Many plastic surgery options are becoming less invasive procedures with a much shorter recovery time than previously required. In fact, many surgical procedures now require several small incisions instead of large incisions that require a large amount of recovery time along with significant scarring. Using lasers, small scopes, and other small instruments, these small incisions are all that the surgeon needs to enter the body and correct the problems.
Types of Plastic Surgery
Various plastic surgery procedures can improve facial features or various parts of the body. For those with some facial aging, a neck lift, forehead lift, mid-face lift, eyelid surgery, or chin surgery can return facial features to a previously youthful appearance.
Others who want to see improvement in their silhouette can opt for liposuction to remove fatty areas, breast enlargements or reduction to change the shape and size of the breasts, and a tummy tuck to remove extra fat in the abdominal area.
Most of these procedures can be completed with minimally invasive techniques. They typically require about two weeks of recovery time, baring complications like infection or other issues.
