Common Plastic Surgery Procedures

Many people all over the world decide to visit a plastic surgeon every year. They do it because they are not satisfied with a particular part of their body, and want to improve its appearance. People of all ages opt for plastic surgery as a way to enhance their beauty and increase their self-esteem.  

Breast Augmentation 

The purpose of this procedure is to increase breast size and enhance shape, usually through placing silicone or saline implants. The ultimate goal of the surgeon is to improve natural proportions of the patient’s body and create a symmetrical, aesthetically pleasant profile. Women want to have this procedure because of a variety of reasons. One of them is to have larger breasts. They also often want to correct noticeable asymmetry. Additionally, this method is perfect for women who want to restore breast fullness lost after breastfeeding and pregnancy, enhance self-image, and feel more confident in a swimsuit. 

Many women opt for transumbilical breast augmentation or TUBA. It is an excellent option as it doesn’t leave a scar on the breast. During this procedure, an incision is made in the belly button or umbilicus, and it is hidden. Unfortunately, it is a more technically challenging procedure than conventional options, and that’s why most plastic surgeons don’t perform it. If you don’t want to have scars after having breast augmentation, you should consult with one of the few surgeons who perform TUBA frequently. 

Flash recovery breast augmentation is also very popular. It allows rapid recovery thanks to using specific techniques. The precise dissection is made during the surgery, and the tissue around is treated gently, to minimize any trauma that can occur. Patients are encouraged to engage in light motion immediately after the procedure, such as walking and arm stretching exercises.  

Facelift 

If you are interested in skin tightening and looking younger, you should consider undergoing a facelift procedure. Both women and men want to have a more youthful look, and get rid of wrinkles. If you wish to avoid long healing times, and invasive surgeries, a non-surgical facelift is a perfect option. As a result, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of tighter and smoother skin, and reduced lines and wrinkles.  

Liposuction 

If you want to reshape problem areas of your body, you should consider having a liposuction. It allows the treatment of more areas in one procedure and can be performed with either general or local anesthesia. Some of the areas that can be treated include hips, buttocks, thighs, back, upper arms, waist, and abdomen. Its purpose is to slim and reshape specific body areas by removing excess fat deposits, and it results in improved body proportion and contours. Liposuction is a procedure with excellent results. However, it is important to realize that it is not a treatment for obesity, and it can’t substitute exercise and proper diet.
