Common Procedures Performed By A Cosmetic Surgeon

Cosmetic SurgeonCosmetic surgery includes nonsurgical and surgical procedures that are used to alter normal structures of the body to boost self-esteem and enhance appearance.  Healthy individuals who have realistic expectations and a positive outlook are ideal candidates for cosmetic surgery.  A cosmetic procedure is a personal choice; therefore, the decision should be made by the individual and should not be done to fulfill the desire of another person or in an attempt to fit an ideal image.  Since cosmetic surgery is elective, health insurance typically does not cover it.


Often referred to as body sculpting, lipoplasty is a method of removing stubborn pockets of fat such as “love handles” and “saddle bags.”  The cosmetic surgeon simply makes a small incision and vacuums the fat out of the problem area.  Bruising, swelling and some numbness will be experienced.  The patient may be well enough to resume work a few days post operation, based on the amount of fat removed. Costs vary but they start around $2000.

Breast Implants

This procedure involves the implantation of saline-filled bags between the chest muscles and the chest wall or between the chest muscles and the breast tissue.  Individuals who undergo this procedure should be able to move around a day or two following the surgery.  However, they will probably not be able to take a bath for 3 to 7 days.  After about a week, individuals may be able to resume working but vigorous exercise should be avoided for 2 to 3 weeks.  The cost is approximately $3000 but it varies according to location and cosmetic surgeon.

Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum toxin or Botox injections are administered to smooth wrinkles around the eyes and frown lines.  The procedure paralyzes muscles in the forehead; therefore, there will be reduced movement of these muscles.  No major recovery is involved.  The patient may experience some amount of numbness, swelling and bruising but the majority of individuals simply gets their injections and goes on with their lives. The results are temporary and injections are required every 3 to 4 months.  Botox injections typically range between 300 and 400 dollars per treatment; however, they could cost more in certain locations.


More popularly referred to as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is done to reshape the eyelids.  The surgery is performed to tighten lose skin and remove bagginess around the eyelids; however, it does not eliminate fine wrinkle lines.  There will be some amount of bruising and swelling after the procedure.  Typically, the bruises disappear in 7 to 10 days.  Sometimes the swelling will last between 1 and 2 weeks.    Blurry vision may result for a few days post operation and patients may experience dry eyes or easily tear up.  The cost starts at approximately $2000 but could cost more than $4000, based on the required amount of reshaping and the cosmetic surgeon.


More commonly known as a nose job, rhinoplasty involves a plastic surgeon reshaping the nose of the patient.  This is performed by altering the bone and cartilage of the nose and removing skin.  Following a nose job, the patient should remain in bed for a day or two.  The patient will experience the brunt of the swelling and bruising in the first 3 days.  The swelling could remain noticeable for several weeks.  In approximately 7 days, most of the bruising should disappear.  The individual should be back to normal in 3 weeks or so.  The procedure costs approximately $4000 and it varies by location and cosmetic surgeon.

These are just a few of the procedures that are commonly carried out by a cosmetic surgeon on individuals who would like to enhance their look or undergo corrective surgery to fix a birth defect.

This is a surgical video of a breast reduction procedure and an abdominoplasty. We begin the video with Mr Richards introducing it, stating our patient has very large breasts. He will be using the “Free Nipple Technique” which is something he doesn’t use very often. It is only used for women with incredibly large breasts, where the nipple has to be moved a considerable distance. He also goes on to say he thinks it is one of the biggest breast reductions he has ever done.

We see the patient on the operating table, and Mr Richards shows the camera the actual size of the breasts, moving them around, which takes two hands, per breast, as they are too large for one hand to manoeuvre. The patient is only 5 ft. 2″ so her breasts are hugely out of proportion with the rest of her body. He also points out a scarred area within the overhanging fold of the breast on one side, which has been caused by inflammation of rubbing skin. He then moves on to discuss the freeing of the nipple, as he has to raise it 25cm. The first stage is to remove the nipple completely.

We skip to when the nipple has been physically removed, and it will be placed in saline before it is replaced as a skin graft. The areola has also been reduced during this phase. Next we skip to seeing the breast tissue already removed, with Mr Richards holding it in two hands. It is a huge quantity of tissue to be removed, and this is just from one breast. Next we see the breast completely sewn up, and it is time for Mr Richards to re-apply the nipple. He places the nipple on the breast, and draws around it. Next he takes the layer of skin off, within his nipple markings, ready to apply the nipple. The nipple will graft, and get a blood supply from the dermis, but first he needs to thin it out a bit, to give it the best chance possible of successfully grafting, as if it doesn’t graft, it could fall off, or go gangrenous.

After this stage, the right breast is virtually completed, and it is compared to the left, which has yet to be started. The right side was the larger breast, so less tissue has to be removed from the left side. The tissue removed from the right hand side weighed 3.9kg. We see some strange yellow foam on top of the nipple, which is called a tie-over, which is sewn on using stitches. This will apply pressure to the nipple, helping it graft with the tissue. This will be changed after a week.

The incisions have all been glued, so the right breast is completely finished now. The process is repeated for the left breast, just with slightly less tissue removed. This part of the procedure is skipped over mainly, as it is very much the same as the other side, before we move onto the tummy tuck part of the operation. Mr Richards shows the overhanging tissue which he will remove, and he grabs the tissue within his markings, emphasising the area he will remove during the surgery.

We then skip to the end of the procedure, with all aspects completed. The patient has her tape and dressings applied, along with the tie-overs on both nipples. Mr Richards does a short outro, showing the tissue removed from the stomach, and then has the breast tissue removed in a container. He picks up the container, with all the tissue coming to a combined weight of 9.1kg. He states how heavy it is for him to pick up, and how he wouldn’t like to be carrying it around for more than a few minutes, so for our patient, who constantly had to deal with all this excess weight, it must have been a real chore to contend with, especially with 5 children.
