Plastic surgery is becoming more and more popular. In the last few years, there have been several new procedures that have become very popular. In this blog post, I will discuss the seven most common plastic surgery procedures. And, I will explain why these procedures have become so popular. As well as, the potential risks and benefits of each procedure.
One of the most common plastic surgical treatments is breast augmentation. In fact, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, breast implants are the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States. There are two types of breast implants. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water. Silicone gel implants are filled with silicone gel.
Breast implants can be used to increase the size of your breasts, restore the volume of your breasts after weight loss or pregnancy, or improve the symmetry of your breasts. Breast implants are not permanent and you may need to have them removed or replaced at some point in the future. There are potential risks and complications associated with breast implants, including infection, bleeding, and capsular contracture. But, overall, breast implants are safe and effective.
A lot of people choose to get their implants overseas for various reasons. Sometimes is cost-related sometimes it’s the quality of work. So don’t be surprised if someone tells you they got their breast implants in Glasgow, London, or any other city in the world. This is becoming more and more popular.
Liposuction is a type of plastic surgical procedure that involves the removal of fat from the body. It can be used to improve your appearance and your self-confidence. Liposuction can be performed on multiple areas of the body, including the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, neck, and back. The most common type of reconstructive surgery is tumescent liposuction. This type of liposuction uses a large amount of saline solution to numb the area and help break up the fat cells.
Liposuction is generally safe and effective. However, there are potential risks and complications associated with any surgery, including infection, bleeding, and bruising.
Liposuction is a popular procedure because it can be used to target specific areas of fat. It is critical to meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your surgical goals and expectations.

Eyelid Surgery AKA Blepharoplasty
There’s been a significant increase in the number of people opting for eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, in recent years. This procedure can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids and involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and muscle that can cause drooping or sagging. Blepharoplasty can help to improve vision and also create a more youthful appearance.
If you are thinking about having eyelid surgery, it’s important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and expectations. The surgeon will also assess your overall health to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure.
Blepharoplasty is typically an outpatient procedure that is performed under local anesthesia or sedation. Recovery from the surgery is usually relatively short, and most people are able to return to their normal activities within a week or two.
If you are considering plastic surgery, blepharoplasty is definitely worth considering. It can help improve your appearance and also your vision. Just be sure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to make sure it’s the right choice for you.
A facelift is a surgery that improves the appearance of the face. It can be done to tighten loose skin, remove wrinkles, or improve the look of jowls. A facelift can make a person look younger and refreshed. The surgery can be done on people of any age, but it is most often done on people over the age of 40.
A facelift is usually done under general anesthesia, which means that the person is asleep during the surgery. The surgeon makes incisions in the skin, often starting at the hairline near the temples. The skin is then lifted and excess fat is removed. The surgeon may also reposition some of the underlying tissues and muscles. The skin is then draped back over the face and secured with stitches. The incisions are usually closed with dissolvable stitches.
Most people stay in the hospital overnight after a facelift. The surgery usually takes two to four hours, but it may take longer if more extensive work is done. Recovery from a facelift takes about two weeks. During that time, the person should avoid strenuous activity, exposure to sunlight, and bending over. After two weeks, the majority of people are able to return to work. Bruising and swelling usually go away after a few weeks.
A Neck Lift
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of your neck, jawline, and chin. It can be done alone or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a facelift, brow lift, or eyelid surgery. A neck lift can correct several concerns at once including loose skin around the neck and jowls, excess fat deposits, and muscle banding.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your neck and jawline but are not ready for surgery, there are nonsurgical options such as injectable fillers and skin tightening treatments that can give you excellent results with little to no downtime. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon will help you determine which procedure is right for you.
The postoperative recovery period for a neck lift is usually pretty short. Most people feel well enough to return to work and other normal activities within a week or two. There will likely be some bruising and swelling, but this should resolve within a few weeks. Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on how to care for your incisions and when you can return to exercise and other physical activities.
A Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall. It can be performed on both men and women but is most often done on women who have had multiple pregnancies.
The surgery can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, and usually takes two to three hours. Recovery time is typically one to two weeks.
In conclusion, these are the seven most common plastic surgery procedures in recent years. If you are considering any of these procedures, be sure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure that it is the right choice for you.
