There are many people among us who wish to enhance their beauty. Be it through the best hair transplant in Pune and other cities, liposuction, or even facelift. For all the people who wish to change or adjust their appearance and reach their beauty goals, cosmetic surgery is a great option
Cosmetic surgery can tighten the skin, improve the appearance of the skin, adjust facial features like the nose, and it even adds or removes hair. Aside from its beauty benefits, cosmetic surgery may also be used for medical purposes.
For example, people who have had accidents, to restore a certain function of a body part, or to repair scars from surgery. There are many procedures out there. Let us look at the eight most common types of cosmetic plastic surgery:
- Hair transplant
Hair transplantation surgery, also known as hair restoration, is for people who suffer from partial or complete baldness. It is the most common procedure among men. In this procedure, hair follicles are removed from an area of thick growth to an area that is bald or has started balding.
There are two types of hair transplant:
- Follicular Unit Transplant
- Follicular Unit Extraction
Both have a recovery period of about 2 to 3 months depending upon the health of the patient.
- Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is the procedure that increases the size or changes the shape of the breasts. When the size of the breasts is increased it is called ‘breast implant surgery’. Breast augmentation is not the same as breast lifts.
Dermabrasion uses a textured tool that gently exfoliates and removes the top layer of skin. Once the top layer of skin has been removed, the collagen is rebuilt and new skin replaces the old. The new skin is more smooth and younger-looking as the collagen production in the skin is increased.
Dermabrasion is used for:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Crow’s feet
- Growths or lesions on the skin
- Sun-damaged skin
Facelift repairs sagging, loose, drooping, or wrinkled skin on the face. During this procedure, facial tissues are lifted, excess skin removed, and skin replaced over repositioned contours. Neck lifts are common procedures along with Facelift.
Rhinoplasty is done to repair or reshape the nose. Some people opt for rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons such as bad nose shape or disproportionate nose. Others may have a medical reason, such as difficulty breathing or birth defects.
Rhinoplasty can be used to:
- Increase or reduce the size of the nose
- Correct problems caused due to an injury
- Correct birth defects
- Relieve or improve breathing problems
- Narrow the shape of the nostrils
- Change the shape of the bridge
- Change the angle of the nose
- Lip augmentation
Lip augmentation is done to give fuller or bigger appearing lips. Usually, dermal fillers that are injected into the lips are used to increase lip volume, shape, or structure.
However, the lip augmentation procedure is not permanent. The effects last for around 6 months before a second procedure is necessary to restore shape and volume.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that improves the shape of the body. In this procedure excess fat around a certain area that looks undesirable is removed. But this procedure does not reduce weight.
Localized fat deposits around certain areas such as hips or stomach are removed directly beneath the skin by using a vacuum-suction canister. Ultrasound is used to break the fat deposits prior to removal with suction.
Liposuction is performed on the arms, thighs, stomach, hips, face, buttocks, and back. It can also be used to remove the appearance of breasts in men. Liposuction can also remove fat tumors (lipomas).
- Tummy Tuck
Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a ‘tummy tuck’, is used to improve the shape of specifically the abdomen. Tummy tucks remove excess fat and skin around the stomach.
It restores weakened or separated muscles around the stomach in order to improve the profile. Tummy tucks can improve the appearance of loose or sagging skin, but cannot remove stretch marks.
A tummy tuck is not a replacement for an exercise routine or eating right for weight loss. The results of a tummy tuck are permanent, but maintaining a proper weight is critical for maintaining the results of the procedure.
Microneedling is done to restore the elasticity of your face. Holes of micro-size are made on the face. This sends the signal to the brain that the skin is ruptured. And hence the skin produces more collagen. Now as the collagen produces new skin, the new skin is younger-looking, fresh, and problem-free.
