Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery, also known as aesthetic surgery, is a branch of medicine that focuses on enhancing the appearance of the face and body through surgical procedures.

It encompasses a wide range of techniques designed to improve overall aesthetics, address perceived imperfections, and boost self-confidence.

Cosmetic surgery procedures can be broadly categorized into two main types:

  • Face and Neck Surgery: These procedures aim to rejuvenate the face and neck, addressing signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and facial contours. Common procedures include facelifts, brow lifts, blepharoplasties (eyelid surgery), rhinoplasties (nose reshaping), and chin augmentations.
  • Body Contouring Surgery: These procedures focus on reshaping and sculpting various body areas to achieve a more desirable silhouette. Common procedures include breast augmentations and reductions, liposuction (fat removal), tummy tucks, body lifts, and buttock augmentations.

Cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure, meaning it is not medically necessary but rather a personal choice to improve one's appearance.

You may choose to undergo cosmetic surgery for various reasons, such as to enhance your facial features or body contours, address perceived imperfections or concerns about your appearance, correct asymmetries or irregularities in the face or body, and counteract the effects of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and volume loss.

Before undergoing cosmetic surgery, it is crucial to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss the risks, benefits, and expectations associated with the procedure.

The surgeon will assess the individual's needs and goals, provide personalized recommendations, and ensure they are well-informed about the procedure.
