Common cosmetic and plastic surgery techniques

Choosing to have cosmetic or plastic surgery is a life-changing step for many people. People who choose to have cosmetic surgery do so to improve both appearance and confidence.

Read this guide on common cosmetic and plastic surgery techniques.

Ear Pinning

Ear pinning (otoplasty) is a straightforward procedure for people whose ears protrude. In most cases this issue is usually fixed in childhood. But otoplasties are not available to children under five. This is because their ears are still developing. Protruding ears can make children self-conscious. Corrective surgery is beneficial to improving their personal and social development. Doctors remove cartilage from the ears before positioning ears closer to the head.

Lip Filler

Some people would love a plumper pout. Their lips may look thinner than they wish them to be. One of the most common solutions to this problem is to inject collagen into the lips. This makes them plumper and more colourful. It is best to consult a doctor before considering such a procedure.  A minority of people are allergic to the collagen used in lip filler surgery.

The plumper effect of the injections usually lasts for around three months and then wears off.

Crow’s Feet Removal

Crow’s feet are wrinkles which appear at the corner of the eyes and mouth. There are several reasons why crow’s feet begin to form. Sleeping on the side of the face for a long time can cause crow’s feet. Lines and wrinkles also happen through different facial expressions when people laugh or frown.

Smoking and exposure to strong sunlight are two causes of crow’s feet.  Avoid this by abstaining from smoking and sunbathing.

A straightforward laser procedure can remove crows feet. This tightens the skin around the affected areas.

Breast Enlargement

Some women may feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts. They elect to have enlargement surgery. Implants can be either saline or silicone material. Always check credentials of the qualified surgeon you choose. Make sure you get regular checkups if you have breast enlargements (or reductions). These will ensure you don’t have any ongoing health issues as a result of your surgery.

Birthmark Removal

Birthmarks are skin lesions which appear when someone is born. These birthmarks are often dark in colour and are most noticeable if on the face. Birthmarks can be painlessly removed through a simple laser treatment. This leaves the affected area of the skin free of blemishes.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck lifts the skin around the stomach to remove folds of fat. A tummy tuck will make the stomach flatter. This type of surgery is popular for people who have recently lost weight or have loose skin due to a pregnancy.
