In 2014 alone, almost 16 million cosmetic surgeries were performed in the United States. With different procedures from liposuction to implants, more people tend to reshape different aspects of their bodies using cosmetic surgery. Also, the numbers show that more than 90% of patients are women. Even if there are many types of plastic surgeries, we can highlight the ones that are requested most of the time. Breast augmentation Breast augmentation is one of the main procedures requested right now. A breast augmentation can be made either using implants or liposuction for abnormally-sized size. Being of use even today, patients can choose either saline solution implants or silicone gel implants. The difference between them is that saline implants are much safer in the case of rupture, while silicone gel implants tend to last much longer than saline ones. Also, saline implants are much cheaper compared to silicone ones. Abdominoplasty Also referred to as tummy tuck, abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that will help to remove any extra fat deposits or excess skin around your abdomen. There are six types of tummy tucks: partial, complete, extended, high lateral tension tummy tuck, floating abdominoplasty, and circumferential abdominoplasty. The names are given with strict referral to the area or the length of the incision that are made for getting the desired result. Arm, hip, buttock or thigh lift and augmentation This specific procedure will reshape either your arms, hips, buttocks or thighs. The only difference is that if for all of them we can use liposuction or fat transfer, for hip and buttock augmentation we can also use implants. Unlike breast implants that use saline or silicone fillers, buttocks and hip implants are made of a different consistency of silicone. It is called a gluteal solution and is a bit harder than normal silicone, as there is more pressure that applies to the hip and buttock area overall. Liposuction As you have probably noticed by now, liposuction was mentioned in almost all of the procedures. This is because liposuction is widely used to reshape your body when dealing with plastic surgery. During liposuction, a special device called a cannula is used to dismantle small amounts of fat and then suctioned through a tube. In general, all plastic surgeries have a very low risk of side effects or complications and success rate, without any major complications is registered in most of the cases in the last five years.
