Hence, here are five of the most popular cosmetic procedures for a more beautiful you.

Breast Augmentation

A safe and cutting-edge aesthetic surgery for the breast is done in certified clinics operated by professionals. Breast augmentation is quite popular with women who bore children at a rather young age, with the goal of reversing the effects of breastfeeding and childbirth. It is intended to increase or change the size of the breasts. However, breast augmentation is not the same as breast lifts or breast reductions which entails a totally different procedure.

Hair Loss Treatments

Hair loss treatments, or hair transplantation, is another one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Apart from being a popular procedure for both men and women, it is also a common type of cosmetic plastic surgery. It aims to restore hair to improve the appearance of baldness or patches. In hair transplantation, hair from an area of thick growth is moved to a bald area. Even a single session can already transfer thousands of strands of hair, but some individuals require to undergo more than one session. The hair that is transferred from one location to another is already permanent, which entails that no special care is necessary. Additionally, most hair transplants result in a successful hair growth even after the procedure itself.


Dermabrasion is a form of skin care that aims to reverse the adverse effects of aging. In this procedure, a special tool is used to gently scrub the top layer of the skin and eliminate the dead skin cells. Once this top layer is removed, the skin naturally heals itself, wherein new skin cells are generated to replace the old skin cells. As a result, the skin is softer and smoother. This procedure is usually done for patients with acne scars and age spots. Nevertheless, dermabrasion is also effective for people with lesions on the skin, as well as those with sun-damaged skin. Of course, dermabrasion is also the most popular procedure to reduce wrinkles.


The nose is known to be the focal point of the face, thus rhinoplasty, or the surgery that aims to repair or reshape the nose, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures to date. This procedure can be done to reduce the size of the nose or narrow down the shape of the nostrils. In the same manner, the shape of the bridge or the angle of the nose can likewise be enhanced with this procedure. But apart from being a simple cosmetic procedure to enhance the features of your nose, rhinoplasty is sometimes done out of medical reasons such as a birth defect or difficulty in breathing. It can also be done to correct problems following an injury.

Liposuction and Tummy Tuck

Liposuction is very popular for those who want to eliminate body fat in certain target areas in their bodies. It is a cosmetic procedure that can definitely improve the shape of your body, but it should not be confused as a means of weight loss. It is merely a means of removing fat deposits in certain body areas, after a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine fails to do so. In liposuction, localized fat deposits that are beneath the skin are scraped by using a vacuum-suction cannula, which is very much similar to the shape of a pen. It is typically done on the arms, thighs, stomach, hips, face, buttocks and back.

On the other hand, tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is performed to improve the shape of the abdomen. Similar to liposuction, tummy tuck removes excess fat on the abdomen. What makes it different though is that even the excess skin due to weight loss is also removed in this procedure. While it can definitely improve the appearance of loose or sagging skin, this procedure cannot remove the appearance of stretch marks.

To wrap things up, be reminded of the popular saying that ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’. What is deemed beautiful by one person may be different for another. Nevertheless, you are the best person who should define your own beauty. If you deem that going under the knife is necessary, then go ahead. Just keep in mind to only trust the certified professionals in the field.
