Three Common Cosmetic Surgery Procedures

Each day one has to decide how they want to look. People put on fashionable clothes, apply makeup, accessorize their look with jewelry and brush their hair the way they like in an attempt to look beautiful. While doing all this can greatly improve a person’s looks and image, there are other situations that can’t be solved without a surgical intervention. This is when people consider undergoing cosmetic surgery to improve their looks.

There are many cosmetic surgery procedures that are performed by plastic surgeons, the three most common among these are liposuction, facelift and breast augmentation.

The most common of all cosmetic procedures is breast augmentation. This is a procedure that provides a way to drastically change a person’s breast shape and/or size. Changing a lady’s breast size can greatly improve her self-esteem, confidence and attractiveness. During a breast augmentation procedure, the surgeon usually makes an incision and then places gel or saline implants. The incision is then closed using dissolving stitches.

Another common cosmetic surgery procedure is Liposuction. This procedure is performed to remove fat for parts of the body. Liposuction offers a way for people who have tried to lose body fat to achieve their goal with immediately results. For one to undergo this procedure, they are required to at least be within a certain percentage of their ideal weight. The surgeon always makes a small incision on the skin and puts a small tube. He/she then uses ultrasound energy to suction fat from the area. The incision is usually very easy to conceal and rarely leaves a scar when it heals properly.



The third cosmetic surgery procedure is the facelift also known as facial rejuvenation surgery. This is a procedure done to restore a person’s face to a youthful look; it’s like chipping away a few years of your age. The procedure does not only consist of a single surgery, but also a few other restorative techniques. A patient can choose to undergo a modified or full facelift depending on what their desired end result is. The facial rejuvenation procedure can involve the jaw area, eyebrows, neck or cheeks.

One should always take their time when choosing the right cosmetic surgeon to ensure that they take every single aspect in to consideration. This way, they can be assured that their surgery will yield great results and they will even recovery better.
