Cosmetic Surgery

Last Updated: April 20, 2012

Cosmetic surgery essentially refers to elective procedures chosen by patients for aesthetic purposes.

There are a wide variety of procedures that are considered cosmetic surgeries, including tummy tucks, breast augmentation, eyelid surgery and liposuction, to name just a few.

What are the most popular types of cosmetic surgery?

Abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck, and Liposuction are the most popular plastic cosmetic surgery being performed today.

These procedure offers an immediate and highly effective solution to treat excess and sagging skin as well as fatty tissue that has accumulated in the abdomen and other parts of the body.

Breast Augmentation is another extremely popular cosmetic surgery procedure, as is Rhinoplasty (nose jobs), Blephoroplasty (eyelid surgery) and Face lifts.

What are the major benefits of cosmetic surgery?

Cosmetic surgery offers individuals numerous benefits for both their physical appearance and their emotional needs.

These benefits include a more youthful appearance, a more shapely body and most importantly an inner feeling of self-satisfaction resulting in higher confidence levels.

The simple process of changing one’s body image can directly affect every aspect of one’s lives.

What are the major risks and average recovery times?

Like all surgical procedures, cosmetic surgeries do come with some risks. These may include slow healing, numbness and tingling due to injury to a sensory nerve, infection, fluid accumulation under the skin and irregularities such as puckers or dimples due to doctor error or healing problems.

Other risks that can occur from any type of surgical procedure include aspiration, blood clots or blood loss. Recovery times vary according to the surgical procedure performed although average recovery periods range from 3 days to 3 weeks.

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic surgery?

Good candidates for most plastic cosmetic surgery should be non-smokers, in good health and be emotionally stable.

Importantly, they should also have realistic expectations about the results and be able to accept the discomfort, medical risks and inconvenience that come with cosmetic surgery.
