Holistic aproach

 
 

Holistic aesthetic surgery is a very modern and avant-garde approach that takes into consideration the individual as a whole. While traditional surgery is limited to the physical or mechanical aspects of surgical procedures, the holistic approach personalises the preparation of organs, tissues, and the patient as a unique and whole being, with a view to optimising his or her health, well-being, and the quality of the final results.

Hence, according to the concept of holistic medicine, less invasive methods of treatment are used, such as micronutrition, homotoxicology, phytotherapy, Ayurvedic medicine, energy medicine, combining the best of conventional and alternative approaches.

This approach is based on the uniqueness and wholeness of the individual, taking into account the importance of nutritional, physical, psychic and emotional balance and his or her capacity to cope with stress.  The surgical procedure is stressful for the organism, not only on an emotional level, but also physically; the healing process is long and complex, involving a considerable amount of energy and cell activity. It is therefore logical to prepare the body to face the impact of surgery. In this way, recovery is quick; the results are excellent and more long-lasting.

The holistic approach is not only global. It also allows highly personalised care and treatment, taking into consideration the peculiarities of each individual, their morphology, and their desire to improve their physical appearance within the context of personal growth.  The approach should be multidisciplinary, as making improvements to form and beauty involves both internal and external aspects.  Once this has been attained, it is then possible to choose less invasive surgical procedures.

 

Modern and avant-garde surgical practices that respect the patient’s wholeness and uniqueness. 
 

Aesthetic surgery as part of integrative medicine:

 
  • Integrative medicine chooses the best options from both conventional and alternative medicines in order to more effectively stimulate and support healing. It may combine classic allopathy (chemical pharmacology) and surgery with different therapeutic concepts to treat pathologies and optimise results. 
  • Integrative medicine is the natural segue of a combination of different systems of treatments, cultures, and ideas, both ancient and modern. It primarily opts for methods that respect the patient's physiology, with a view to minimising iatrogenic effects in health care. It seeks a truly humanistic medicine that is both preventive and curative, respectful of the individual in his or her specificity, calling on the patient to assume a proactive and self-responsible attitude. It considers the patient as a unique and whole being in social, psychological, and spiritual dimensions, as well as on biological and physical levels.

MEDICINE OF THE FUTURE: PREDICTIVE, PREVENTIVE, PERSONALISED, AND PARTICIPATIVE.

Functional and preventive diagnostics allow the measurement of pertinent biological parameters, making it possible to prevent a large number of degenerative pathologies, reduce the effects of aging, and optimise health. These tests are useful to patients with previously known risk factors, resulting in the correction of potential problems at the source. The result is an integrative therapeutic strategy based on an orderly and motivated selection of treatment or combinations of treatments. Integrative medicine is already expanding in the USA, where more than thirty medical schools teach integrative medicine, and the movement is gaining momentum in Europe as well. In France it is practised by eminent doctors like Professor Luc Montagniér (2008 winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine) and Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, author of a number of best-selling books.
 
Form and beauty are treated both inside and out. A global approach is not limited to treating just one organ or one tissue, but takes into consideration the body as a whole and aims to maintain or re-establish balanced function.
 
Physical and mental well-being, healthy nutrition, a sound digestive system, as well as internal and external stress management, all influence physical beauty.
 
The success of any intervention depends on these factors. To attain the best pre-operative conditions possible, we must act in a logical order: cleansing-detoxification, supplying nutrients, and boosting metabolism.
 
Before a surgical procedure, in order to optimise the healing process - for instance a sufficient collagen synthesis - it is necessary to ensure that all the essential elements for its synthesis (vitamins, mineral, and proteins…) are available and that the skin is not compromised by toxins or pollutants.
 
Detoxification eliminates xenobiotics and metabolic wastes that are toxic for the organism. This can be done on a general level or for a specific organ or tissue.
 
The supply of nutrients serves to provide the organism with the essential elements it needs to function properly through food and micronutrition. Local methods of administration can be used: topical, mesotherapy, injections, etc.
 
Boosting metabolic functions means acting on the organs or tissues or systems with a specific function: skin repair, hepatobiliary function, or the digestive, immune, circulatory, and neurological systems.
 
By selecting and applying integrative medicine to the well-being and beauty of patients, we can perform new and personalised procedures to optimise body image and form.
