6 Common Types of Plastic Surgeries

Before you opt for plastic surgery, it is important that you weigh all the options. Your plastic surgeon will recommend the best surgery personalized to your cosmetic needs. Here are common types of plastic surgeries in the world.

1. Breast augmentation

It is a type of plastic surgery where the woman’s breasts get an enlargement. Breasts are enlarged using silicone-filled implants or saline. Women who undergo breast augmentation require a few days of recovery. Besides, medics recommend that women who undergo this procedure should avoid any physical contact with the breasts for about three or four weeks.

2. Rhinoplasty

It is popularly known as a nose job. Rhinoplasty is a type of plastic surgery that entails reshaping of the nose to make it small or bigger than its standard size. The surgery is also done to narrow the span of your nostrils or to change the angle between the upper lip and the nose. It is common among women and men. Rhinoplasty is used to correct congenital disabilities, fix problems resulting from an injury, change the bridge shape, and enhance breathing problems. You require about a week to recover though it is advisable to avoid bumping noses or getting them sunburned for close to eight weeks. Plastic surgeons charge different fees for this procedure.

3. Liposuction

It entails removing fat deposits using a tube that is inserted beneath your skin. The tube then sucks the fat using a vacuum-like device. The plastic surgery is carried out on hips, abdomen, upper arms, buttocks, and thighs. Liposuction is common in women. The recovery period for this procedure ranges from one to four weeks. However, it may take up to six months for all the swelling to go down.

4. Hair transplantation

It is also known as hair restoration surgery. Hair transplantation is carried out to enhance the appearance of baldness. With this procedure, hair is moved from an area of thick growth to the bald area. Over a thousand hairs can be removed in a single session, and some people require more than a session depending on the state of badness. After the procedure, your hair growth becomes successful.

5. Tummy tuck

Also known as abdominoplasty, tummy tuck enhances the shape of your abdomen. Tummy tucks are used to get rid of excess skin and fat and restore separated and weakened muscles in the abdomen with the objective of improving the profile. However, tummy tucks don’t get rid of stretch marks. They only enhance the appearance of sagging and loose skin. Tummy tuck results are permanent, but you need to maintain a proper weight to keep the results. The fees charged by Plastic surgeons vary depending on the patient.

6. Eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery entails the removal of bags below the eyes and correcting drooping upper eyelids through the removal of skin, extra fat, and muscle. It is common in women. Patients require a week or ten days to recover. However, if you wear contacts, you require two weeks or more before you wear the corrective lenses. However, the procedure does not improve your sight. It just makes your eyes look better than before.
