Botox (also known asVistabel outside the U.S. and the U.K.)is an injection that temporarily relaxes facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent new lines from forming. Common injection sites include the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, the corners of the eyes, and the sides of the chin. Botox can also be used for a wide variety of other conditions, including migraines, excessive sweating, and psoriasis.
Brow lift refers to any procedure that lifts the eyebrows, including a forehead lift. It is a surgery that usually involves an incision at the hairline to smooth and tighten the skin.
Cheek augmentation fillsout sunken cheeks and changes the contour of the face. Some add synthetic implants while others useinjectable fillers or fat transfers for a more rounded appearance.
Chemical peels remove old skin so that new layers can grow in their place. This controlled removal ranges in strength, from superficial peels that use mild acids to deep peels that penetrate several layers of skin. Depending the type of peel you get, you might have a reaction similar to a sunburn, which may involve scaling, swelling, and blisters. This may last anywhere from three to 14 days, after which time your skin should be smoother, brighter, and softer.
A chin implant is one of two ways the chin may be reshaped through surgery. The other, called sliding genioplasty, uses your own bone to augment the chin and therefore doesn't involve inserting a synthetic implant under the skin. Chin augmentations are often performed at the same time as rhinoplasty to have the most impact on your profile.
Chin liposuction, also called submental liposuction, reduces excess fat under the chin, neck and jowls. Patients with good skin elasticity are good candidates. The procedure requires local anesthesia and a chin strap garment.
Dermabrasion is the process of surgically scraping the skin to help lessen the appearance of scars, wrinkles, pigmentation, and pre-cancerous lesions.
Ear surgery, also called otoplasty or ear pinning, surgically moves the ears closer to the head. This surgery permanently corrects protruding ears and brings them into better proportion with the face.
Blepharoplasty (more commonly known as eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift) tightens or removes excess sagging skin around the eyes, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. The procedure may also be used to create a crease where one is missing, such as with Asian eyelid surgery.
A facelift reduces wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck caused by aging or weight loss. The procedure removes excess skin, tightens the underlying muscles, and redrapes the skin in a higher position. The results go beyond what can be expected from wrinkle-fighting injections like Botox. Different types of lifts, such as cheek lifts or mini lifts, address specific concerns.
Injectable fillers, like Juvederm or Restylane, can be used for everything from lip augmentation to wrinkle treatment to scar removal. There are manyto choose from, and the RealSelf community has tried them all.Injectable fillers may be used to correct a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as wrinkles, thin lips, acne scars, andundereye areas.
Juvéderm is an FDA-approved collection of injectable fillers used for a variety of reasons, including lifting the cheeks, smoothing marionette lines around the mouth, and plumping the lips. It may also be used to fill pitted acne scars or reduce the appearance of aging hands. Juvéderm fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Results typically last between nine months to a year.
Laser resurfacing uses an intense light beam to treat several skin issues, from acne scars to age spots. There are two categories of lasers: Ablative, which removes thin layers of skin and is more invasive, and nonablative, less invasive lasers that tighten skin and stimulate collagen.
Lasers are used in cosmetic procedures for everything from skin resurfacing to teeth whitening to liposuction to vision correction. All lasers are either ablative or non-ablative. Ablative lasers remove the top layer of your skin, and treatments typically require some recovery time while skin heals. Non-ablative lasers are less invasive, and use heat to stimulate cells to thicken the underlying collagen resulting in improved skin tone and elasticity.
Retin-A is considered an essential part of almost any skincare routine, according to many RealSelf doctors and dermatologists. Atopical treatment rich in vitamin A, Retin-Ais often prescribed to treat acne, but italso improvesthe skin's overall appearance, including minimizing fine wrinkles. Itis one of many topical prescription medications that uses tretinoin, an FDA-approved drug thatstimulates skin cell turnover.
Rhinoplasty (more commonly referred to as a nose job) is a surgical procedure that reshapes or resizes the nose. It can correct a variety of concerns, including a visible bump on the nasal bridge, a droopy or enlarged nasal tip, a nose that's off-center or crooked, or asymmetry due to a previous injury. Those who don't want to undergo surgery may consider a non-surgical nose job, which uses fillers such as Radiesse or Juvederm to smooth out humps and bumps.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that's used to treat mild to severe facial wrinkles. Unlike other injectables that fill wrinkles, Sculptra is made from a poly-L-lactic acid that stimulates the body's natural production of collagen over time. The treatment typically involves three injection sessions over the course of three to four months, and results can last for up to two years.
Voluma is an FDA-approved filler that's part of the Juvederm collection of injectables. It's designed to be used specifically in the mid-face, adding volume to the cheeks. Voluma is made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Results typically last between nine months to a year.
Butt augmentation refers to any procedure that increases size or restores volume to the behind. These procedures include implants and the Brazilian butt lift, which uses a person's own fat to enhance the buttocks.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, non-surgicalfat-reduction treatmentthat uses a handheld device to precisely freeze and destroy fat below the surface of the skin. CoolSculpting is not intended for significant weight loss, but for treating stubborn areas of fatresistant to diet and exercise. Approvedtreatment areasinclude the abs, love handles, inner thighs, back, arms, and underneath the chin. >
Kybellais a non-surgical injectablefor reducingmoderate to severe fat below the chin, the area commonly known as a"double chin."The injection contains a naturally occurring substance in the body,deoxycholic acid,which helps the body absorb fat cells. When properly injected, Kybella destroys fat cells. The FDA approved Kybella as a treatment for adults with submental fat in 2015.Using Kybella for treatment on areas other than the double chin is not approved or recommended. The treatment is calledBelkyra in Canada, Australia, and U.K.
