You don’t have to go all the way to Los Angeles to meet particularly health and age-conscious Californians concerned about their physical appearance—even people in San Diego and elsewhere understand and appreciate the benefits, both aesthetically and functionally, of enhancing one’s features where there are possible and safe ways to do so. For instance, rhinoplasty in San Diego helps people get their noses into shape, to adjust the span of the nostrils, or to change the angle between the nose and the upper lip. Here are some of the more common cosmetic surgery procedures that help people, women in particular, gain confidence when their looks—fresher and livelier—are restored.
Also known as rhytidectomy, facelifts help remove or reduce wrinkles, sagging, and other age signs on the skin of the face. This procedure often involve making incisions on the temple area and circles around to the front of the ear, although thanks to modern procedures, you could be able to get a limited incision facelift that use shorter cuts.
Eyelid lift or blepharoplasty for San Diego patients is an essential for correcting defects, deformities or disfigurations in the eyelids. Here’s what an article in WebMD says about what you can expect from this procedure:
Eyelid surgery (called blepharoplasty) reshapes your eyelids. It is done to remove bagginess and tighten lose skin around the eyelids, but doesn’t remove fine wrinkle lines. You will have some swelling and bruising afterward. Sometimes the swelling doesn’t go down for a week or two. The bruises usually go away in a week to 10 days. Your vision may be blurry for days after the operation, and you may tear up easily, or have dry eyes.
Liposuction is the process of removing fat deposits in the body (usually in the thighs, buttocks, hips and upper arms) using a tube that is to be inserted inside the skin and sucked through a vacuum. While this might seem like an excellent weight loss solution, this procedure should only be performed with the approval of a medical professional.
Breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy is a procedure that removes excess skin in the breasts to raise it and tighten the surrounding tissue to reshape and support its new contour. Ideal breast lift candidates are those who are in good physical health and have stretched skin and enlarged areolas, or having one breast lower than the other.
If you are considering getting cosmetic surgery done, be sure to consult first with medical professionals, such as Alexander Cosmetic Surgery, to find out if you are a viable candidate for the procedure.
