Since ancient times, people have been preoccupied with the way they look and tried to improve it. However, plastic surgery has developed not from a fad, but from a necessity. During the First World War, a large number of soldiers suffered facial wounds produced by bullets and shells. It was when Harold Gillies, who was recognized as the father of modern plastic surgery, tried to rebuild the faces destroyed by the war.

However, cosmetic medical procedures have greatly improved since that time and notably in the past two decades. Such procedures can either be surgical or nonsurgical, and the most advanced are the non-invasive ones.

One of the most common “taboo” topics is urinary incontinence, which is a common affection for women. Its actual incidence is undervalued due to the tendency of patients that avoid asking for specialist advice since they consider this an embarrassing issue.

The clinical manifestation of this condition is the loss of a variable amount of urine in situations that are accompanied by an increase in intra-abdominal pressure: coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting weights or other physical effort. Urine loss is predictable (the patient knows that if he makes a certain effort he will lose urine) and preventable. The greater the amount of urine lost, the more severe and socially stigmatized.

The causes for urinary incontinence are various, but the most important are vaginal birth history and decrease in estrogen hormone levels after menopause. In addition to personal and social hygiene issues, the urinary incontinence also exposes the affected patient to a number of medical complications: the occurrence to contact dermatitis (following prolonged contact with the skin of the area with irritating urine) and the occurrence of urinary tract infections, which can become potentially severe.

The treatment for urinary incontinence is eminently surgical and aims to restore or refill insufficient anatomical support from the pelvic floor. Menopause symptoms can include urinary incontinence due to a decrease in estrogen hormone levels. Fortunately, the medicine has advanced over years there is a real treatment for this issue. Academy Laser Clinics provides one of the best non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments to strengthen and restore the healthy functioning of vaginal and urethral tissue to support urinary control, including the clinically proven MonaLisa Touch laser, a quick and comfortable, walk in/walk out procedure that can successfully treat a range of vulvo-vaginal and urinary incontinence symptoms and urethral connective tissue. This treatment is great when it comes to regenerating the vaginal tissue to a healthier, youthful state. 

When it comes to women’s insecurities, small lips are one of the most common one and many women look for lip augmentation procedures. Due to age and hereditary factors, many women worry that they have lost volume in their lips, leaving them aged and wrinkled. Lip augmentation can be a real solution, since it can enhance or restore a fuller shape to your lips and help you get fuller, more luscious lips. Dermal lip fillers can be used to add volume, enhance the shape of your lips, and improve their elasticity. This procedure is a minimally invasive injectable cosmetic treatment that is quick and easy, with immediate results. There is very little downtime involved and patients report only very little discomfort during the procedure.

This procedure can involve various side effects, such as:

– Asymmetry after the injections that may persist for several months or until complete dissolution of the substance

– Bleeding, bruising or even hematoma due to trauma to the area

– Infections, eruptions, reactivation of herpes or acne

– Nodules or granulomas, deformities that can persist for a long period after the procedure

– Accelerated dissolution of the substance in case the instructions post-procedure are not followed

– Solid and permanent implants often produce vulgar or unnatural results and their removal is only surgical

– The risk of scarring

When it comes to men’s insecurities, they are not always at ease when it comes to body concerns neither. Research shows that up to 60% of men have concerns about the size of their penis and up to 50% of men between the ages of 40 – 65 have differing levels of issues with erectile dysfunction. The majority of men are interested how to get a bigger penis, and various clinics have started performing such procedures.

Apart from the aesthetic aspect that many men want to have, there is also a functional one that includes congenital malformations (hypospadias or penis fibrosis) that limit or stop the ability of some men to lead a normal sex life. The most common reason for this surgery is the aesthetic, and the treatments lead to the thickening or elongation of the penis.

Therefore, from the point of view of the procedure, penis enlargement may be temporary or permanent. When it comes to innovation, penis enlargement solutions have been improved. For example, CALIBRE Clinic offers non-invasive treatments for penis enlargement and erectile dysfunction. CALIBRE provides the best pain free alternative to penis enlargement surgery and the PRP Procedure offers a non-medicated option for a healthier erection. CALIBRE treatments are suitable for all men who are concerned with the size of their penis and the clinic also guarantees qualified and experienced doctors who perform their duties with discretion.
