Top Cosmetic Surgeries in Albania: What You Need to Know

Reconstructive and cosmetic procedures that aim to improve, repair, or alter appearances are all included in plastic surgery. Reconstructive surgery corrects body components damaged by trauma or birth abnormalities; examples include reconstructing the breast following cancer surgery or mending a cleft lip. Cosmetic surgery, undertaken for cosmetic purposes, includes treatments like liposuction to remove fat, breast augmentation to increase breast size, and other procedures to enhance look. These types of procedures have gained a lot of popularity these last few years, especially in Albania. 

Everything You Need To Know About Plastic Surgeries

The main purpose of plastic surgery is to repair, reconstruct, and the alteration of certain areas of the human body either for functional or an aesthetic reason. Plastic surgery is still considered a branch of medicine so it is not as simple as it sounds. There are two types of plastic surgeries and they are divided into two main categories, which are:

Reconstructive surgery

The main purpose of reconstructive surgery is to restore the function and the appearance of different body parts. Usually, this type of surgery is used to treat areas of the body including those affected by injury, disease, born disabilities, and even birth defects. Some of the main reconstructive surgery examples include cleft lip, palate repair, the reconstruction of the breasts after removing it because of cancer, and even scar revision. These kinds of surgeries help a lot of people gain their self-confidence and fix some issues that can impact their lives greatly. 

Cosmetic (or aesthetic) surgery

On the other hand, cosmetic surgery is only used to improve and alter parts of the body if people want to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing look. This type of surgery is not necessary but it will be the perfect choice if you want to alter some specific body parts that you don’t like. Some of the most commonly requested cosmetic surgeries include rhinoplasty, liposuction, breast augmentation or lift, facelifts, etc. 


Liposuction is a kind of cosmetic surgery that “sucks” away fat from the body. It is also referred to as lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy, or lipo. It is frequently used for the back, calves, upper and back of the arms, neck, chin, thighs, buttocks, and stomach. Typically, liposuction patients are stable in their weight but would prefer to get rid of unwanted fat deposits in particular areas of their bodies.

Overall, liposuction is not a method for losing weight. It is not an obesity treatment. The technique does not eliminate cellulite, dimples, or stretch marks on any areas of the body. The purpose is only aesthetic. It is the right procedure for people who want to improve and modify their body shape.

The permanent removal of fat cells by liposuction changes the body’s structure. That being said, there is a chance that the patient’s remaining fat cells may expand if they do not adopt a healthy lifestyle following the procedure. There is a limit to how much fat may be safely eliminated in each patient and the doctor will decide that.

Infection, numbness, and scarring are among the possible side effects. also, Skin dents or lumps may appear if excessive fat is removed. The quantity of fat that needs to be removed will have a huge impact on the surgical risks and that is why it important for you to consult with a professional surgeon.


More often than not, liposuction is performed for aesthetic purposes; it has no actual health advantages. Adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet, frequent exercise, and a regular sleep pattern will certainly help most individuals achieve the same or even better outcomes.

Typically, liposuction is only suggested when lifestyle modifications have failed to provide the expected outcomes. It is mostly used to treat fat regions that don’t respond to diet or exercise. Each fat cell in an individual grows in volume and size as they acquire weight. Liposuction decreases the quantity of fat cells in certain regions. 

Before choosing to move further, people should weigh the benefits and drawbacks of liposuction with their doctor. Liposuction should only be performed after you have given it some serious thought. Often, liposuction treatments are performed on the following body parts:

  • The stomach 
  • The back
  • The lower back.
  • Buttocks. 
  • The inner knee area
  • Hüften
  • Love handles(flanks).
  • The area under the neck or chin.
  • The upper arm area. 
  • Outer thighs.
  • Inner thighs.

People with good skin tones and elasticity—where the skin can naturally conform to new shapes—are the greatest candidates for liposuction. The skin in the places where the treatment will be performed may seem slack in those with less elastic skin. 

