( - In 2012, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported that over 10 million men and women underwent cosmetic procedures. The number of cosmetic plastic surgeries increased by more than three percent between 2011 and 2012. Below find five popular procedures for plastic surgery.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure. Women with small breasts may feel self-conscious and want to enhance their appearance. Common complaints include breasts being uneven sizes, being too small for the frame, or loss of mass following weight loss or pregnancy. Breast augmentation surgery using saline or silicone gel implants can solve these issues. Newport Beach cosmetic surgery specialist Dr. Robert Kessler often combines breast augmentation with other procedures like breast lift for a more aesthetic result.


Liposuction is cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat from the abdomen, buttocks, cheeks, chin, hips, knees, neck, thighs, waist, and upper arms. Various methods may be used to break up the fatty deposits and then draw them out of the body using suction and a tool known as a cannula. This can be a very rewarding procedure for patients looking to improve stubborn areas of body fat that have proven resistant to diet exercise, such as the abdomen or love handles.


Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, corrects issues with excess fat, weakened abdominal muscles, and excess skin on the waist and abdomen. The procedure is designed for men and women who have tried diet and exercise but had no success. Expect long-lasting results if you maintain an exercise routine and watch what you eat. Dr. Kessler find the tummy tuck to be particularly popular among his Newport Beach plastic surgery patients who are looking to restore a firmer, flatter abdomen following pregnancy or weight loss.


Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. The procedure helps restore a youthful appearance by reducing sagging of the upper eyelids and puffy under-eye bags. It also opens the eye, improving vision issues caused by extreme sagging of the upper eyelids.


Rhinoplasty is popular with women, but it's even more popular with men, coming in at the second most popular cosmetic surgery for men. Better known as a nose job, rhinoplasty can improve aesthetic issues that range from a nose that is too wide to a tip that droops too much. It can also help to correct breathing issues, birth defects, and injury.
