3 Common Cosmetic Procedures You May Wish To Consider

Not everyone is happy with their physical appearance. People may not appreciate a wrinkle or two on their face or may not be happy with a few fat pockets present on their body. There are some cosmetic procedures that can help you with these issues and more. Read on and discover a few of the most common cosmetic procedures that you may wish to consider.

Botox Injections

Botox injections inject a serum called botulinum directly into the muscle – often into the forehead – in order to paralyze them. This is often used to decrease the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and the area known as the "frownline." You will have decreased movement in the area in question, but the wrinkles will eventually fade, given some time. Some of the common side effects of botox include bruising, numbness, and swelling, but it is a simple procedure that does not take much time, and the side effects only last for a short period of time. Botox is not a permanent procedure, so you will need regular injections to enjoy the results.


Lioplasty can "sculpt" your body by removing pockets of fat that are difficult to get rid of, usually around the area known as the "love handles." The procedure is quite simple. A small incision is made in the area in which you want the fat to be removed, then, using a vacuum-like device, the fat is sucked out from underneath the skin. Recovery time is quite quick, usually within a couple of days after the procedure is complete, and the side effects —which include bruising and swelling—are minimal. A common form of lipoplasty is a tummy tuck.


As you get older, you will notice the skin around your face will begin to fall victim to gravity. Some of it will sag, and you will find that it will also fold a bit. A facelift involves tightening the skin by stretching it upwards towards your scalp, giving it a much a tauter, youthful look. You will be swollen and bruised after the procedure, but you won't have to worry about taking too much time off of work or school. After a couple of weeks of rest and staying out of the sun, you will be able to enjoy your day to day activities and routine.

If you believe you could benefit from one of the aforementioned procedures, take the time to contact a trusted cosmetic surgeon's office to negotiate prices and talk to a professional in more detail.
