Top 5 Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures

by


Plastic surgery is becoming more and more commonplace throughout the United States. Though it's true that a lot of people seek these types of procedures for self-esteem and self-image purposes, it's also sought for reasons due to accidents, improved health, birth defects/birthmarks, symptoms from cancer, and even weight loss. Top plastic surgeons realize this and thus offer a variety of procedures to address virtually any need you might have.

Due to their rate of success and simple necessity, there are procedures that are certainly trendier than others. Here are the top 5 most popular plastic surgery procedures.

Liposuction
Being overweight puts additional stress on certain parts of the body like the back, knees, and hips. Despite having good health and a moderate level of fitness, many people still suffer from having a disproportionate body due to localized fat deposits. To alleviate this and enhance self-image, liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits.

Though the removal of excess fat is usually enough to make a difference when it comes to removing the pressure and strain from the body, liposuction should not be thought of as a form of effective weight loss. However, the small amount of weight reduction can certainly inspire patients to move forward with a healthy lifestyle, which will allow them to lose additional weight and further eliminate stress on their bodies, all the while achieving a more desired look.

Eyelid Surgery
The eyes are often one of the first things people notice about a person, so it's quite common to feel insecure if they are visually unappealing. Unfortunately, both age and genetics are inevitable, as those two factors can make your eyelids have a sagging, hooded appearance, resulting in a fatigued look. In some cases, the drooping of our eyelids can even impair vision.

Fortunately, eyelid surgery can correct the appearance by carefully excising extra skin and fat from the eye area. It's also an effective way to correct the under eye bags, which can make you appear tired.

Breast Augmentation / Implants
Of all the procedures listed, breast augmentation is easily the most popular of all cosmetic surgeries in the United States. One of the main reasons for its popularity is due to its extremely wide demographic, including many different age groups: young 20-somethings, women post-childbirth, and middle age. Breasts are also seen as the most defining part of what it is considered to be female, for better or worse. Enhancing or enlarging breasts, filling deflated breasts, and correcting congenital symmetry are all ways to both empower women and boost their confidence.

Nose Jobs (Rhinoplasty)
Many people are displeased with the appearance of their nose for a variety of different reasons. It might be crooked, bumpy, too wide or too narrow, or it simply doesn’t go well with the rest of their facial features. Rhinoplasty is another popular plastic surgery procedure that is often very effective in improving someone’s appearance. Even the slightest correction to a nose can have a significant impact on the attractiveness of a face, completely changing the way someone looks. Not only is rhinoplasty considered a cosmetic procedure, it can be performed to improve overall breathing by fixing a deviated septum or reducing airway obstruction.

Facelifts

Both the skin and muscles lose their elasticity and begin to sag as we age, creating features that can be seen as unappealing to many people. These include under eye bags, jowls, a double chin, and deep creases, all of which can make us look and feel older than we actually are. Facelift surgery can dramatically improve these visible signs of aging, bringing back a desirable sense of confidence and youth. It's important to remember that a facelift will not stop the progression of aging, however it can help to restore vitality and radiance to skin and facial features, allowing people to look younger and, in turn, feel younger.

No one is or can be perfect. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to regain your self-confidence. If diet, exercise, and beauty products aren't giving you the results you want, there are countless procedures that can help you feel like your best self.
