Cosmetic Surgery To Help Reshape Your Body

Cosmetic surgery includes non-surgical and surgical procedures that help in reshaping an individual's body structure to improve his or her appearance and self-esteem. A person with realistic expectations and a positive outlook can be a good candidate for the cosmetic procedures, since they help to improve the way that he or she will view him or herself. Some of the popular surgical procedures include breast reductions and tummy tucks.

Breast reduction

Breast reduction popularly called reduction mammaplasty, helps in removing excess breast fat, skin, and glandular tissue to achieve a breast sizes that is proportional to the size of the body. Furthermore, the procedure helps to end the discomfort associated with large breasts.

Overly large breasts have a history of causing many women to experience both emotional and health problems. The weight of large breast tissues can interfere with the spine and it can make it hard for a woman to breathe. These surgical procedures should come as a personal choice, avoid being forced into them by other people's opinions. If you decide to go through the procedure, consider that breast reduction is recommended for women who:

· Are bothered by the fact that their breasts are overly large

· Are physically healthy

· Do not smoke

· Have realistic expectations

· Have breasts that limit their physical activity

· Experience back, shoulder and neck pain caused by large breasts

· Experience skin irritation underneath the breast

· Have breasts that hang low, with stretched skin

· Have enlarged areolae resulting from stretched skin

· Have nipples that lie below the crease, particularly when the breasts are unsupported

Tummy tuck

Also known as abdominoplasty, the tummy tuck assists with the removal of excess skin and fat. In many cases it helps in restoring separated or weakened muscles creating a smoother and firmer abdominal profile. Many people strive for a well toned and flat abdomen through exercise but with little success. As a result, it is common to see people with normal body proportions and weight, developing abdomens that protrude.

The main causes of a loose abdomen include:

· Heredity

· Pregnancy

· Aging

· Prior surgery

· Significant weight fluctuations

Abdominoplasty is recommended for healthy people with a stable weight and those who do not smoke. If you are recovering from a c-section procedure, it is not recommended for you.

The results of a tummy tuck can be permanent; however, the results can be undermined by fluctuations in weight. Therefore, people planning to lose weight or women considering future pregnancies can be advised against the abdominoplasty surgery.
