Few things indicate just how advanced the state of medical technology has become than plastic surgery. Medicine has moved beyond merely alleviating pain and rectifying dysfunctions. Today, the very elements of your appearance can be improved using cutting edge medical developments. Many people’s lives have been saved through plastic surgery, whether through facial reconstruction, healing of harelips, scar tissue removal, or through the confidence they gain by the procedure.
It used to be the case that men and women would hide their plastic surgery bandages away for weeks after the procedure. Today, plastic surgery is more widely accepted not as a form of vanity, but as a type of self-care.
The world has become a much better place by leaving its shame over a medical procedure behind, but that does not mean that everyone is on the same page when it comes to what procedures are available out there.
At Coastal Dermatology & Plastic Surgery, we have seen our practices change many lives for the better. Let’s take a moment to explore the top types of procedures that tend to be marketed to men and women to give you a baseline for understanding the benefits of plastic surgery.
Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Procedures Targeted for Both Men and Women
Both men and women can benefit from facial reconstructive surgery, especially after face-altering accidents. These types of procedures are popular, even essential for one’s self-esteem, after certain types of life-altering injuries.
Both men and women can opt for liposuction. Liposuction directly removes the accumulated fat from the body. Both laser-assisted and traditional liposuction programs remain popular for weight control situations that have gone beyond traditional treatment.
Both men and women have been gravitating toward the category of cosmetic surgery called “body tucks.” These procedures help to improve the look of specific elements of the body. These tucks include:
- Body contouring
- Reshaping the thighs
- Removing stubborn fat
Many similar procedures exist for improving the look of the patient’s face. Cheek fat deposits can be reduced for a slimmer, sexier face. Chins can be shaped and even made to look more sharp. The entire face can be lifted in the perennially popular facelift procedure that greatly increases the youthfulness of the recipient.
