Top 5 Most Popular Plastic Surgeries

Cosmetic surgery continues to grow in popularity year after year. As the year comes to a close, it is estimated that approximately 2 million cosmetic surgeries have been performed in the United States alone. In the past 10 years, the total number of cosmetic surgery has increased by 98 percent, which is a substantial increase especially considering that the vast majority are paid out-of-pocket.

Top 5 Most Popular Plastic Surgeries

Although women continue to lead with the total amount of plastic surgery performed, men are also contributing to the increase. Racial minorities are also beginning to have more plastic surgery, with almost 25 percent indicating that they are non-Caucasian.

Here are some of the most popular cosmetic procedures completed at McLean Clinic.

1. Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat from localized areas of the body to enhance the shape and contour of your silhouette. Fat is removed from the body through a small tube, called a cannula, inserted into small incisions made in areas with pinchable fat. The most common areas of treatment include the stomach, love handles, inner and outer thigh, arms, and back. Dr. McLean uses a technique that infiltrates the fat with fluid, in a process called tumescence, to assist in its removal.

Often times, stubborn fat deposits are an inherited trait and liposuction is an effective way to eliminate it. An ideal candidate has good tone and elasticity in their skin to help achieve a smooth and flawless result following the removal of fat underneath it. Following this procedure, you can expect a slimmer, more enhanced silhouette that can allow your clothing to fit better and for you to feel more confident in your appearance.

2. Breast Augmentation

The cosmetic enhancement of women’s breasts is an incredibly popular cosmetic procedure completed at McLean Clinic. Breast augmentations are done for a multitude of reasons: to enlarge the shape and size of the breast, to make asymmetrical breasts equal in size, to restore lost volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding, or to address various conditions such as congenital micromastia, which is the absence of breast development in women during puberty.

3. Tummy Tuck

Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen area, tightening the skin that remains, as well as tightening the abdominal muscles that tend to separate during pregnancy to restore a more youthful, flatter tummy. The tummy tuck is particularly popular among women who have excess skin and fat post-pregnancy or after they have lost a substantial amount of weight.

It is crucial to note that tummy tucks are not a weight loss alternative. This procedure is unable to remove fat deposits within your abdominal area but will instead remove excess loose, hanging skin. If you have a tummy with no loose skin that feels tight, you will likely require to lose weight before perfecting your silhouette with the tummy tuck.

4. Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty, or a nose job, will simply help reshape the nose, bringing it into balance with the rest of your surrounding features. This may involve a reduction in the size of the nose or to refine certain areas of the nose to achieve this goal. We advise patients to wait until they are 16, when the nose is fully developed, before choosing to undergo this procedure.

Incisions from this procedure will be well hidden inside the contours of your nose and will not be visible. Your re-shaped nose will allow you to feel more confident when looking in the mirror and also boost your self-esteem.

5. Face Lift

A facelift is a surgical procedure that corrects lines, wrinkles and sagging associated with the natural aging process. It will tighten your complexion to provide a look that is more youthful and rejuvenated by pulling the skin more taught. This will smooth out deep lines and minimize the appearance of sagging.

Facelifts are commonly combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery. The combination of these cosmetic procedures will enhance your youthful appearance and help reverse the signs of aging, providing optimal results that will last for years.
