Aesthetic surgery is a popular way to improve one's appearance and enhance self-confidence. There are many different types of aesthetic surgery, each with its own unique benefits and risks. The most common types of aesthetic surgery include breast augmentation, liposuction, nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, abdominoplasty, facelift, hair transplant surgery, and rhinoplasty. Breast augmentation is a procedure that increases the size or changes the shape of the breasts.
This procedure is also known as “breast implant surgery” and is not the same as breast lifts or breast reduction. Facelifts are used to repair sagging, loose, saggy, or wrinkled skin on the face. During this procedure, facial tissues are lifted, excess skin is removed, and skin over the repositioned contours is replaced. Neck lifts are often performed in conjunction with facelifts.
Other procedures that are often performed in conjunction with facelifts include nose reshaping, forehead lifts, or eyelid surgery. Hair transplant surgery is a procedure used to improve the appearance of baldness. In this procedure, hair is moved from a thick growth area to a bald area. Rhinoplasty refers to any surgery that repairs or remodels the nose. Some people choose rhinoplasty for aesthetic reasons while others may have a medical reason such as difficulty breathing or birth defects.
The effects of rhinoplasty tend to last around 6 months before a second procedure is needed to restore shape and volume. Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as “tummy tuck”, is used to improve the shape of the abdomen. This procedure removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen while tightening the abdominal muscles. When considering any type of aesthetic surgery it is important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon who can provide information about the risks and benefits associated with each procedure. It is also important to discuss any medical conditions or medications that may affect the outcome of the surgery.
