Honesty Is the Best Policy

Honesty Is the Best Policy

If you're thinking of undergoing a cosmetic procedure, you have probably already thought about what procedure you want, who is going to do it and how you hope to look afterward. But, there are several other considerations you must make so you can be sure you are both physically and mentally healthy for your procedure. Find out how to get ready with these tips from Innovations Medical.

Be Honest About Allergies. There is no benefit in holding back information about your health history, and this includes being upfront about your allergies. Let your physician know if you have had an adverse reaction to acrylates, silicones, rubber and latex. These ingredients may be found in dressings, adhesives and other components used in your procedure.

Keep Your BMI in Check. Some cosmetic procedures require you to be a healthy weight and BMI (body mass index). A good target BMI is 30 or less. Why is a lower BMI and healthy weight important? Being overweight can interfere with anesthesia and may cause complications for recovery. Note: Do not start a crash diet to get to your ideal weight before a cosmetic procedure. Instead, work to lose weight at a healthy pace and stabilize your weight loss at least six months before your procedure.

Cryolipo What?

Cryolipo What?

It seems like there is always some "new" thing hitting the market of cosmetic treatments - a new injectable here, a new surgery there and an endless supply of new lotions or potions making promises to erase the signs of aging overnight. While some of these procedures, treatments and products do what they claim, some leave patients with other, unintended effects, too.

One of those procedures is "fat freezing," also known as cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that causes fat cells to die by freezing them through your skin. Sounds great, right? Well, before you schedule that appointment, we just want to mention a few things. First, although the fat cells are destroyed, the fat itself moves to a different part of your body. Also, recent studies suggest that there could be a risk associated with the treatment - a complication known as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) in which areas of hardened localized fat develop. Although the condition is treatable, it can be frustrating and leave individuals with unsightly or uneven final results.

What Is the Alternative?

Fight Aging Overnight

Fight Aging Overnight
If we've said it once, we've said it a thousand times: Getting enough sleep is the key to great skin. Well, maybe we haven't mentioned it a thousand times, but we're saying it now. Not getting a full night's sleep can wreak serious havoc on your skin and leave you at risk of wrinkles. Find out how you can fight the aging process, even in your sleep, with these tips from Innovations Medical.

How Can Sleeping Cause Wrinkles?
Sleeping, per se, does not cause wrinkles. Instead, it is how you sleep that leaves you at risk of lines and creases. When you sleep on your side or stomach, there is a force applied to your face. This force is also applied to the collagen in your skin and will eventually cause the breakdown of this important protein. When collagen breaks down, you're at risk of developing wrinkles, lines and sagging skin.

Study: Video Sites May Not Be the Best Place to Get Information About Cosmetic Procedures

Study: Video Sites May Not Be the Best Place to Get Information About Cosmetic Procedures

Results of a new study from Rutgers University reveal that individuals doling out cosmetic surgery information on YouTube are frequently not qualified to advise on procedures.

These 240 videos had a combined 160 million views.

Filtered Photos Causing Surge in Surgery

Filtered Photos Causing Surge in Surgery

More and more people are heading to cosmetic surgeons with their filtered selfies asking for procedures to make them look more like their edited image, according to a recently published article in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The article, written by researchers at the Boston Medical Center, outlines how photo filters for cell phone social media apps have created a negative trend they have labeled "Snapchat dysmorphia." The researchers also claim that the condition is negatively impacting many individuals' self-esteem.

Snapchat has built-in filters designed to modify users' images. These filters can make the user look different by changing skin texture and tone, elongating eyelashes, changing eye shape and even making the bone structure of the face appear more angular.

Don't Let 'Moobs' Stand in the Way of Summer Fun

Don't Let 'Moobs' Stand in the Way of Summer Fun

Summer has definitely hit in Dallas. Time to crank up the air conditioning and jump in the pool. But do you hesitate taking off your shirt and diving into summer fun because you have "moobs," also known as man boobs? If you’re sweating and struggling with enlarged male breast tissue, suffer no longer. Dr. Bill Johnson treats men with enlarged breast tissue at Innovations.

What Causes Moobs?
Moobs, medically known as gynecomastia, are caused by a number of conditions, the most common of which is weight gain. Some men are able to diet and exercise to eliminate moobs that develop as a result of weight gain, but others are stuck with enlarged tissue because fat in this area can be stubborn and refuse to tone. Gynecomastia affects 40 percent of men in America.

Cosmetic Surgery Cost Savings Luring People to Unlicensed Providers

Last month, headlines around the country announced the death of Delma Pineda, a California woman who had traveled to Miami for cosmetic surgery. Pineda,44, is the eighth person to die because of a cosmetic procedure performed by an unqualified or unlicensed provider in the city since May 2016.

By the end of the next day, she was dead.
