Who wouldn’t want to improve their appearance?
A person’s face isn’t always perfect from every angle. Some people might be too embarrassed or self-conscious about looking in the mirror. Meanwhile, others find confidence in plastic surgery.
You’ve probably heard of run-of-the-mill cosmetic procedures such as facelifts. But are you aware that you can change many things about yourself with a scalpel? Some of them make sense, but some are just borderline weird.
Here are the strangest plastic surgeries you’ve never heard of but are 100% real and available today.
The vampire facelift has gained popularity in recent years, thanks to celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Rupert Everett.
But what exactly is a vampire facelift? And why do people undergo this surgery?
A vampire facelift involves taking blood from the patient and then re-injecting it into their face. The blood contains platelets, which are rich in growth factors. These growth factors help stimulate collagen production, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
It also helps improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. It also provides a temporary remedy for volume loss, pretty much like the Botox and fillers performed by Dr. Nidal Masri.
Some people may be put off by having their blood injected into their faces. But the vampire facelift is a highly safe procedure with minimal risks. It is also much less invasive than other cosmetic procedures such as facelifts.
Ear Lobe Repair
Based on Dr. Nick Masri’s experience with his patients, there are several reasons why people might get ear lobe repairs.
One reason is that they have stretched their earlobes out over time, and they want to return them to a more natural look. In that case, you can achieve it by getting an ear lobe repair. It cuts the excess skin and brings the lobe together with stitches.
Another reason is that people might have torn their earlobes. Ear lobe repair can help fix the hole and restore the lobe to its original shape.
Whatever the reason, this procedure helps people feel more confident about their appearance.
An umbilicoplasty is a procedure that changes your belly button’s appearance.
People undergo umbilicoplasty for a variety of reasons. Some people are unhappy with the way their belly button looks. Others have umbilicoplasty to correct a congenital disability or repair damage from an injury.
The procedure is relatively simple, and Dr. Nidal Masri can perform it within 30-60 minutes. Recovery time is usually quick as well. Also, most people can return to their normal activities within a week or two.
If you’re considering umbilicoplasty, consult a qualified surgeon to see if it’s right for you. You can even pair it with Dr. Masri’s tummy tuck.
For many people, dimples are simply a cosmetic quirk, something that makes them stand out in a crowd. But others see dimples as a sign of beauty and desirability. They believe that dimples make them look more approachable and trustworthy.
Dimpleplasty creates dimples by making small incisions in the cheeks. Following that, it includes stitching the skin to create a permanent indentation.
While dimpleplasty is not a new procedure, it has recently resurfaced due to millennials wanting dimpled grins. So, many consider it a way to turn back the clock and achieve a youthful look.
When you think of plastic surgery, chances are you don’t think of getting surgery on your hands. But believe it or not, palm surgery is a thing, and it’s becoming more and more popular.
So why would someone want to get surgery on their palms? Here are a few reasons:
- If you have severe arthritis, the bones in your palms can start to rub against each other, causing pain. Surgery can help to correct this by fusing the bones.
- People who have been in accidents or have injuries to their palms may need surgery to repair tendons.
- Some people undergo palm surgery for cosmetic reasons. For example, they want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or age spots.
Consult with a qualified surgeon like Dr. Nick Masri if you’re considering palm surgery. He can assess your case and give you the best advice on whether to proceed with surgery.
Donut Breast Lift
Have you ever wished you could pick up your breasts and move them closer together? Or even just slightly put them higher on your chest? If you have, you’re not alone.
Women dissatisfied with their breasts’ position get a donut breast lift. A donut breast lift is a type of surgery that involves making a circular incision around the areola. This technique repositions the breasts, making them appear higher and more youthful.
Lastly, a donut breast lift helps improve the appearance of asymmetrical breasts.
Buccal Fat Removal
Are you unhappy with the fullness of your face? Do you feel like you have chipmunk cheeks? If so, you might want to consider buccal fat removal.
This procedure involves removing fat from the cheeks, resulting in a sculpted appearance.
You can get a buccal fat removal if you feel self-conscious about the fullness of your face. Or, if you want to achieve a more defined look, this procedure may be perfect for you.
To achieve this, your surgeon makes tiny incisions inside your mouth. Through these incisions, they remove the buccal fat pads.
The entire surgery takes about an hour, and most people can return home the same day.
Eyebrows are often the key to a polished look when it comes to beauty. Well-shaped brows can help frame the face and accentuate the eyes. But sparse or over-plucked brows can leave you looking washed out and tired.
So, it’s no surprise that more and more people are undergoing eyebrow transplants. An eyebrow transplant takes hair follicles from another part of your body and transplants them into the brow area.
It results in fuller, healthier-looking brows that can take years off your appearance. Now, you can achieve the perfect brows to suit your unique facial features.
But before you go under the knife, make sure to do your research. Be informed about the potential risks and rewards associated with each surgery.
And don’t forget to consult a double board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Nick Masri, who can guide you through the decision-making process.
