In breast implant surgery, an implant is inserted in order to change the size and shape of the breast. The surgery is commonly performed for women who wish to have larger, more shapely breasts, women with underdeveloped breasts, or women who have had breast tissue removed (a mastectomy). Breast implants can also be used to correct breast asymmetry, or as part of male-to-female gender reassignment.
Patients receiving breast implants should be at least 18 years of age, as the breasts are still developing prior to the late teens and early 20's. The most commonly used implants are filled with either silicone gel or saline solution. Both types of implant have a silicone exterior however, the substance inside differs. Saline implants contain salt water which is sterile and this type of implant is first inserted into the breast empty. Once they are fitted into place, the implant is then filled with the saline solution. Silicone implants are made up of silicone gel and these are already filled before the implant is inserted. Many women prefer silicon implants as they appear more natural when compared to the saline implants.
The incision site will be discussed and agreed upon with the surgeon prior to surgery. Silicone implants require a larger incision, compared to the incision that is necessary for saline implants, meaning the scar is larger. The implant is usually inserted behind the milk ducts, so that patients can still breastfeed with breast implants.

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a surgery which changes the shape of the nose. The procedure involves making the nose bigger or smaller, changing the shape and proportion in order to make it fit better with other facial features, or correcting a bump or any other imperfections.
Rhinoplasty is commonly performed for aesthetic reasons, but is also performed to help patients with a deviated septum or breathing problems to help them breathe better. The surgery may be performed by an otolaryngologist, (which is an ear, nose and throat specialist, commonly referred to as ENT specialist), a plastic surgeon, or a maxillofacial surgeon, who specializes in treating the jaw, face, and neck.
Number of days in hospital: 1 - 2 days. Sometimes patients can leave the hospital the same day.
Average length of stay abroad: 1 - 2 weeks.
