The Top 3 Most Popular Cosmetic Surgery Procedures For Women In Their 30s

Cosmetic surgery procedures are no longer a taboo these days, and we are here for it!

People should never have to feel embarrassed about having a procedure, and, in fact, most can be kept a secret with little trouble due to the natural results they deliver. It’s your business who you tell, and when.

When it comes to which surgeries women in their 30s are obtaining, the top three procedures are not the facial transformations we’re used to seeing on the celebs. In fact, all three are body transformations, and one is more about health and pain management than appearance.

Liposuction is a popular procedure for women in their thirties. Contrary to popular belief, the procedure is not obtained for weight loss reasons, it is designed to give patients a more toned physique. For example, women who lost a considerable amount of weight might need to obtain a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and persistent fats that will not shift despite their healthy diet and exercise. It can also be obtained by athletic women that cannot seem to shift fat in a certain area in spite of their healthy lifestyle.

In addition to body sculpting, liposuction can also be used as an anti-ageing treatment. For example, some young women can have an accumulation of fat in the neck, which makes the woman appear older than she really is. Removing that excess fat in the neck can rejuvenate the patient’s face considerably.

Breast Reduction

Some women encounter problems because of the size of their breasts; this can be anything from backpain to shoulder pain and headaches. In other cases, women can also encounter problems with the skin due to indentations caused by bra straps — a daily annoyance that can become frustrating and painful over time. A breast reduction can help reduce these physical symptoms.

There are various techniques that can be used to execute a breast reduction, this includes the liposuction procedure mentioned earlier. Breast reduction with liposuction is most suitable for women who have a considerable amount of excess fat in the breasts, especially compared to the amount of breast tissue. If there is more breast tissue, the cosmetic surgeon may have to excise the tissue to reduce the size of the breasts.

Fat Transfer

The fat transfer is another common procedure obtained by women that most people are less familiar with. Women in their 30s often obtain the fat transfer for body sculpting reasons, this may include increasing the size of the breasts or the buttocks. After reaching the age of 50, women could also choose this procedure to restore some of the volume lost due to the natural ageing process. Common areas where the fat transfer is used for anti-ageing purposes include the face and the hands.

Other Popular Procedures

Cosmetic surgeons now offer a range of skincare treatments too, adjusted according to your skin’s needs. As such, there are numerous non-surgical options to choose from that have become popular with women in their 30s. These non-surgical options can also be combined with other treatments such as liposuction.

A prime example of a non-surgical procedure popular with women in their 30s is the laser treatment. During this procedure, specific layers of skin are damaged to kick-start the production of collagen. Collagen creates a rejuvenating effect on the skin and, subsequently, patients can enjoy a rejuvenated and younger looking skin. Evidently, this procedure can be used to enhance anti-ageing treatments, but also as a standalone anti-ageing treatment.

All surgery has risks and Dr Lanzer recommends seeking a second medical opinion. By doing so, you ensure you can make a fully informed decision about your procedure. It also ensures you are fully informed about the potential risks accompanying such a procedure, so never be afraid to ask questions if you have them.
