With the advent of Botox therapy and hyaluronic acid fillers, non-surgical options have certainly increased over the past years. I believe that these tools are adding to the possibilities of a plastic surgeon, since their indications do not necessarily interfere with surgical options.
The use of autologous fat-transplants has certainly seen a significant rise, and I believe that additional knowledge will emerge from this technique. Also, the use of stem cells, such as adipose-derived stem cells poses a great potential for plastic surgeons.
