Who Is A Cosmetic Surgeon?
A cosmetic surgeon is a person who is skilled in medical and surgical procedures which enhance the appearance of a person. The surgeon can carry out cosmetic procedures on different parts of the body, head and neck.
Cosmetic procedures are considered to be elective since the body parts which are being treated are fully functional. Since the procedures are elective, the cosmetic surgeon will want to ensure that his patients are psychologically sound when making the decision to go ahead with any procedure. Mostly, the results of the procedures are permanent therefore it is best for the patient to make a sound decision.
Body Lift Procedures
There are various surgical procedures which are commonly carried out on the body by a cosmetic surgeon. The tummy tuck is a procedure that tightens the muscles and the skin that is around the stomach area. This is done by getting rid of excess fat and skin. Other procedures that tighten the body include a general body lift, a thigh and arm lift and a buttock augmentation.
Breast augmentation surgery is used to increase the size and restore the fullness of the breasts by the use of breast implants. This procedure is popular for women whose breasts have lost volume after pregnancy or a big weight loss. Breast augmentation can also be done by transferring fat from another area of the body such as the thigh to the breasts.
Sagging breasts are best treated through a breast lift which tightens the skin and raises the breasts giving them a youthful shape. There are women who go through a breast reduction when the large size of their breasts interferes with their lifestyles.
