Over the years, cosmetic surgery has undergone transformations that make it easier to achieve amazing results. From implants to fat transfers, there are now numerous ways to slim down, firm up, and help you feel your best. With the right treatment plan, you can take years off your appearance and obtain a youthful glow. If you’ve been considering cosmetic surgery, we’ve highlighted five of the most popular procedures for women.
1. Breast Augmentation
Breast Augmentation is a procedure designed to restore or improve breast volume. Implants can help balance out a figure, boost confidence and restore lost volume to the chest area. There are many options available regarding size, shape, and fillers, all which help create the silhouette you’ve always wanted. From saline to gummy, your results will not only increase cup size but look very natural.
Breast augmentation surgery is a major procedure that requires significant recovery time. Your doctor will discuss this with you in your consultation, as well as help you decide what shape and size is best for your body. Just remember to bring along some pictures.
2. Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes fat transfers from different areas of your body. This method uses your fat to create and enhance your backside, giving it a more natural look without the need for implants. The procedure uses liposuction to take fat from one area of the body and move it to another.
Liposuction is first performed on specific areas of the body, such as the lower back, stomach, and thighs. The fat is purified and then injected into various spots in the buttocks to obtain the desired shape and feel. With the Brazilian Butt Lift, the risk of infection is low since we’re utilizing your own fat. And because the procedure uses liposuction, it creates a more uniform, shapely and natural enhancement.
3. Tummy Tuck
Tummy tucks are also quite popular as they dramatically improve the stomach’s appearance by reducing excess fat, skin, and tissue. After pregnancy, you can even use this procedure to repair abdominal separation. There are two options available. A Mini Tummy Tuck focuses on the lower abdomen by tightening the muscles and reducing loose skin. This surgical procedure flattens the look of the belly, but with less invasive techniques than a standard tummy tuck. A standard Tummy Tuck focuses on a larger area of the torso. Your doctor can help you decide the best option. A Tummy Tuck requires cutting into the abdomen and is considered major surgery. There will be pre and post-op instructions to follow for the best results.
SlimLipo™ is a form of liposuction that uses laser wavelengths to dissolve fat. Unlike traditional liposuction, there is no need for general anesthesia or extensive downtime, because the procedure is noninvasive. With a few tiny incisions, lasers gently “melt” fat for quick and permanent results. Since the lasers stimulate skin cells into producing collagen and elastin, you can also tighten up the skin.
Special note: SlimLipo™ and liposuction treatments aren’t a form of weight loss. The procedure is most beneficial for those who are within 20% of their ideal body weight.
Injections are the easiest way to smooth lines and combat wrinkles. There are quite a few options on the market providing women with the opportunity to tailor their treatment plan to their specific needs. There are two kinds of injections:
Botox® works by using Botulinum toxins, which are injected directly into the facial muscle to restrict muscle movement. Deeply etched lines in the face, often created by intense concentration or constant furrowing, will smooth out with regular use.
Fillers are made with hyaluronic acid which is injected into the face to smooth wrinkles. The filler itself has a gel-like consistency that is inserted into the skin to smooth fine lines. These particular fillers can last from 6 to 12 months before being absorbed.
