Medical advances have brought plastic surgery a long way. Now, there are dozens of procedures that can be completed that will not only enhance the way you look but the way you feel as well. Of these procedures, there are three that keep plastic surgeons especially busy:
- Liposuction is the removal of extra fat. It is completed using a vacuum-like device that sucks up fat in unwanted areas such as the stomach and hips. The majority of patients that seek liposuction are women. In 2005, 89% of patients asking for liposuction were women.
- Rhinoplasty is more commonly known as a nose job. This type of procedure is exceedingly popular and is more often requested by women. However, some men do ask for rhinoplasties after suffering a sports injury or damage obtained in a car accident.
- And finally, breast augmentation. In 2005 alone there were over 291,000 breast augmentations completed in the United States. This is a simple procedure wherein the doctor places two silicone- or saline-filled implants into the chest of the patient to increase the size of her breasts.
