Cosmetic Procedures

General Purpose:

Many people at some point in their life decide to pursue a cosmetic procedure. For some, it is a choice made out of a desire to improve their appearance. For others, it may be perceived as a means of improving their self-esteem. Others may elect to undergo a cosmetic procedure out of necessity, following an injury that leads to disfigurement.

Fortunately, there are a wide variety of cosmetic procedures available that can help improve the appearance of almost any part of the body.

Examples include liposuction, implants (facial, breasts, calves, buttocks), treatments for spider veins, hair replacement procedures, hair removal procedures, breast reduction procedures, nose surgery, body contouring surgery, and tummy tucks, just to name a few. Collectively, these procedures are often referred to as “plastic surgery.”

Research related to many different aspects of plastic surgery is currently ongoing. In addition to investigating more advanced and less-invasive techniques, scientists are also conducting research to learn how to minimize the side effects of various surgical interventions, as well as evaluating the psychological impact such procedures have on those who receive them.

What Will A Cosmetic Procedures Clinical Trial Be Like? 

Due to the wide variety of cosmetic procedures available, clinical trials will likely differ substantially with regard to the procedures involved, the information they obtain from participants, and their overall objective. Provided below is a list of common procedures, tests, and assessments that may be incorporated into such clinical trials, but please note that studies are likely to differ across a wide variety of aspects:

  • Detailed physical examination
  • Photographs to document before-and-after progress of a particular procedure Topical prescription medications that contain derivatives of vitamin A
  • Surgical procedures involving either local (site-specific) or general anesthesia
  • You may be asked to complete a questionnaire to determine how much of an impact your cosmetic procedure has on your emotional-well being, self-confidence, and self-esteem.
  • Dietary interventions
  • Exercise interventions

Typical Cosmetic Procedure Clinical Trial Protocol:

Specific examples of clinical trials for various cosmetic procedures might include the following:

  • A study designed to evaluate the quality of life and body image of women who undergo thighplasty (a surgical procedure to improve the contour of the thighs and buttocks) following bariatric surgery for obesity.
  • A study designed to determine the long-term health effects of breast augmentation using silicone gel breast implants.
  • A study to determine the safety and efficacy of a new surgical approach to performing a tummy tuck procedure. Men and women undergoing this procedure will be randomly assigned to receive the surgery using the standard technique, or to receive the new surgical approach.
  • A study designed to compare the effectiveness of two separate pain medications in burn patients undergoing skin-graft surgery.

 TRIAL ELIGIBILITY AND MEDICAL INFORMATION NEEDED:

The type of clinical trial you may be eligible for often depends on many factors. Therefore, it is important to know as many details as possible with regard to your specific circumstances when searching for clinical trials.  Examples of information you may want to have on hand include the following:

  • The type of cosmetic procedure you are interested in
  • Your prior and current diagnoses of any health conditions or diseases
  • Your current medications (including vitamins, minerals, and other dietary supplements)
