Three of the top five cosmetic procedures in the US all focus on the face. Nose reshaping is the most popular, eyelid surgery is the second, and facelifts are the third. This isn’t surprising in our video-conferencing and selfie-taking society.
These procedures are all examples of invasive cosmetic surgery. But did you know that there are lots of non-surgical alternatives to going under the knife too? Other options might be better for your bank balance and are less invasive.
Here are some surgical and non-surgical methods available for the same issues. Then you can choose the best option for you!
A facelift is a surgical operation often requested by older people. This procedure tightens the facial skin to lessen the appearance of wrinkles.
That’s the cosmetic surgery option, but there are lots of non-surgical ways to remove wrinkles too. Botox injections are a popular alternative as well as dermal fillers, Ultherapy and micro-needling.
Botox and dermal filler both smooth out wrinkles by plumping up the skin with an injected substance. Ultherapy and micro-needling encourage collagen production and new skin tissue. This is to give you a more youthful, less wrinkled appearance.
Chin augmentation is a cosmetic surgery that defines and enhances the shape and definition of your chin. This could be a double chin reduction, jawline shaping, or jaw implant insertion.
All non-surgical chin augmentation options either involve the use of dermal filler or a fat-burning formula. Dermal filler, when injected in the right areas, can help give your jawline a more prominent shape. Fat-burning formulas like Kybella could remove the fat in your chin area but you might still have excess skin.
Rhinoplasty is the correct term for this cosmetic procedure but everyone knows it as a nose job. This describes the reshaping and reconstruction of the nose’s shape.
It might seem like there is no alternative for restructuring a nose, but that’s not the case. Filler injections on the bridge of the nose can smooth it out which may enhance the appearance of your nose in profile. This non-surgical technique can also help make noses appear more symmetrical.
Though facial cosmetic surgeries are the most popular, fat reduction surgeries are also common. Procedures like a “tummy tuck” or liposuction involve removing fat via incisions into the skin.
But there are many non-surgical fat reduction options. These often involve freezing, ultrasound technology, or radiofrequency to burn fat cells. You may need several treatments to achieve the results you want via these methods.
