Plastic surgery has made many advances in the last several years, and new techniques and procedures are attracting the attention of women and men worldwide. What was once viewed as just a service for the wealthy or movie stars is now considered a safe and affordable service for all.
Deciding to have a cosmetic surgical procedure is a private decision. Consulting with a reputable surgeon gives you the opportunity to discuss the various options you have and aids in the decision-making process.
Several different cosmetic procedures are available that enhance the facial features and help define or balance the body. Let’s look at 3 such cosmetic procedures below.
Blepharoplasty is plastic surgery for the eyelids. Its purpose is to eliminate the baggy skin under the eyes or it can remove layers of skin from the upper eyelid. What causes eyelids to bag or sag? The aging process on the skin causes it to lose its tightness and elasticity. As a result, the folds of skin above and/or below the eye begin to wrinkle up or sag down. For some people, this excess skin actually hinders the vision as added skin droops down on the eyes. Eliminating this excess skin allows the person to see better and look great. This procedure enhances the eye area making the skin look tighter and less saggy.
If you have worked hard losing weight, yet still have some stubborn fat that will not go away, then cool sculpting may be an option for you. Coolsculpting is a revolutionary procedure that removes fat cells without an invasive surgery. In the past when people wanted fat removed, they had to undergo liposuction. Now, through coolsculpting fat cells are frozen and eliminated, all without any incisions.
Bellafill Dermal Filler
Bellafill Dermal Filler is a collagen filler that is injected into the facial area around the mouth. It lifts the skin around the mouth thereby reducing the smile lines on either side. This procedure is often used to reduce wrinkles around the mouth but it is also effective for acne scarring. The great news about the Bellafill Dermal Filler is that it is a permanent solution for the smile lines because it is non-resorbable. Other fillers are absorbed and therefore need future reinjections.
