DR. DEVGAN IS PART OF GALDERMA'S NEW WOMEN IN AESTHETICS LEADERSHIP COUNCIL

Increasing the number of women in leadership positions is a trend many hope to see continue in 2019. As an award-winning plastic surgeon, CEO of Dr. Devgan Scientific Beauty, Chief Medical Officer of Real Self, and mother to 6 kids, Dr. Devgan is an incredible example of how successful female leaders can be.

According to Alisa Lask, in most industries in the U.S women hold just 25% of senior leadership positions, while women in the healthcare field hold 49% of those top posts. Galderma hopes to accelerate the trend of women in leadership roles in medical societies, conducting clinical research, supporting training organizations, and to foster support for female focused aesthetic business ownership.

Dr Devgan has been asked to join a select group of leaders who will work together as an Expert Panel of Advisors. With the council Galderma hopes to shape a nationwide course of action for supporting female providers in aesthetics.

DR. DEVGAN FEATURED IN NEW BEAUTY REGARDING NEW TRENDS IN AESTHETIC PLASTIC SURGERY

Dr. Devgan is interviewed by Jolene Edgar on why women are getting facelifts younger than ever. Generation X is taking precautions to not age as quickly as the women before them. They are having facelifts in even their 40s.

In response to why they have been going under the knife at an earlier age, Dr. Devgan’s response is clear, “Aiming to maintain their current visage—to keep their reflections recognizable for as long as possible—they’ve adopted a new approach to aging. They want to look better, but still the same, and having a facelift at a younger age allows that magical paradox to occur.”  The under-50 set now comprises nearly a third of Dr. Devgan’s facelift.

Injectables are not having the lasting affect Generation X wants. According to Dr. Devgan, “If you have at least a centimeter of pinchable laxity at the level of the jowls, jawline or nasolabial folds, you have to acknowledge that injectables aren’t going to make that go away.” Dr. Devgan also says “those who overindulge by chasing folds and slack skin with a syringe can wind up looking very clownish.

DR. DEVGAN FEATURED IN OK! MAGAZINE AS A LEADING LIP EXPERT

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons lip injections have increased 60 percent since 2000. As Dr. Devgan states, “lip injections have also resulted in demand for a procedure that delivers a more permanent fullness with no upkeep. For a Kylie Jenner look, five to six syringes, which only last about six months, can be an expensive proposition”. The lip obsession is evolving.

What is Dr. Devgan’s solution to this problem? The lip lift, a surgical procedure that increases vertical height of the top lip. This procedure is a great option for the clients who have lips getting thinner due to age. It is also a great option to consider if you do not want to be dependent on fillers or have “duck” looking lips.

Patients are tired of repeat injections and want something more long lasting and uniform. You can also look into getting the lip lift procedure done by using RealSelf. If you haven’t heard, RealSelf is a community-driven website composed of reviews, popularity rankings, and other general information about aesthetics medicine and cosmetic treatments. The site design allows users to ask questions to doctors, write treatment reviews, and share photos of their experiences.

DR. DEVGAN FEATURED IN ALL ABOUT THE TRUTH EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards has been accused of getting surgery done in the past but in most recent claims fans and foes are accusing the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star of getting a mini- face lift! Kyle Richards looks have changed over the years and fans are questioning what her secret is. The Bravolebrity has admitted she under went a nose job in 2006.

In a recent Instagram post Kyle revealed she has treatments like botox and lasers done. Kyle later revealed that PRP treatment on her face and lasers is what keeps her looking young and fresh. Dr. Devgan explains that a PRP treatment is a Platelet- rich Plasma protein that is extracted from the patients own blood. The patient's blood is inserted into a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. Platelet- rich Plasma is a clear, yellow fluid that has an increased concentration of growth factors than regular blood. It is used to encourage healing the growth and is also known as "liquid gold."

Platelet-rich plasma has been praised as “liquid gold” for its all the benefits it has for the skin. The plasma is the important component which contains a high concentration of platelets, stem cells, and growth factors. After filtering out the blood cells, you are left with a yellowish liquid full of plasma and a higher than normal amount of platelets.The PRP can then be injected like a dermal filler into the patient’s face, or it can be used with micro needling! You may have heard of micro needling with PRP before, as it is commonly referred to as the “vampire facelift.”

IS DERMAL MICRO- CORING THE NEW NON- SURGICAL FACELIFT ?

Over the last 20 years machines and injectables has risen. Though machines are still popular for surgeries, how can one resist a non-surgical armamentarium: a powerful way to lift and tighten the skin. Non surgical procedures mean little to no down time and who can fault that!? A Boston- based biotech company called Cytrellis comes the world's first ever dermal micro-coring device.

This is an energy- free needling tool that mechanically drills out minuscule columns of skin- each less than half a millimeter in diameter. This shrinks the surface area of your overall skin. Unlike a facelift, micro-coring does not affect the muscles or fascia of the face. The main goal of a surgery other than trimming away skin is to hoist the fallen skin to recapture a more youthful version of your face. Micro- coring might just be the new non surgical facelift.

Consenting patients and surgeons are sharing these uncensored, graphic videos of going under the knife. It has become a popular trend to put in a specific hashtags like #drdevgan to search and find the latest beauty trends and operations. It has become a an effective marketing strategy to reach new clients. It is incredible how platforms like Instagram make it fun and easy to control and show the world your content. 

By sharing photos and videos of surgical procedures and final results, surgeons like Dr. Devgan have built a monumental following of people who regularly check and engage in their content. This has positively influenced the growth in popularity of surgeons. Ten years ago patients would bring in a magazine photograph of a super model or celebrity and now people are bringing in Instagram filtered photos of themselves.

Dr. Devgan agrees that it is a great way to market yourself but like anything else there are pros and cons to using social media to find your surgeon. Social media is unregulated, which makes it hard to thoroughly and diligently make sure what you are seeing is safe and accurate. We must be careful when watching certain doctors and surgeons who are not board-certified like Dr. Devgan and many of her colleagues. There are plenty of questionable characters abusing the lack of regulation online. Dr. Devgan herself has had her photos and videos stolen!