Liposuction is an invasive procedure used to remove areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Thin tubes called cannulas are inserted into the body, dislodging fat cells and suctioning them out. Lipo can be performed on various body parts, including the abdomen and waist, hips and thighs, and cheeks, chin, and neck. It's important to note that liposuction is intended to improve body contour and not to significantly reduce weight, cellulite, or sagging skin.
Men undergo this tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, to remove excess skin after significant weight loss.
Like a traditional tummy tuck, the mini removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen. However, this procedure focuses only on the area below the belly button, not the entire abdomen. This is often performed on women who have mild sagging or post-baby pooch, stretch marks from pregnancy, or C-section scarring. It can also be called a mini-abdominoplasty.
The mommy makeover (also known as a mummy makeover in the UK)is a combination of procedures designed to restore various parts of the body, particularly after pregnancy. It commonly includes a tummy tuck (to remove loose skin in the abdomen) and breast augmentation or a breast lift (to address breasts that have deflated or sagged). Liposuction may also be performed to help with body contouring.
Although scars cannot be removed completely, they can be made less visible. Non-surgical methods include injectable fillers for concave scars, light therapy, lasers, dermabrasion, and chemical peels. Deeper scars require surgery.
There are many options for those who want to get rid of a tattoo, including lasers, dermabrasion, or excision. Lasers are by far the most popular methods, with leading technologies including PicoSure and PicoWay.
Abdominoplasty (commonly known as a tummy tuck) removes excess skin and fat around the stomach while tightening the abdominal wall. The surgery is frequently performed after pregnancy or weight loss, when the skin has become stretched or saggy. A new belly button may need to be surgically created by umbilicoplasty. Other procedures such as liposuction or breast augmentation are often performed at the same time. This is commonly referred to as a mommy makeover.
Also called secondary tummy tucks, revisions are done for several reasons including weight gain or loss, pregnancy, or dissatisfaction from the first surgery.
Breast augmentation surgery is any procedure that enhances the size and shape of a woman's breasts. It's frequently performed to enlarge a naturally small bust or to restore breasts that have been affected by pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. The procedure can be performed using implants (either silicone or saline) or fat transfer.
Breast implant revision surgery can address a variety of concerns following breast augmentation, including implant malfunction, capsular contracture, and dissatisfaction with breast size, among others. Revisions may involve changing the implant, fixing post-op sagging, or aligning asymmetrical breasts.
Breast implants add volume to existing breast tissue to create a fuller chest. Implant options include silicone or saline, rounded or shaped, and textured or smooth, all of which come in a variety of sizes. In addition to choosing the style of implant you want, there are several options for incision locations to consider.
Mastopexy (commonly referred to as a breast lift without implants or a breast uplift in the UK) restores shape and volume that may have been lost due to age, weight loss, or nursing. With most breast lifts, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position in order to create a natural look. If you want larger (as well as perkier) breasts, a breast lift with implants might be worth researching.
A breast lift reshapes sagging or uneven breasts, which may have been affected by aging, pregnancy, or weight loss. The nipple and areola are often shifted to a higher, more youthful position. A breast lift with implants uses this same technique, while also placing silicone or saline breast implants for added volume.
Breast reconstruction is most commonly performed following a mastectomy. Women who want to restore the volume and shape of their breasts may choose to get breast implants, tissue (commonly called "flap") reconstruction, or a combination. Doctors tend to recommend tissue reconstruction for patients who have undergone radiation therapy, due to their increased risks for capsular contracture (a problematic scar tissue response to implants). Nipple reconstruction is also frequently part of the process.
A breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and tissue, which usually results in the nipple and areola being shifted to a higher position. If the areola has been stretched due to the size of the breast, it may also be reduced. Not only does this surgery result in a smaller, perkier bust, it can also help eliminate the back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts.
Gynecomastia is a swelling of the breast tissue in men or boys, caused by an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone. Gynecomastia may resolve on its own or be treated with medication. When more serious cases arises, the breast tissue and surrounding skin can be removed through male breast reduction surgery.
Breasts might get a lot of the attention but nipples matter, too. In this procedure, doctors alter the appearance of the nipples, be it by rebuilding, reducing, or repairing.
A hair transplant (also called hair restoration or hair implantation) restoreshair by transplanting new follicles into balding or thinning areas. Healthy follicles are taken from other areas of the body, most often the back or the sides of the head. This can be done by removing a single strip of skin and hair or removing the follicles individually. The number of grafts needed depends on the patient and the size of the area being treated. A typical surgery involves anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 grafts.
Laser hair removal is a treatment that uses lasers to target the roots of hair beneath the surface of the skin. Though it's not guaranteed to be permanent, a majority do experience permanent hair removal after a series of treatments. There’s a variety of lasers on the market, some more effective than others on certain skin tones, hair colors, and treatment areas. Laser hair removal can be performed on any part of the body.
