Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat from certain areas of the body by suction. It is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure in the world.
The procedure lasts between 20 and 90 minutes. Very fine cannulas are used to suck out excess fat. The incisions are very discreet.
However, liposuction is not a miracle cure for excess weight. After the operation, a healthy diet and regular exercise should be followed.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that consists of fitting breast implants to increase the size of the breast. In some cases, this can also correct a slight breast ptosis, especially when the loss of volume is limited and consecutive to a pregnancy or weight loss. When the sagging is important, the surgeon will advise to do a breast plastic surgery at the same time. When the nipple is lower than the submammary fold, the breast must also be lifted. When the desired increase is not very important, about one bra cup, lipomodelling is sometimes considered.
Blepharoplasty is the medical term for eyelid surgery. The aim of this surgical procedure is to reduce excess skin or fat that makes the eyes look heavy. The procedure can be performed on the upper or lower eyelid or on both parts simultaneously.
The technique of blepharoplasty is based on the removal of part of the excess skin in order to tighten the treated eyelids. On the upper eyelids, the drooping skin is tightened to smooth the skin when the eyes wrinkle. The surgical procedure on the lower eyelid consists of eliminating the bags and sometimes the dark circles that give the impression of being constantly tired.
Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and a small amount of fat from the abdomen and to tighten the skin. Patients who undergo this procedure are usually people who have been overweight or obese and have lost weight rapidly. Some women may also undergo the procedure after pregnancy. Abdominoplasty is also available to men following a significant weight loss or liposuction.
Abdominoplasty is often motivated by the discomfort that this excess skin can cause: it can hinder mobility, damage self-esteem and even lead to a rejection of one’s own body in certain cases.
A breast reduction is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the size of the breast and make it more proportional to the rest of the body. A breast reduction is useful in some cases to relieve psychological or physical discomfort due to one of its symptoms:
For these reasons, breast reduction can be performed even for girls of 16 years of age in order to avoid possible complications such as back pain or arthritis.
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure to change the shape and or size of the nose. It should not be confused with septoplasty, which is based on the treatment of the deviation of the nasal septum. However, both surgical procedures can be performed at the same time, and we call it a rhinoseptoplasty.
In general, simple rhinoplasty is used for aesthetic reasons. However, it is sometimes necessary to resort to rhinoseptoplasty to correct a nasal obstruction. This type of surgery can also treat all the associated symptoms, such as breathing difficulties. Here, the operation does not focus on the aesthetic improvement of the nose, although the surgeon intervenes to change the morphology of the nose with the possibility of reducing a hump or straightening the nasal bridge.
Rhytidectomy, or facelift, is a procedure to improve the appearance of the face and reduce the signs of aging through a surgical approach. This procedure improves the appearance of the forehead, cheeks and neck.
Typically, women become candidates for a rhytidectomy or neck lift around the age of 40. Senescence or the aging process varies from person to person and being ready for this surgery depends not only on genetic makeup, but also on environmental factors such as sun exposure. Therefore, if you are aware of your skin, you can help counteract the effects of aging. Unfortunately, we can’t do anything about the genes (at least not yet), but what we can control are the environmental factors.
With time, pregnancies, but also weight changes, the breast ends up sagging. Ptosed breasts are victims of a fall of the mammary gland towards the lower part of the breasts. The submammary fold is then hidden. This phenomenon can occur at any age and in women with huge or small breasts.
For women whose sagging breasts are a source of psychological discomfort, there is a solution: a breast lift. The aim of the breast lift is to restore the shape of the breasts and to lift the chest. The operation also allows the removal of excess skin and the re-draping of the breasts. The result of a breast lift is immediately visible after your operation. The breast is rounder, the breasts are firmer and symmetrically positioned higher.
With age, wrinkles appear on the face and eyebrows tend to fall off. When this phenomenon is particularly marked, it tends to age and give a more tired or severe appearance. In this case, a forehead lift is quite effective in correcting these aging disgraces. The procedure can also have beneficial effects on the patient who feels more beautiful and potentially more confident. The brow lift can be performed either through a classic incision, by endoscopy or through mini-incisions.
Overall, the principle is to detach the tissues over the entire width of the face, then to weaken the muscles of the region to be treated in order to reduce the wrinkles for which they are responsible. The detached tissues are then re-tensioned for a beneficial effect on the sagging of the forehead and eyebrows as well as on crow’s feet.
