A qualified doctor can determine if surgical procedures are ideal for you, primarily based on the extent of appearance of the signs of aging. People who desire a more dramatic change in their appearance would experience better results with surgical procedures. Non-surgical options have lots of advantages, but they don’t deliver results as well as the invasive ones.
These surgeries typically involve major body incisions and have to be performed under general anesthesia. There are several surgical options. They include:
- Breast implants
- Facial implants
If you have disproportionately underdeveloped boobs or sagging breasts, you can correct the problem with breast augmentation surgery. The procedure would be appropriate for people who fit into any of these categories:
- Those who have recently undergone significant loss of weight
- Women whose breasts have changed because of breastfeeding
- ladies with breasts that are disproportionate to the rest if their bodies
- females who are generally not pleased with the size or shape of their breasts
As with all other procedures on this list, the main benefit you will experience is the boost in self-confidence. If you go for the services of a highly qualified surgeon, you should expect beautiful and natural-looking results. The procedure has grown to become very safe, and that is why more women are now choosing to “fix” their breasts with implants.
That said, it is still a form of surgery and carries some risk. It is not unusual for women to go for additional surgeries in the future. These further operations may or may not involve the removal of the implants. You might also experience some pain in your breasts, usually resulting from the formation of scar tissue around the implant. This tissue squeezes the implants, resulting in pain.
Ruptures may also occur, and these might produce symptoms. Some women will also experience changes in the sensation of the breasts and nipples.
Facial implants can be used to correct flaws on the face or even create new features. They can be compared to regular makeup, except for the fact that the results are permanent. The implants are usually made from materials that don’t easily get rejected by the body. Surgeons even use human tissues to make implants. These can never get rejected by the patient’s body. Other popular implant materials include silicone and polythene. Implants made from these two materials produce longer lasting results.
Facial implants can be used to create subtle, as well as dramatic changes in the appearance of the face. Your doctor will advise you on ways to harmonize all the features of your face. This procedure is safe and has a short recovery time. It can even be performed under local anesthesia.
The risks of the procedure include unfavorable scarring in the face, infections, poor healing, and changes in the sensation of the skin. Structures below the facial skin such as the nerves and blood vessels may also get damaged. You might also experience swelling, persistent pain, and discoloration of the skin.
Your doctor will inform you of all the potential risks before the operation.
Rhinoplasty is popularly referred to as a nose reshaping or nose job. The procedure is meant to improve the appearance of your nose in relation to the other features of your face. Besides the cosmetic benefits of the procedure, you might also experience better and easier breathing. People with structural nose abnormalities resulting from injuries or birth defects can benefit from this procedure. So, people going for rhinoplasty operations should generally be in good health.
Rhinoplasty can be performed on teenagers, although doctors generally advise people to wait till they grow older. At a more advanced age, you will be able to make a well-informed and mature decision regarding the procedure, and most importantly, your nose will have completed its development.
Rhinoplasty is often coupled with other facial procedures. This is meant to bring balance and harmony to the facial features of the patient.
Some of the risks of rhinoplasty include nose bleeding, infections, and the collection of blood under the skin. Patients might also experience numbness, scarring at the base of the nose, swelling, and damage to the nerves. It is also important for you to have realistic expectations. Over or under correction do not usually occur when dealing with highly experienced surgeons, but they are still risks you should consider.
This procedure is commonly used on the stomach, buttocks, and thighs. The doctor will insert a cannula under your skin and remove the fat from the target area. This is done using a high-pressure vacuum. Liposuction is currently the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure in the world. It is safe and is always carried out under general anesthesia.
Although liposuction is a cosmetic procedure, it can be used to treat certain medical conditions. As such, you should not go for the procedure to manage your body weight. In fact, the procedure is usually meant for patients with stable body weight, but who intend to get rid of fat deposits in certain parts of the body. The amount of fat that can be removed with this procedure is limited. Beyond a certain point, the operation will be dangerous. If you remove more than the recommended amount of fat, you may end up with dents and lumpiness.
Liposuction involves the elimination of fat cells in targeted body parts. This will leave you with a well-shaped body. However, stretch marks and other effects of the procedure will have to be managed in separate procedures. After the operation, you will still need to lead a healthy lifestyle. Otherwise, the fat cells that were not eliminated will still grow larger and nullify the results of the operation.
The shape, size, and look of your body can be altered easily with surgical procedures. These operations produce permanent results and help you feel much better about yourself. Doctors have carried out extensive research on these procedures, and have also operated many people around the world. The risks related to the operations are now minimal.
