Common surgical procedures
Besides the classic varicose vein operation on the legs, procedures on the chest and waist region are also very common. These include liposuction, abdominoplasty and breast augmentation, reduction or lifting.
What is cosmetic surgery?
The term cosmetic surgery covers all operations that are performed to improve or rejuvenate the external appearance. (ACREDIS, http://www.acredis.com/schoenheitsoperationen/begriff-schoenheitsoperation, 30.08.2013). In the chest and waist region, these include liposuction, abdominoplasty ("tummy tuck"), breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lifting and the treatment of gynaecomastia (development of a female breast form in men).
Am I beautiful?
We all want to look good. That's perfectly normal. That's why we do sports, watch our diet and invest in creams, cosmetics and a good hairdresser. But in some areas we come up against our limits. For example, those stubborn fatty pads that stick to the tummy, legs and bottom, resist every diet and are immune to physical exercise. Or if we, as women, want to have a bigger, a smaller or at least a tighter bust, for example, after a pregnancy. In such cases, there is only one thing that helps: cosmetic surgery. This achieves very good results in combination with clever compression treatment.
