currently features a slideshow of some of the plastic surgery industry’s newfangled procedures and techniques. Beware, says Allure, because plastic surgery featured on TV shows and otherwise advertised as new and innovative may be untested or ineffective.

Allure suggests the word “new” may be something to be cautious about in plastic surgery. The slideshow includes some of the following plastic surgery treatments:

  • The Vampire Facelift
  • The stem-cell facelift
  • Ulthera
  • Fat injections for breast enlargement without implants
  • Foot lifts

While these procedures may be safe and effective, they do not have the safety record and tried-and-true results of more traditional plastic surgery.

Instead of trying to choose a plastic surgery procedure based on what you see on TV or hear from your friends, you should discuss your options with a board-certified plastic surgeon. By discussing your problem areas and what you would like to change, an experienced and knowledgeable plastic surgeon can determine the most effective treatment options available to you.

If you live in Texas and want to discuss whether plastic surgery may be right for you, please contact the Cosmetic Surgical Center to schedule a consultation with experienced Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Vasdev Rai.
