Plastic Makes Perfect


The Four Hottest Plastic Surgery Procedures In The US

Buttock Implants

What It Is

A big hit in South America since the 1960s, it has finally picked up speed in the US, becoming part of the fashion trend that dictates full figures are all the rage again. This complicated and expensive procedure promises you a fuller and more rounded behind that could rival even JLo's. Silicon gel is not approved for buttock implants, so set solid implants are used instead. So even though tl look of your new pert bottom will be pleasing to the eye, it will not feel as soft or natural, but harder at more "masculine" instead.

Ideal For

Women who wish to achieve a more curvaceous figure like JLo or Beyonce Knowles, even for more mature women who would like restore their sagging glares with a youthful lift.

Cohesive Gel Breast Implants

What It Is

Move over saline and silicone breast implants - the new kid on the block when it comes to getting the most natural looking breast augmentations is the gummy bear implant or cohesive gel implant, as it is known clinically This new implant has all the advantages of traditional silicone implants, but minus the two biggest complaints - rupture and leakage. Instead, these semi-solid gel implants feel softer and more natural while maintaining their shape, which reduces the chances of the implant shell folding and the development of rippling.

Ideal For

Women thinking about breast augmentation. but who dont want the hardness and unnatural feel to their breasts after the procedure.

The Hand Lift

What It Is

Nothing reveals a woman's true age faster than her hands. And as we age, the far in our hands chins out, resulting in our bones and veins appearing more prominent. Now, plastic surgeons are able to cake fat cells from another part of the body (often the abdomen) and immediately inject it into the hands. And because the skin on the backs of our hands isn't as tightly attached, it is very easy to spread the fat out to the entire back of the hands with just two or three injections.

Ideal For

Mature women or even women who are generally on the thin side.

The Cosmo Face Lift

What It Is

Medically called Sutures Suspension SMAS Lift or SSSL it is said to be superior to similar procedures of the past, such as the Thread Lift and the Feather Lift. Done under local anaesthesia, the threads are inserted into the muscles that help form your facial expressions. The result? Immediate long lasting lifting as it helps tighten drooping brows, cheeks, jowls and neck.

Unlike traditional facelifts that use an "open" surgical technique, this new procedure uses non-absorbable sutures introduced through a needle to the sub-dermal facial layer to tighten and elevate without visible scarring.

However, expert warns of some potential side effects from this procedure. With the threads being placed in the muscles, there is a possibility of injuring the facial nerve, resulting in an expressionless you. This may happen when the needle or threads accidentally hit a branch of the nerve and damage it. When this happens, the nerve is unable to allow for any movement of the facial muscles, and you are unable to smile, frown, laugh or cry normally.

Ideal For

Women between the ages of 35 and 65, who want to instantly reverse the effects of gravity, but who are afraid of scarring.
