What is Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic Surgery is a term used to describe a large variety of aesthetic surgical procedures that are aimed mainly at altering the appearance of the person. This can be done in order to reconstruct and correct a damaged outer part of the body (such as hand, fingers, etc.) but it is most commonly performed for its aesthetic nature, in that it makes the person improve their appearance which has a direct stimulus on the self-esteem.


What are the Different Types of Cosmetic Surgeries?

There are several types of cosmetic surgeries that are mainly defined by their purpose as well as the location.


These are some of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures on the face:


This is a highly-diluted form of the natural toxin Botulinum which is injected directly into the facial muscles using a very fine needle. This Botox causes the loosened facial muscles tighten up. This gives a youthful look with a wrinkle-free face.

Chemical Peel

Although not exactly a surgical method, a chemical peel is still a common cosmetic treatment. This technique uses a series of safe chemical substances to gently rid the face of the dead and age-damaged skin cells. This results in a healthy and glowing face.

Facelift Surgery:

This is another most common facial cosmetic surgery today. It requires the cosmetic surgeon to make very fine incisions along certain parts of the face. These incisions are then used to gently tighten the underlying facial muscles. The surgeon will also remove excessive and sagging skin from the face (whenever advisable) and then stretch the remaining skin tight over the face before using very fine stitches to hold the skin in place till it heals in few days.

Laser Hair Removal:

This surgery is mostly used to permanently remove unwanted facial hair, mostly by women. This high-tech cosmetic surgical technique is a non-invasive surgical method which uses a powerful and precise laser beam to destroy the hair follicles (roots) lying under the skin. This not only removes the hairs but also prevents future growth with the destruction of the hair follicle in the particular place.


The ‘nose job’ as it is more popularly known is a globally popular cosmetic surgery. This surgery requires altering the size and shape of the nose to make the overall facial appearance more attractive. The surgeon will use minimally surgical techniques to remove cartilage, tissue, and bone (if necessary) from under the nasal skin to give the nose the desired shape.

Body Cosmetic Surgery:

These are some of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed on the body.

Tummy Tuck:

Also known as an ‘Abdominoplasty’, this cosmetic surgery serves a dual purpose mostly. The surgeon will use minimally invasive surgical methods to trim the underlying stubborn abdominal body fat & also tighten the muscles and skin over it to give the tummy a more firm and fit look. This surgery can help get rid of signs of aging, obesity as well as post-pregnancy effects of a protruding tummy effectively.

Full Body Liposuction:

This is a comprehensive cosmetic surgery performed over most parts of the body. This unique minimally invasive surgical method requires the surgeon to make very small incisions in parts of the body where there is excess fat deposit (such as abdomen, thighs, flanks, buttocks, neck, arms, etc). These incisions are then used to insert a cannula (small and flexible vacuum tube) which then sucks out the stubborn fat deposits.

Breast Augmentation:

A breast augmentation cosmetic surgery is another popular aesthetic surgery. The main aim of breast augmentation is to alter the shape and size of the breasts in order to make them more symmetrical as well as more attractive. The varying sub-techniques may use a fat graft from another part of the body to restore the volume of breasts. The more popular type of cosmetic breast augmentation is to use artificial breast implants to increase the size and improve the shape of breasts.

Breast Reduction:

This is another popular cosmetic surgery focused on improving the appearance of breasts. The breast reduction cosmetic surgery is required when women feel the size of their breasts to be abnormally large or disproportionate to the rest of the body. The cosmetic surgeon will make very fine incisions under the breasts and remove excessive fatty tissue from inside the breasts. The surgeon might also require tightening the underlying chest muscles and re-arrange the location of the nipples to suit the improved shape of the breasts.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which is used to remove stubborn small deposits of fat from various parts of the body. This is one of the most effective and popular body contouring surgical techniques widely used today.


Liposuction requires a cannula (small blunt-tipped vacuum tube) to be inserted into the part of the body and remove the fat using powerful suction.

What are the Types of Liposuction Procedures?

Liposuction techniques have improved significantly in recent years. These new and advanced liposuction methods are easier, more efficient and safer than the traditional liposuction technique.

These are the various types of liposuction procedures in popular use today:

Tumescent liposuction – A tumescent liposuction technique requires the surgeon to inject a local anaesthetic into the area of the body from where the fat is to be removed. The next step involves injecting an anaesthetic saline solution directly into the fatty tissue using a surgical tube. This saline anaesthetic solution is helpful in shrinking the surrounding blood vessels and protects them from damage. This allows the surgeon to safely remove the fatty tissue using a cannula but without any damage to the surrounding healthy tissue and blood vessels.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction – The ultrasound-assisted liposuction is one of the least invasive and modern liposuction methods. It requires the surgeon to target the fatty parts of the body with high-frequency ultrasound waves. These are helpful in loosening the fat from the connecting tissue. The disconnected fat becomes liquefied and easy to remove using a cannula. This liposuction technique is ideally advised for removing fat from a person’s back, sides, neck, abdomen, and upper arms.

Laser-assisted liposuction – This technique is an advanced liposuction technique. It uses a high-energy laser beam to target the fat cells inside the body. The heat generated by the laser beam helps to liquefy the fat. The liquefied fat is easier and more efficient to be removed using a cannula.

Liposuction procedures are mostly performed as an outpatient surgery and do not require extended stay in the hospital. If the liposuction is performed using advanced methods, then the recovery time is also reduced significantly.

What is Recovery Like after a Liposuction Procedure?

After a Liposuction procedure, the treated area of the body will be safely wrapped in a bandage to prevent or reduce swelling and bruising. It is also effective in decreasing pain. Special pressure garments are used to prevent blood clots, etc. The swelling and bruising normally disappear within 7-10 days after the liposuction surgery. The doctor will prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection.

It takes around 2 weeks to return to normal everyday life after full recovery from a liposuction procedure.

What is the Need for Liposuction Procedure?

The main aim of a liposuction procedure is to give an attractive shape to the body by removing fat from selected parts of the body. This is not to be mistaken as a weight-loss surgery as it is more of a cosmetic surgery. A liposuction procedure is ideal to remove those stubborn deposits of fats from certain parts of the body, such as the abdomen, side, back, and neck, etc that are hard to remove through regular exercise and dieting.

Liposuction is mostly used in combination with several other procedures, such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and breast lift to give a better shape to the body.

Liposuction is also useful in treating several medical conditions as well, including:

  • Lipomas (benign tumor in fat tissue)
  • Gynecomastia (abnormally large male breasts)
  • Lipodystrophy (fat metabolism issues)
  • Axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating)

Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity and is not reliable to remove stretch marks and cellulite.

How Successful is Liposuction Procedure?

Liposuction procedures using the advanced and efficient techniques are highly-successful in removing fat deposits from small areas in the body. However, the successful effects of the liposuction procedure will fail if the person gains weight after the procedure. Fat may appear in the treated area or in another part of the body.

Noticeable improvement in the body shape is mostly seen right after the surgery, and more significant improvement is seen as the weeks advance and the swelling subsides.
