While plastic surgery in general involves restoring or altering a person’s appearance, cosmetic surgery in particular is focused on enhancing normal appearance by improving proportions, shape and symmetry. Cosmetic plastic surgery can be performed on all areas of the body, but the most commonly treated and enhanced areas are:
- Eyelids – upper and lower eyelids
- Nose – rhinoplasty
- Chin – chin reshaping / augmentation
- Breast enhancement – augmentation (enlargement), reduction, lifting
- Body contouring – liposuction, abdominoplasty.
