The United States is becoming obsessed with improving their appearance through cosmetic surgery. Research from 2008 reports that over 10.2 million cosmetic procedures were preformed in the United States. 2009 showed over a half of a million dollars were spent on liposuction procedures, and also in that year, laser hair removal procedures accounted for 244 million dollars in revenue. Currently, there are approximately 2.95 million Botox patients in the United States.
Among the most popular of these cosmetic procedures in the U.S. are full body laser hair removal, tummy-tuck and liposuction, and breast augmentation. It is of no surprise that tummy -tucks and liposuction are so popular, the United States accounts for the fattest population in the entire world. These procedures are typical for patients who are very obese, to the point where normal day-to-day activities and tasks are almost impossible for them to complete without assistance. These procedure removes fat from the abdomen, and shapes the stomach to make it slimmer, and more attractive.
Breast augmentation procedures involve the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness, and projection of the breasts, or to improve symmetry of the breasts. Breast augmentation doctors help females who are not comfortable with the size or symmetry of their breasts, to surgically improve their breasts with breast implants. Breast augmentation recovery time typically includes a recovery period of 24 to 48 hours, and an additional reduced activity period of a few days. Breast augmentation recovery time and symptoms can vary from patient to patient, but usually patients experience swelling and soreness for a few weeks prior to the surgery.
Full body laser hair removal is also becoming very popular among cosmetic procedures. Individuals who have unwanted hair on their body can receive these procedures to remove the hair permanently. If you are not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering. Facial laser hair removal is also popular among laser hair removal procedures.
