Cosmetic surgery

  1. 1. Cosmetic Surgery
  2. 2. Every year, more than a million Americans seek a surgeon’s hand in achieving a flatter tummy, a larger bust, or a reshaped nose chin. 
  3. 3. Nose Job The nose job or rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic procedures. A skilled surgeon can reshape noses that seem too big or wide for the face, that have a bump on the nasal bridge or that are crooked or off-center. 
  4. 4. Neck Lift Loose bands of tissue or “turkey wattle” are caused by weakened neck muscles. A surgeon can correct this problem by adjusting and removing muscles in the neck. Liposuction in conjunction with a neck lift can remove excess fat.
  5. 5. Facelift The facelift uses various techniques to create a smoother, more youthful face. Through incisions around the ear, a surgeon removes excess skin and manipulates the deeper layers of tissue and muscle to tighten the face.
  6. 6. Laser Skin Resurfacing Instead of the scalpel, some patients choose to address facial imperfections with a laser. Laser skin resurfacing uses intense pulsating beams of light to vaporize superficial, damaged skin cells. As the outer layers of skin are removed, fine lines and blemishes disappear.
  7. 7. Hair Transplant Half of men and many women will experience some degree of hair loss as they age. Typically, hair remains thick on the side or back of the head. This allows a surgeon to transfer small amounts of hair to the bald or thinning area, where it takes root. 
  8. 8. Arm Lift Keeping the triceps toned is a challenge as we age, especially for women. A procedure called brachioplasty can fix this. The surgery tightens the under portion of the arm between the armpit and elbow by removing excess skin and fat. It will leave a permanent scar on the inner-back-side of the arm.
  9. 9. Liposuction Liposuction is the most common type of cosmetic surgery with about half a million procedures performed every year. Using a suction device, the surgeon removes small bulges of fat from the tummy, thighs, hips or buttocks. 
  10. 10. Tummy Tuck Unlike liposuction, a tummy tuck is major surgery. Also called abdominoplasty, the procedure surgically removes excess fat and tightens muscles in the abdomen
  11. 11. Breast Implants Breast augmentation is neck and neck with liposuction as the most common form of cosmetic surgery in women. The breasts are enlarged with saline or silicone gel implants – the patient chooses the size she wants. To place the implants inside the breast, a surgeon makes an incision in the armpit, areola, or lower breast fold.
  12. 12. Breast Reduction Fat, tissue, and skin are surgically removed from the breast to achieve the desired size. This reduction can relieve neck and back pain in women with large, heavy breasts. Risks include a change or loss in nipple sensation and difficulty breastfeeding.
  13. 13. It’s important to have realistic expectations and a surgeon you trust. Ask whether your doctor is board certified and can provide references of people who have undergone the procedure you’re considering.
