Plastic surgery is a rapidly growing, popular type of cosmetic enhancement. In 2016, 17.1 million plastic surgery procedures were conducted nationwide. These range from reconstructive procedures such as tumor removal and laceration repair to minimally invasive procedures like Botox, fillers, and laser hair removal, to surgeries like facelifts and liposuction. Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group offers all these procedures and more. We’re often asked about our most common types of cosmetic procedures.
Most common plastic surgery procedures:
Facelifts address signs of aging in the face and neck, most importantly sagging skin and wrinkles. The procedure is performed under sedation or anesthesia. Your surgeon makes a series of incisions to reshape your face using a combination of fat transfers, implants, and filler injections.
4) Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
If you experience sagging skin, wrinkles, or bags around your eyes, eyelid surgery can restore a bright, youthful look. Though a series of incisions, your surgeon removes excess fat and wrinkles.
Also known as a “nose job,” nose reshaping sculpts your nose into a shape that’s harmonious with the rest of your features. It also addresses breathing problems by correcting structural defects in your nose.
Also known as “lipo,” this procedure removes fat deposits under the skin, allowing your surgeon to shape your body contours to give you a slimmer, more harmonious figure. Liposuction should be used only for contouring, not as a weight loss technique. We recommend reducing fat through a healthy diet and exercise before seeking this procedure.
This has been the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure for the past ten years. Breast augmentation increases your breast size by using a combination of fat transfers and saline or silicone implants. It can be used after pregnancy to restore lost breast volume, after a mastectomy or injury for breast reconstruction, or for simple aesthetic enhancement.
