The field of medicine has shown great leaps from simple surgery devices to extraordinary intricate systems for effective treatments. The technology of surgeries is growing, and the particular area of plastic surgery has been given more significance nowadays. Taking this in mind, let us peep into the top ten technologies useful for plastic surgeries.
1. DURAPORE ADVANCED TAPEDurapore tape is a special adhesive that is useful for surgical needs. 3M Durapore is an advanced tape which is specifically for the tubes that have to stay in place without moving. This product is suitable for any surfaces like moist, or humid and even for having different textures. The tape can fix evenly in the requiring area and removing is also easy by lifting the edges. The advantage of the tape lies in the fact that scars of skin do not stay after a few days under the tape.
2. BIO-ABSORBABLE SURGICAL MESH
The Bio-absorbable Surgical Mesh is from Chicago. The mesh is useful for reconstructive cosmetic surgery. During the operation, this product is fixed in our body for the part being operated. After a year the mesh is automatically seen for absorption by our system and the marks of the surgery will also be invisible.
The spray-on-skin device is mainly for the adults in severe burn injuries. This device is from the Avita Medical Centre in California. Before starting the surgery, the patient’s skin sample is picked and the spray-on–skin process is under observation for continuing. The timing of the treatment is only 30 minutes. This treatment is useful in second and third-degree burns also.
4. EZBRA BREAST DRESSING
Ezbra dressing is an innovative invention of breast dressing methods like biopsies, reconstructions, and implants. This device is available as in a sterile package and is strictly for the one-time use.
5. BODY PLASTIKA
Body plastic is a cosmetic surgery method which can shape your human structure properly. Nose, chin, jaws, and cheeks can take shape with this surgical procedure. Body plastika is suitable for liposuction treatments too.
6. NANOFIBRE WITH ANTIBIOTIC
Researchers from Texas and Stevens Institute of Technology invented the nanofibre antibiotics. The Nano fiber coats with polymeric scales and produces the antibiotics whenever in need. The same is placed in medium containers that will coat the material’s surface.
7. ENDOSCOPIC FACE LIFT
Endoscopic face lifts help to tighten the skin and smooth the wrinkles. During the endoscopic surgery, a long pipe with a clear camera in the corner is useful to see the area under the skin. This method of treatment is a scar-less one. The patients can return to their work within a week. The endoscopic technology is useful for both genders who are in their 30’s to 50’s.
8. NEW SMART BANDAGE
The new smart bandage contains the meditative drugs and delivers the medicines when in necessary. This device has two main parts-one is a pH balanced bandage, and another one is drug contained microbeads. The smart aid is a wearable medical device.
9. OPTICAL TOOL TO SPOT NERVES
By using the optical nerve spotter device, doctors can locate the spots of the nerves by optically emitting radiations easily. This technology uses polarized light for spotting the nerves. Practically, surgeons can find up to 77% of the body’s nerves.
10. SKIN GUN THERAPY FOR BURNS
New York-based firm-RenovaCare designs this technology for the treatment of burns from their stem cells. When a particular area of the skin gets injured in a burn, the regenerative therapy is undergone to replace the burning tissues. Unlike skin grafting the skin, the gun is a fast healing method. The treatment will finish within 2 hours, and RenovaCare is also said to be useful for second-degree burns over the body.
