According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, about 16 million cosmetic surgeries are performed each year. Although women account for 92%, there are also many men who pursue plastic surgery as well. People seek out plastic surgery for many reasons. Let’s look at some of the most common types of plastic surgery you may be interested in pursuing yourself.
Liposuction has continued to be a popular form of plastic surgery for many years. This procedure involves the surgical suction of fat from parts of the body. Usually, the fat is removed from the thighs or belly. This procedure is used to create a slimmer silhouette. There are different types of liposuction available to help patients reach their particular needs. Liposuction is ideal for those who are struggling to lose weight in certain areas of their body no matter how much they diet or exercise.
2. Chin Implants
Chin implants are also a popular form of plastic surgery used to change the size or shape of the chin. There are hundreds of these procedures done in America each year. This type of surgery can be used in many different ways: to enhance the jawline, create a stronger chin, and more.
A rhinoplasty is also more commonly known as a nose job. This type of plastic surgery is used to reshape the nose. It is often sought in an effort to bring the nose into better balance with the rest of the face. The nose size may be reduced or the nose itself may be redefined in different areas to give it an entirely different shape. Rhinoplasty is often used along with another procedure called a septoplasty which can treat a deviated septum. A deviated septum can affect breathing so that procedure is sometimes covered by insurance.
This type of procedure is more commonly called a facelift. This can be a surgical solution to wrinkles and sagging, which develop in the face as we age. A facelift is used to create a more youthful appearance by gently pulling the skin tighter. This helps to smooth deep lines and reduce drooping. Facelifts are often done along with other procedures such as neck lifts or skin peels.
