Plastic Surgery of the Future

The rate at which cosmetic surgical procedures have advanced in the last twenty years leaves little doubt that what we do today will be nothing like what we do – and the results achieved – in the future. Some of these future advancements could include:

  • Intrauterine surgery to correct birth defects without scarring (cleft lip and palate).
  • Use of laser technology to tighten or shrink the skin with instantaneous results and without redness or prolonged recovery.
  • Alliance of plastic surgery with Anti-aging medicine:
    • Stem cell therapy
    • Human Growth Hormone
  • Better understanding of the healing process will lead to more control over the surgical scar.
  • Laboratory growth of cartilage culture to use in nasal surgery (obviates the need to harvest the cartilage from elsewhere on the body).
  • Laboratory growth of body segments such as ear cartilage framework to use in reconstruction following trauma or cancer surgery.
