1. Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery that can increase the size of your breasts. It can also restore lost volume after weight loss or pregnancy, enhance the shape of your breasts and improve natural breast asymmetry.
The procedure is usually performed in an outpatient surgical clinic or hospital. A surgeon will insert an implant into a pocket under your chest muscle or behind the breast tissue.
Breast implants are either filled with sterile salt water (saline) or a material called silicone. Each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Liposuction is a procedure that helps remove stubborn pockets of fat and refine your body shape. Typically, liposuction is used to improve the appearance of specific areas of your body, such as the belly or arms.
To perform the surgery, your plastic surgeon will make small incisions to access the fatty tissue in these areas. Then, they will insert a cannula that’s attached to a suction device into the fatty tissue.
There are many types of liposuction techniques. Some use ultrasound energy to break up the fatty tissue and help with the removal of fat. Others, such as power-assisted liposuction (PAL), move the cannula in a rapid back-and-forth motion to dislodge more fat.
Bruising, swelling and pain are common after a liposuction procedure, but these can usually be controlled. Patients may also have fluid buildup in the treated area called a seroma.
3. Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can remove excess skin from the upper eyelids and contour fat pads on the lower lids. This procedure can correct drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes, which make you look tired or older than you really are.
Before eyelid surgery, a consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon is recommended to determine the best type of procedure and achieve your desired results. The surgeon will also review your medical history, discuss risks and answer any questions you may have.
Many patients report little to no pain after surgery, and most find the recovery period relatively quick and easy. Most swelling and bruising subsides within 10-14 days. The doctor will prescribe ointment and recommend bed rest and head elevation to help relieve discomfort.
If you’re concerned about the appearance of your face, a facelift can be an effective way to rejuvenate the facial area. The procedure can be done to smooth wrinkles, reduce jowls, and tighten the skin and tissue.
A facelift can be performed on both men and women, but is most often used to treat patients in their mid-to-late 40s and 50s. The procedure can help you look younger and more vibrant, and is typically less invasive than a breast lift or liposuction.
The facelift is a surgical procedure that involves lifting and tightening the skin, tissues, and underlying muscle of the face and neck. The procedure can also remove fat and excess skin.
The facelift is a complex surgical procedure that requires extensive healing time, and recovery can vary slightly for each patient. However, most facelift patients are able to return to normal activities in about 2 weeks.
Rhinoplasty (RIE-no-plas-tee) is a plastic surgery procedure that changes the shape and size of your nose. This can be for cosmetic reasons or functional purposes, such as improving breathing.
Some people have rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of their nose, while others undergo functional rhinoplasty to restore nasal function after disease, cancer treatments or traumatic injuries. The procedure can also correct congenital defects or a deviated septum.
Before deciding to have rhinoplasty, it’s important to discuss your goals with your plastic surgeon. This can help ensure that the surgery will produce the desired results.
