In this rapid age of innovation and transformation, technology is changing the face of almost every industry, including plastic surgery. Not only will we have more advanced procedures, but the treatments that are already being performed will become more precise, reducing operative times, costs, and patient downtime. There are many more resources available for preoperative planning, helping us create more personalized solutions for plastic surgery problems.
Computerized Plastic Surgery
CT scans and surgical simulation applications allow doctors to practice surgical procedures before they perform them. This means an hour of preoperative planning can reduce the time spent in the operating room by up to two hours. The less time a patient spends in surgery, the faster the healing process can begin, making the entire process safer and less costly.
Hard and soft biologic tissue products used in reconstruction are also undergoing phenomenal evolution. We are already engineering products that provide a base for tissue regeneration and replacement, but the improvements have helped eliminate additional surgeries needed for transfer tissue and reconstruction.
Lasers and Non-Invasive Procedures
There has been major improvement in the use of non-invasive procedures instead of large, open surgical approaches. Lasers are more targeted, allowing better results in fewer treatments than what could be accomplished even five years ago. Injectable products are also more advanced, creating longer, more natural results with minimal side effects.
