In the quest for an improved physical appearance, many people choose plastic surgery. It is an effective way to achieve long-lasting results. Here are some of the most popular plastic surgery options available today:
Tummy tuck or Abdominoplasty
Tummy tuck is a surgical procedure to remove excess fat and skin from the middle and lower abdomen. The abdominal muscles can also be tightened with a tummy tuck. The procedure can dramatically reduce the protruding abdomen. This surgery is especially beneficial for women who have had several pregnancies or a large weight loss. The recovery period for the surgery is usually several weeks.
A body lift is a cosmetic surgery performed to correct excess loose, sagging skin and irregular contours of the abdominal area, buttocks, thighs and upper arms. This is a procedure that is usually performed in patients who have lost a large amount of weight and are seeking to improve the resultant loose skin.
Nose Job or Rhinoplasty
A rhinoplasty is a popular plastic surgery procedure used for improving the shape of the nose. Airway obstruction may also be addressed with a rhinoplasty to improve breathing. If significant airway problems exist, this procedure may be covered by insurance. It is performed as an outpatient procedure.
Factors like pregnancy, breast feeding, and weight loss may result in sagging of a woman’s breast. A breast lift (also known as a mastopexy) is a surgical procedure that restores a perkier shape to sagging breasts. It can also reduce the size of the areolae. In patients who have excessively large, heavy breasts, breast tissue may be removed (breast reduction) during the surgery to create a smaller cup size. This can result in less strain through the neck and shoulders. Breast reduction is considered as a reconstructive procedure and may be covered by insurance.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that helps in removing unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. The most common areas addressed are the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. The procedure is generally performed through small puncture incisions hidden within natural lines and folds in the skin.
