With more than 14 million cosmetic surgeries performed in 2012 alone, Americans are visiting their cosmetic surgeons now more than ever. This increase has primarily been driven by the growing availability of minimally invasive procedures, which are appealing because many patients see them as an easy way to retain a more youthful appearance.
The benefits of minimally invasive cosmetic surgery include a shortened recovery time and less visible scars. Patients may be familiar with the term “minimally invasive cosmetic surgery” or perhaps “limited incision cosmetic surgery,” both of which refer to techniques used by cosmetic surgeons to shorten or eliminate incisions that result in scarring.
Many aesthetic surgical procedures can be performed using minimally invasive procedures that result in nominal scarring:
- Facial rejuvenation can often be achieved through injectables and fillers, facial peels, and laser treatments. Procedures can be combined to gain maximum improvement.
- Breast augmentation procedures may be performed with incisions and scars that are limited to the axilla, areola, or under the breast. In general, saline implants require shorter incisions than those needed for silicone.
- Breast reductions are commonly performed using liposuction, which can be used to reduce volume alone, and uses small incisions that result in nearly imperceptible scars. Also known as mammoplasty, breast reductions can aid in symmetry and alleviate back pain.
