One of the hottest trends in plastic surgery at the moment is the use of cannulas. Cannulas provide plastic surgeons with the ability to target specific areas of the body without the need for invasive surgery. But, did you know that not all cannulas are created equal?
A brand new cannula that has been FDA approved gives our practice the ability to target areas like never before! Both minimally-invasive and maximally effective, these new cannulas are ideal for those looking to improve a specific aspect of the body.
Check out Dr. Steven Davis on YouTube as he dives into a few more reasons why cannulas are not all created equal. There are tons of different options for you to choose from! Contact us today to learn more about the possibility of each one.
Hi everyone, Dr. Steven Davis at Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery. One of the hottest things that I’m sure you probably already have heard about is this thing called a cannula. And in plastic surgery, we’ve been using cannulas for years and years and years.
But the latest thing that you may be hearing about is that there’s a new cannula that’s been FDA approved to be used in facial injections of all different types.
So that if we’re going into the lips, if we’re going into the cheeks, anywhere, we can now use this cannula. But did you know that not all cannulas are created equal? Let me show you what I mean. This is a liposuction cannula. And the liposuction cannulas have all different heads to them, depending on what you’re trying to do with them.
There are different sizes, different shapes, different openings. And in general, it’s like a metal straw that has different kinds of holes at the end of it. So this is one kind.
This one has another kind of head to it, but we also call cannulas something that we use to actually inject local anesthetic. So this cannula looks much more like a sprinkler head. Where you’re gonna be able to inject local into an area.
Another kind of cannula is the kind that we’re talking about now in facial injectables, where we can actually use the cannula to inject either product like Juvederm and Restylane and things like that, or we can actually take the fat that we used from using this to do actual liposuctioning and then reinject your fat by using these special kinds of cannulas like this.
But the latest and greatest are these disposable ones. And this is from one company where you actually have a very flexible plastic, kind of a cannula that we can inject anything into the skin or the neck or any areas like that. And this is the brand new one that’s been FDA approved by Allergan.
So just for your information, when you hear the word cannula just know that it could mean a lot of different things. Talk to you soon.
