As summer turns to fall, patients start to think about the plastic surgery procedures they have not had a chance to undergo yet due to time constraints or waiting until it better fits their budget. When it comes to plastic surgery in the fall (or any other time of year), many patients are looking for a confidence boost by gaining a better contour to the body or rejuvenating the look of the face. Let’s take a look at some of the hottest plastic surgery trends for the coming months as well as the changes they can make to the body of the patient.
Abdominoplasty, which is also known as a tummy tuck, address a stomach that is sagging or bulging due to weight gain or loss, genetics, or pregnancy. If a regular diet and exercise routine will not improve the look of the tummy, abdominoplasty can be performed to eliminate and reduce excess skin and fat as well as restore muscles that have been separated or weakened. The result is an abdominal profile that has a smoother look that is also firmer and flatter.
The desire to gain an improved contour to the body is a big incentive for many patients before they take part in fall festivities and activities. There are multiple options available to the public to gain a better body contour and one of the most popular is liposuction. During liposuction, the surgeon uses a cannula to address stubborn, hard to remove fat via a suction technique. Some of the most commonly treated areas of the body include the abdomen, arms, butt, hips, thighs, and neck. Liposuction is performed on these areas of the body to eliminate fat cells, but it is not a weight loss method.
The nose is one of the most visible areas on the body and some people want to make changes in the size or shape of their nose, There are a number of benefits that can occur after rhinoplasty and they include a smaller look to the nose, a more refined tip, a removal of a bump or indentation in the nose, a more symmetrical appearance with the rest of the face, and even an improvement in the breathing ability of the patient. Rhinoplasty, AKA a nose job, can be performed as open rhinoplasty or closed rhinoplasty so the patient should consult with the surgeon to determine the best technique to achieve the desired results.
It is not just the front side of the body that patients want to improve through cosmetic surgery. A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) helps a person to gain a booty with a greater size and shape that is also rounder once the final results are visible. A Brazilian butt lift uses fat from the body of the actual patient to achieve the desired increase in size and shape. The fat is removed from another area of the body through the use of liposuction. The fat that is removed from the body is then processed and purified so it can be injected into the backside of the patient. It is important to remember that not all of the transferred fat will survive the procedure, so patients need to have realistic expectations entering into the BBL process.
For patients who need help addressing sagging breasts, a breast lift, which is also known as mastopexy, is able to give the breasts an appearance that is natural, youthful, and lifted. A breast lift can reverse the effects that happen because of a person getting older or a large amount of weight loss. In addition, the breasts might need some help gaining a more rejuvenated and youthful look after a woman gives birth to one or multiple children.
The breast augmentation process can be performed using breast implants or fat transfer. The goal is to give the breasts an augmented size or shape that is larger in appearance. In addition, the breasts can start to look more rounded in appearance and enjoy a greater amount of symmetry. The breast implant process is performed by placing implants under the chest muscle or behind the breast tissue. Breast augmentation via fat transfer is when unwanted fat is removed from another area of the body so it can be transferred (injected) into the breasts. The transferred fat is removed using liposuction and then processed and purified before it is placed in the body to provide a greater augmentation to the breasts along with a more voluptuous look to the breasts and body.
Patients who are interested in undergoing any of the procedures discussed in this article should schedule an appointment with an experienced and board-certified surgeon who has provided proven results when treating patients. The doctor can examine the patient to make sure the person is an ideal candidate for plastic surgery and even show “before and after” photos of actual patients so the interested party can have a better idea of the results that can be expected after the procedure.
