NJ & NY Plastic Surgeon Predicts Top Procedures for 2014

Go-to Media Expert and Popular Rhinoplasty Surgeon, Dr. Ramtin Kassir M.D., F.A.C.S., Offers His Predictions for What Will Be the Top Cosmetic Procedures of 2014

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 01/16/14 -- Dr. Ramtin Kassir is a triple board certified plastic surgeon who has been featured on television shows such as The Doctors, TODAY Show, Entertainment Tonight, FOX and The Real Housewives of New Jersey. After noticing shifts in the way his patients obtain information and their sources of influence, the go-to plastic surgeon and media expert is predicting the top procedures for 2014.

With Mona Lisa Cosmetic Surgery Centers in New Jersey and on Park Ave. in NYC, Dr. Kassir has become a sought after plastic surgeon in the tri-state area.

"New technology that has entered into the market will see an all-time high in patient awareness and demand. How my patients are becoming aware of procedures as well as their sources of influence are driving my predictions for 2014," says Dr. Kassir.

Celebrity Rhinoplasty
2013 saw a 31% increase in requests for surgery as a result of social media photo sharing. "Last year I experienced a 700% increase in patients seeking cosmetic procedures from social media," says Dr. Kassir. Of the procedures requested as a result of social media influence, rhinoplasty topped the list. Due to this rising trend, Dr. Kassir predicts Celebrity Rhinoplasty procedures will see a rise in popularity in 2014. Popular noses in Hollywood will become new models for those seeking a new nose.

Non-surgical Facelifts
As advances in plastic surgery are made, procedures are becoming less invasive and non-surgical alternatives are now available. Alongside social media's influence for Rhinoplasty, 'before and after' photos have increased the demand for the Facelift procedure.

Procedures such as Dr. Kassir's signature non-surgical facelift procedure (the K-lift®) and FDA-approved non-surgical skin tightening treatments such as Ultherapy are predicted to surge this year. "My patients are beginning to learn more about Ultherapy from seeing it featured on shows such as The Doctors and TODAY Show. They are requesting it by name and are referring their friends and family after seeing the natural and noticeable results," says Dr. Kassir.

Non-surgical Fat Reduction
The cosmetic injectable BOTOX has steadily remained the number one most requested non-surgical cosmetic treatment. In recent years, additional non-surgical procedures have entered the market-for skin tightening, cellulite and fat reduction. FDA-approved in 2010, CoolSculpting for fat reduction is quickly becoming the most sought after option for an alternative to the liposuction procedure.

"With a jumpstart from weight loss resolutions during the month of January, followed by wanting to get in shape for the warmer months, I predict CoolSculpting will become the hottest procedure this year," says Dr. Kassir.

CoolSculpting's affective and irresistible taglines include: "If you can squeeze it, you can freeze it" and "Transform your body without surgery or downtime".

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds.
