This is the age in which we can change and manipulate almost everything about ourselves. Since ancient times, it has been the dream of humanity to figure out a way to prolong youth. Similarly, up until the 21st century, all the ways people came up with to tackle cosmetic and surgical procedures met with scrutiny. Even the words “plastic surgery” became a stigmatized term that inevitably strikes fear in the hearts of everyone. However, that is not the case in 2020, especially with the advent of plastic surgery in Dubai and the Western hemisphere.
Since the past few years especially, cosmetic procedures are becoming more and more common around the world. According to ISAPS reports, almost 11 million procedures were done in 2018 alone. The report was sure to specify this to be the number of surgical procedures. Here are the most demanded cosmetic procedures in the world:
With over 1.8 million procedures done worldwide, breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic procedure in the world. Not only is the procedure safer than ever, but the results are also more reliable than they have been previously. You can get a breast augmentation in the UAE and in many other places all over the world. For the mothers who have recently had babies and want to get some adjustments, cosmetic surgeons offer their services.
The procedure is very simple. Firstly, you need to make sure that you discuss with your medical expert about all your medical history. Only then will they be able to make a well-informed decision that will result in the best for you. Now that you have an appointment and are asked to observe a few precautions and restrictions, you have to wait. These restrictions can include alcohol consumption and dietary precautions to prepare for situations involving anesthesia, etc.
On the day of the surgery, you will be taken to the operating room. The surgeon will make a small incision. You can discuss where this will be; whether under or on the side of your breast. Then, the surgeon will insert the silicone implant behind the breast and stitch it up once it’s in position.
The second most demanded cosmetic surgery in the world is liposuction with over 1.7 million procedures done worldwide in 2018. The numbers seem to be growing at roughly 10% if we consider the numbers in 2017.
Liposuction is the removal of fat from areas such as the hips, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and even the neck. Many people call it body contouring as well since the procedure is like making simple edits to the body. Lately, the procedure is gaining popularity due to the advanced technology they use and the results obtained. It’s imperative that people understand that it’s not a solution for being overweight. You can only qualify to be a candidate if you have fat deposits making certain areas fatter than the rest.
The procedure involves four techniques that the expert chooses from depending upon your case. The liposuction can be:
Common liposuction or Tumescent liposuction has the surgeon injecting a sterile solution that removes the fat from the area. You get painkillers to help you through the pain. Then, the surgeon uses the cannula (a thin tube connected to a vacuum) to suck fat and fluids. You can get an IV after you’re done too. Advanced procedures use different and more effective ways to accomplish the same task.
As we grow older, our eyelids stretch and this appears to be saggy when we look at old people. Similarly, this saggy skin can be a problem for young children and even teenagers as well as blurs vision. This was a problem for almost 1.1 million people in the world that opted for blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. Needless to say, the results were positively great and satisfying for the patients. And thus, blepharoplasty becomes the third most common cosmetic procedure in the world.
Once you ask the surgeon for the appointment, you’ll follow the standard protocols and follow the doctor’s orders. On the operating table, the surgeon will first perform the surgery on the upper eyelids. You’ll have the surgeons cutting the eyelid open and removing excess muscle, skin, and fat. The same is done in the lower eyelids by making an incision right below the eyelashes.
There is no telling how high these numbers will go in times to come. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures amount to almost 12 million in numbers performed in 2018 alone. Top procedures like botulinum toxin, hyaluronic acid, hair removal, and Hydrafacial Dubai offers plenty of surgeons who are getting famous. The demand is growing and will continue to grow as these procedures get further upgraded with new equipment and knowledge.
