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.

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.

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.

MTV’S “True Life” one of the first reality television shows to air is coming back after 21 years! Why? Our social media obsessed society has decided that the Kardashian clan is what defines 2019 beauty standards. The first episode of the the Emmy award- winning reality show focuses on people obsessed with looking like the Kardashians. Women are feeling pressured to have a big butt and fake breasts.

Plastic surgery and procedures have evolved dramatically over the decades. In the past people did not feel as comfortable being open about wanting cosmetic plastic surgery. Now, in 2019 celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian have paved the way for society to be open and confident regarding cosmetic surgeries and procedures.

According to Dr. Devgan there is less guilt about undergoing procedures. “Five or 10 years ago, people might have brought in pictures of a magazine cover supermodel. Now, they're bringing in pictures of themselves, but just in a slightly optimized way." In a report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons scientists have called “Snapchat dysmorphia” one of the reasons plastic surgery is steadily increasing. The most popular being the Brazilian butt lift. This focuses on enhancing the overall size, shape, and perkiness of the backside.

How To Spot Skin Cancer

by Dr. Lara Devgan

Most of us don't give a second thought to those pesky moles and freckles that crop up on our bodies over time. We're healthy, and we take care of ourselves, we think. They must be nothing, right?

Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, with more than two million people diagnosed every year.

In fact, each year, there are more new cases of skin cancer than new cases of breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, and colon cancer COMBINED. One in five Americans will get skin cancer, and one in three Caucasians will get basal cell carcinoma (the most common form of skin cancer) over the course of their lives.

How can you tell if that spot is suspicious?

If it's new, different from other spots, or in any way concerning, see a doctor. Many people use the "ABCDE" rule.

A = Asymmetry

If the spot is asymmetrical, lopsided, or uneven looking, it could be a cancer. Most normal moles and freckles are even circles or ovals.

B = Border

If the spot has a jagged or irregular border, it could be a cancer. Most normal moles have a smooth straight-line border.

C = Color

If the spot has a variable color or several different colors, it could be a cancer. Most normal moles are even in pigmentation.

D = Diameter

If the spot is larger than 4 to 6 mm in diameter (about the size of a pencil eraser), it could be a cancer. Most normal spots are small.

E = Evolving

If the spot is evolving, growing, or changing over time, it could be a cancer. Most normal moles, freckles, and birth marks are relatively constant over time.

What can you do to guard against skin cancer?

1. Wear a zinc and titanium based sunscreen every day.

Make this a habit with absolutely no exceptions, like brushing your teeth or putting on your shoes. Sunscreen is a must.

2. Limit your sun exposure.

Try to avoid spending time outside between 10am and 2pm, when the sun's rays are the strongest. Almost half of our lifetime sun exposure occurs between ages 19 and 40, when it's common to spend a lot of time outdoors.

3. Pay attention to your body.

Do a monthly surveillance of spots on your body. Pay attention to any changes. See a dermatologist regularly for skin exams.

4. Seek help early.

Skin cancers that are caught early are extremely survivable and treatable, and surgery to remove them is much less disfiguring. See your doctor right away for any concerns.
