Breast augmentation is America’s top plastic surgery procedure

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 21 giugno 2019

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 313k patients had undergone this surgery in 2018 – a 48% jump from 2017. However, statistics show that 29,236 patients had their breast implants removed in 2018 – up from 6% in 2017. Many women are coming forward and discussing “breast implant illness,” will this number drastically rise for 2019? Will more and more turn away from implants for fear of long-term health issues or breast implant illness? Is there an alternative to the breast implant? Many women have turned to breast implants to fix the sag, but a newer and more natural surgical alternative is on the market from the Galatea Surgical Scaffold Collection: GalaFLEX, GalaFORM 3D, and GalaSHAPE 3D products. These products help to rebuild and reinforce the tissue around the breasts to provide a more natural revival to women’s breasts. We have experts from Galatea Surgical and surgeons that are available to discuss how Galatea Surgical Scaffold Collection is changing the landscape of plastic surgery by offering their patients a product that provides strength and beauty – inside and out.

Companies commit US$1 billion to fight plastic pollution

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 26 gennaio 2019

The Alliance to End Plastic Waste, which includes chemical companies, including BASF, Dow and Mitsui Chemicals, Oil majors, including ExxonMobil, Total and Shell, and was convened by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, will fund initiatives in waste management and recycling infrastructure worldwide, and will back innovative technologies that could offer solutions to the large and growing issue of plastic pollution.
“I think everyone agrees that plastic waste does not belong in the ocean or the environment. This demands swift action and leadership from all of us,” David Taylor, president and CEO of Proctor & Gamble, who chairs the AEPW, said at the initiative’s launch in London.
Last year, researchers at the University of California in Santa Barbara found that of the more than 8 billion tonnes of plastic that has been produced since large-scale production began in the 1950s, less than 10 per cent has been recycled, with the rest ending up in landfills or dumped into oceans and other ecosystems.The impact on those ecosystems has been severe. A 2016 report from the World Economic Forum estimated that at current rates, the total weight of marine plastic will be greater than that of the fish in the oceans. Microplastics—invisible fragments of plastic waste—have been detected in many marine species, and are now in the human food chain.The AEPW announced that it would invest in an incubator network, run by Circulate Capital, which will help to develop innovative technologies and business models to prevent plastic waste, and would support Renew Oceans, an India-based organisation that aims to divert plastic waste from rivers.As 60 per cent of ocean plastics come from just five countries in Asia, much of the alliance’s work will focus on the region.The alliance’s members said that they hope to make an economic case, as well as an environmental one.“Most people don’t know that plastic waste has value. The key is unlocking that value and bringing it back to a useful form again,” said Bob Patel, CEO of LyondellBasell, one of the world’s largest plastic producers and the vice-chairman of the initiative, speaking at the AEPW’s launch.“By tackling plastic waste we can also impact communities in a very positive way, and people’s lives in a positive way. It can be a means of commerce in different parts of the world. But what it will take is collaboration, not only within the value chain… but also governments and other stakeholder groups.” The initiative’s launch attracted criticism from some NGOs, including the Netherlands-based Recycling Netwerk, which noted that several of the AEPW’s members are still investing billions of dollars in building substantial new plastic production facilities, and accused the participants of “greenwashing.”“Without tackling the production of plastic at its source, all clean-up efforts will be in vain,” Rob Buurman, Recycling Netwerk’s director, said.
