The number of cosmetic surgeries and procedures has soared in the last few decades, with more and more people electing to get them at younger and younger ages. Two of the most popular cosmetic procedures to be selected are liposuction and breast augmentation surgery. Obviously, the latter is more popular with women, but the former has measurable appeal to both men and women. Many people would like to get a certain procedure done but are worried about the healing time needed after the surgery or do not want to go “under the knife”. The good news is that for some procedures there are noninvasive techniques that accomplish the same thing as traditional surgery.
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the US, as it is an easy fix for unsightly deposits of fat under the skin and a relatively cheap procedure. Depending on the type of liposuction one chooses, it typically costs between $1000 and $5000 dollars. Liposuction for men often takes place in the abdomen or the “flanks” (love handles), while women usually elect to have it done on their buttocks or thighs. There are a number of ways that a cosmetic surgeon can perform liposuction, and non invasive liposuction is becoming increasingly popular. One of the advantages to non invasive liposuction is reduced healing time. Although the negative effects of any procedure cannot be completely eliminated, non invasive liposuction decreases the amount of negative effects that one experiences after the procedure. Whether or not it is a non invasive liposuction procedure that you select, you should discuss it with your general practitioner beforehand, as the procedure cannot be performed on people with certain health problems.
Of course, one must be in touch with their general practitioner before electing for any cosmetic surgery, but especially before breast augmentation. The various options for breast augmentation, including types of breast implants, breast implant sizing, whether it is placed underneath or on top of the pectoral muscle, make it a complex procedure that should never be attempted without the “okay” from one’s doctor.
