Cosmetic procedures are classified as invasive and non-invasive procedures. One should be aware of what procedures are available to them before deciding on which one best suits their needs.
There are many options available to people wanting a youthful look or to enhance their beauty.
Invasive cosmetic procedures include liposuction, micro-fat transfers, implants, otoplasty, blepharoplasty and rhinoplasty. Liposuction removes fat from unwanted areas of the body to give it a more desirable shape; micro-fat transfers also remove small amounts of fat from the body, but the fat is replaced in other areas such as the hands, face and buttocks to improve contour. Implants are used to enhance features of the body. Common types of implants include breast, buttocks, cheek and chin implants. Otoplasty, or ear pinning, is a cosmetic procedure that positions the ears closer to the head by reshaping or removing cartilage from the outer ear. This surgery is generally performed on young children before they enter grade-school. Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids and makes the eyes look younger and more refreshed. Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a nose-job, can be either a cosmetic or corrective surgery, and can change the appearance of the nose by smoothing bumps or narrowing the nose.
Others who are seeking to rejuvenate their look may choose a non-invasive or minimally invasive option. These procedures are typically injections or chemical skin peels that rejuvenate the face. Popular facial rejuvenation options include Botox, Restalyne and Juvederm. These treatments are often used to minimize fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and sagging skin, and some may also be used to give lips a fuller appearance. Chemical skin peels are used to smooth out wrinkles, diminish blemishes and dark spots, and correct skin pigmentation. There are many types of chemical peels, such as antioxidant peels and phenol peels, which vary in strength. Non-invasive procedures generally have to be repeated in order for the effects to be maintained; the effects can last anywhere from four months to a year.
One should consult with their cosmetic surgeon to decide which procedure is best for them. A consultation will give you clear expectations for the procedure and the results you will see. A cosmetic surgeon will inform the patient about pre-surgery procedures and aftercare. The outcome of a cosmetic procedure is impacted by the skill level of the surgeon; make sure your surgeon has the proper accreditations before having the procedure.
