Latest trends in Plastic Surgery and Skin Care explained by Dr. Jhonny Salomon
By Karen Huggins
Miami is famous for its beautiful people as well as its beautiful beaches, but it is also a popular destination for medical tourism and plastic surgery. Firm skin and a youthful appearance are something a lot of us take for granted in our twenties because we feel like we will look this good for years. We all age eventually, it’s a natural process that no one can escape. The eyes are one of the first things people see when they look at someone. No one wants their eyes to look tired or droopy. Depending on factors such as genetics, sun damage, diet, skincare, and smoking, the eyes can be one of the first places to show signs of aging. My mom has beautiful skin and always told me to drink plenty of water, apply sunscreen daily, eat a diet rich in antioxidants, and use quality skincare products. Hoping to delay the visible signs of aging in my 30’s it is time to do a little bit more for this area of my body.
I wanted to share with you the latest techniques for skin care (especially eyes) and plastic surgery, so I decided to visit Dr. Jhonny Salomon, an eminent and one of the best Plastic Surgeons in Miami. His love for the arts made him a talented musician, painter and photographer, and his intelligence, a leader in his field: Plastic Surgery. The Plastic Surgeon is similar to an artist, aiming for the finest results using a palette of the latest, most advanced medical and surgical techniques. Cosmetic Surgery isn’t always a straightforward procedure, but rather a cultivation of various fine adjustments, similar to the creation of art. It is for this reason, that Dr. Jhonny Salomon approaches each surgical procedure with love and a deep artistic point of view. Dr. Jhonny Salomon’s work has been recognized and published in famous magazines and newspapers around the world: Vogue, Vanidades, Haute Living, Ocean Drive among others. Dr. Jhonny Salomon’s Plastic Surgery office is located in Miami, Florida. The center includes an outstanding Medical Spa handling non-surgical procedures including Botox and Restylane injections, medical peels, laser hair removal, and tattoo removal, among several other treatments. It is my second year doing the under-eyelid procedure with Dr. Jhonny and I loved it! My dark circles disappeared and my skin under the eyelid improved in an amazing way.
KH – Dr. Jhonny, could you describe the latest trends in Plastic Surgery and other Procedures?
JS – Recently and for 2020 the trend is being more natural. In Plastic Surgery many patients that had their breast implants in the 90’s wants to reduce them or remove them. More natural results with techniques removing the fat and then using the fat to rebuild other parts of the body. The other trend is with BBL for more natural results and body contouring. When the fat is removed, there is a new trend to reuse it to build up the chest (for man), for the chin/jawline and cheeks (for woman). People are looking for more natural results in plastic surgery and custom made procedures. Trends not being performed: texture implants, now smoother implants. People are looking for custom procedures and not overall procedures, we don’t want to have the same nose as others.
KH – Are you offering new permanent procedures?
JS – Fillers are lasting longer (one and a half years or almost 2 years for some of them). With the Fat Grafting procedure, using your own fat can be used as a permanent filler for other areas such as cheeks and chin. For small amounts of Fat Grafting you don’t need general anesthesia, it is done under local anesthesia. In the U.S. we don’t have permanent fillers approved by the FDA. We also have other procedures at the spa: anti cellulite, weight loss, muscle building, laser for the skin, skin pen, full facial department (HydraFacial, facial peels).
Dr. Jhonny Salomon created his own skin care line that can be incorporated into your wellness and maintenance regime.
