Gone are the days when you could spot somebody who had plastic surgery procedures with ease. Now, cosmetic and reconstructive procedures are quite common, and many do not even require invasive measures. Instead, injection and laparoscopic practices are widely available. Though many plastic surgery options exist, some are more popular than others.


1. Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty)

One of the most common plastic surgery procedures is breast augmentation. During the procedure, the surgeon makes an incision below the breast and positions the implant between the breast tissue and chest muscle or behind both. Between the breast and muscle is the more natural position. However, placing implants under the chest muscle also has its benefits, chiefly making it easier for doctors to administer breast exams or mammograms.
