Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance (though not necessarily the function) of a person’s teeth, gums and/or bite. Cosmetic dentistry may involve: the addition of a dental material to teeth or gums – examples: bonding, porcelain veneers llaminates), crowns (caps), gum grafts; the removal of tooth structure or gums – examples: enameloplasty, gingivectomy; neither adding nor removing dental materials, tooth structure, or gums – examples: teeth whitening (bleaching), gum depigmentation; and the straightening of teeth accompanied by improvement in appearance of face – Orthodontics.

Laser eye surgery is also not just performed for aesthetic or cosmetic reasons. They also work in correcting eye problems involving vision. Common vision problems arise from distortions on the surface of the cornea affecting the way light is refracted. To correct this, laser eye surgery is formed, usually in the form of LASIK, which stands for laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis. Another procedure is photorefractive keratectomy or PRK. These procedures involve lifting the cornea and using laser beams to re-shape the tissue underneath it. These procedures are quick and patients have reported only minor stinging during the procedure. After this, the patient will have to wear soft and thin contact lenses for protection. The recovery period is also shorter and the person can go back to his normal activities in a matter of days. • Conductive Keratoplasty

Some cosmetic procedures, such as Face peels and Botox injections, don’t involve surgery but this doesn’t mean they’re without risk. It’s important to use a reputable practitioner who is properly qualified. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures involve products or techniques that make the skin look smoother, or make marks on the skin look less obvious. There are also procedures to change the way teeth look, such as making them whiter or straighter. If you’re considering a procedure, find out what it involves, what the risks are and how much it costs. Ask about the qualifications and experience of the person who will be treating you, check out before and after pictures to decide if the practitioner can achieve the results you are looking for.

Losing your hair can be alarming, both for men AND women. Hair loss is primarily caused by a combination of aging, a change in hormones, and a family history of baldness. As a rule, the earlier hair loss begins, the more severe the baldness will become. Hair loss can also be caused by burns or trauma, in which case hair replacement surgery is considered a reconstructive treatment, and may be covered by health insurance. If you and your doctor have determined that hair transplants are the best option for you, you can feel comfortable knowing that board-certified plastic surgeons have been successfully performing this type of procedure for more than thirty years. Below are some procedures available if you experience hair loss.

• Hair Laser Comb
• Hair Supplements
• Hair Transplants
• Scalp Flap Surgery

Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity. Although diet, exercise, behavior therapy and anti-obesity drugs are first-line treatment, medical therapy for severe obesity has limited short-term success and very poor long-term success. Therefore weight loss surgery generally results in greater weight loss than conventional treatment, and leads to improvements in quality of life and obesity related diseases such as hypertension and diabetes. The combinations of approaches used are tailored to each patient. Below are various cosmetic procedures used for weight loss.
