these days are working on alternatives to invasive surgery as readily as they are trying to develop innovations and surgical procedures. As always, the patient must decide which one is best for them.

By way of surgical work, aesthetic medicine has a few famous elements. There is the always popular liposuction, which removes unwanted build ups of fat in the human body. Face lifts are also quite popular, a procedure also known as a rhytidectomy, that removes excessive, unneeded skin from a face that is experiencing natural wrinkling. Another popular procedure is breast augmentation, usually via a prosthetic implant called, unsurprisingly enough, a breast implant. Of course, these famous vanity uses overlook the most necessary uses of the field, ranging from reconstructing the breasts of women who sustained damage during treatment for breast cancer to mending birth defects and long term remnants of serious accidents.

Other nonsurgical procedures do exist in the field. Radio frequency skin tightening uses radio waves to increase the heat and subdermal production of collagen in the body. When this procedure is applied, the fine lines and loose skin of wrinkling and other skin problems tend to fade away as new collagen mends the damage. A chemical peel is also focused on the skin; a chemical solution is applied to the face intended to purge dead skin cells and eventually peel it off. Some of these peels can be done without a medical license, though as users are as always advised to consult a professional first. Another popular nonsurgical procedure is nonsurgical liposuction. Much like surgical liposuction, this process is intended to reduce fat build ups that the patient does not want, but rather than surgery, these procedures use lasers, ultrasound, cold or radio-frequency to get the job done.

While these procedures are elective and seldom necessary for the patient's survival, they do have some benefits. Many studies have found that carefully considered cosmetic procedures can improve mental well-being and social interaction over a long term period.
