All successful cosmetic surgery procedures begin on the inside, with the patient’s desire for a change. They do not start on the outside, with the patient’s desire to fulfil someone else’s expectations of what they should look like.
The second step in the process is to find a highly-qualified plastic surgeon in Toronto who has a unique skill set. First, the doctor should listen to you and determine your goals for the procedure. Second, the doctor should review the pros and cons of all available options, and not try to steer you towards some procedures and away from others. Third, the doctor must have the surgical skills to transform you from the outside to the inside, delivering results that exceed your expectations.
The most popular cosmetic procedure has changed significantly since the 1990s, in terms of both aesthetics and safety.
Back then, many women wanted extremely large implants, following the lead of celebrities like Pamela Anderson. Even today, some women want the curvaceous Kim Kardashian look. But most of today’s breast augmentation patients want only modest increases in cup sizes, perhaps from a B to a C. Such a procedure gives women the additional confidence they want, and usually means a shorter surgical recovery as well.
Moreover, the first generation-saline and liquid silicone implants are a thing of the past. Today, the doctor will use implants that are much less likely to rupture and cause health problems. Many Toronto surgeons even offer advanced Gummy Bear implants. Their dense silicone filling not only makes them unlikely to rupture, but also gives them a much more natural shape.
Many, many people have fat deposits which simply do not respond to diet and exercise, especially around the midsection. Today’s available liposuction procedures may hold the key to a healthier life and much more confidence. Once again, recent innovations give the doctor more options to gently siphon away fat cells:
- Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction: Before sucking away the fat, the doctor bombards the area with gentle ultrasound waves that liquefy these cells and make them even easier to extract.
- Tumescent Liposuction: Just before the procedure, the doctor injects a lidocaine solution into the treatment area, so there is no need for a general anesthesia.
- Laser-Assisted Liposuction: This is a similar procedure that uses a targeted laser beam as opposed to ultrasound bombardment, making it ideal for more limited liposuction procedures and/or those involving fewer fat cells.
These procedures may also shorten the recovery period and reduce the post-surgical discomfort that some liposuction patients experience.
Men and women both seek liposuction treatments, and that’s even more true of rhinoplasties (nose alteration). This cosmetic procedure is not strictly cosmetic, as today’s rhinoplasty may address some common breathing disorders, giving patients a much better quality of life in addition to a symmetrical face.
