Developments in the cosmetic scene have made plastic surgeries super versatile. From lip fillers to botox and implants, plastic surgeries can switch up the appearance of anything, and high-tech procedures and injectables have made this all the more efficient. The stigma attached to injectables has now begun to reduce, which means more people might opt for it. Here are a few of the most popular plastic surgeries that are taking the cosmetic industry by storm.
Rhinoplasty (nose job)
One of the most popular plastic surgeries, rhinoplasty is life-changing for many. A nose job alters the appearance of the nose and reshapes it by reducing its size or altering the edges for a more defined look. If rhinoplasty is sought for health conditions, like to treat a deviated septum, the cost can be covered through insurance.
Breast reduction is sought to remove extra amounts of tissue, fat, and skin from the breasts. Large breasts can often lead to difficulty breathing, bad posture, and back pain, and many opt for breast reduction to relieve such symptoms. Due to health reasons, the cost can be paid by insurance.
People may also opt for breast reduction if they want their breast size to be proportionate to their body. This procedure was more sought-after when its counter surgery of breast implants was linked to cancer. The FDA found that silicone implants could lead to a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Liposuction pulls out fat from and contours specific areas of the body using a suction technique. This can be done in areas like the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and calves, and good skin elasticity can make the skin appear smoother after liposuction. Otherwise, the skin may look loose if the areas have drastically reduced fat content. After the procedure, one might notice bruising and swelling, which takes a few weeks to subside.
Saggy brows and foreheads with deep furrows can be corrected with a forehead lift, and this type of plastic surgery can totally change the appearance of the upper part of the face. It alters drooping eyebrows, face lines, and furrows between eyebrows. This plastic surgery is popular among people looking to fix brow asymmetry and is thought to be a self-esteem booster as well. After aging, the brows move lower and the skin on the face becomes loose, and a forehead lift tries to restore a youthful appearance.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 299,715 breast augmentation cosmetic surgeries were performed in the country in 2019. This is one of the most popular plastic surgeries and involves enlarging the breasts, replacing absent ones, or making them symmetrical. Although silicone implants pose health risks, many opt for breast augmentation.
