With a variety of different procedures available, people can go under the knife for anything from a cosmetic nose job to reconstructive surgery after a serious trauma. Some procedures are more popular than others, and below, we’ve listed out the most common cosmetic procedures requested of our plastic surgeon in Raleigh, NC.

Liposuction: Many people suffer from being overweight and despite the switch to a healthy and more active lifestyle; it isn’t always easy to lose their desired amount of weight. Liposuction can help patients achieve the body of their dreams, as it targets all of those hard to reach areas and excess fat deposits.

Eyelid Surgery: Age and genetics can cause our eyelids to have a drooping, hooded appearance with which many people are unhappy. Opting for eyelid surgery allows them to reconstruct their lids to be more visually appealing. This surgery can also improve vision if the eyelids are drooping severely.

Breast Augmentation: Possibly the most popular of all plastic surgery procedures, breast augmentation is sought after by women of all ages. For a variety of reasons, women will request breast augmentation to enhance or enlarge their breasts, fill any deflated appearances, and correct asymmetry. This procedure can greatly improve a woman’s confidence, especially if their body is not the shape it used to be due to childbirth or aging.

Rhinoplasty: Both men and women can spend their whole lives dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose. Often, we can be born with noses that are crooked, bumpy, or too wide or narrow. Rhinoplasty allows us to repair the cosmetic appearance of the nose and even the slightest alteration can make a huge difference in one’s facial appearance.
