Cosmetic surgery can help people who want to change their appearance in some way, but these procedures can also be a solution for those who are looking to improve their health. Let’s take a look at the most popular plastic surgery procedures.
Also called lipoplasty. The procedure is done by injecting the areas with saline solution (Tumescent Liposuction). This fills and enlarges the fat cells. Like an over inflated balloon, this makes it easier to break the fat cells apart and remove the more liquid fat. The JW Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge uses the new Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL). This technique uses a cannula that has hundreds of oscillations to more gently and safety remove the fat and contour the areas. The new technique is called High Definition Liposuction.
One of the most popular plastic surgery procedures involves increasing breast size (augmentation mammoplasty). This involves making an incision either behind the areola (periareolar) or between the chest wall and back of the breast (inframammary) to insert implants.
Unwanted fat can also be transplanted from other parts of the body into the breasts (fat transfer augmentation). Breast augmentation is chosen to increase confidence and also to make breasts more symmetrical.
Cosmetic procedures involving the nose are done to improve its look, as well as to improve facial balance. Parts of the nose may be reshaped or the size of the entire nose reduced. Open and closed are the two main types of rhinoplasty.
In addition to choosing it to improve appearance, rhinoplasty is also chosen to improve breathing problems or correct birth defects or trauma to the nose.
The buttock lift is one of the most common plastic surgery for males and females, chosen to correct flat or sagging buttocks. Also known as the Brazilian butt lift, the procedure involves transferring unwanted fat from specific areas via liposuction and injecting it into the buttocks. The procedure makes buttocks fuller and higher.
Surgery to reshape the eyelids, called blepharoplasty, can correct sagging skin on the upper eyelids as well as wrinkles or puffiness under the eyes. This elective cosmetic surgery is chosen to reduce the signs of aging as well as to improve vision when obstructed by hanging skin.
Upper blepharoplasty is completed by making an incision along the lash line and then trimming away fat and tissue. Lower blepharoplasty involves making an incision under the lash line and then removing fatty tissue before lifting the skin.
The full facelift may be the most popular plastic surgery. Chosen by those wanting a younger look, a facelift involves stretching and tightening facial muscles. During the procedure, other techniques can also be applied. These include neck reduction and eyelid lift. Injectables and fillers may also be used to further enhance appearance.
