The 10 most popular Cosmetic Surgeries
Patients opt for Cosmetic Surgery for any number of personal reasons. Some have always felt insecure about a particular aspect of their appearance; others are looking to address changes that have occurred as they’ve aged or after pregnancy and breast feeding, sometimes patients use Cosmetic Surgeries to put the finishing touches to their body after a period of weight loss and exercise.
There are a myriad of different motivations; but these are the 10 most popular Cosmetic Surgeries.
- Breast Revision
This is a procedure that addresses the unsatisfactory results of a previous Breast Surgery, unfortunately some 277, 528 were performed world-wide in 2014. The number highlights the importance of having your procedure at a reputable Cosmetic Surgery clinic; remember to think about quality of care, as well as the cost of a Cosmetic Surgery.
- Breast Reduction
A Breast Reduction involves removing some of the breast tissue and skin and uplifting the breast for a smaller, perkier boob.
- Face Lift
Skin loses elasticity and firmness as we age. A Face Lift corrects drooping skin around the jaw line as well as generally tightening the skin on the face for a smoother, younger looking complexion.
- Breast Lift
Potentially part of a general trend in Cosmetic Surgery currently for more natural looking results, an increasing number of women are opting for a Breast Lift, as opposed to a full Breast Augmentation.
- Tummy Tuck
A Tummy Tuck tightens the skin across the abdomen for a firmer, slimmer looking stomach. The procedure is commonly performed on women following pregnancy, to help return their pre-baby body.
Commonly known as a Nose Job, a Rhinoplasty addresses the shape and size of a nose. It often corrects crocked or ridged noses, or reduces the size of a large nose.
- Fat Grafting
Fat Grafting procedures take fat from one area of the patient’s body and move it to another area, such as the breasts or bum.
Fat removal through liposuction can target stubborn areas of fat which simply cannot be shifted through diet and exercise alone. The procedure is never recommended as a weight loss procedure, it is instead a body sculpting operation.
- Breast Augmentation
Breast implants are still an incredibly popular cosmetic enhancement, 1,348,197 Breast Augmentations were performed world-wide in 2014 alone.
- Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery can give the eyes a wider appearance, 1,427,451 Eyelid Surgeries were performed in 2014.
