As effective as modern plastic surgery may seem when it comes to facial rejuvenation, our options are limited to Facelift, Neck Lift, Forehead Lift, Brow Lift, Blepharoplasty, Crow’s-Feet, Skin Resurfacing, Fillers and Facial Fat Transfer. Ultimately, we are treating symptoms, not causes of aging.
When it comes to body rejuvenation, our options are even more limited. Have you seen people with a young-looking face, with an aged and shriveled neck or chest? Very rarely, neck resurfacing can be performed. And there are even fewer known cases of chest skin resurfacing. Have your heard of a chest lift? When it comes to a younger-looking body, Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, Gynecomstia Surgery, Breast Lift or Reduction, Breast, Buttock, Pectoral, and Muscle Augmentation are our choices. These procedures may help alleviate some aspects of aging appearance, however, not all and not forever.
The future of Face and Body Rejuvenation lies in treating the causes, not the effects of aging. At present, these solutions dwell in the realm of Science Fiction and flight of fancy. Turning back the clock of aging is not an easy task.
However, the future may not be as far away as it may appear at first glance. Consider, what may happen when the science of Genetics ascertains the causes of aging. Can we slow down or stop the clock? (Of course, there are also spiritual ramifications). With further development and miniaturization of computers, can we create computers the size of human cells, which can be programmed to repair and rejuvenate our appearance on a cellular level? Can we remove scars completely? Only time will tell.
There are some present advances worthy of note. There is technology enabling collagen rejuvenation and repair. There is glue recently developed, which will allow healing without stitches. Imagine a face lift without scars! There are some substances that allow near-complete skin restoration of even severe burns. Perhaps, within the next twenty years, plastic surgery will begin treating the causes of aging. Whatever the future, it will undoubtedly yield tremendous advances in Facial and Body Rejuvenation. Before long, we plan to describe some of these advances on this website. Visit us again!
