Common Plastic Surgery Procedures

Dec 16, 15 Common Plastic Surgery Procedures

Plastic surgery in Chicago and around the world is here to stay, and more than ever before, people are looking to plastic surgery to improve their looks. There are a number of common plastic surgery procedures including facelifts, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation and liposuction.

Facelift

A facelift may be done at any age, but they are most common in people from age 40 to 70. This procedure helps to correct the issue of excess skin around the upper face, forehead, chin, jowls and neck. This procedure also tightens the muscles of the face. To perform the procedure, a series of small incisions are made around the face, depending on the focus of the lift, and the surgeon does their best to hide the cuts under the hair.

Eyelid Surgery

Another common surgery is eyelid surgery. This procedure is done to improve upon the look of the eyelids, an issue that often occurs with age. During this surgery, pockets of fat in the upper eyelids are taken out, and the lower eyelids are addressed by repositioning or removing excess fat.

Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty, or a “nose job,” is a procedure that gives a person a more aesthetically pleasing nose. This surgery is done to correct the fullness of the nose, to improve the tip of the nose or remove humps. People also choose this surgery to improve asymmetry and correct the wideness of the nostrils.

Breast Augmentation

People also choose to get breast augmentation surgery and breast lifts. A breast augmentation will enhance the size of the breasts, and this is done by implanting silicone or saline sacks, which improves the size and volume of the breasts. A breast lift, on the other hand, helps to improve the contouring of the breasts by removing any excess skin and moving the nipple to a new position.

Liposuction

Finally, liposuction is a very common procedure, and this is done by removing fat from specific areas of the body including the abdomen, chin, thighs, hips, buttocks, upper arms, knees, back, neck or jowls. There are a number of techniques that doctors use to perform these procedures, and depending on the area and amount of fat, some techniques work better than others.
