Surgeries refer to medical procedures originally done to correct body structures that were affected by disease, genetics and accidents. Today surgeries can also be associated to plastic surgeries and cosmetic surgeries. These are surgeries that were not known before but have suddenly become popular.
While plastic surgery can still be considered a medical procedure because it can correct body parts damaged by disease and accidents, this is not the same all the time for cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgeries are procedures conducted to reshape normal body structures to enhance overall physical appearance. From the name itself, these are procedures to enhance beauty and physical appearance. The common examples of cosmetic surgery include tummy tuck, breast augmentation, liposuction and nose lift.
Liposuction – this is also known as suction assisted lipectomy (SAL) which is usually done to remove unwanted fat in the different parts of the body. It is considered the most popular form of cosmetic surgery particularly in the US. It is popular because the results can be seen at once and is very effective. Aside from that, it is a safe, affordable and effective way of losing body fat. Instead of spending long hours of diet and exercise, people would just go to the surgery clinic to undergo liposuction.
Tummy tuck – is known also as abdominoplasty and is the next popular cosmetic surgery after liposuction. When a person increases weight, there is a big possibility that the skin will stretch to accommodate excess fasts and muscles. By the time he loses weight again, the skin would become saggy and not pleasing to lock out. Using the procedure, the excess and the stretched skinned are removed to give the body a flat and toned look. Unlike liposuction which can be applied on different parts of the body, the tummy tuck is focused on the abdomen area.
Breast augmentation – after a masectormy, patients usually undergo breast augmentation. This procedure involves the insertion of breast implants where the implants can be of different materials. Some of the common materials for the implant included silicon and plastic bag that is filled with water. Once the procedure is done, breasts are expected to be firm, tight and good-looking.
Nose lift – this often referred to as rhinoplasty. This is a procedure on the nose conducted to enhance its shape. The purpose of the nose lift procedure can differ from one person to another. One person may want to remove excess nose bone to correct the shape while there are those that want their nose to be straight and good-looking.
Cosmetic surgeries are usually fast, affordable and the results can be seen at once. The nose lift does not heal at once. Cosmetic surgeries have also no known negative effects. This is the main reason why people continue to try and undergo cosmetic surgeries.
