Cosmetic surgery is a fast and easy way to adjust and ultimately improve your overall appearance. Many possibilities exist, from getting tighter and softer skin to changing your facial features and everything between.

Here is an overview of five easy and popular cosmetic surgery procedures:

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is performed to increase or change breasts’ size (or a combination of both). It is commonly referred to as breast implant surgery when it involves increasing the breasts’ size. It is also commonly confused for breast reduction or breast lift surgery, but your doctor will walk you through all available options.

Liposuction

Liposuction offers a quick and easy solution to getting rid of excess fat deposits around the body. The procedure uses a pen-shaped vacuum suction device called a cannula plus ultrasound technology to suck fats deposited directly beneath the skin.

The ultrasound rays break up the fat, and the cannula device sucks it out. This results in a firmer, fitter, and more shapely body. It is also worth noting that this procedure can also be used to remove cancerous lipomas (fat tumors).

Liposuction procedures can be performed on several areas across the body, including the stomach, buttocks, hips, thighs, and face. This procedure is quick and easy, as mentioned, and it can be used multiple times in a single day.

Facelift

The skin on the face becomes loose and starts drooping and sagging with age. A facelift procedure is designed to reverse these signs and effects of aging, bringing back your beautiful, youthful face.

A facelift procedure involves excess skin and facial tissue that makes the skin loose and sag. Some of the removed excess skin is replaced over repositioned contours, giving you an overall smooth appearance. Additionally, the surgeon may recommend other procedures to go with the facelift, including a neck lift, forehead lift, eyelid surgery, and nose reshaping.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck procedure is done to give the abdomen a former and shapelier look and feel. The procedure removes excess fats from the area around the abdomen and tightens loose skin. It also restores and rejoins weakened abdominal muscles. Consequently, you can go from having a bulging tummy to a model-like waist in a day.

It is recommendable to exercise regularly after a tummy tuck procedure. The results may be permanent, but avoid building up more fat in the abdomen.

Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion is a procedure designed to make the skin softer, smoother, and firmer. It involves removing the top-most layer on the skin, creating an opportunity for new skin to grow in its place. The new skin is as clear and smooth as a baby’s, giving you a radiant look.

Dermabrasion is popular as a cosmetic surgery procedure. It also has other medical and practical uses, including removing acne scars and lesions on the skin. It is also recommended against Crow’s feet.

Final Thoughts

Cosmetic surgery offers endless possibilities for the changes you can make to your body. It can be mild or drastic, and these are some of the easiest and quickest types of cosmetic surgery.
