Plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery, aesthetic surgery – this specialty has many names. Plastic surgery can help people who feel that their appearance impairs their quality of life. Thanks to the fact that people have become more knowledgeable and methods have been improved, plastic surgery has become more and more available. During the last years, the most popular services have been breast operations, eyelid surgery, abdominoplasty, and different anti-wrinkle injections. Earlier, it was usual to consult a plastic surgeon after the changes had already occurred. However, a new trend is so-called preventive plastic surgery – an aesthetic problem is solved before it becomes serious. No doubt that this approach guarantees a better result and, as a bonus, is less expensive. Also, many women decide to invest in their body after giving birth and repair the damages to the body related to child-bearing. The following are the most common plastic surgery services:
Breast augmentation: the operation is performed under general anesthesia and usually lasts an hour or two. During the consultation with the surgeon, an implant with a suitable size and shape is selected to achieve the most natural and beautiful result. Modern silicone implants have undergone a revolutionary development and their safety and quality are guaranteed.
Breast reduction: if the breasts are unproportionately large and cause uncomfort or even health problems, breast reduction operation can be a solution.
Breast lift: depending on the desired result, the breasts are only lifted or an implant is also installed at the same time.
Abdominoplasty: when the abdominal skin has become loose and sagged after pregnancy or big weight loss, removal of excessive skin and fat tissue could be a solution.
Liposuction: this procedure enables to remove excessive fat tissue from different body regions when noninvasive methods (diet and physical activity) are not effective.
Rhinoplasty: one of the most common cosmetic face surgeries which aims to modify the shape of the nose. Reasons for this surgery include hooked nose, too large or long nose, nose tip with unsatisfactory appearance or deviated nose. To correct the aesthetic appearance of the nose, the size, shape and position of the cartilage and bones of the nose are modified.
Otoplasty: this surgery can effectively help those who are worried about the position and shape of their ears (protruding ears, for example).
Eyelid surgery: it is inevitable that when we get older, our face skin becomes looser and “bags” form under the eyes. Drooping eyelids may even interfere with normal vision. One solution is to lift the eyelids. During this surgery, excessive fat tissue and skin is removed from the eyelids. Facelift and necklift are similar procedures. During these operations, excessive loose skin is removed and subcutaneous tissues are tightened in the problematic region.
Hair transplantation: this procedure can help in case of baldness (alopecia). Hair follicles taken from a “donor” site are relocated to a bald site.
Filler injections: this is one possibility to stop aging and maintain a youthful look. Filler injections enable to decrease wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, and restore the shape and fullness of the lips. Filler injections can be combined with botox injections to achieve an even better result.
