What types of treatments are available?

Cosmetic surgery covers a wide range of treatments to enhance or refine the form and shape of the body and face. There are many reasons for wanting surgery, including changes caused by body development in young people, such as prominent ears, large nose, small or excessively large breasts. In middle or later years, patients may want to address sagging of the face, baggy eyelids, drooping breasts or loose skin on the trunk or tummy. Cosmetic surgery is not generally the answer to excessive weight, but procedures such as tummy tuck, breast uplift, total body lift, thigh lift and arm reduction can be beneficial after weight loss. Likewise, liposuction may be used to improve body contour.
