Top Five Cosmetic Surgery Procedures – for WomenMonday, October 22, 2012 Mary Anne Velasco
Cosmetic surgery is available at clinics across the UK and is popular with many women. Females of all ages choose to go under the knife to correct a wide range of flaws and ailments – but what is everyone having done? Let’s take a look at some of the most popular surgeries:
Breasts are an important part of a woman’s anatomy, which could explain why breast enlargement surgery is the most-popular type of cosmetic surgery [http://www.transforminglives.co.uk/breast-enlargement.html]. This surgical procedure can change the size, shape and look of the chest and is often used to improve the breasts post-pregnancy. While some women take their assets up a cup-size or two, others seek a more dramatic look and transform their appearance completely.
According to The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), blepharoplasty surgery was carried out on 5,373 women in 2011 alone. It’s used to remove dark bags underneath the eyes and can correct sagging eyelids – making it a popular procedure. There are three main types of blepharoplasty surgery available, but all are designed to give you a younger, fresher appearance.
As we age, the skin around our face and neck can sag. That’s why many women choose to have a facelift. This tightens the skin around the face and neck and can leave you with a firmer, more youthful appearance. Patients who have undergone other facial surgery, particularly blepharoplasty, often choose to have a facelift too, as tauter skin on the forehead can also improve the appearance of the eyes.
While some women opt for a breast augmentation to increase the size of their chest [http://www.transforminglives.co.uk/breast-enlargement-faqs.html], others choose to have their assets reduced. Why? Well, because heavy breasts can cause a wealth of back and neck problems as well as a host of skin irritations. During a breast reduction, excess skin, fat and glandular tissue is removed and the breasts are reshaped to make them smaller. From time-to-time, plastic surgery is also used to realign the nipple with the middle of the upper arm.
There are many different types of nose surgery, but rhinoplasty is the most-popular. It involves a full correction of the bridge, nose-tip and nostrils and was the surgery of choice for 3,475 women in 2011 according to BAAPS. While this type of surgery can correct many flaws, patients are advised to think carefully before going under the knife as the nose is one of the most-defining features of the face.
Surgery can improve change the way you look for the better, but would you have any work done?
