Cosmetic Surgeries – What Are They & How They Are Done

Gone are the days when surgeries are normally done for health and medication reasons. Now, surgeries are extensively used for beauty purposes. There are many types of cosmetic procedures. Here are some of them and how they are carried out:

Laser peel- also known as laser skin resurfacing, this operation is known to reduce wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. Beams of light will be used to remove unwanted skin one layer at a time.

Brachioplasty (arm lift) – it reduces excess skin and fat between the underarm and elbow; and reshapes the arm for it to turn out more proportionate and toned. The incision for arm lift can be done at the back or inner arm.

Dermabrasion and Dermaplaning – these are done to treat deep acne scars and to smoothen the skin’s top layer. It is done by scraping where a rough wire brush will be used to remove scar and wrinkles.

Liposuction – excess fat deposits will be eliminated to reshape particular areas of the body. It is normally done by means of creating small incisions in the targeted part of the body.

Mastopexy (breast lift) – it removes excess skin and tightens the bordering tissues to produce firmed and contour breast. After creating an incision around the areola or the small circular area around the breast, the nipple will be reshaped for it look more natural.

Sclerotherapy- also known as spider vein treatment, it is performed by injecting a sclerosing solution to collapse the affected vein. The treatment is usually done in less than an hour in two or more sessions.

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) – this procedure which reshapes and improves the appearance of the nose can be done in two different methods. It can be by closed procedure where the cut is hidden inside the nose; or an open procedure where a cut is made thru thin strip of tissue that splits the nostrils.

Facial implants- this plastic surgery is beneficial to those who want to achieve better face proportion and structure. It is performed by creating an incision on targeted areas such as face, cheek, and jaw.
