More people are becoming open-minded about cosmetic procedures and are turning to a Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeon to improve their looks and, more importantly, feel better about themselves. With the advancements in technology, it is now safer and easier than ever to achieve the look you always dreamed of and enhance your natural features. What are the most popular plastic surgeries, and which will you do to enhance your beauty?


This cosmetic procedure reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and other signs of aging. During a facelift, your skin and face will literally be tightened and smoothed out. To hold the skin in place, sutures will be placed along the incision lines, which you can remove ten days after your procedure.

It’s true what they say about facelifts: you will look worse before you look better. At first, you will have bruising and swelling which should completely heal approximately two weeks after the surgery. During the healing/recovery process, you will quickly see positive results.

Eyelid Surgery

As people age, their skin begins to sag, and the effects are more noticeable in some areas than others. Eyelids, the most delicate skin on the face, tend to noticeably droop as people age. If you wish to return your eyes to a more youthful appearance, consider eyelid surgery on the lower and upper eyelids.

After your surgery, you will experience some bruising and mild swelling. You will also experience dry eyes and irritation. During recovery, it is recommended that you wear dark sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun, and avoid wearing contacts for a few weeks. You should be able to resume your normal activities no more than one week after your surgery.

Neck Lift

Another popular cosmetic procedure is the neck lift. Much like the eyes, your neck is often the first and most noticeable part of the body to experience signs of aging. As people get older, they start to lose elasticity in their skin, which causes sagging. You may also develop more and deeper horizontal lines. If you look in the mirror and wish for a younger-looking neck, turn your wish into a reality by scheduling an appointment at our med spa in Fort Lauderdale. The surgery involves removing excess skin to create a smoother neck and more defined jawline.

Recovery will take a few weeks and you are recommended not to perform any heavy lifting during the first few weeks.

Breast Augmentation

A popular cosmetic procedure is breast augmentation, where women enhance the size of their breasts. The procedure involves the placement of breast implants, either silicone or saline (sometimes fat), to increase the size and improve the shape of their breasts. The implant is generally inserted behind the breast tissue. After the procedure, you will experience pain but you will be prescribed extra pain relief medication during recovery. As you recover, it is strongly recommended that you wear a support garment or bra, as this will facilitate your healing. Additionally, you should avoid heavy lifting and high-impact activities (i.e., exercise) for the first few weeks.

Breast Reduction

If you believe your breast size is too large and you struggle with everyday activities as a result, you may benefit from a breast reduction. Although it is not as popular as breast augmentation, breast reduction has grown in popularity over the last few years. During the procedure, excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin are removed from the breast to decrease its size. The breast is then reshaped and repositioned.

Like breast augmentation and most cosmetic procedures, patients will experience pain, tenderness, and sensitivity during recovery. When patients follow their doctor’s instructions, the pain should go away after a few weeks.
