Did you know that over 14.5 million cosmetic procedures are performed every year? The majority of these procedures are minimally invasive measures such as lip augmentation surgery. Often, people experience insecurities about getting plastic surgery. Is it a sign of vanity? Will I regret it? Is it a waste of money? Studies show that the majority of people are happy with the results and process of their surgeries. Here are three common types of plastic surgery, as well as what you should consider.

Lip Augmentation Surgery

Did you know that the majority of patients who opt for lip augmentation are over the age of 40? For people, usually women, who want fuller lips, cosmetic surgery offers a reprieve from the thinning lips of time. In most cases, a small needle is used inject materials into the lips. Fat, restylane, and artecoll are popular options for lip plumping. Fat is removed from another part of the patient’s body through liposuction and placed into the lips. Most patients report being satisfied, and say they would go back again. Some studies have shown that fat transfers last longest.

Breast Augmentation Enlargement

People like to stereotype that breast implants are the surgery of teenagers hoping to become movie stars. In reality, though, the average patient is 34 years old, and only looking to go up a cup size or two. This is actually a fairly common procedure, during which the board certified plastic surgeon will insert a saline or silicone implant above or below the pectoral muscle. Can you regain confidence with breast augmentation? For many women, especially those who naturally have almost no breasts, or who have had a mastectomy, the answer is yes. Women overall report feeling more beautiful and confident after the surgery. That doesn’t mean it’s the right answer for everyone, but for some, it will be a good choice.

Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgery Procedure

Did you know that about 243,000 people decide to get their nose reshaped every year? There are many people who feel uncomfortable with the shape or size of their nose, and for some, this feeling of insecurity never goes away, even as they age. During this procedure, a doctor will cut into the nose and remove, rearrange, break or shave bone and tissue depending on the new shape the nose needs to take. For people looking to fill in rather than take away, there are also options for semi permanent and permanent injections.
