The Basics Of Cosmetic Surgery

By Sintilia Miecevole

It is not uncommon for a person to have something they would like to change about their body. Some people have abnormally large noses. Some women would like to see their bust size larger or reduced. Many people would like to decrease the fatty deposits in their tummies, hips and thighs! This is where cosmetic surgery can come in. When you have cosmetic surgery done, you are having a healthy, normal part of your body reshaped and changed for aesthetic reasons. These parts of the body dont have to be changed. Cosmetic surgery should not be confused with reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery is used strictly to enhance and improve the appearance of a given part of the body.

There have been many medical advances in cosmetic surgery over the last several years. Most cosmetic procedures can now be done as outpatient surgery. This can mean very little discomfort and very little time off from your busy life for recovery.

However, just as with any surgery, cosmetic surgery does have its risks. There are no guarantees with these types of procedures. The medical advances in cosmetic surgery have lessened the risk to those having a procedure done, but choosing to have this done to you should not be entered into lightly. Look for the smallest, most risk-free procedure you can get that will give you the greatest satisfaction and results.

It has been noted by many cosmetic surgeons that their patients do find themselves with more self-esteem after procedures have been done. When a person sees faults on their bodies, it can cause low self-esteem and even depression. The person who takes control and undergoes cosmetic surgery may see themselves in a new light, having fixed the fault they have seen on their bodies all those years. This can lead to higher self-esteem, confidence and satisfaction.

Although there are many types of cosmetic surgery, there are several specific procedures which seem to be the most commonly done. These five procedures are:

nose reshaping (or a nose job)
eyelid surgery
breast enlargement

One worry of those planning on having cosmetic surgery done is Will it look natural? If done correctly, cosmetic surgery should not be perceptible to others! Although those closest to you will probably see a change, those that have never seen you before should not be able to detect you ever had a procedure done. Cosmetic surgery should blend with your natural look and been consistent with your unique characteristics.
