If you are forced to live with an inferiority complex due to your large or very small boobs, big ears, a large nose or a birthmark, cosmetic surgery can help improve your self-esteem.
If you strongly feel that it’s right for you, then read on…
The most popular operations for younger patients are breast implants (augmentation), liposuction and nose jobs (rhinoplasty).
Breast implants are made of a silicone shell filled with gel or salt-water and are inserted through an incision, usually made under the boob. You can expect to be in pain for just a few weeks after the job.
Liposuction involves inserting a small metal tube into a fatty area through a ’stab’ incision and then pumping out fat deposits through a syringe. Up to three liters of fat can be removed by this method. Post-operative numbness and swelling can last between four weeks and several months.
Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose – making it longer, shorter, smaller or straighter. During most nose jobs, cuts are made inside the nostrils, so there are no visible scars. The op results in bruising and swelling around the eyes and nose for a couple of weeks.
One thing of utmost importance is that you should be absolutely sure about the process. Talk to your surgeon about your need to go in for a surgery and also the possible fallouts. Only then take an enlightened decision.
