Cosmetic Surgery Techniques : Which One Suits You

Cosmetic surgery has increased dramatically in popularity over the past 10 years. Attitudes have changed as well -- more and more people are turning to cosmetic surgery. It has undergone significant technological and conceptual changes in recent years. The conceptual changes have altered approaches to facial aging, including approaches to the forehead, eyelids, and lower face. Technological changes include the increasing use of the laser for facial cosmetic surgery and minimally invasive techniques for face, breast, and body-contouring surgery.

Successful cosmetic surgery won't make a dramatic change in your looks. The old time face lift that rendered women flat faced and void of expression is, thankfully, almost obsolete. If it looks like cosmetic surgery, it's bad cosmetic surgery-period. The new techniques yield a subtle result: ideally, people won't be able to quite figure our what's different about you. They, all say you look rested or ask if you've changed your makeup. If you are thinking about more than one procedure, it makes sense to have both recovery time. Besides,when you've been through it once, you might not have the nerve to go back.


Women with high cheekbones age well, because the cheekbone helps to anchor the skin that would otherwise sag and fold around the middle of the face. For this reason, and because of the influence of glamorous celebrity role models with good bone structure- Faye Dunaways, Anjelica Huston, Keith Carradine, Arsenio Hall-cheeks implants are gaining in popularity. The implants them self are made of hard rubber or plastic that resembles a dental retainer without the wire . They are inserted through an incision inside your mouth or through a cut make a round face more angular and widen a long, narrow face into an oval.

Preparation.Try to be well reset and in the best possible health before the surgery . Avoid asprin and vitamin E for three to four weeks before surgery. Asprin thins the blood and can cause bleeding after surgery; Vitamin E interferes with clotting and can also cause bleeding.

Healing. Up to 10 days with residual sensitive lasting up to eight weeks.

Downside. The swelling and bruising last 7 to 10 days, and the area around the implant remains sensitive for six to eight weeks. If your face is asymmetrical going into surgery, you'll come out with high cheekbones-but they'll still be asymmetrical.


In the infancy of this procedure, living bone or cartiage was grafted over the chin to build up a weak or receding chin. Now that the technique has grown more sophisticated,doctors use the same rubber or plastic used in cheek implants. The chin implant is inserted through an incision in the skin under the chin or through a cut inside the lower lip. The latter. obviously, doesn't leave a scar, but some doctors believe there's a greater risk of infection that way.

Preparation.Try to be well reset and in the best possible health before the surgery . Avoid asprin and vitamin E for three to four weeks before surgery. Asprin thins the blood and can cause bleeding after surgery; Vitamin E interferes with clotting and can also cause bleeding.

Healing. Up to 10 days , with residual sensitive lasting up to eight weeks.

Downside. Sometimes the implants shifts as it heals and appear crooked. Occasionally, implants can erode the bone of the chin, and you'll end up worse off than when you started, with a receding chin and damage to your own bone.

What is minimally invasive surgery?

For many surgical procedures, the emphasis has shifted from traditional open surgery to the use of less invasive means. Minimally invasive surgery is done with the aid of a viewing scope and specially designed surgical instruments. The scope allows the surgeon to perform major surgery through several tiny openings without making a large incision.
These minimally invasive alternatives usually result in less pain, scarring, and recovery time for the patient, as well as reduced healthcare costs. Almost everything from open-heart operations to vasectomies are now done with minimally invasive methods.

What is minimally invasive plastic surgery?

Surgeons are discovering more uses for minimally invasive techniques, including heart surgery, hysterectomies, and prostate cancer treatment. In plastic surgery, the term minimally invasive refers to the use of newer technologies to perform procedures that once required extensive surgery and recovery time. Today's plastic surgeons have a variety of tools and techniques available that make procedures such as face lifts and eye lifts more accessible and affordable.

Laser surgery

Lasers can now quickly remove the outer layer of the skin. They tighten the skin, which leads to smoothening and clearing of brown spots and large pores. Lasers also can improve wrinkles, fine lines, forehead creasing, and crow's feet.

Laser skin resurfacing/facelift

Laser surgery can be used for skin resurfacing similar to the way chemical peeling and dermabrasion have been used in the past. When used for skin resurfacing, the result is equivalent to an intermediate depth chemical peel with less risk of complications. It is a particularly good technique in the eyelid, crow's feet, and forehead region. It also is quite effective in the cheek area. When the lines around the mouth are particularly deep, the laser peel may require a second treatment.

Eye lift surgery

Eye lifts are among the most commonly requested procedures by both men and women. Drooping of the eyelids can make a person look tired and/or older.
Lower eyelid bagging usually is the result of protrusion of the fat that naturally cushions the eye. This fat is held in place by a membrane that weakens as we age, allowing the fat to become visible as a "bag." Lower eyelid bags can be corrected in most cases without any external incisions or visible scars by using the laser.
The skin folds of the upper eyelid tend to increase and droop with age. This problem also can be corrected with a laser-assisted upper eyelid lift. Laser eye lift surgery involves little bleeding and bruising, and usually requires a short recovery period.

"Lunchtime" procedures

Today's plastic surgeons also provide options for correcting certain signs of aging, such as crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles, in small steps, without surgery. Because these procedures are done over a period of short office visits, these mini-treatments are sometimes referred to as "lunchtime" procedures.
