Natural Looking Results with Petite Plastic Surgery

Patrizia Barrueco from Taqtik explains more about the benefits of Petite Plastic Surgery, the latest in non-invasive, non-surgical treatments available in South Korea.
Worldwide demand is growing for aesthetic methods that provide a natural looking, but effective result. The Non-surgical anti-aging treatments included in Petite Plastic Surgery (micro-needling and regenerative therapy) can achieve an increasingly more popular natural look, in comparison to the drastic changes of a surgical face lift.
Micro-needle Therapy System (MTS)
A nature-friendly skin regeneration procedure, MTS induces the skin to regenerate cells on its own. During MTS treatment, tiny needles are used to cause physical damage and stimulate fibroblasts and induce collagen re-modelling. The body attempts to heal the damage, and this also creates pathways for drugs to more effectively penetrate the skin and induce skin regeneration. Micro-needles are attached to rollers to treat acne scars and enlarged pores.
  • Tightens pores
  • Moisturizes skin
  • Treating acne
  • Reduces appearance of acne scars, depressed scars and wrinkles.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
During PRP therapy blood is spun at high speed and separates into blood cells, platelets and serum that contain an abundant amount of growth factors. PRP Therapy is a safe procedure that stimulates healing growth factors to be separated and concentrated. A specialized device (Prosys Kit) is used to inject the treated blood into the area of damage and stimulate skin regeneration.
The benefits of combining treatments
A combination of both MTS and PRP treatments are recommended for those who have reduced skin elasticity, fine lines, acne prone skin, acne scars or depressed scars. The treatment is carried out in the following steps.
  1. Blood is collected
  2. Blood is centrifuged
  3. PRP is extracted from blood
  4. Skin is disinfected
  5. MTS procedure is performed
  6. PRP is injected
  7. A soothing mask is applied

Personalized 3G Nose Design at VG Plastic Surgery

A common concern about rhinoplasty is that the results will look unnatural. That after surgery you won’t look like yourself anymore, and it will be brazenly obvious that you have had work done. At VG Plastic surgery in South Korea, they use state of the art 3D diagnostic equipment to ensure you end up with the ideal nose for the shape of your face.
Personalized nose design

At VG Plastic Surgery precise analysis are carried out along with diagnosis procedures, using 3D CT Scans prior to surgery.  The 3D CT equipment presents 3D images of the patient based on risks can be minimized, and accuracy enhanced during surgery. 3D imaging can identify problems that can’t be detected through a regular consultation.

Instead of creating the same nose design for every patient, VG Plastic Surgery performs an accurate analysis of each patient’s face shape to create the ideal nose.  Stylish nose shape accentuates attractive features and minimizes aesthetic flaws.

Overview of procedure

A 3D CT scan provides a detailed analysis of the size and shape of the nasal bone, the septal naval cartilage and the degree of curvature of the bone and/or cartilage. The surgeon then checks for enlargement of the inferior nasal concha, presence of implants and determine the implant type and any problems including:

  • Shape and size of septal nasal cartilage- the scan will determine if the patient is a good candidate for a rhinoplasty using the septal nasal cartilage.
  • Septal deviation- if the patient has septal deviation a resection can be performed at the same time as the procedure.
  • Width of the nasal bone- if deemed necessary a nasal bone width revision (nasal bone osteotomy) can be performed at the same time as the procedure.
  • Enlarged interior nasal concha- an enlarged interior nasal concha that causes nasal congestion can be remedied during the procedure.
Why choose a 3D rhinoplasty over regular a rhinoplasty?

More and more plastic surgeons are choosing to use 3D technology because it allows them to more accurately plan for a safer surgery. Patients of 3D technology are seeing better and more natural looking results.
