Cosmetic plastic surgery is performed in order to change one's appearance. For some, it may mean redesigning the body's contour and shape, the elimination of wrinkles, or eliminating balding areas. Others may choose varicose vein treatment or breast augmentation. There are a number of cosmetic surgery procedures that men and women can choose from in order to create an image that makes them feel more confident and comfortable with their appearance.
Although health insurance rarely covers the cost of cosmetic procedures, the number of individuals deciding to undergo cosmetic plastic surgery continues to grow. The top five cosmetic surgeries are breast augmentation, liposuction, nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, and tummy tuck.
Further, it is not just women who are opting to enhance their appearance through surgery. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of men seeking these services is on the rise.
