Medical aesthetics

Medical aesthetics is a broad term for specialties that focus on changing cosmetic appearance through the treatment of conditions such as scars, skin laxity, wrinkles, moles, liver spots, excess fat, cellulite, unwanted hair, skin discoloration and spider veins.

Any medication or medical procedure aimed at or specialized in improving cosmetic appearance is covered by the term “medical aesthetics”. There is a wide range of treatments and therapies offered by a medical aesthetician, including procedures to reduce, reverse or otherwise minimize the signs of aging.

What are the types of medical aesthetics?

The use of non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures and methods to meet the needs of clients is becoming increasingly popular. Facelifts and Botox injections are the most well-known types of medical aesthetic treatments. While facelifts are primarily preferred to remove age-related skin wrinkles, Botox injections are used to provide a fuller and more dynamic appearance in the cheek and lip areas. With treatments that mostly involve subcutaneous injections, it is possible to deal with a number of aesthetic complaints at the same time.

Some other medical aesthetic treatments include:

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Under eye treatment
  • Mesotherapy
  • Stretch mark and blemish treatment
  • Professional skin care
  • Cellulite treatment
  • Laser hair epilation
  • Dermal fillers
  • Filler applications such as lip fillers

Botox applications

Botox is one of the safest and easiest ways to remove wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Unlike most aesthetic operations, no incision is made during Botox application. Daily routines can be continued immediately after the injection. Botox can be used for therapeutic purposes as well as aesthetic applications. It is especially used in the treatment of muscle-related disorders; Botox application can also be seen in disorders such as underarm hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraine headaches, teeth grinding, spasticity, overactive bladder, involuntary eye movements or cervical dystonia.

Botox was first used in the treatment of lazy eye, blepharospasm (inability to move the eyelids properly) and cervical dystonia. In 2002, it started to be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles between the eyebrows caused by frowning. In 2004 it was approved for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis and then in 2010 for the treatment of migraine.

Filling applications

Stress and living conditions can affect human skin. There are various treatment methods to get rid of these negative effects. Filling applications can be preferred not only for wrinkle problems, but also to have fuller lips or more attractive facial features. Filler application is an effective treatment method that includes a reliable medical application and it is also an application with fast effects and successful results. It is among the most preferred applications in aesthetics. As a result of treatments with the support of hyaluronic acid-based fillers, effects such as fine lines, wrinkles and lip augmentation can be achieved.

Since we are exposed to sunlight for a certain period of time every day, these effects combined with aging can cause various skin problems. Fine lines and deep wrinkles are removed by filling with hyaluronic acid-based filler injection. It is also possible to give a different shape to the face with the use of this substance. Another reason why filler applications are so reliable is that they are not permanent. The filler decays between 4 and 6 months.

The hyaluronic acid used in the treatment is the most widely used filling material in the world. The most important feature is that our body has a certain amount of this acid. Injecting a metabolism compatible substance also prevents possible allergic reactions. In case of dissatisfaction after the application, the substance can be expected to dissolve or a substance that accelerates the dissolution of the substance can be injected. A substance called Hyalin is used in melting procedures.

Cellulite applications

Cellulite are fat deposits on the surface of the skin, surrounded by fibrous connective tissue with a puckered and dimpled structure. It is most common on the upper legs, thighs and buttocks.

Beneath the surface of the skin are layers of fat that store energy. Strong collagen fibers and septa (membranes) connect them to the skin. Over time, the fibers and partitions stretch or break down and fat cells grow. The compartments that hold the fat cells become crowded and the fibers pull the skin downwards. This is what creates the rough surface of cellulite.

In addition to lifestyle changes to get rid of cellulite, there are some medical options. Many products and treatments for cellulite are being touted. Some work well for some people, others are not as effective. A few of these treatments include cold lipolysis treatments, acoustic wave therapy, laser and radiofrequency treatments.

Peeling treatments

Peeling is a beauty treatment in which dead skin cells are removed from the skin in order to provide renewed skin with space for growth. After peeling, the skin looks healthier and fresher.

A peeling treatment, also known as a chemofacial or derma peel, uses a chemical solution to improve the appearance of your skin. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to your skin that causes trauma or injury to the layers of your skin. The layers of skin eventually peel off, revealing younger skin. The new skin is usually smoother with fewer lines and wrinkles, has a more even color and a brighter complexion.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a method that uses injections based on vitamins, enzymes, hormones and plant extracts to rejuvenate and tighten the skin, as well as to remove excess fat.

Today, mesotherapy is used for the following purposes:

  • Removing fat from areas such as abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, legs, arms and face
  • Reducing cellulite
  • Fading wrinkles and lines
  • Tightening loose skin
  • Reshaping the body
  • Lighten pigmented skin
  • Solving hair loss (alopecia)

The mesotherapy method uses very fine needles to make a series of injections into the middle layer of the skin (mesoderm). The main goal of mesotherapy is to correct underlying problems such as poor circulation and inflammation that cause skin damage.

Skin rejuvenation treatments

Aging, genetics, sun exposure and acne can cause changes in the texture and appearance of your skin. Skin rejuvenation is a broad term that includes revitalization methods to help your skin look healthier, firmer, smoother and younger.

Skin rejuvenation products and procedures reduce the appearance of mild to moderate skin problems. Many skin rejuvenation treatments also stimulate new collagen growth to tighten and firm the skin.

Some of the methods used for skin rejuvenation treatments are: laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion and peels are some of the methods applied for skin rejuvenation purposes.

