Today, there are plastic surgery procedures that cover pretty much every part of the body. Rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, facelifts, tummy tucks, and blepharoplasty are just a few types of plastic surgery procedures being performed by today’s top board-certified plastic surgeons. Whether being performed for reconstructive reasons or just to enhance beauty, plastic surgery procedures can give a great boost of confidence.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular types of plastic surgery procedures and is used to correct a variety of nose conditions. Whether it’s an over-sized nose, a hump on the bridge, a narrow or wide span of the nostrils, or an undesirable shape of the nasal tip, rhinoplasty can help. In order to complement other facial features, both frontal and profile views of the nose are corrected to provide a balance of proportions. Rhinoplasty is also effective in correcting breathing problems caused by narrow or obstructed nostrils.
Another one of the more popular plastic surgery procedures is breast augmentation. Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure performed to enhance the size or shape of the breasts. Both women and men seek the breast augmentation plastic surgery procedure. Women who are unhappy with the size of their breasts, or unevenness of their breasts are most likely to have the plastic surgery procedure performed. Men with too much testosterone can suffer from Gynecomastia, commonly called “bitch tits”? because of their similar appearance to that of a pregnant dog, can have breast augmentation surgery to correct it.
Abdominal liposuction is one of the most frequently performed plastic surgery procedures. Abdominal liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure for re-contouring the belly by permanently removing fat deposits from the abdomen. Liposuction is a last resort to remove fat that is often resistant to diet and exercise. Some people tend to lose the overall weight, but don’t see a flatter abdomen. The overall proportions of the body may be unbalanced, or the abdomen may simply have retained areas of fatty tissue causing it to maintain the rounded shape. In these cases, the liposuction plastic surgery procedure can successfully remove excess fat in the abdomen for a flatter abdomen and more slender, balanced shape.
Another type of plastic surgery procedure is blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure to remove fat, usually along with excess skin and muscle, from the upper and lower eyelids that may form with age. Heredity and sun damage can accelerate these changes. Upper lid blepharoplasty can improve two common problem areas: excess skin on the upper eyelid itself, and puffiness in the inner corner and middle of the upper eyelid caused by pushing forward of fat. This plastic surgery procedure is frequently done at the same time as other procedures, such as a lower eyelid blepharoplasty, facelift, or forehead lift and can be combined with laser or chemical resurfacing to smooth skin wrinkles. Almost no plastic surgery is covered by insurance, but when drooping of the upper lids interferes with vision, the procedure may be partially or fully covered by insurance.
Aging causes our facial skin to loosen and wrinkle, and the muscles of the neck may weaken as well, causing sagging. Sun exposure, weight fluctuations, and heredity can all cause the loss of elasticity in the skin. A facelift can address these problems by firming and tightening the skin of the face and neck all in one step. This plastic surgery procedure is most effective for the lower face including the jowls and neck. Facelifts are usually performed along with other plastic surgery procedures such as upper eyelid or lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Collagen or botox injections can also be added to improve deep creases in the forehead or frown lines between your eyebrows.
The texture of the skin will not be affected by a facelift, as commonly thought. Acne scars, age spots, fine lines, and smoker’s creases will soon return to their original texture, no matter how tight the skin is pulled. Skin treatments such as laser resurfacing or chemical resurfacing can be used in combination with a facelift to improve the texture of the skins and smooth skin wrinkles.
With all of the plastic surgery procedures mentioned above, and the many more available, you can address almost any aesthetic issues that concern you. Consult with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon to decide which type or types of plastic surgery procedures can benefit you and provide that youthful glow you desire.
