The field of cosmetic surgery has seen many advances over the years, with new, non-invasive techniques that mean less downtime with minimal scarring. Of the many cosmetic surgery procedures available today, here are the most popular.
- Rhinoplasty – Commonly known as the ‘nose job’, rhinoplasty is carried out to alter the shape of the nose and this might be a minor change, or by removing bone, unsightly bumps can be smoothed out. If you would like beautiful nose surgery (called เสริมจมูกสวย in Thai), Bangkok has the best clinics in the world and prices are much lower than in Europe or the US. There are two main types of rhinoplasty; the open and closed procedure, with the open surgery involving incisions made in the narrow strip of flesh between the nostrils, while the closed rhinoplasty uses incisions on the inside of the nostrils.
- Breast Augmentation – This might be to enlarge the breasts, reduce their size or to achieve symmetry and the surgeon would show you many before and after images to help you to identify how you would like your breasts to look. Typically, breast implants are made from medical grade silicone, as this material mimics perfectly the breast tissue and when you meet the surgeon, he is happy to answer any questions you might have.
- Abdominoplasty – Called the ‘tummy tuck’, this procedure removes that stubborn fat that no amount of exercise seems to shift and with minimal scarring, you can retain that youthful shape you miss so much. If you would like to learn more about this type of plastic surgery, search with Google for a nearby clinic and you can make an appointment to see the resident surgeon.
- Face-Lift – As we age, our skin loses some of its elasticity and for the over 50s, a face-lift removes those ugly wrinkles and a skilled surgeon can give you a new look and no one would ever know that you had surgery. This procedure can be carried out in a number of ways, depending on what you are trying to achieve and with fine precision, the surgeon can restore your youthful look.