What you need to know about medical aesthetic treatments

The field of medical aesthetics includes all medical procedures that focus on improving the cosmetic appearance of patients. Medical aesthetics occupies a small niche between the beauty industry and plastic surgery. Qualified doctors, nurses or dentists can perform many small procedures to improve a person’s appearance.

These small procedures require a high degree of skill, training and knowledge of anatomy and physiology. This is what distinguishes medical aesthetic treatments from typical beauty treatments such as eyebrow plucking, waxing or eyelash extensions. In contrast, medical aesthetic treatments are not as aggressive as surgical interventions involving procedures such as facelifts, breast augmentation or liposuction.

Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery

Plastic surgery aims to correct parts of the body that are abnormal according to standard anatomy. Considering that it can be applied to organs and tissues in any body structure, plastic surgery is a highly multidisciplinary specialty. This does not only mean that plastic surgeons work with many different specialists from other surgical fields, plastic surgery is a multidisciplinary field that includes many subspecialties such as breast surgery, hand surgery, lower extremity surgery, burn surgery, reconstructive surgery and aesthetic surgery.

Some of the most common plastic surgery procedures include operations aimed at combating signs of aging, removing tumors, removing scars and correcting malformations.

Of the aforementioned plastic surgery subspecialties, reconstructive surgery aims to improve and restore the functions of the patient’s body parts. Breast reconstruction is a classic example of a reconstructive surgery procedure. In recent years, this operation has become an integral part of breast cancer treatment. Even if a complete mastectomy has to be performed, there are surgical solutions that can help prevent problems that women may have from this experience, as the reconstruction procedure allows to restore the volume and shape of the breast.

In reconstructive surgery, improving the aesthetic appearance of the body parts the surgeon operates on is important but a secondary goal. In contrast, in plastic surgery, improving the appearance and attractiveness of the face and body is the priority. The job of a plastic surgeon is to correct aesthetic defects of different sizes that may affect the patient’s self-confidence or psychophysical well-being. Some of the most common defects that plastic surgeons operate on are unwanted signs of aging. Therefore, facelifts, breast augmentation or reduction, liposuction, rhinoplasty (improving the aesthetic appearance of the nose) or otoplasty (correction of ears with protrusions or other defects) are examples of the most common procedures. The main goal is to achieve or restore an aesthetically pleasing and as natural as possible harmony of form.

What are plastic surgery techniques?

Here are some of the techniques used during plastic surgery:

Skin grafts – where healthy skin is removed from an unaffected area of the body and used to replace lost or damaged skin

Skin flap surgery – surgery in which a piece of tissue from one part of the body is transferred to another, along with the blood vessels that keep it alive; this is called flap surgery because it often remains partially attached to the body while healthy tissue is repositioned.

Tissue expansion – the surrounding tissue is stretched to allow the body to “grow” extra skin, which can then be used to help reconstruct the nearby area

In addition to these techniques, plastic surgeons use many other methods such as:

Fat transfer or grafting – removing fat from one area and placing it in another, often used to correct inequality

Vacuum closure – a method in which a vacuum is applied to a wound through a sterile piece of foam or gauze to draw out fluid and promote healing

Camouflage makeup or cream

Prosthetic devices such as artificial limbs

Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Applications

Although Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery seems to be a general discipline, “Aesthetics” is usually performed for cosmetic purposes, while Reconstructive surgeries are performed to correct congenital or acquired dysfunctions in the human body.

Conditions requiring plastic and reconstructive intervention:

Medically, reconstructive surgery refers to a procedure that is necessary to restore a part of the body. Reconstructive interventions include complex wound closure, traumatic reconstruction or surgeries designed to rebuild something rather than improve it.

Conditions requiring aesthetic surgical intervention:

Cosmetic surgery is an elective or non-medically necessary procedure designed to improve someone’s appearance. For example, breast augmentation is cosmetic surgery for a different reason than breast reconstruction. A woman who has had a radical mastectomy needs breast reconstruction to replace the tissue and nipple that were removed due to cancer. The person who needs reconstruction does not undergo an operation to change the body shape (i.e. for aesthetic purposes), but rather replaces the problem area.

Aesthetic surgery application fields

Nose Aesthetics (Rhinoplasty) Operations

Rhinoplasty is an operation that changes the shape and appearance of the external nose. Often, internal surgery is performed at the same time to improve breathing or sinus conditions.

Rhinoplasty can be performed when the nose is too large, when the tip is too bulging, when there is a hump on the bridge. Because the nose is curved, it may require straightening, often following an injury.

Breast Aesthetic Operations (Reduction, Augmentation and Lift)

Breast aesthetics is a plastic surgery procedure that can increase the size and change the shape of the breasts. It is a procedure that involves the surgical placement of saline or silicone breast implants. In some cases, breast aesthetics can be performed as a fat transfer.

Facial operations

A facelift or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging on the face and neck. A facelift involves tightening the facial muscles and trimming or redrawing the facial skin to approximate a smoother, firmer facial appearance.

One may decide to have facial plastic surgery to help reduce the signs of aging by tightening muscles, removing facial fat and smoothing and tightening the facial appearance. It is important to discuss options and expectations with the plastic surgeon for facial operations.

Operations related to body shaping

Today, in the field of aesthetic surgery, there are many solutions for problems such as adiposity and sagging, which can be seen in many parts of the body and which people may want to change. With procedures such as fat injection, liposuction, stretching and implants, unwanted features of the body can be changed. For body shaping purposes, operations such as waist thinning, hip or breast shaping can also be applied.
