What Types of Cosmetic Surgery Should You Consider?

Nearly all of us have at one time or another thought about cosmetic surgery. After all, everyone has something that they are self-conscious about, and nowadays, there are ways to change pretty much everything. But should you go under the knife? And which procedures should you choose?


Liposuction is a very popular type of cosmetic surgery, because it’s non-invasive and recovery is usually straightforward. There are a number of areas of the body where you can have liposuction:

  • Stomach
  • Thighs and saddlebags
  • Calves and ankles
  • Face

Lipo is good for those areas that can’t be slimmed through diet and exercise and where stubborn fat is located.

Nose reshaping

Ask people what they don’t like about their face and many of them will answer that they dislike their nose. Whether you feel that it’s too big for your face, or that it needs reshaping or straightening, nose surgery (called ศัลยกรรมจมูกสวย in Thai) can make a big difference. Nose surgery can usually be done fairly quickly and doesn’t have a very long recovery time, simply make sure you use a qualified, experienced surgeon.

Tummy tuck

A tummy tuck is an option for those who want to smooth their silhouette. It’s popular with women who’ve had children and want to get back into shape, as this is a difficult area to change with exercise alone. Tummy tucks can be quite a major surgery, so often require a couple of weeks off work, so you need to ensure you’re ready for the big recovery before you get it done. However, they can have a dramatic result and it can be worth the effort.

Breast enlargements and reductions

Some of the most common types of cosmetic surgery for women include breast enlargements, reductions, or lifts.

Whether you’re unhappy with the shape or size of your bust, or it has simply changed over time due to natural factors such as ageing, there are many reasons why you may not be happy with your breasts. Surgery in this area does tend to come with risks and a fairly long recovery, but again, you can get excellent results and feel better about your body, so many women find that it’s worth it.

Cosmetic surgery is growing in popularity due to it becoming much simpler and with lesser recovery time. But every surgery comes with risks, so it’s important that you understand them before you go under the knife and are realistic about what surgery can achieve.
