Quite a few people have a lot of wrong ideas about what plastic surgery is, many even believe that actual plastic is injected in to the body, and because of this are unaware of how they can use plastic surgery to help themselves with reconstructive surgeries or how they can use it to help themselves achieve the look that they want for themselves. First of all the name comes from the Latin word Plastikos which means to mold, as plastic surgery reshapes parts of your body but does not actually inject you with plastic, the only procedure which injects a foreign particle is breast augmentations which insert saline, and only works on your body to change the shape of it to give it a natural look that you prefer. We will discuss some of the types of procedures you can get done through plastic surgery in San Antonio below.
One procedure, that is pretty well known, is the breast augmentation which through saline injections and careful surgical incisions can help you increase the size of your breasts and give them a perkier and more youthful look that you can feel more confident with.
Another procedure is the breast reduction surgery that women can use if they feel that their breasts have grown too large either naturally after puberty or have grown after a pregnancy. Very large breasts can cause extreme discomfort and can even create back ache after a while. This procedure cuts out excess fats and glandular tissues to give you more comfortable and proportionate breasts.
A tummy tuck is a form of body contouring surgery, in a tummy tuck you can get rid of any excess lumpy skin that just hangs loose. Many people get loose skin when they go through weight loss and it can be difficult to get rid of it without a tummy tuck.
