What is The Best Plastic Surgery?
The popularity of plastic surgeries is growing every year. In the last decade, the total number of plastic surgeries in the world has increased by 98% following the American Society of Plastic Surgery report.
Women are no longer the only adherents of plastic surgery. Men also contribute to the growing popularity of plastics. The Bookimed team has conducted research and identified what kinds of plastic surgery are in the highest demand.
There are two types of liposuction, a surgical procedure when fat is removed from some regions of the body to provide a thinner and more elegant body silhouette.
In the case of vacuum liposuction, the most popular type of this operation, physiological saline, a drug for narrowing blood vessels, and anesthetics are injected into the treated area. This fluid, along with fat, is sucked out of the body using small hollow metal tools called cannulas.
With ultrasonic liposuction, fluctuations occur in adipose tissue, turning it into an emulsion, after which damaged fat is removed from the body through cannulas. This method has more risks than vacuum liposuction, including the risk of internal organ damage. No wonder that ultrasonic liposuction is prohibited in the United States.
The average patient can return to work within one to two weeks after the surgery. Medical tourists usually prefer Turkey as the most appropriate place for fat removal due to affordable prices and high surgeons’ qualifications.
Rhinoplasty changes the nose and harmoniously fits it into the overall picture of the face. The surgeon can reduce the size of the nose, completely change its shape, etc. In some cases, breathing can be improved by this surgery, for example, when the patient’s nasal septum is bent.
Any postoperative traces most often disappear within the next 10-14 days.
Thailand is the most frequently chosen country for rhinoplasty among international patients. In Thailand, the nose job is affordable and qualitative due to high demand and doctors’ vast experience. The cost of rhinoplasty in Thailand is 3-4 times lower than in the United States or the United Kingdom because of the general living wage in the country.
Surgical enlargement of the female breast has become extremely popular; more than 350,000 procedures are performed annually in the States in conforming to ASPS.
The reasons that patients resort to this operation are different — some require the usual increase in both the left and right breasts, others require restoration of only one breast, which may be absent due to some injuries, etc. The third group needs an asymmetric breast size adjustment. Some women prefer breast augmentation surgery in cases of congenital micromastia. This is a condition where the breast does not develop during puberty.
Silicone implants are becoming increasingly popular. They hold their shape well and give the most realistic sensations of a natural breast.
Turkey is recognized as the leading country for this operation. Reasonable prices and first-rate services attract intercontinental patients for breast augmentation. Most patients need one or two weeks to recover from surgery before they can return to their normal lives. However, the limits on dynamic loads, such as running, etc., can last up to several months.
Eyelid plastic surgery (blepharoplasty)
Eyelid plastic surgery can be performed for two reasons — the change of the eyelids and eye shape, and the excess eyelid skin, which may cause visual impairments.
The accumulation of adipose tissue under the eyes, causing the appearance of bags, is eliminated with blepharoplasty of the lower eyelid.
The procedure is popular with Asians. So the most visited country for blepharoplasty is South Korea. The average recovery period after this operation is about ten days, and edema becomes less noticeable within a week.
Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
Abdominoplasty, known as a tummy tuck, helps remove excess wrinkled, sagging skin & excess body fat from the abdomen.
This operation is becoming increasingly popular, especially among women who have an excess of loose skin in the abdomen after pregnancy or, for example, with sudden weight loss and the loss of large amounts of fat mass. In this case, skin flaps and forms folds that can only be removed surgically.
Most patients return to their usual lifestyle and ability to work in 3-5 weeks after the surgery. Patients usually choose Turkey, Thailand, Mexico to get a tummy tuck because it is an excellent opportunity to combine plastic surgery with vacation.
