Elective Cosmetic Surgery
In today's world, people are into self-awareness on the emotional level and self-help in the physical. This often includes elective cosmetic surgery. Each year techniques become better and safer, with revolutionary results.
Cosmetic surgery is a very popular avenue for personal enhancement at this time.
Types of Surgery
Abdominoplasty (or "tummy tuck"): reshaping and firming of the abdomen
Blepharoplasty (or "eyelid surgery"): Reshaping of the eyelids or the application of permanent eyeliner, including Asian blepharoplasty
Botox - fills in wrinkles
Augmentation Mammaplasty - breast enlargemen: Augmentation of the breasts. This can involve either saline or silicone gel prosthetics.
Buttock Augmentation (or "butt augmentation" or "butt implants"): Enhancement of the buttocks. This procedure can be performed by using silicone implants or fat grafting and transfer from other areas of the body.
Chemical peel: Removal of acne scars and sagging skin - not technically surgery and can be performed by a cosmetologist. Chemical peels commonly involve Phenol, TCA, or Glycolic acid as the active agent. Phenol peels, while the most effective, require cardiac monitoring and require longer recovery periods, thus diminishing their current popularity.
Mastopexy - Raising and reducing sagging breasts
Labiaplasty - Surgical reduction and reshaping of the labia
Rhinoplasty - Reshaping of the nose
Otoplasty (or ear surgery): Reshaping of the ear
Rhytidectomy (or "face lift"): Removal of wrinkles and signs of aging from the face
Suction-Assisted Lipectomy or liposuction: Removal of fat from the body
Chin augmentation: Augmentation of the chin with an implant (e.g. silicone) or by sliding genioplasty of the jawbone.
Collagen, fat, and other tissue filler injections - hyaluronic acid
Mesotherapy : An alternative to liposuction where fluids are injected to break down and dissolve the fat
Each year, batter and less painful techinques are being implemented.
