Types Of Cosmetic Surgeries That Might Interest You

Though every individual has been bestowed with alluring physical attributes, lifestyle and daily activities sometimes get in the way of further nurturing these gifts.

Science also has gifted us the ability to restore, refine, or even tweak some parts of our bodies. Cosmetic surgery has gone a long way in helping humans feel more confident in their physical selves. So what are the types of cosmetic surgeries that can be done by your trusted plastic surgeon? Let’s find out.

Cosmetic Surgeries Available For You

There are certainly several procedures that are afforded for everyone to give them that coveted silky smooth skin, face, or body. Here are some of them.


This is one of the least invasive cosmetic surgery procedures. Facelift surgery involves an incision around the front of the ear and behind the hairline to remove excess skin and tighten the face. People in the age of 35 to 50 mostly request this type of plastic surgery because that is the age where the face of our skin starts to sag and lose its firmness.

Breast Enhancement Surgeries

There are a number of breast plastic surgeries that have been available for the public for a long time now. There’s breast augmentation – where a woman’s breast is surgically enlarged, breast reduction – the opposite of enlarging the size of the bust, and breast lift – a treatment for sagging or poorly shaped breasts. Breast procedures are safe as long as it is done by a competent plastic surgeon.


Rhinoplasty or a nose job brings a balance to the face by reshaping your nose. Surgeons mostly reduce the overall size of the nose, refine some of its areas or lift it for a more pleasing appearance.

There are also medical reasons why rhinoplasty is needed by a patient and not just for cosmetic reasons. In the case of a deviated septum – a condition where a bone in the nose is off-center and it makes it difficult to breathe. 

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck or what the medical profession calls the abdominoplasty procedure is the lifting of your lower body. The surgeon removes the excess skin from your tummy and tightens the remaining ones. Take note that the surgery is only for people who have sagging skin in their tummies and don’t have extra fat in them. The procedure is usually done after being pregnant or for those that have lost significant weight after another surgery.


Liposuction is the removal of excess fats from specific areas of the body to give it a leaner appearance. This procedure is invasive and needs a small hollow metal inserted on that part of the body to suction the fat out of the body. 

Another type of liposuction that uses ultrasonic energy does not need any instrument to be injected into your body but can cause internal and external burns if not attended to properly.

There are far more ways where you can achieve that impressive appearance to your liking. But keep in mind that every procedure has its own risks. So always research before deciding to undergo one.
