Cosmetic Skin Surgery: From Permanent Makeup To Scar Removal
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When people hear the words “plastic surgery,” they automatically think of breast augmentation, tummy tucks and other bodywork, but cosmetic surgery can be so much more than just that. Skin saving surgeries meant to reduce the amount of hair or pigmentation, reshape the face or reduce wrinkles or scarring are all very popular procedures and can make a world of difference in a person’s self-esteem. Cosmetic skin surgery for the face can be practically non-invasive to the more complicated depending on the extent of the work being done and the procedure itself.

Of course, everyone is familiar with the facelift, a procedure that was once reserved for the very rich and famous as they fought to extend careers for just a few more years. This is a very serious operation with a fairly extended recuperative period and should not be taken lightly. Because it is a more invasive procedure, it is often one of the more expensive ones available and some people will opt for the less expensive mini-facelift or settle for just an eye-lift.

Reshaping the contours of the face can be done by a skilled plastic surgeon, and the rhinoplasty or nose job is probably one of the most common procedures to be done. Not only can the shape and size of the nose be changed, so too can the shape of the eyelids, (popular with some Asian women who want to appear more Western), shape of the cheeks and of course, the lips. Reworking the face can be done after accidents to rebuild a damaged face as well.

Some of the least extensive procedures are for minor wrinkles, hair removal or for color correction and are done with lasers rather than by cutting. Skin imperfections, minor scarring and small wrinkles can be corrected with micordermabrasion, where part of the top layer of skin is removed.

Chemical peels can also be used for excess pigmentation and for mild acne, although these can be harsh and may be too intense for those with very sensitive skin. Laser hair removal is faster and in some cases less painful than the old standby electrolysis, and may often be less expensive as well.

Cosmetic skin surgery may be required to remove an old and unwanted tattoo, which is usually done with repeated applications of a laser to remove the imbedded pigmentation. In some cases the tattoo will not be completely removed and some scarring may be possible.

At the other end of the spectrum is permanent makeup that is basically a tattoo of sorts for the eyes, cheeks or lips. You never have to apply or remove cosmetics again, although the drawback may be that you have less opportunity to change your makeup to suit the occasion or your mood.

Having any work done on your skin should be thought about carefully. Ask questions and do not leave until you are satisfied with the answer. This is your skin that we are talking about, so treat it well.
