It would be fair to assume that when somebody says the words ‘cosmetic surgery, the images that first come to mind are ones of operations like liposuction and breast augmentation that involve a degree of invasive technique and execution. What you should know, however, is that the majority of procedures that a cosmetic surgeon performs on a weekly basis are actually of the non-surgical variety.
There has been a huge increase in the number of different non-surgical options in recent years. To help you get a better picture of what the modern cosmetic surgery landscape actually looks like, here are four of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed by cosmetic surgeons in Los Angeles.
You might be more familiar with this by its more common name of Botox! It remains right at the top of the cosmetic procedure list year after year, mainly because it is a pretty much painless treatment to have, and its results are almost instant once any amount of small swelling or bruising has gone down. Botox is used to treat a number of different issues from wrinkles to textured skin to scarring, and its popularity shows no signs of slowing.
There is a wide range of dermal filler options available to cosmetic patients these days, and you can choose to change the appearance of everything from your lips to your cheeks to your jawline and much more. Whether you want a natural-looking boost or prefer to go ‘full pout’ mode, there will definitely be a filler brand that works best for what you need.
Non-Surgical Nose Job
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose but don’t want to go all the way in terms of traumatic plastic surgery, then a non-surgical alternative can be the perfect compromise. It is also known as a liquid nose job, and it is achieved with smartly placed injections that can alter the contouring and shaping of your nose without having to make any impact on the bone.
If you are having trouble with the texture, pigmentation, and overall health of your skin, then a chemical peel can be very helpful in improving things. The kinds of benefits that chemical peels can help to provide include smoother skin, evening out uneven skin tone, clearing up serious skin breakouts, and reducing the appearance of both premature aging and appropriate aging! Chemical peels are incredibly affordable these days and can be a good alternative for someone who doesn’t want to explore dermal fillers just yet.
