5 Different Types Of Plastic-Surgery
1.) Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation consists of inserting a silicon bag under the breast and filling it with salt water. The cut where the silicon is placed can be made on various areas around the breast. The size of the implant is mainly due to the patient’s personal preference. Asking your doctor for a specific cup size is not easy as the size differs from manufacturer to manufacturer. How loose or tight someone wears there bra and how much breast tissue is already present are other factors to consider. There are some very well known plastic surgeons in Cape Town who specialize in breast augmentation.
2.) Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is perfect for people that have bags or wrinkles under their eyes. This procedure reduces the bagginess from your lower eyelids and removes any excess skin around the upper eyelid. Any excess muscle, skin or fat around any areas of the eye will be removed as well. This is great plastic surgery for elderly patients whose eye lids are starting to droop. This drooping will eventually obstruct your vision.
3.) Facial Plastic-Surgery
Facial plastic surgery is the process of removing excess skin to make the face appear younger. As one gets older your face starts to lose its elasticity, muscle tone as well as fat. The skin as well as fatty tissues are lifted off the underlying muscle and pulled as far forward as is necessary. The underlying muscle is then tightened. The wound is closed up with skin staples and a drain is left in the wound to remove excess blood then bandages are applied.
4.) Facial Implants
This form of plastic surgery is used to enhance certain features of your face such as your cheeks or jaw line. Your facial contours are greatly enhanced when using this type of plastic-surgery. You need to make sure you are in good physical and mental health before proceeding. This process is not going to completely change the way you look. It’s merely there to enhance your current features. Plastic surgeons in Cape Town are well known for delivering great results for patients wanting facial implants.
5.) Lip Augmentation
Lip augmentation can reduce fine lines or remove wrinkles around your lips. Lip augmentation is not going to give you a total reconstruction, but more of an enhancement similar to facial implant plastic surgery. It’s important to be in good health before having this surgery. You should not have surgery if you have any of the following:
- Cold Sores
- Diseases such as lupus or diabetes
- Lip scaring
- Blood clotting problems
