6 Top Cosmetic Surgery Treatments of 2017

2 points

Over the years, new surgical techniques and advancements have had a period of intense anxiety and excitement by surgeons, public, as well as the media before they are fully accepted and incorporated. Even after gathering a lot of information about the new techniques and procedures, some people may still be hesitant.

Some of the trending cosmetic surgery treatments this year include breast lift, breast augmentation, laser hair removal, CoolScuplting, liposuction and smartlipo. In this digital era more and more people are becoming concerned in how they look. Let’s face it; nobody wants to grow old and alone. It’s good to feel young and attractive. Nonetheless, many people are increasingly going for the cosmetic procedures without even knowing what they entirely entail.

Breast lift

This is majorly performed by women with saggy breasts. This procedure entails a surgeon making some incisions around your breast to remove the excess skin as well as shift the areola and nipple to a higher position. The skin that was initially located above the areola is brought down to reshape the breast. 

Some of the risks from this procedure include infections, bleeding due to incision, and reactions to anaesthesia. 

Breast augmentation

This procedure is done by women who would want to enlarge their breast. During the procedure, a surgeon makes an incision that creates a pocket underneath the pectoral muscle for the implant to be placed. The patient can either select a silicone or saline implant. 

Some of the risks include infections, potential need for the implants to be removed in future, and scarring. 


This is a non-surgical, FDA-approved procedure that involves the freezing, or crystallizing, of resilient fat cells in the body causing them to die. From there, they are naturally eliminated and/or processed by the body. This effectively reduces the fat deposits in your problem areas. 

Unlike other convectional liposuction procedures, CoolScuplting is not invasive and you need not worry about being cut open or scarring. this procedure is extremely effective for getting rid of particular problems areas such as flabby arms, love handles, inner thighs, muffin tops, just to name a few. In just one CoolScuplting session, about 20% of the fat in the treated area is reduced. 

In addition, CoolScuplting has zero downtime. This means that you can go back to your day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure. 

Laser Hair Removal

From the name, it may sound very complicated and intimidating; however, it’s a very simple procedure. Firstly, the area you want hair to be removed is carefully and evenly shaved. Then, a laser is passed over it. The energy that is produced by the laser is absorbed by the pigments in the hair follicles, and this destroys the roots. With the destruction of the roots, it is impossible for more hair to be produced. 


Liposuction is a recommended surgical procedure that removes stubborn fat. In most cases, it involves removal of fat that is irresponsive to diet and exercise. The fat is usually suctioned from the legs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, breasts, arms, face, neck, and back through a small tube called cannula that is inserted into the skin. 

Liposuction is not a quick fix for instant weight loss, despite the fact that it is often characterized as one. It is always recommended that you exercise and diet in order to achieve your target weight. After that, you can decide whether you still need a liposuction procedure or not. To be a good candidate for the procedure, you need to be at least within 30% of your body weight. For best results, you should be – but not limited to – fit, a non-smoker, and active. Always discuss the expectations with your surgeon to ensure that they are as reasonable as possible. The cost of liposuction depends on a number of factors including the area to be treated and the procedure being used.

This is a laser-assisted liposuction procedure that is minimally invasive for the removal of extra fat deposits on the body or even face. One of the major reasons why people avoided the traditional liposuction procedure is because it involved cutting and opening your body so that the fat can be drained out. This left some scarring on the body of patients. 

This procedure is popular among its users because of the fact that it does not leave behind sagging skin; unlike other traditional procedures. The use of a laser, apart from just melting fat in the body, also tightens the skin. This prevents the skin to sag and maintains its elasticity. 


All in all, if you are considering having any kind of cosmetic procedures, always seek the services of a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon.
