Why do patients choose to undergo plastic surgery procedures? There are often a range of reasons why one might decide to have a procedure done, including the desire to make a change to a specific body area, to correct a body abnormality that is affecting everyday life or to increase self-confidence.
Other patients are inspired by celebrities.
Recently, the Kardashian family has taken the plastic surgery world by storm, inspiring women to make several changes to their bodies. The curvy look is in, spurring women to undergo a combination of procedures at once. These include a buttock and breast augmentation, as well as liposuction and a tummy tuck.
Also known as a Brazilian butt lift, a buttock augmentation reshapes and enhances the appearance of the gluteal area, creating an uplifted more shapely backside. At Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists, this kind of augmentation is performed through an autologous fat transfer. A breast augmentation accentuates the shape and location of a woman's breasts, increasing volume and pert stature. Breast augmentations were the number one surgery performed during 2014, with more than 200,000 procedures, according to an American Society of Plastic Surgeons report.
Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure used to remove excess fat deposits and improve body contour, as well as proportion. It can be performed on a range of body areas including the ankles, stomach, waistline, thighs and breasts. A tummy tuck is a procedure that removes excess abdominal fat deposits and skin, tightening the muscles and creating a more desirable appearance.
Although these procedures can be combined, the results and overall safety of the patient must be considered before surgery is started. During your consultation at Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists, your desired outcome, medical history and surgery questions will be discussed at length.
