A Xinhua, China, woman was recently apprehended after fleeing from her home in Xinhua to the city of Shenzen in an attempt to evade payment of $3.7 million in personal credit card debt. But when police located 59-year-old Zhu Najuan, they received quite a surprise.

"According to news reports, Ms. Najuan had undergone so much plastic surgery, she was nearly unrecognizable," says Henderson, Nevada, plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Mitchell.

Researchers at the Osaka Medical College in Osaka, Japan, have recently developed an augmented reality (AR) program that could assist plastic surgeons during surgical procedures. The program works by creating a 3D simulation of the patient’s desired results and then using AR to project those results over the patient’s face during the procedure. 

Researchers Koichi Ueda, Ph.D., and Daisuke Mitsuno, M.D., believe the AR program could assist with eight current common surgical procedures, with more possible as the technology further develops.

You’ve probably heard the terms "breast lift" and "breast augmentation" before, maybe even used interchangeably. But did you know that a breast lift is a completely different procedure than a breast augmentation? Whether you’re just curious or are considering a surgical procedure to improve the size, shape, volume or lift of your breasts, there are many things to consider.

Whether you’ve already had a cosmetic procedure such as a breast lift, liposuction or abdominoplasty or are considering one, you may be wondering why your surgeon has prescribed the use of a compression garment following your procedure. A compression garment is a foundation garment you wear under your clothing like a bra or underwear. The difference between compression garments and regular undergarments is that compression garments are more like the shapewear you might use to smooth out the appearance of body fat underneath your clothing. The major difference is compression garments aren’t for hiding flaws. They’re important medical-grade garments designed to help the body heal from cosmetic surgery procedures.
