In general, women with a positive mindset and sensible objectives are suitable candidates for cosmetic surgical procedures. It’s important to note that cosmetic surgeries are a highly personal decision. Regardless of the procedure you may elect to undergo, it should only be done for yourself and never to meet somebody else’s goals or to try to fit a perfect image.
Breast augmentation entails the use of breast implants to enhance the size of the breasts. The popular procedure can also regain breast volume that has been lost due to pregnancy or weight loss, attain a more rounded shape, and to establish symmetry.
A breast lift simply raises up the breasts by eliminating excess skin and tightening up the surrounding tissues to reshape and give support to the new contours.
Breast reduction involves the removal of extra fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breasts to achieve a size that’s more proportional to the body. Another purpose for breast reduction is to relieve the discomfort caused by overly large breasts.
Fat Grafting and Breast Augmentation
Fat transfer for breast augmentation involves using liposuction to remove fat from other areas of the body and then injecting it into the breasts to make them larger. This type of breast augmentation is an option for women who want a fairly small increase in their breast size.
Face and Neck
A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that reduces telltale signs of aging in the face and neck. It’s very effective for correcting
- *Sagging facial skin.
- *Deep fold lines around the corner of the mouth and the base of the nose.
- *Jowls and jawlines that have lost definition.
- *Excess fat and loose skin of the neck that appears as a double chin.
Officially known as rhinoplasty, nose surgery restores facial harmony and the dimensions of the nose. Additionally, it may restore better breathing that’s caused by structural flaws with the nose.
Facial Balancing, Implants
Facial implants provide balance and improved proportion to the face. If you’re looking to improve features such as a small chin, weak jawline or general lack of an appealing facial shape, then cosmetic surgery with facial implants could be a solution for you.
This type of surgical procedure is to enhance the shape of the chin either with a facial implant or reductive surgery on bone tissue.
The goal of cheek augmentation is to add volume or lift to the cheeks. Surgical options for enhancing the cheeks are typically fat grafting or cheek implants. Some women are concerned if their cheeks have lost volume and begin sag with age. Others never develop adequate volume in their cheeks and are bothered by cheeks that may appear too flat or thin.
Laser Treatments and Minimally Invasive Treatments
Among the most selected procedures at the Women’s Institute Geneva IL, spider vein treatment entails the injection of a solution into each affected vein. The solution causes the vein to collapse and fade with time.
Hair Removal Procedure
A non-invasive technique, laser hair removal utilizes a highly concentrated light beam to penetrate hair follicles and prevent further hair growth. The laser is absorbed into the pigment inside the hair shafts of the follicles.
Laser Skin Tightening
Because of the unavoidable process of aging, everyone’s skin loses the firm tone of youth with the passage of time. For many women, the common signs of aging are sagging skin, wrinkles and less facial definition that results as the body produces less collagen. Fortunately, the Women’s Institute Geneva IL offers laser skin tightening solutions for our patients. Performed on an outpatient basis, skin tightening is minimally invasive and doesn’t require the use of anesthesia. Basically, the laser instrument used for tightening stimulate the growth of collagen, which helps restore healthier skin tone and more youthful appearance.
This form of cosmetic treatment, which is minimally abrasive, uses a laser instrument to lightly sand the skin for removal of uneven outer layers. Effective for treating light scars, discolored patches, sun spots, stretch marks, age spots and patches of darkened skin. The pleasing result is a refreshed look that leaves the patient looking younger.
Dermabrasion and dermaplaning are generally used to enhance and smooth facial skin scarring and facial wrinkles around the mouth. Very effective for the “refinishing” of the facial skin’s upper layers through a technique of controlled and precise surgical scraping. Dermabrasion treatments soften the sharp edges of surface skin irregularities. The result is a smoother, renewed appearance.
Dermal Fillers and Botox
Injectable dermal fillers plump up thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, diminish wrinkles and generally improve facial appearance. A convenient and simple process, dermal filler injections take just a few minutes per site for injection, massage and evaluation. Additional fillers are added as needed.
Among the most well-known cosmetic products, Botox is a nonsurgical injection that temporarily minimizes fine facial lines and facial wrinkles. The most frequently treated areas are frown lines, forehead lines, lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes.
Liposuction slims and restores contour to certain areas of the body by removing fat tissue deposits. Liposuction is most commonly performed on the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, knees, arms, neck, chin and cheeks. The procedure is designed to remove fat tissue that is resistant to conventional efforts like healthy exercise and diet.
The makers of Botox and Juvéderm have introduced a product designed to lengthen, thicken and darken eye lashes. Latisse is a prescriptive treatment that may be obtained after an analysis at the Women’s Institute Geneva. Latisse can be applied once daily at home.
