Plastic surgery is a billion dollar industry. Each year, millions of women and men spend billions of dollars on plastic surgery. Thanks to the glorification of plastic surgery in the media some procedures are familiar to almost everyone such as rhinoplasty and breast augmentation. What many people don’t know is that plastic surgery and procedures are of many different types far and beyond these popular ones.
Here is a rundown of 4 unusual plastic surgery procedures you can ask for.
1. Cinderella Surgery
If your heels are too cramped for the toes you can have your toes shortened surgically and fat injected into the bottom of your feet.
The procedure involves the dislocation of the toe then sawing out a 2-milimeter piece of bone. Surgeons then use a titanium rod to bring back together the shortened bone. Consumers are also using fat liposuctioned from their stomach to plump up the soles of their feet.
If you plan to undergo the procedure, you should be aware that they can result in chronic pain, permanent nerve damage, and even scarring. Ensure that you consult a specialist doctor or podiatrist since many surgeons don’t like performing the procedure.
2. Golf Ball Chin
If you love to frown, you risk developing a ‘golf ball chin,’ which is a dimpled texture resulting from scrunching your chin too much.
The great news is that there is an effective and inexpensive solution for this. Botox can be injected safely into the lower part of your chin to allow for the relaxation of the mentalis muscle thus creating a smoother skin in the chin overall.
Many doctors have warned that muscles may be weakened as a result of undergoing the procedure and the results might be hard to maintain.
3. Cankle Liposuction
It might come as a surprise to you, but it is possible to use liposuction to address thick, short ankles known as cankles.
Surgeons have experienced success with the technique designed to get rid of excess fat from the lower leg to create a sexier, slimmer silhouette. The ankle is however delicate, and the procedure is not performed widely.
If you plan to undergo the procedure you should know that any surgery on your ankles can lead to excessive swelling, pain, and prolonged recovery.
4. Hand Lift
The hands are some of the first parts of the body to age. As we age, the skin on the hands starts losing fat becoming bony and thinner with prominent wrinkles and veins.
The hand lift is a non-surgical procedure that takes just a few minutes to complete. The plastic surgeon injects synthetic filler under the first layer of skin to smooth out any wrinkles and plump the skin. Patients can start moving their fingers immediately after completion of the procedure, and you can expect results to last for between 9 and 12 months.
It turns out that as soon as you think you have heard or seen it all, something comes along and blows your mind. The 4 cosmetic surgery procedures discussed here are enough to blow anyone’s mind. Still, if you would like to undergo the procedures, it is your decision to make.
