For people who want to adjust their appearance and reach their beauty goals, cosmetic plastic surgery may be a great option. Cosmetic surgery can tighten and improve the appearance of skin, adjust facial features, add or remove hair, and much more. Cosmetic plastic surgery may also be used for medical purposes, such as for people who have had accidents, to restore the function of a body part, or to repair scars from surgery.
When the size of the breast is increased, the procedure may also be called ‘breast implant surgery’. Breast augmentation is not the same as breast lifts or breast reduction, which are actually different types of procedures. Dermabrasion uses a specialized tool that gently ‘sands’ down the top layer of skin.
Hair transplantation surgery, also known as hair restoration, is performed to improve the appearance of baldness. In this procedure, hair is moved from an area of thick growth to a bald area. In a single session, more than a thousand hairs may be moved. Some people may require more than one session.
Lip augmentation is not permanent. The effects tend to last around 6 months before a second procedure is necessary to restore shape and volume. Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that improves the shape of the body by removing fat deposits. This procedure is not intended for weight loss. Localized fat deposits are removed directly beneath the skin by using a vacuum-suction canula, a pen-shaped instrument.
