What kind of plastic surgeries are there?

It can be said that plastic surgeries are divided into two categories, the first one being reconstructive, which has the characteristic of correcting physical conditions. It is generally reserved for patients who have suffered some kind of injury or congenital anomalies, either to improve the function or to improve the appearance of a body part.

On the other hand, there is cosmetic surgery, which is a series of procedures aimed at reshaping parts of the body. In other words, it does not matter if you are completely healthy, cosmetic surgery can help you make a part of your body that you are not happy with more beautiful.

Which are the most common procedures?

In cosmetic and reconstructive procedures some stand out more than others, however; on this occasion the most common aesthetic procedures will be highlighted.

Breast Surgery

Within these services are the reduction mammoplasty, breast augmentation and breast lift. As the name implies, breast reduction is intended to remove excess fat and glandular tissue from the body, in addition to excess skin, and is commonly requested by women who wish to eliminate pain and discomfort from their body.

Augmentation Mammoplasty

Through mammary implants or fat transfer, breast augmentation is achieved, giving them a more symmetrical and rounded shape. It is a very common procedure in patients who have suffered from breast cancer, but it is also one of the most requested aesthetic procedures.

Breast Lift

Mastopexy is ideal for those who have very sagging breasts and do not feel comfortable with it. In these cases, excess skin is removed and the surrounding tissue is tightened to reshape the breast, resulting in a much more aesthetic contour.

Body surgery

Among the most relevant aesthetic procedures in the body are: buttock augmentation, liposuction and abdominoplasty. But it is also usual to perform procedures to rearrange the body after the patient has lost several pounds, such as torsoplasty, brachioplasty and lifting of the internal muscles.

In the case of men, they usually look for procedures that make their body look more muscular and aesthetically attractive. Some of the main ones are: abdominal etching, mentoplasty and pectoral augmentation. But, there are also procedures to correct some side effects of overweight and hyperestrogenism, such as gynecomastia.

Facial Procedures

In order to achieve a more aesthetic face, there are several people who request plastic surgeries specifically for it, in some cases they only require a facelift, while in others an eyelid surgery is necessary to make their face look as they would like. In other cases, a simple eyebrow lift is enough to make their face look more youthful.


In the case of a facelift, one of the main advantages is that it can help the person look much younger. This is because it improves the flaccidity and wrinkles that are present in the face and neck of the patient.

Eyelid surgery

Blepharoplasty is used to improve the way the upper eyelids look, depending on the lower eyelids or both. What is sought with this surgery, is to treat the folds that are near the eyes, bags under the eyes and other common problems such as excess skin or wrinkles.

Revision rhinoplasty

It can be said that it is a fairly complex procedure, so not just any plastic surgeon Tijuana can perform it. It is necessary to be qualified to perform any of the procedures we have talked about, but in the case of rhinoplasty it requires skill in addition to knowledge.

Non-surgical procedures?

It is becoming more and more common for professional clinics to offer non-surgical procedures in addition to surgical procedures. Although this is as long as the alternatives are that, besides working, can really offer a solution to the patients for the problem they have.

Among these kinds of services are fillers, laser hair removal, IPL, botox and hand rejuvenation. In addition, depending on the clinic you can also find treatments such as CO2 laser skin resurfacing.  

The advantage of non-surgical treatments is that it is not necessary to undergo surgery to get the results you are looking for. But it is necessary to go to a professional, because not all are qualified to offer this kind of service.

Things you should know

All plastic surgeries have a degree of difficulty, that is why it is necessary to have the guidance of a professional, otherwise it could be counterproductive. Even though cosmetic surgeries are a good alternative to achieve some beauty standards, the procedure is not the same for everyone.

Therefore, you cannot expect to look the same as someone else, but it is possible to look like a more aesthetic version of yourself.
