Cosmetic Surgery Facts for Total Newbies
Last year, 17.5 million Americans made the decision to get plastic surgery, according to ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) data. Minimally-invasive plastic surgery procedures, which require less recovery downtime, have increased in popularity by a whopping 200 percent. Women who are cosmetic surgery newbies will benefit from learning some interesting facts about plastic surgery, such as which procedures are the most popular, how much these procedures typically cost and what the benefits and risks of cosmetic surgery are. This guide is packed with useful facts which will help ladies to get answers to all of the plastic surgery questions that they’ve been afraid to ask.
Which procedures are hot right now?
Breast augmentations, liposuction and nose jobs (rhinoplasties) are the most popular forms of invasive plastic surgery in the USA. Botox is the most popular minimally-invasive form of cosmetic surgery for Americans. According to Webmd.com, breast augmentations are performed using saline or silicone implants. To avoid the cartoonish look of oversized implants (let’s call it the “Stormy Daniels effect”), women should choose implant sizes which are in scale to their body types. Liposuction is the process of removing fatty deposits with a special tool called a cannula. Nose jobs alter the bridges and/or tips of noses to give them a more refined appearance. Botox is injected into expression lines to smooth them out, by paralyzing underlying muscles. When Botox is used in moderation, there’s no “Cat Lady” look!
How much do these procedures cost?
Hollywood actresses and fashion models have a lot of cash to drop on plastic surgery. Women who don’t get massive paychecks need to worry about money. Breast augmentations have an average price tag of $6,325 USD, based on data from Realself.com. Liposuction has an average cost of $6,025 and nose reshaping generally costs around $7,475. One session of Botox injections will set a woman back about $550. Women who want the Hollywood look are willing to invest in themselves by paying big bucks for procedures. Many experience surges in self-esteem when they change their body parts or smooth out wrinkled complexions, or both.
What are the benefits and risks?
According to Smartskincare.com, invasive plastic surgery provides long-lasting benefits, but may trigger complications, including scarring. Also, invasive plastic surgery may not be right for women with certain pre-existing health issues, such as diabetes. Minimally-invasive plastic surgery offers benefits that are typically temporary. Most ladies who get Botox for wrinkle reduction access results that last from three to six months. Botox may cause drooping eyelids and/or bruising at and around the injection site.
Is plastic surgery a smart choice?
Every woman is different. For some ladies, plastic surgery is empowering. It gives them the capacity to look the way that they want to look. Women who already like themselves, but want some changes to their appearance, are ideal candidates for plastic surgery. Ladies who read fashion mags and watch TV and movies already know that most of their favorite models and actresses have had a little (or a lot) of help to look the way that they do. Women who want the Hollywood look may find that plastic surgery is a smart choice.
