As the surgical world continues to improve, so to does the ease and safety with which operations can be carried out.  With modern innovation, surgery of any type is typically safe and routine for most surgeons, and the surgeons at Gartner Plastic Surgery know what they’re doing.  With years of experience in the country’s most popular and common cosmetic procedures, you know that you’re in good hands with us.  So what are the most popular and common cosmetic procedures for people to have done in the United States?  Let’s find out.

Liposuction

Depending on how much fat you want removed, liposuction can be a quick and easy operation.  Also called “body-sculpting”, liposuction can help you get rid of stubborn and unsightly pockets of fat on your body that you don’t want.  The surgeon makes a small incision from which the fat in your body is sucked out through a vacuum.  The procedure is safe, routine, and simple, with most people reporting being able to return to work and their normal daily activities within a few days.  There may be bruising, swelling, or other possibly alarming symptoms post-surgery at the site of the operation, but they should not be cause for concern as they’re to be expected.  Liposuction can not only make you feel better about yourself, but start you on a road to better health by encouraging further weight-loss behaviors like diet and exercise.

Breast Enlargement

One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, breast enlargement is a great option for women who are self-conscious about their chest size.  A simple and easy procedure, surgeons will place bags filled with saline between the breast tissue and chest muscles or chest muscles and chest wall.  Much like liposuction, the patient should be able to be able to return to work and normal activity only a few days following surgery.  However, vigorous exercise should be avoided for two to three weeks given the strain it may place on your chest and back, especially if your bust has increased in size.

Eyelid Surgery

As you age, you may begin to notice the skin around your eyelids sagging.  Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, aims to fix that problem.  Blepharoplasty removes bagginess and tightens the skin around the eyelid to prevent wrinkles, but is unable to eliminate fine lines.  The surgery is slightly more debilitating than the others as the swelling and bruising that naturally occur with surgery is now occurring near your eyes.  This can make your sight blurry for a few days, and swelling may not go down for a week to ten days.
