Cosmetic surgery can be used to achieve a desired appearance. It is different to plastic surgery, which is used to repair or reconstruct damaged tissue and skin. For men and women, popular surgical procedures include breast reduction, and an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). This is usually performed to reduce loose skin after weight loss or pregnancy. Alternatively, cosmetic fillers and face lifts are used to treat signs of ageing. There is also a growing demand for cosmetic dentistry, with treatments including veneers and teeth whitening.
Cosmetic surgery can boost your self-confidence and self-esteem. But before going ahead with cosmetic surgery, it is important to speak to a specialist first. They can provide with your more information about the procedure and what you can expect after surgery.
The most common reasons why you might want to have cosmetic surgery include:
- Signs of ageing: Ageing is a natural process. As you become older, the fat in your skin can lose volume and move downwards. The skin on your face can also become loose and start to sag. It can cause deep folds around your nose, mouth and neck. If you’re not comfortable with the changes that ageing can bring, you could benefit from a face lift procedure.
- Loose skin on your stomach: Excess skin on your stomach can be caused by pregnancy or significant weight loss. An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, can help remove excess skin from your stomach.
- Breast enlargement: If you feel unhappy about the shape or size of your breasts, a breast enlargement could help boost your self-esteem. But it’s important to speak to a specialist about your expectations regarding the results and risks involved.
- Nose reshaping: Breathing issues, feeling dissatisfied about the appearance of your nose, or an unsuccessful nose job, are all reasons why you might want to change the shape of your nose. This procedure is known as a nose job or a rhinoplasty.
Our specialist Consultants at BMI Healthcare hospitals will discuss your concern and appropriate treatment with you. After your consultation, your Consultant will give you time to decide if you would still like to go ahead with the treatment.
During a facelift, your surgeon will make incisions from the top of your hairline to the front of your ear. If your chin is being lifted, your surgeon will also make incisions under your skin. Excess skin is then removed from your face, and your skin is then pulled upwards and stitched into place. Your surgeon may redistribute the fat and tissue in your face.
An abdominoplasty usually involves removing excess skin and fat from your stomach, and tightening your stomach muscles. This can help improve the appearance of your stomach.
Breast enlargement surgery is also known as breast augmentation surgery. Your surgeon will make an incision next to or under your breast to insert your implant. The procedure typically takes about 90 minutes, and you will be able to go home the same day or the following day.
Your surgeon can remove cartilage and bone from your nose to reduce the size of your nose. However, if you would like your nose to be larger (nose augmentation), cartilage from your ears can be removed to build your ideal nose. The shape of your nose and nostrils can also be altered by breaking your nose bone and rearranging your cartilage.
