Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a plastic surgery procedure for correcting and reconstructing the form, restoring the functions, and aesthetically enhancing the nose by resolving nasal trauma (blunt, penetrating, blast), congenital defect, respiratory impediment, or a failed primary rhinoplasty. Most patients ask to remove a bump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the mouth, as well as correct injuries, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing, such as deviated nasal septum or a sinus condition.
Laser resurfacing is a treatment to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars. The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer.
Liposuction, or simply lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery that removes fat from the human body in an attempt to change its shape. Evidence does not support an effect on weight beyond a couple of months and it does not appear to affect obesity related problems. In the United States it is the most commonly done cosmetic surgery.
Botox - Botulinum Toxin (BTX) or Botox
Botox is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species. It prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from axon endings at the neuromuscular junction and thus causes flaccid paralysis. Infection with the bacterium causes the disease botulism. The toxin is also used commercially in medicine, cosmetics and research.
Injectable fillers are a soft tissue filler that is injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body.
Abdominoplasty, or 'tummy tuck', is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen thinner and more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. This type of surgery is usually sought by patients who have loose or sagging tissue after pregnancy or major weight loss.
Acupuncture is a system of complementary medicine in which fine needles are inserted into the skin at specific points along what are considered to be lines of energy (meridians). This technique is used in the treatment of various physical and mental conditions.
Breast augmentation and augmentation mammoplasty (colloquially known as a 'boob job') are plastic surgery terms for the breast-implant and the fat-graft mammoplasty approaches used to alter the size, shape and texture of a woman's breasts. As a primary reconstruction, augmentation mammoplasty is applied to effect a post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, the repair of the chest wound consequent to the removal of a cancerous breast; to correct congenital defects of the breast(s); and to correct congenital defects of the chest wall. As an elective, cosmetic surgery, primary augmentation changes the aesthetics – size, shape, and texture – of healthy breasts.
The pre-operative aspects, and the post-operative aspects of a bilateral, sub-muscular emplacement of 350 cc saline implants through an infra-mammary fold (IMF) incision
The surgical implantation approach affects the global augmentation of the breast hemisphere using a breast implant filled with either saline solution or silicone gel; moreover, the surgical augmentation approach can include the application of transplanted autologous skin flaps harvested from the woman's body. The fat-graft transfer approach augments the size and corrects contour defects of the breast hemisphere with grafts of autologous adipocyte fat tissue that's drawn from the woman's body.
