Plastic Surgery

Plasric Surgery

Plastic surgery procedures can sculpt or enhance nearly any area of the body. Your ears, nose, thighs, arms, breasts, and abs can all be reshaped through cosmetic surgery. In the Weston and Pembroke Pines area, such surgeries are popular among people who are interested in improving a particular body part looks.

Is plastic surgery right for me?

You should consider surgery if you are dissatisfied with the way a particular body area looks. For instance, if you have lost a lot of weight, leaving hanging skin around your midsection, a tummy tuck may be right for you. If you’ve suffered a lifetime of teasing over big ears that stick out too far from your head, consider otoplasty surgery. Perhaps you’ve always felt that your breasts were too small for your frame size; if so, breast augmentation may be the solution. Common reasons for Weston and Pembroke Pines area patients to seek plastic surgery include counteracting the physical effects of weight fluctuations, aging, or pregnancy, or as a solution to long-term unhappiness with the way a specific body part is shaped.

What types of facial plastic surgery are there?

Many plastic surgery procedures are designed to reshape facial areas. Some focus on specific facial features. For instance, rhinoplasty (a nose job), otoplasty (ear surgery), chin augmentation, or ‘gummy smile’ surgery are common ways to change the size or contours of these facial features. Other techniques, like laser skin resurfacing, provide a subtle enhancement in facial appearance. Many facial surgeries can counteract sagging skin and wrinkles resulting from aging; these options include a brow lift, mini facelift, neck lift, or blepharoplasty (eyelid) surgery.

What types of body contouring surgeries are there?

Many plastic surgery techniques are intended to sculpt a specific portion of the body by removing excess fat or skin. Frequently, such surgeries focus on the midsection, which often gains excess skin as a result of weight loss, aging, or pregnancy. These plastic surgeries include a tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, or body lift. Other options include an arm lift, a thigh lift, and liposuction. While these procedures are commonly performed on men as well as women, some techniques, such as a mommy makeover or labiaplasty surgery, are specially designed for women.

What types of breast enhancement surgeries are there?

Many plastic surgery techniques offer the opportunity to reshape your best. The most popular plastic surgery technique in the world is breast augmentation, which increases breast size through the insertion of breast implants. The breasts can also be made smaller via breast reduction, or lifted to reduce the effects of gravity, with breast lift surgery. A breast lift or reduction can be combined with an implant for breast contouring.

What types of plastic surgery can men undergo?

Many of these procedures are commonly performed on men as well as women. In particular, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and liposuction, which removes small pockets of excess fat, are popular among men in the Weston and Pembroke Pines area. Men can also undergo gynecomastia surgery, which removes excess breast tissue to achieve a flatter, more masculine chest appearance, and liposuction of the waistline is also a very popular procedure for males.
