No matter how confident a woman is, there’s always something she believes can be improved about her appearance. For some women, it may be their nose or their chin. For others, it might be their hair or skin. While many women are content to simply accept these flaws, others may choose to undergo cosmetic procedures in order to improve their appearance. Here are four cosmetic procedures most women have considered:
1. Nose reshaping
For women who are unhappy with the shape of their nose, they may choose to undergo a nose reshaping procedure in order to improve it. While surgeons can perform this surgery through invasive means, many opt for minimally invasive nasal reduction instead. The recovery time is faster and the risks are reduced significantly by choosing this method.
Many women feel like their noses are too big or it’s not proportionate to the rest of their face. Surgeons can change the size, shape, and appearance of a woman’s nose by either shortening it or making it smaller in width. During this procedure, surgeons remove cartilage from the middle layer of the nose. They then make certain changes to make the nose appear more symmetric.
When all is said and done, women who undergo this procedure can expect their noses to look natural and proportional to their face after the surgery. The only telltale signs that something was done are likely to be fading bruising or small scars on either side of the nose. While there is still a chance that the surgery may need to be redone, the majority of women notice an immediate difference in their appearance. If someone is unhappy with their results they can undergo revision rhinoplasty and have the procedure done again. This is most often done because of an unsatisfying result rather than a complication during the surgery.
2. Breast augmentation
Women who are unhappy with their breast size can undergo a breast augmentation procedure. During this process, surgeons insert saline or silicone implants into the bust area in order to make them appear fuller or more symmetrical. This procedure is very common and is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in North America.
Surgeons can create a breast augmentation incision under the breast area, around the nipple area, or near the armpit area before inserting implants into either of these incisions. While there may be some scarring, it often isn’t very noticeable. Over the course of a week or two, this incision will fade and become fainter.
The benefit that women get from having a breast augmentation is that their breasts appear fuller and more youthful. In turn, they feel better about themselves because they have achieved their ideal body image through surgery. The recovery period is quick and simple, and women can expect to be back to their normal routines within a few weeks after surgery.
3. Eye lift
For women who have sagging skin under their eyes or dark circles, an eye lift may improve the look of these problems. For this procedure, surgeons pull up any excess skin under a woman’s eyes. They then stitch the skin back together in a way that makes it appear smoother and more youthful.
There are also other procedures that can be done along with an eye lift. These include removing excess fat from these areas, removing wrinkles, or tightening muscles around the eyelids. In turn, this will make a woman appear more vibrant and youthful.
Surgeons can perform an eye lift under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. There will likely be some bruising, swelling, and discomfort for a few days after surgery. Most of these side effects are temporary though, with the majority fading before long.
4. Hair transplantation
Many women are unhappy with their hairline due to hair loss. If they are also unhappy with the distribution of their hair, they may choose to undergo a hair transplantation procedure. There are several types of this cosmetic surgery including Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), and Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP). This cosmetic surgery is usually performed by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
During FUT, surgeons shave the back portion of the head where hair is still growing in order to move it to the front area. Any scarring that results from this process will be hidden under any hair growth that occurs later. The process may take several hours depending on how much hair needs to be moved.
For those who prefer a less invasive procedure, FUE is an option as well. During this process, surgeons use a small circular tool that spits out tiny punches into the scalp. The hairs are then extracted and planted in the front hairline. As with any surgical procedure, there may be some side effects such as pain, redness, and swelling.
This procedure is typically done under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Some light sedation may be provided as well. The patient can go home after a few hours of recovery time, but there are some aftereffects that they will have to deal with including minor aches and pains, redness or swelling, and potential bleeding or infection.
All of the procedures mentioned are popular among women because they offer a simple and fast way to achieve their desired physical appearance. The recovery time is short, and most side effects are temporary. These cosmetic surgeries can help women feel more confident in themselves and improve their overall quality of life. If you’re unhappy with your physical appearance, consult with a surgeon to see if any of these procedures are right for you.
