There’s fate, and then there’s science. But sometimes — just sometimes — the two will join in an unholy union, spawning a monster bearing the worst qualities of both. And that is where cosmetic, surgical palm line adjustment comes in. Because occasionally destiny needs a little shove in the right direction. With a scalpel.
Laparoscopic surgery lets surgeons use tiny “keyhole” incisions and micro-sized 3D cameras to operate on internal organs without leaving big, slow-healing scars. It’s already considered a revolutionary procedure, and now Sony is introducing a 3D helmet display that advances the tech even further. It’s like Oculus Rift for your appendectomy.
Our eyeballs are some of our more delicate organs, and the mere thought of them having to be sliced open for surgery is unsettling. So researchers at the Multi-Scale Robotics Lab at ETH Zurich have created a magnetically-guided microbot, barely larger than a few human hairs, that can be embedded in the eye and externally controlled to perform delicate surgery without any part of the patient having to be sliced open.
High-fidelity motion control is awesome, but it’s not quite essential for most of us. For surgeons though, a motion-controlled interface like this one could be super useful.
Eternal youth doesn’t come cheap. No one knows this better than a Los Angeles woman who underwent a non-FDA approved cosmetic eye surgery using stem cells. Unwanted side effects include: pain, a clicking sound in her eyelid “like a tiny castanet snapping shut” and spontaneous bone growth in the surrounding flesh. Gross.
What you’re looking at isn’t three different people. No, it’s the progress made by a single patient, Lieutenant William M Spreckley, who was admitted to Dr Harold Gillies’ care in January 1917 with a “gunshot wound nose”. Gillies is considered the father of modern plastic surgery — and it’s not hard to see why.
