Understanding Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery is that branch of Plastic surgery where the primary principle is to enhance the appearance of a person/patient. It can be performed on any part of the body with the focus to improve the symmetry, aesthetic appeal and proportion of the part of the body a patient is not satisfied with.
Cosmetic Surgery is sometimes also referred as Aesthetic surgery because it is greatly related to enhancing the beauty of an individual. It includes both surgical and non- surgical procedures and has seen a huge rise in the recent years where many use it as a means to fight aging while many others to modify their features.
Types of Cosmetic surgery
There are various types of Cosmetic surgery procedures that include enhancing the face, hair and body. The procedures are divided into
- Non surgical
These involve using surgical tools and techniques to enhance the bodily features. They are usually minimally invasive procedures; however, some may require a larger incision.
Breast enhancement surgery is the most common of all cosmetic surgery procedures. A person may not be fully satisfied with her breasts and feel they need to do some changes. Therefore, they can go for any of the following procedures:
Breast augmentation or enlargement
This procedure is carried out when a woman feels her breasts are too small and wants to make them bigger, uneven in size or have changed as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding. The cosmetic surgeon uses breast implants to enhance them either with saline, silicone gel prosthetics and even fat grafting from the patient’s body.
Also known as Mammoplasty, a large number of women undergo this procedure due to various health risks. Very large breasts can cause pain in the back and shoulders and cause physical discomfort. In other cases, women with a high risk of breast cancer also undergo mammoplasty to reduce the risk.
Breast lift/ Mastopexy
Women mostly undergo breast lift if they have dropping breasts and to enhance the firmness. Drooping can be due to old age or as a result of excessive weight loss. Mastopexy is performed by removing the skin and glandular tissues and rearranging the remaining tissues to uplift the breast.
Male breast reduction
This procedure is recommended for men with gyneacomastia where the man’s breast becomes enlarged as a result of hormonal imbalance. The surgeon removes the excess mammary fat and glandular tissue and gives a more masculine looking chest.
Facial contouring and rejuvenation
There is a number of face enhancing procedures available today in Cosmetic surgery. The most common procedures are
Face lift/ Rhytidectomy
This is a surgical procedure that helps in removing wrinkles and tightens the facial skin allowing it more elasticity. The surgeon makes incision near the ears and extending into the hairline. He/she then removes the excess fats and skin, tightens the muscles and skin and re-drapes the sagging skin around the face and neck.
This is one of the most popular procedures that a number of people undergo. Commonly known as a “nose job”, the cosmetic surgeon reshapes the nose as per the need of the patient. Rhinoplasty may also be done due to medical reasons when the patient has difficulty in breathing or has suffered an injury due to some kind of trauma.
The surgeon makes small incisions inside the nostril and removes part of the cartilage to reshape the nose and the tip of the nose by reducing the bony hump.
Otoplasty/ ear surgery
Otoplasty treats the prominent ears by setting it back closer to the head. It is performed by adjusting the shape of the cartilage by giving it a more normal-like shape. The surgery is generally performed simultaneously in both the ears.

Hair transplantation is of great help to those who are suffering from immature hair fall. In this procedure, the surgeon collects tiny hair follicle grafts from other parts of the scalp, mainly the back of the scalp and transplants them in the area where hair growth is required.
