10 Unusual Plastic Surgery Procedures That Are Popular
It’s common for people to want cosmetic procedures to make their breasts bigger, shrink the size of their tummy or have a procedure such as buccal fat pad removal to contour their face. However, there is a whole world of plastic surgery procedures that most people do not even know about.
Let’s find out more about 10 bazaar cosmetic procedures that are popular.
Creation Of A Six Pack
Before advancements in the plastic surgery world, a person would have to eat healthy food and go to the gym to get a six-pack. Now, it’s as simple as visiting a plastic surgeon. Liposuction used to be the ideal way to flatten out areas of the tummy that were prone to sticking out.
There is now a procedure known as Hi-Def Liposculpture which can help you obtain a six-pack. This procedure is a combination of liposuction and shrinking the surrounding skin. Beware, this surgery is much more involved than traditional liposuction. However, the results are amazing!
The corners of the mouth can droop with age, which can make you appear grumpy all the time. No worries though, because you can get a grin lift. It is the absolute best way to turn your frown upside down.
During this procedure, the physician will remove small skin triangles from each corner of the mouth. This causes a lifting effect. The upside to this cosmetic fix is that people will stop asking if you are ok. However, the downside is this may cause permanent scars, so you could end up looking like The Joker.
Upper Lip Lift
Believe it or not, the skin between the nose and upper lip tends to lengthen as we age. Many people turn to injections or fillers, but the results are only temporary. Plus, fillers and injections tend to only help with volume and are not a fix for the elongated area between your nose and mouth.
The surgeon will remove a bullhorn shaped piece of skin, which will lift the upper lip. Stitches are placed in the crease of the nose, so scarring will not be noticed. If you are looking for a way to enhance your smile and get rid of aging around your lips, then an upper lip lift is the solution.
Bra Line Back Lift
What woman doesn’t hate those fat rolls underneath their bra. Techniques have advanced so now you can get a back lift to take care of back fat. The answer before was to have liposuction, but this left patients with loose skin. During this procedure, the physician will remove back rolls, which results in a flatter back. The scar will be hidden in the bra line.
Belly Button Surgery
For those who have an outie, it is possible to now be like the vast majority of society and become an innie. An outie is an umbilical hernia. During this procedure, the surgeon will make a small incision on the upper surface of the belly button and turn it into an innie. There will be a scar but it will be well hidden.
Chubby Cheek Surgery
Kids are notorious for having chubby cheeks that are cute and pleasant. Chubby cheeks on an adult is not a pleasing sight. In the medical world, this procedure is known as a buccal lipectomy. The physician will make a small incision inside the cheek, allowing them to remove a gumball-size amount of fat. This will cause the cheeks to be hollow and contour inward.
A wide jawline is caused by the overgrowth of the masseter muscle, which is used for chewing. This use to be handled by shaving down the muscle. However, advancements in techniques have come a long way, and the muscle is now decreased by using Botox injections. These injections will weaken the muscle, causing it to wither away. Patients will notice that the jawline is thinner. Results will only last for about 6 months, so injections of Botox will need to be repeated.
Gummy Smile Repair
If you are tired of your gummy smile, then it can be repaired. If you go to the dentist, they will do a procedure which alters the gumline. However, a plastic surgeon will use techniques to help improve a gummy smile by cutting muscles that raise the lip. They will then insert a spacer implant to help prevent the muscles from reconnecting.
If glamour is your thing, then you may want to consider an eyelash transplant. When your lashes are thinning or falling out due to aging, Latisse is the answer.
Dimples are quite cute and many people are born with them. If you have always wanted dimples, you are in luck. A plastic surgeon can make a small incision on the inside of the mouth and place a suture between the buccinator muscle and skin of the cheek. This will create a dimple when you smile.
