The American Society of Plastic Surgeons is aware that more people want to have plastic surgery. It seems that men are also contributing to the increasing demand for these procedures. Getting the procedures for enhancing your appearance has its advantages. Here are the top five common plastic surgery procedures if you are thinking about some physical enhancement.
Another name for this procedure is eyelid reshaping surgery. Aging causes the sagging of the skin over the eyes. This can impair your vision. It can also make you look older. The lower eyelids can be a problem as well. They can wrinkle and puff up over the years.
Blepharoplasty can lift the eyelids or remove the excess skin over the eyes. It can remove the eyebags under them. After the procedure, you can start going out after 10 to 14 days. It may take weeks or months before the swelling goes down.
Studies show that most people resort to liposuction to achieve a slimmer shape. This procedure suctions fat from specific parts of the body. There are many types of liposuction. The most popular type is tumescent liposuction. It involves injecting a numbing area and saline into the target areas.
The doctor will suction these liquids with the dissolved fat using a small cannula. There could be some water retention for a short while, but this will disappear after a few days. Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction involves releasing ultrasonic energy through the cannula. This energy melts fat. Suctioning the melted fat out of the body will follow. Using ultrasonic energy can have some risks, like burns. You can talk to your doctor about power-assisted, suction-assisted, laser, and air-assisted liposuction.
Most patients know this procedure as a lower body lift or a tummy tuck. Abdominoplasty removes extra skin from your abdomen and then tightens the remaining skin. People who get this procedure lose a significant amount of weight after bariatric surgery or giving birth. After this procedure, it may take two to three weeks before you can get back to normal activities. It is also advisable to limit physical activities for quicker healing.
You may know this plastic surgery as a facelift. This allows the sagging skin and wrinkles to go away. The procedure tightens your facial skin. This will make you look younger because the tightening reduces sagging and smoothens the deep lines.
A forehead lift can go with a facelift. This surgery pulls the forehead skin tighter. The aim is to smooth out creases and make you look younger.
This type of plastic surgery may replace a lost breast, balance out breast sizes, or enlarge both breasts. You can talk to your doctor about what breast implant will suit you the most. It may take one to two weeks before you can get back to your normal activities. More active patients may need a longer recovery period.
