Plastic surgery before and after
Liposuction: Away That Fat
Liposuction is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States. This process literally sucks out extra fat deposits from under a person’s skin. It is a method of body contouring and is most often used by people with troublesome fatty deposits that simply will not go away, even with proper diet and exercise.
Breast Augmentation: Bigger is Better
Breast augmentation is a type of plastic surgery that gives a woman many options in changing the size and shape of her breasts. Technology and medical procedures have improved dramatically in recent years, and this type of cosmetic surgery is far less invasive than in the past.
Abdominoplasty: Tucking in That Tummy
A tummy tuck is considered to be major cosmetic surgery. This procedure tightens a patient’s abdominal muscles and gets rid of excess skin and fat. This is a very popular plastic-surgery procedure and is performed on men and women. In this operation, the surgeon makes a long incision across the patient’s abdomen, usually from one hip bone to the other. The patient is usually under general anesthesia. The first incision has a wide V-shaped appearance.
Gastric Bypass: Extra Weight? Bypass It!
During gastric bypass surgery, the surgeon creates a small pouch in the stomach to restrict the intake of food along and creates bypasses in the small intestine and duodenum to decrease the body’s ability to absorb nutrients.
Microdermabrasion: Smoothing Out Skin Problems
Microdermabrasion is a type of cosmetic surgery that uses light to almost completely remove the outer layer of skin through abrasion. The particles left behind are then vacuumed away using a small wand-like instrument.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job): A Winner by a Nose
Today, more and more people are turning to plastic and cosmetic surgery to fix areas of their bodies they don’t like. Treatments include fuller lips; higher, more-defined cheek bones; breast reductions or enlargements; and perfect, chiseled noses. Teenagers and adults alike, whether they are famous or not, are all jumping on the plastic surgery bandwagon.
