As winter turns into spring, you might find yourself looking at your new year’s resolutions and wondering how you can still make 2017 your best year ever. While we can’t help you get a new job, train for a marathon or finally get through “Ulysses,” “War and Peace,” or “Infinite Jest,” we can help you feel more confident about your appearance. A variety of cosmetic surgical procedures can help turn 2017 into your best year ever.
Your nose helps you breathe with ease, helps you smell and plays a big role in your facial balance and symmetry. Is it any wonder that rhinoplasty, which can change the shape and size of the nose, as well as improve its function, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures?
If you’ve long felt embarrassed by the way your nose looks or if you have had trouble breathing due to a deviated septum or other abnormality inside your nose, make 2017 the year that you finally pursue rhinoplasty. A surgical nose job can adjust the position of the nasal tip, reduce the size of the nostrils or make the base of the nose wider or narrower, depending on your preference. If needed, the surgeon can also adjust the septum inside the nose to create more balance and to allow you to breathe more easily.
There are a few things to consider before rhinoplasty. One is whether you’re a good candidate for the surgery or not. Part of being a good candidate involves understanding what the procedure can and cannot do for you. Rhinoplasty can help improve the way your nose looks or functions, but it won’t transform you into a completely different person. Still, you’re likely to feel more confident after surgery because you’re taking control of your life and appearance.
It’s also important to understand what the recovery process is like after rhinoplasty. Generally, you can expect to take about a week off from work. You’ll want to avoid a number of other activities during that week off, as well, such as swimming, vigorous exercise and other strenuous activities. Usually, you can resume a running routine about two weeks after surgery, but you should put off contact sports for a full six weeks.
One of the things that’s certain about life is this: as you go through life’s changes, your breasts are going to change, too. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss or gain can all lead to a change in the size of your breasts. The effects of gravity and fluctuations in breast size can also lead to breasts that are less perky than they were previously.
While many people think “breast augmentation” when they think of enhancing their busts, increasing the size of the breasts isn’t the only way to get some confidence back or to improve the appearance of the breasts. A breast lift, which elevates the breasts and restores them to a more youthful position, can also help you feel more confident.
During a breast lift, your surgeon will remove excess sagging skin from the area and will reshape the remaining tissue to create more uplifted, perkier breasts. Some women decide to have a breast lift performed alongside of a breast augmentation, but if you are happy with the size of your breasts, combining the surgeries isn’t necessary.
Recovery after the surgery takes about a week, and you’ll want to have someone around to help you with chores for at least the first two days. It’s also recommended that you have someone who’s able to pick you up and drive you home from the surgery since you won’t be able to drive yourself. A breast lift provides long-lasting results, although you might notice that the breasts do start to sag again as gravity and aging take their course.
Plenty of people resolve to lose those last five or 10 pounds at the beginning of the year. If that was you and you succeeded but still have areas of unwanted fat deposits, liposuction can be the procedure that helps you get the slimmer, sleeker body you want.
Although many people think that liposuction is designed to help you lose weight, it’s actually meant to put the finishing touches on a weight loss journey. Some types of fat just don’t respond to diet and exercise. The best way to eliminate that fat is to remove it permanently.
Your surgeon can perform liposuction on a number of areas of the body, from the abdomen and buttocks, to the upper arms and thighs. Depending on your goals, having the surgery in several areas at once might be the best option. You can also combine liposuction with other procedures, such as a breast lift or tummy tuck.
