    How is plastic surgery different from aesthetic medicine?

    Unlike plastic surgery, aesthetic medicine improves the image of the patient through certain treatments that do not involve surgery.

    On the other hand, plastic surgery can be differentiated between reconstructive surgery and aesthetic plastic surgery.

    • Reconstructive surgery is extremely effective in patients who want to correct functional defects of their body or to repair the damages caused by a disease (for instance cancer), accident or injury. This is known as reconstructive or restorative surgery.
    • Aesthetic plastic surgery is performed on patients who want to improve their face and body image to look better

    Rise of the demand for plastic surgery and aesthetic in men

    Although 70% of patients are still women, there is an increasing demand from men.

    While women demand bust improvements, men request interventions and treatments to improve the face area (upper and lower eyelids, rhinoplasty, correction of ears). They also request body liposculptures.

    Breast surgery to increase or reduce its size

    Women who request breast surgery look for a beautiful and natural decolletage. Some of the most frequent reasons for getting this type of intervention are: having the breasts too small or too large, which causes, in the second case, health problems.

    It is common for patients with uneven or empty breasts after breastfeeding, wanting to look good again.

    Video: Eliminate localized fat, one of the most demanded treatments

    One of the most requested treatments in medical-aesthetic centres are those that eliminate localized fat without surgery. The treatments, like the CoolSculpting, allow to eliminate the fat that neither the diets nor the exercise have been able to remove. This is achieved without surgery, without needles and without home rest.

    To realize this, a non-invasive technique is used based on cooling the fat cells to destroy them without affecting the surrounding tissues.
