How does anybody predict that cosmetic surgery will change in the future?

Will nanorobots have any significant role in this in the future, e.g. because they can change the shape of certain features far more precisely than currently possible and it does not require incision of the skin etc.?

I read that it's only getting more popular.

 

If you mean the procedures themselves, then yeah they'll obviously change.

I joked with a friend when we watched the printed kidney video that you'd be able to grow a bigger dick, I was kidding but that's probably true.

Extrapolate that, grow boobs, grow faces. 

 

Nanites that aid healing, removing scar tissue? Getting rid of fat cells?

I think that full body transplants will be available - so that you can have your brain implanted into a healthy, lab-grown (or even artificial) body.

Haha! Who knows?!

It is, as far as I am aware. I'm hoping to get some body hair reduction (one of the many types that are increasing in popularity).

 

 

Nanites [...] removing scar tissue

 

I hope so - I'd love to have laryngoplasty, but I don't like the idea of a massive scar sitting in front of it. Mind you, if they could do this, then I'm sure that they could do the larynx without having to cut the skin to get to it, avoiding scar tissue that results from it.

Discovered an article on Wired a while ago on this topic...

 

http://www.wired.com...utureofbreasts/

 

"All Natural: Why Breasts Are the Key to the Future of Regenerative Medicine"

 

Lol, anyway nice article about modern techniques to regrow breasts. Soon implants will be a thing of the past, and everyone can have perfect sized breasts! All men should rejoice I think haha. Of course this is only the beginning, plastic surgery is going to become less & less invasive, and because of that more popular. Imagine if you could take a pill, or have injections in certain parts of your body to change your shape. I wonder how/if they'll be able to change your bone structure.

OK so I just discovered another website (don't ask how I come across this stuff haha!)... Some of this plastic surgery is unreal. If you can already completely change the structure of someones face right now, what is it going to be like 10 years from now? Will everyone just be beautiful & look the same? Anyho, check it out...

I've never really looked into it too much. I guess good plastic surgery you don't notice, you just assume that person always looked this way. You see bad plastic surgery all the time (... just look at celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, her face is ruined), but apparently especially in Korea extensive surgery is very common - as many as 1 in 5 women have something done... 

 

Madness.

I imagine before we get medical grade nanite restructuring we will see a lot of new capabilities. They are already looking at ways to leave not visible scars on even the most invasive and radical surgeries, as well as solving some of the scar issues found in darker skin types. There is already a procedure that can turn eyes blue or green.

 

I've often wondered why transplanted tissues can't simply be gene altered to match their new host, or failing that stripped of their cells and repopulated with the new host cells. That way you could theoretically take stocky fingers and replace them with long slender fingers, or  longer limbs, cuter noses and ears, fuller lips ect.

 

Reshaping the bones is still a rather traumatic proceedure. but I can imagine the ability to custom print whole skeletal sections and populate them with living tissue which would allow for radical changes in physical form.

 

skin color changes, tissue implants. We could do a lot.


Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.

Thats a cosmetic surgery that will become very popular but i dont see this happening before the end of 30s.

 

 

 

One of the craziness we will experience is that people will start to mix animal genes or brand new genes to change color to body part or shapes.

 

Peraphs you can go on a date with a lady that has the upperbody of a human and the legs of a tiger.

 

Other people will put wings, make their skin color of flashy green or blue etc...

 

but this technology seems that wont belong to this century yet.

The only thing is that these body modifications may be reversible.

Oh yes, of course. It probably will be available before the end of the century to have wings and tails and horns and other weird shit put on your body.

I'd love functional wings. However, I'd probably just wait for mind uploading and try being a bird or something. Or I could try VR flight. I doubt surgery is the best option. Although, it will be fascinating to see what people come up with. There's a book called extras that has these sort of things in. I'll find out the author when it isn't 2 in the morning. EDIT: who needs sleep? The book is by Scott Westerfeld. It's the fourth part of a series set a couple of hundred years into the future in a dystopian future where the general populace undergo massive plastic surgery when they are 16, in order to make everyone 'pretties' but they also undergo an operation without their permission or awareness which cuts their ability to think properly. Now that I've posted this I'll probably read the whole series again. It's a great series.

You can have horns of a sort put in now (implants that are meant to be horns, anyway). Just look at this man: http://www.teamliqui...?topic_id=97908

 

Not a good look.

Less invasive surgery will probably replace the more invasive procedures that are commonplace today - demand for such procedures will fuel research into this.

The other month, a girl was saying that she wants genetic engineering so that she can glow green (as the teacher shown us a picture of a genetically engineered mouse with glowing green skin). Unfortunately, that might clash with her overuse of fake-tan outside of school. I ruined it for her and told her why this wouldn't work (genotypically, not phenotypically).

Yes, they certainly won't be made of ink.I've seen concept art of touchscreens integrated into hands, arms and other body parts. I think that in a couple of centuries time, we will be able to turn our entire body surface into a screen. Perhaps we can download tattoos from the internet or even just design them in our minds and have them appear virtually on our body, erasing them with our minds when we no longer want them.

Unless you become poor and have to rent your skin out to ad agencies to put bread on the table...


What difference does it make?
