Plastic surgery is quickly becoming something that everyone and their mom are deciding to get. It’s easy to come to this decision when surgery is so widely acceptable in today’s society.
Additionally, advancements in plastic surgery techniques have made procedures safer and more affordable than ever before. Getting that much-wanted nip or tuck is a way that women can enhance their natural beauty and resolve trouble spots instantly.
Here are the top four plastic surgery procedures that women are getting today.
Liposuction: #1 Most-Performed Procedure
Liposuction, also known as body sculpting, is a permanent way to remove excess fat from body areas where regular exercise and dieting are not affecting specific areas of the body. Older liposuction methods involved an incision, a large cannula tool, and manual movements by the surgeon to break up fat before vacuuming it out.
SmartLipo, however, is a newer method (approved by the FDA in 2007) that uses a laser to melt fat from just about any area in the body. It can be used on even the smallest of areas including the mons pubis, neck, arms, stomach, ankles, buttocks, thighs, back, calves, and knees.
Breast Augmentation: #2
Some women are dissatisfied with the original curves that Mother Nature gave them. This is why breast augmentation is so popular. This procedure involves either a saline implant (31% of patients choose saline) or silicone implant (69% of patients choose silicone) being placed in the breast cavity to give a more voluptuous shape. The average cost in the U.S. (as of this writing) is around $6,500. It takes about a week to heal enough to go back to work.
Some women are now choosing to get a fat transfer to the breasts where their own fat is harvested using liposuction and then injected into the breasts for a completely natural breast augmentation. The average cost of fat transfer to the breasts is somewhere between $8,500 to $12,000 or more, depending upon the prices in each state.
The eyes are often the first area of the face to show the signs of aging. Cosmetic eyelid surgery is an excellent way to attain a youthful appearance and lift both the lower and upper lids. An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is a fairly unobtrusive surgery that can take up to ten years off of your face.
Butt Augmentations: #4
Thanks to interest in the Kardashians, J-Lo, Alicia Keys, and other voluptuous celebrities, the buttocks are quickly becoming a hot spot on the body. As a result, more women each year choose to increase the curve of their buttocks and give it some lift.
A buttocks augmentation can either use fat transfer to fill it out and change the contour or butt implants made of silicone can be used. We do not recommend or perform buttock implant surgery. Both of these procedures leave virtually no visible scarring. The fat transfer procedure (which we do) involves minimal downtime while the implant procedure (which we do not do) can involve a 2-3 week recovery time.
