The Most Popular Types of Cosmetic Surgeries

As you’ve probably already noticed, cosmetic surgery has become a common practice in many households. Well, that might sound like there’s a negative connotation associated with it, but the truth of the matter is plastic surgery has grown exponentially throughout the years.

Now, as you know, there are different types of plastic surgery procedures available. Not in order, the most popular ones performed are: breast augmentation, liposuction, nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, and facelifts. All of these are invasive procedures that require one to go under an anesthetic while a surgeon works his magic.

With so many celebrities being the primary individuals that look towards reshaping their body through a surgical procedure, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that plenty of people are choosing the same route to achieve a similar outcome.

The Rise in Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is undoubtedly the most popular type of plastic surgery that’s being performed today. With over 290,000 procedures performed last year, up by 4 percent from 2015, it’s become widely accepted by many households. When you hear the words breast augmentation, it’s likely that you’re thinking of enlargement. Well, while that’s relatively common, there are also procedures that can reduce the size of breasts as well as alter them to correct their positioning and stature.


Another common procedure is liposuction. While it is utilized for cosmetic purposes, many people who have it done feel much better about themselves and use the reshaping as motivation for additional weight loss.  If someone has problem areas resistant to weight loss and wants to slim down quickly, liposuction is an quick, effective option.
