This can involve augmentation or contouring to address signs of ageing on the body or face. Cosmetic surgery can also be used to restore a person’s body to a more youthful appearance or their pre-pregnancy state. The types of cosmetic surgery usually involve a form of liposuction, body contouring or augmentation. The vacuum-assisted removal of excess fat deposits in different regions of the body is commonly known as Liposuction and can even be used to assist with breast reductions and Gynaecomastia. Lift and tuck procedures to remove excess skin are also referred
to as body contouring and are commonly performed on the legs, arms and abdomen after dramatic weight loss or pregnancy. Augmentation is the use of implants to increase the size of certain assets, such as the breasts or the buttocks. There are also many procedures to modify the nose, eyes, eyebrows, neck, lips and forehead, usually to address obvious signs of ageing or to achieve a better balance of facial features. Addressing abnormalities caused by disease, cancer, birth defects or trauma is the work of a reconstructive surgeon. Where cosmetic surgery is concerned with enhancing one’s appearance, reconstructive surgery is about restoring function or normalising one’s appearance. This includes operating on hands with carpel tunnel syndrome and other degenerative disorders, repairing cleft lips, reconstructing breasts after a mastectomy, and removing skin cancers and scars.
