b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_189645428_20180330-193003_1.jpgPlastic surgery is one of those topics that everyone has an opinion about, regardless of whether they’ve had it done or not. For some people, it’s considered elitist and only for the rich and famous. For others, it’s considered unnecessary and risky, and to some, it’s just wasteful, because they feel people should just embrace what makes them different. But to a growing number of people, these outdated opinions about plastic surgery are becoming a thing of the past.

Recently, plastic surgery social network RealSelf released the findings of a survey on attitudes toward plastic surgery, and the results show signs of a major shift in thinking about the field.

"The good news is that when asked if their partner's desire to get a cosmetic procedure would change how they felt about their partner, 45 percent of respondents said it wouldn’t change how they felt about them," says Dr. Ryan Mitchell, a plastic surgeon from Henderson, Nevada. "Another 38 percent said it would depend on what procedure their partner wanted. Only 13 percent said it would make them think negatively of their partner."

While RealSelf did not provide any data for attitudes toward plastic surgery from previous years, Mitchell says it should be interesting to watch the changes from today on.

"Hopefully they will make this a regular survey and can monitor the changing attitudes toward this field over time," he says. "Because I think the more people see their friends and family and neighbors are accepting of this kind of surgery, the more they’ll be accepting of it themselves."

Other interesting things to note: Users in the 45-and-older age group were the most accepting of plastic surgery, while respondents from the Midwest had the highest instance of negative feelings toward plastic surgery.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_74507461.jpgIt’s safe to say that big behinds are having their moment in the spotlight these days. With celebrities like the Kardashian sisters, Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj stealing headlines left and right, all eyes are on them - and their curves. So, it’s not surprising that across America, women are flocking to plastic surgeons’ offices for silicone butt implants and Brazilian Butt-Lifts. But many patients don’t realize that these procedures come with a lot of different risks, as well as pluses and minuses. We asked Henderson, Nevada, plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Mitchell what patients should know before they head to a plastic surgeon to pump up their posterior.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_307246082.jpgAs the adage goes, "everyone loves a bargain." After all, what’s not to love about saving money? But sometimes that great deal isn’t so great after all. Take plastic surgery, for example. While patients may think they are being smart consumers by calling around to find the best price, that can easily backfire. Dr. Ryan Mitchell of Henderson, Nevada, explains why.

"The problem with doctor-shopping for plastic surgeons is that the fee you pay is based on the doctor’s skill," he says. "It’s not like getting a good deal on a toaster. You’re not getting an identical product for less by going with the lowest price."

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_240864379.jpgNo matter where you live, chances are you’ve experienced a challenging time or two in your life. But what sets us apart from each other is how we cope with those challenges. For the people of Greece, a surprising trend has emerged from the economic depression that has devastated the country. Dubbed the "lipstick effect," a record number of Greeks are turning to plastic surgery to help perk them up in this time of crisis, and it’s left a lot of people scratching their heads.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_565403683.jpgA New York district judge has ruled that Springfield Medical Aesthetic, PC of Roslyn, New York, violated the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) when it denied breast-reduction surgery to three HIV-positive men in 2015. The lawsuit was initially filed by Mark Milano, and two other patients joined suit shortly after.

U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres ruled that the doctors at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York failed to adequately evaluate the medical facts of each individual case when they declined to perform surgery on each of the three patients involved in the suit due to their HIV diagnosis.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-33.jpgMall bangs. Permanent lipliner. Bell bottoms. Trends come and go - some of them not soon enough - but when they’re here, they can cause quite a stir. This is nowhere more apparent than in the world of cosmetic surgery. A field that used to be associated with breast implants and rhinoplasties for the rich and famous just 20 years ago is now more commonly associated with Brazilian butt-lifts, Botox and hyaluronic acid lip injections for the selfie crowd.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_53998624.jpgFor the average consumer, plastic surgery is an investment procedure, something that either requires financing or, at a minimum, a lot of budgeting to afford. But women in Hong Kong are reportedly taking matters into their own hands, spending money on at-home, do-it-yourself devices that promise to correct a lengthy list of problem areas without surgery. But do these so-called DIY devices really do anything at all? Plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Mitchell of Henderson, Nevada, weighs in.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_527745967.jpgWhen headlines recently alleged that celebrity Kylie Jenner may be pregnant, many wondered if the reality star would continue to get her signature lip fillers during pregnancy. In recent years, Jenner has become equally as well known for her allegedly cosmetically enhanced physique as she has for her reality show. But what many people may not realize is that cosmetic treatments like lip fillers and Botox aren’t safe for pregnant women - and no reputable doctor will perform them on a pregnant patient.

Why? Because there have been no studies proving the effects of Botox or fillers on an unborn child. While there have been cases of women getting these procedures without knowing they are pregnant and going on to deliver healthy babies, there is no guarantee that this will be true for every patient, and it's simply not worth the risk.

Following in the footsteps of her fashion-mogul stepdaughter Ivanka, Melania Trump’s face is rising in popularity among patients looking for plastic surgery procedures.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_290399447.jpgIt used to be that when people thought about plastic surgery, they considered it a luxury reserved for those in the very top tiers of society, such as celebrities and socialites. Today, thanks to lower prices and more surgeons, plastic surgery has become more accessible to the middle class, and though it is still often thought of as a luxury, an increasing number of Americans have undergone plastic surgery procedures.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_609506765.jpgIf you think back to 30, 20 or even 10 years ago, plastic surgery used to be a very taboo topic. Tabloid magazine covers hinted, suggested and outright accused celebrities of "having work done," and whether they did or not, most of these suggestions were met with denial. Today, while much has changed to make plastic surgery more accessible and more acceptable, many celebrities still will not admit to having surgical procedures or fillers - and many tabloid magazines still publish what they believe to be "before and after" shots to back up their theories.

However, for as much attention that has been paid to the breast, very little has been paid to the nipple. But that may be changing, as an increasing number of women are turning to plastic surgeons for nipple augmentation procedures.

When you think about undergoing a plastic surgery procedure, you’re probably only thinking about the physical outcome of your surgery. A breast augmentation will give you fuller breasts with less sagging, while a rhinoplasty may straighten a crooked nose or remove a bump. But what you may not consider is the positive effect that procedure might have on the rest of your life!

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.
