What is Cosmetic Surgery?
Cosmetic surgery is often carried out to change a person’s appearance in order to achieve what they perceive to be a more desirable look. However, in certain situations cosmetic surgery may be needed for functional reasons. For example, breast reduction is sometimes used to alleviate back or neck pain. Cosmetic surgery is different to plastic surgery. Plastic surgery repairs damaged skin and tissue following injury or illness. It also provides reconstructive surgery after major injuries or cancer removal operations. During cosmetic surgery, a number of different bodily features may be changed, including:
Cosmetic surgery also offers reconstructive surgery for a damaging burn or other physical trauma, enlarge breast, smoothes wrinkles or reshape a nose.
Cosmetic Surgery Options
There are many cosmetic surgery options to improve or change your face and body. When you talk to your surgeon, be open about what you want, but be willing to listen to his or her recommendations. Your surgeon may recommend a different procedure to achieve a similar result.
Often a less invasive or more isolated procedure will do as well as a more involved surgery. And in some cases, your doctor may recommend one of a number of skin care products or non-surgical cosmetic procedures to treat your problem. Below is a summary of some of the newer options available.
Isolated Cosmetic Surgeries - For people with less facial aging, a neck lift, forehead lift, mid-face lift, eyelid surgery, or chin surgery can minimize the effects of aging and offer a fresher, more youthful look.
Cosmetic procedures to improve the body’s appearance include liposuction, breast enlargement or reduction, and abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck).
I can’t imagine the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to alway search my destination.
When it’s dark enough, you can see the stars.
You may not be able to control every situation and its outcome, but you can control your attitude and how you deal with it.
Once you choose hope, anything’s possible. Hope never abandons you, you abandon it.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Dear GOD, if today I lose my hope please remind me that your plans are better than my Dream.....
Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Surgery - For many surgical procedures, including cosmetic surgery, the method of choice has shifted from traditional open surgery to the use of less invasive techniques. Minimally invasive surgery is surgery done with the aid of a viewing scope and specially designed surgical instruments. The scope allows the surgeon to perform major surgery through several tiny openings without the need for a large incision.
These minimally invasive alternatives usually result in less pain, less scarring, and a quicker recovery for the patient, as well as reduced health care costs.
Most surgeries from heart operations to vasectomies are now being done with minimally invasive methods. In fact, operations and therapeutic procedures performed through smaller incisions are becoming standard in surgical medicine.
In cosmetic surgery, minimally invasive procedures use newer technologies, such as a laser, to perform procedures that once required extensive surgery and recovery time. Today’s plastic surgeons have available a variety of tools and techniques that make procedures such as facelifts and eye lifts more accessible and affordable.
In fact, most cosmetic procedures are performed on an outpatient basis in fully equipped operating rooms under either local or general anesthesia.
Recovery times vary depending upon the procedure, but generally the healing period is between one and two weeks for facial cosmetic surgery. In fact, most patients resume their normal activities within two weeks following surgery.
Non-surgical cosmetic treatments
Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are procedures that change a person’s appearance without using surgery. They include:
