Ever since celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Iggy Azalea took the spotlight, a bigger behind is in fashion. Women who don’t want to spend years in a gym, working out and building those obliques can resort to the now trending buttock implant. It’s like a breast augmentation surgery, only it’s done for the derriere.
Cosmetic surgery is a great market in the US. A lot of people are tempted to do a lipo or have their nose done, or increase their brassiere size with a couple of digits. And now, a bigger behind is in fashion.
The Plastic Surgeons American Society has created a top five list of cosmetic procedures from the last decade and a top five list of minimally invasive procedures. Some of the operations featured on the list are no surprise, while others seem extraordinarily painful and plain torture for the patient’s body.
Top Cosmetic Procedures
Of course, the number one cosmetic surgery on the list is breast augmentation. Ever since cosmetic procedures became a thing, a fuller cleavage was on the wish list of a lot of women.
But this kind of operation also has some medical benefits for women who endure mammoplasties due to breast cancer. Alongside breast augmentation, the number of breast reconstruction surgeries have spiked as well.
Closely following the most sought out cosmetic procedure is liposuction. The procedure consists of extra fat being removed from the stomach area in order to help somebody considerably slim down.
The third embellishment procedure that US citizens seek out is nose reshaping. As opposed to the first two that are preferred mostly by women, this kind of aesthetical procedure is popular in both men and women.
Next on the list is eyelid surgery. It’s sort of like a face life, but for the eyelids. Doctors go in, remove excess skin than is caused by aging and gravity, reduce the swelling below the eyes and give the patient a fresh, younger pair of eyes.
The last on the list is the trending tummy tuck. While a liposuction only removes the excess fat, it doesn’t give the patient a flat, magazine-like abdomen. This is where the tummy tuck comes in. after removing the fat layers, doctors tie the abdominal muscles, making them tenser and offering the patient the flat tummy they were dreaming about.
This procedure is the most dangerous on the list because if a woman undergoes a tummy tuck she will not be able to bear any children in her future because is her belly starts to swell, her abdominal muscles might suffer permanent damage.
Top Minimally Invasive
Minimally invasive medical procedures are very common among US citizens. They are much safer than the previous listed cosmetic enhancements. For a great number of them, there isn’t even a need for a doctor’s presence.
The top five minimally invasive cosmetic surgeries are Botox injections, fillers for soft tissue, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and hair removal with laser technology.
