Cosmetic procedures are becoming quite commonplace in recent years. People are beginning to realize they can make changes to their appearances and bodies for the better. It's empowering to realize you don't have to settle for what you were born with. While no surgical procedure will automatically erase all self-criticism, it is possible to improve your outlook by addressing physical issues that bother you. Read on for an overview of plastic surgery types that can lessen your insecurities.


One of the most common reasons many individuals list for seeking the assistance of a top plastic surgeon is to get rid of unwanted fat. That pesky abdominal fat bulge that can be impossible to shed through diet and exercise is often the prime target. Liposuction can address this type of fat to help provide you with a sleeker, smoother and slimmer silhouette. Other common treatment areas include thighs, buttocks, upper arms and back. There are two popular types of liposuction. Tumescent lipo infuses saline solution, a drug for constricting blood vessels and an anesthetic into the treatment area. Then, a tube known as a cannula is used to suction a precise amount of fat and the liquid out. Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction uses ultrasonic energy to break up the fat that is then removed with a cannula. You can expect to spend at least a few days recovering, depending on the area treated.

Breast Augmentation

If you were born flat chested, this could be something that has caused you great stress throughout your life. Another common issue many women experience are breasts of noticeably different sizes. A skilled plastic surgeon can sit down with you to determine what size cup would be most flattering for your body shape, taking other factors into account such as lifestyle. Saline or silicone breast implants are both options, depending on your preference. Silicone is no longer considered to be as dangerous as it was once thought to be and is seeing a resurgence in popularity. Most recovery takes between one and two weeks, so you'll need to be prepared to take some time away from work and other obligations.

Breast Reduction

For those whose breasts are quite large or disproportionate in size to their bodies, a breast reduction can provide considerable relief. Extremely large breasts can cause just as much emotional struggle as smaller ones. They can also cause a great deal of physical pain due to their size and weight. A breast reduction can have an incredibly positive effect on your health, resulting in improved posture and a reduction in back pain. This surgery is often paid for by insurance companies. You will likely need at least a couple weeks to recuperate after having a breast reduction.


The clinical name for a tummy tuck is abdominoplasty. This surgical procedure can do wonders for the self=esteem of those who may have excess skin around the abdominal area. This hanging skin can most certainly heighten your insecurities. A tummy tuck can remove that excess skin and tighten what remains, giving you a much sleeker appearance. Abdominoplasty is often sought by patients who have lost a great deal of weight or whose bodies may not have bounced back after pregnancy. It may be a couple of weeks before you can return to regular activities after this surgery.


If you've felt insecure about a large nose or one that has a shape that is displeasing to you, you've probably considered getting a nose job. Clinically known as rhinoplasty, this surgical procedure can reduce and reshape the nose in order to balance it aesthetically with the rest of your face. There are definitely certain questions you should ask yourself before undergoing any plastic surgery. Rhinoplasty will significantly alter the face you've seen in the mirror for your whole life. If you're ready for such a transformation, rhinoplasty can provide you with an enhanced appearance that can truly boost your confidence.


These are just a few popular plastic surgery types to consider. Be sure to take time for self-reflection and do your research in order to find a practitioner you are comfortable with. When you're ready, you'll likely find great satisfaction in choosing to take control of your body and appearance.
