Plastic surgery is no longer looked upon as something unconventional or unusual. It has become extremely common these days with more than 18 million people undergoing some or other cosmetic procedures in the United States alone. Also, the purpose of plastic surgery is not limited to improving the physical appearance of a person but also boosting his/her well-being by helping him/her overcome certain bodily issues. Today, both men and women have several plastic surgery options to avail themselves of.  With centers like  conducting various cosmetic procedures on daily basis, it is essential to know about some of the most common types, especially if you are considering going under the knife.




Liposuction has been in trend for a long time now. It is a frequently conducted surgical procedure that suctions fat from specific areas of the person’s body. The intention is to provide a slimmer and shapelier structure. Now, liposuction can further be of several types. The most popular among them is tumescent liposuction, in which a saline solution that constricts the blood vessels along with a numbing agent is injected into the treatable area of the body. The fat and the liquid are suctioned out of the body using cannulas. Short-term fluid retention may appear as a side effect but it resolves within the next few days.


Breast Augmentation


This is perhaps the most widely conducted surgical procedure in the US. Breast augmentation is carried out not just to enlarge both the breasts but also often to replace an absent breast or to make asymmetrical breasts equal in size. This surgery is also popular among women whose breasts have not developed enough during puberty. Silicone implants are used in this particular cosmetic procedure. Women undergoing breast augmentation surgery typically take 1-2 weeks to recover and return to normal activities.




Top plastic surgeons in the world typically work on a lot of abdominoplasty cases. This is commonly referred to as lower body lift or tummy tuck. The process involves removing excess skin from the abdominal area and tightening the remaining skin. This surgery is ideally suitable for people who do not have excess fat deposits but rather too much skin hanging from the abdomen. Women, post-pregnancy, and delivery, often go for abdominoplasty. Patients recover in 2-3 weeks after the surgery.

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is carried out to reshape the nose to bring it into balance with the rest of the face. Either the overall size of the nose can be reduced or certain areas of the nose are refined for a better appearance. In some cases, such as when the person has a deviated septum, rhinoplasty is found to be improving the breathing patterns. A bit of bruising can happen in the process but it will usually fade over the next 10 days on its own.


No matter how complicated certain procedures may appear to be, they are simple and absolutely painless when conducted by reputed plastic surgeons in the field. The side effects can be reduced to a minimum by taking the right precautions.
