This post lists the most sought-after plastic surgeries by females after the age of 40. Keep reading to get a brief on the popular plastic surgeries in Hyderabad for females aged above 40 offered by plastic surgeons at Eternelle Aesthetics.        

1. Mommy Makeovers

Women who have decided to not have a pregnancy in the future seek a mommy makeover after their last childbirth to get back their pre-pregnancy figure. Various plastic surgeries fall under the umbrella of mommy makeover procedures and the surgeon may choose all or one or more of them. The best plastic surgeon in Hyderabad at Eternelle Aesthetics may perform breast augmentation with implants, breast lift, breast reduction, liposuction for a well-contoured body, and/or circumferential tummy tuck for a flat abdomen profile during a single mommy makeover session or execute them over multiple surgical sessions.

2. Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

Facelift is undertaken by women to turn back the hands of time on their face if experiencing any age-related changes on their face. This plastic surgery can help address drooping cheeks, drooping jowls, and deep wrinkles from the sides of the nose to the mouth corners to create a youthful face. It won’t be effective for correcting sun-damaged skin, fine lines, uneven skin colour, or creases around the upper lip and nose.

During a facelift, the plastic surgeon in Hyderabad pulls back the skin flaps on either side of the face, alters the tissue beneath the skin, tightens the underlying tissues and muscles, re-drapes the facial skin over the newly repositioned facial contours, and finally removes extra skin. In some cases, fat may be removed, shifted, or sculpted on the face before the extra skin is removed and the wound is sutured or taped closed. The incision made for a facelift depends upon which part of the face is being treated- full face with or without neck or only lower face.

3. Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

A breast lift is an operation performed by a plastic surgeon to change the shape of the breast(s) and raise one or both breasts so that they are in symmetry with one another. Women with sagging breasts or nipples pointing downwards as a result of pregnancy, weight change, or gravity over time go for breast lift. The surgery can even be done to lift the areolae- the darker area surrounding the nipples, if they are stretched out of proportion to the breasts.

During a breast lift surgery might make an incision around the areolae, extending vertically down to the breast crease, and horizontally along the breast crease. Through the incision, the surgeon removes the extra skin and reshapes the breast tissues. Stitches may be used by the surgeon for reshaping the breast and reduction of the size of the areolae. The surgeon may even shift the nipples higher in position. Finally, the breast skin is brought together and the surgical incisions are closed using stitches, surgical tape, or skin adhesives.

4. Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

This is a surgery performed by a plastic surgeon to reduce extra sagging skin from the underside of the upper arms, remove surplus localised fat deposits in the upper arm area, and tighten and smoothen the underlying supportive tissue which defines the shape of the arm. It is commonly undertaken by women with the sagging appearance of their arms or arms appearing loose or full because of them growing older, experiencing weight fluctuations, or simply due to their heredity.   

The procedure of arm lift surgery involves making an incision on the back of the arm or inside of the arm, extending from the armpit to just above the elbow. Through the incision, the surgeon directly excises extra arm fat or treats it with liposuction and then reshapes and tightens the underlying tissues and muscles using internal sutures. The surgery is done as per the specific condition and needs of the patient. Lastly, the surgeon smoothens the skin over the new arm contour, and the incisions are closed with absorbable stitches.

5. Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)

This plastic surgery is performed to improve the tone and contours of the thighs. The surgery involves the removal of the extra skin and fat from the inner and/or outer thighs and then reshaping the thighs to contour the thighs. Many women aged above 40 go for thigh lift surgery if they have lost a considerable amount of their weight which has resulted in poor skin tone and elasticity in the thigh region.

A thigh lift can help address cellulite or dimpled, lumpy thigh skin, chafing or rashes on the inner thighs, drooping thigh skin, and bleeding or discoloration of the thigh skin upon rubbing against one another. During the surgery, the best plastic surgeon in Hyderabad cuts through the groyne region to remove extra thigh fat, reposition the underlying thigh tissues, tighten the nearby thigh muscles, and even trim the excess thigh skin. The surgeon makes an incision that may extend around the back of the thigh, down towards the knee, or around the back and hip, as per the type of thigh lift being performed. Sutures are placed deep in the thigh to secure the repositioned tissues and finally, the skin incisions are closed using skin adhesives, stitches, or clips.

6. Vaginoplasty

This plastic surgery is generally performed to repair or construct the vagina. It is usually required by women seeking repair of their childbirth defects or trauma of their vagina to improve their sexual life or women who have undergone radiation treatment or vaginal excision for cancer treatment and need vaginal reconstruction.

During the vaginoplasty procedure, the surgeon at Eternelle Aesthetics, at top plastic surgery clinic in Hyderabad usually removes the extra vaginal skin/tissues or abnormal structures, uses sutures to secure the loose vaginal tissues, and narrows the opening of the vaginal canal or tightens the vagina.
