Plastic surgery allows individuals to change and enhance their appearance, including facial features, body, and skin. Technology and scientific growth have made plastic surgeries more accessible, efficient, and affordable. At Somerset Plastic Surgery, we conduct quality procedures in a safe and comfortable environment, helping people achieve their desired looks. Here are nine popular plastic surgeries you can get at our clinic:

1. Breast Augmentation

A woman’s breasts undergo various changes as they age and experience pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breasts can lose their volume and produce loose skin. Some women may also naturally have small breasts and desire a fuller look. Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery that involves placing implants under each breast to enhance their size, shape, and fullness. Implants may contain a saline solution or silicone gel, and the surgery typically takes one to two hours. We’ll advise you on the appropriate implant size, shape, and placement for a natural-looking result.

2. Breast Reduction

While some women desire larger breasts, others may experience discomfort and pain due to their size. Large breasts can cause improper posture, back, shoulder, and neck pain, as well as skin irritation from bra straps. They may also limit physical activities. Breast reduction plastic surgery reduces breast size by removing excess skin, fat, and tissue. This procedure can alleviate discomfort and improve overall body proportions. It takes two to four hours, depending on the reduction needed. 

3. Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping)

Rhinoplasty plastic surgery aims to improve the appearance and function of the nose. It can correct aesthetic concerns like a large or small noses, bumps or depressions on the bridge of the nose, or an irregularly shaped tip. Rhinoplasty can also address breathing difficulties caused by structural issues in the nose. The surgery involves making incisions inside the nostrils or across the tissue between the nostrils to access and reshape the underlying bone and cartilage. We perform this procedure under local or general anesthesia, taking one to two hours. It’s usually an outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home the same day.

4. Facelift

Aging, stress, and environmental factors can cause wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of facial volume. A facelift addresses these issues by removing any excess fat and skin and tightening the underlying muscles to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. It can also be combined with other procedures like neck lift, brow lift, and eyelid surgery for a comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Your plastic surgeon will make incisions along the hairline and behind the ears to access and lift the deeper tissues. They will then re-drape the skin and remove any excess before closing the incisions. The result is a more defined jawline, fewer wrinkles, and improved facial contours.

5. Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Your eyes are often the first part of the face to show signs of aging. The skin around the eyes can become lax, causing droopy eyelids, bags under the eyes, and wrinkles. Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids, creating a more rested and youthful appearance. This procedure can also improve vision for those whose sagging eyelids obstruct their view. The surgeon makes incisions along the eyelids’ natural creases to minimize scarring. The surgery takes 45 minutes to a few hours, depending on the extent of correction required.

6. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and aging can result in loose abdominal skin and weakened abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin and tightens the underlying muscles to create a flatter and smoother abdominal profile. This procedure is popular among women who have experienced multiple pregnancies or individuals who have lost significant weight. The surgeon makes a horizontal incision along the lower abdomen, above the pubic area, and removes excess skin. They may also reposition the belly button for a natural look. Recovery can range from two weeks to several months, with proper diet and exercise recommended for optimal results.

7. Liposuction

Liposuction plastic surgery removes stubborn fat deposits in specific body areas. These may include the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, knees, chin, cheeks, and neck. The surgeon uses a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to suction out the fat through small incisions in the skin. Liposuction can improve body proportions and contours, creating a more sculpted and toned appearance. It is often combined with procedures like a tummy tuck or breast reduction for a comprehensive result. Several liposuction techniques exist, including the super-wet method, tumescent, and ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Your surgeon will choose the most suitable one for your needs.

8. Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Sagging skin and excess fat can also affect the upper arms, creating a “bat wing” appearance. This concern is common among individuals who have lost significant weight or with aging. An arm lift removes excess tissue and tightens the underlying muscles to create more toned and defined arms. The surgeon makes incisions on the inside of the arms, from the armpit to the elbow, and removes excess skin and fat. They may also perform liposuction for better contouring. You may need to wear compression garments for a few weeks to reduce swelling and promote healing. 

9. Botox

Botox is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting small botulinum toxin amounts into specific facial muscles. This protein temporarily blocks nerve signals, relaxing the muscles and reducing wrinkles and fine lines like crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. Botox is a quick and effective way to rejuvenate the face and achieve a youthful appearance. Results can last three to four months, making repeated treatments necessary for maintenance.
