Breast augmentation is the second most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the US today after liposuction. The procedure involves surgical placement of saline or silicone gel implants to increase the size and volume of a woman’s breasts. Both saline and silicone implants have received the FDA’s approval for women above the age of 18 and 21 years respectively. The procedure may be suited for a women in her 20’s if she has naturally occurring small-sized or asymmetrical breasts or seeks more voluptuous breasts for aesthetic reasons.
Individuals in their 20’s and, in some cases, even teens can receive rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of the nose. It is one of the most popular procedures among youth. If the nose is oversized or undermined in comparison to other facial features, or the nostrils are enlarged, nasal tip is flat, the nose bridge has a bump, or the nose shape is crooked or asymmetrical, the plastic surgeon can correct such anomalies with rhinoplasty.
Lips can become slightly elongated with age, but for women their 20’s the bigger concern usually is the fullness of the lips. Greater fullness in the lips can be achieved with dermal fat grafting technique. The procedure involves transfer of natural fat from the patient’s own body, which makes the procedure less complicated. Young women may also choose FDA approved facial cosmetic fillers such as Restylane, Perlane or Juvederm for lip augmentation.
Otoplasty or ear reshaping surgery is usually performed on younger patients, if they are bothered by large or flappy ears. If the shape of the ears is even or a curve is missing, these anomalies can also be corrected with otoplasty. If a patient has suffered a severe injury to the ear, it is possible to restore the earlobe to its natural shape with ear reconstruction surgery. Dr. Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and nearby areas for otoplasty.
Many young adults in their 20’s may want to accentuate their facial profile by having a dimple in the cheek. Dimple creation surgery is a simple procedure that can be performed in-office without any need for anesthesia. A numbness cream will be applied locally and the surgeon will make a small incision on the inside of the cheek. The incision will be sutured in a way to create a natural looking dimple.
Botox is one of the most popular FDA-approved anti-aging facial non-surgical procedures in the world. Aging signs can occur sometimes when a person is in their 20’s. Botox is a quick and efficient in-office injectable treatment to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
