Cosmetic surgery has evolved tremendously over the last couple of decades. Earlier, the products available at the disposal of cosmetic surgeons could not guarantee 100% patient safety and also often under-performed. Maybe that was because this form of surgery was not considered a part of mainstream medicine and there was lack of research and funds.
This scenario has changed completely now. Cosmetic surgery is no longer the privilege of a lucky few. Over the past couple of years, cosmetic surgeons have achieved unimaginable feats and that has helped bring cosmetic surgery into the limelight.
The benefits of cosmetic surgery
Even though the term “cosmetic” relates to appearance, a science in itself is capable of much more than that.
A physical deformity or an imperfection could have a tremendous negative impact on the social life of a person and also rob him of his confidence. This is equally true for the visible signs of aging.
Different forms of cosmetic surgeries can rectify structural defects or imperfections brought about by diseases, accidents, inheritance or just time (in case of aging).
Some common cosmetic surgery procedures include:
Facelift: A combination of Botox, fillers, different kinds of implants and minimally invasive procedures can gift a person with the perfect jawline, the perfect smile, the perfect nose tip, shapely eyebrows, smooth glabella and an overall wrinkle free glowing face.
The good part is, such procedures do not require hospital stay. As a matter of fact, most facelift procedures are completed within just a couple of hours and the patient can return back to normal life right away.
Tummy Tuck: Heavy work pressure, stress and less than perfect dietary habits lead to unwanted fat deposition in the tummy area that is hard to get rid of. Tummy tuck surgery (also called liposuction) can safely remove those fat reserves and help the patient get back into shape. Advanced instruments make this procedure painless and the downtime is also minimal.
Breast Augmentation: Breast augmentation has spilled over from Hollywood into mainstream and is now considered one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. Breast tissues have a tendency to sag with time. With the use of silicone or saline filled implants, a cosmetic surgeon can reshape the breasts so the patient looks and feels younger. The high-quality implants and advanced incision techniques that surgeons use nowadays have made it a very safe and scar free procedure.