Also, it is important that the individual must be in excellent health and older than eighteen. Liposuction should not be performed on those who have circulatory or blood flow issues, such as diabetes, coronary artery disease, or compromised immune systems. 


Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, is a type of breast enlargement procedure. It entails putting breast implants beneath the muscles or tissue of the breast.

Breast augmentation helps some people feel more confident in their own body. Some people need it to reconstruct their breasts due to different medical issues while others might just want to make them bigger. See a plastic surgeon if breast augmentation is something you’re thinking about. Make sure you are aware of all the potential risks, problems, and aftercare associated with surgery. 


You could benefit from breast augmentation if:

  • If one of your breasts seems smaller than the other and this affects how you dress or the kind of bra that is required to cope with the asymmetry, breast augmentation will improve your look.
  • Experience a major drop in your breast size after pregnancy. 
  • Boost your sense of confidence

To help you be realistic about what a breast augmentation may do for you, talk about your objectives with your cosmetic surgeon.


Removing extra skin from the eyelids is a procedure known as blepharoplasty. As we age, the muscles that support our eyelids weaken and they stretch. This can lead to an accumulation of fat and extra skin above and below your eyelids. This might result in drooping brows, droopy upper lids, and bags beneath the eyes.

In addition to aging, significantly drooping skin around the eyes can impair peripheral vision, or side vision, particularly in the outer and higher regions of the visual field. These eyesight issues can be lessened or eliminated by blepharoplasty. Additionally, the procedure may result in younger, more awake eyes and automatically a more youthful look. 


A blepharoplasty may be necessary if you have: 

  • Drooping or loose upper eyelids
  • excess upper lid skin that partially blocks peripheral vision
  • Overexposure of the lower eyelid skin
  • Under-eye bags


Tummy tuck also known as abdominoplasty aims to flatten and smooth your stomach area. During the surgery, your surgeon will remove excess skin and will aim to tighten your abdominal wall. To make the results even better your surgeon might adhesive you to combine abdominoplasty with liposuction. Even though this is not a weight loss procedure, it can help you achieve the body you want faster. 


Even though you may be working hard to achieve the body you want with regular exercise and diet, sometimes it is not enough. Your stomach is very persistent when it comes to normal alterations so, abdominoplasty will be the right way to go. This procedure will offer great results if you have experienced:

  • You have just undergone pregnancy.
  • You have been through a previous surgery.
  • The natural aging process.
  • Significant loss of weight. 

Reduction Mammaplasty

Reduction mammaplasty, another name for breast reduction surgery, involves removing skin, fat, and breast tissue. Breast reduction surgery can reduce discomfort and enhance the look of those with big breasts. Moreover, having breast reduction surgery may enhance one’s capacity for physical activity and one’s sense of self.

Speak with a certified plastic surgeon if you are considering breast reduction surgery. It’s critical to understand the potential dangers and difficulties associated with breast reduction surgery. Understanding what the procedure can and cannot achieve is also very important.


Breast reduction procedures will be ideal for those women who have experienced problems like:

  • Pain is located on the shoulder, neck, and back.
  • Grooves on the shoulder from bra straps.
  • Skin irritation or rash underneath the breasts.
  • Nerve pain.
  • Refraining from being part of certain activities.
  • Not finding bras or fitting clothes. 
  • Low self-esteem that comes from the look of your chest.

Breast reduction surgery will not be advised to you if you:

  • You are above your ideal weight.
  • You smoke regularly.
  • You don’t want to have any scars on your breast. 

Breast reduction surgery does not have an age limit and sometimes can be even done in the late teenage years. However, it is recommended to wait a while until the breasts have fully developed. Some reasons why doctors will recommend you plan the breast reduction procedure later on will include:

  • If you are planning to have children, it is better to have the surgery after because it might make it difficult after the procedure is done. Even though you might still have the ability to breastfeed we recommend you to wait after the baby. 
  • If you are planning to lose weight, wait until you have reached your desired goals than have the surgery because losing a significant amount of weight might make changes to your breast size.


The procedure known as rhinoplasty aims to modify the nose’s shape. Rhinoplasty may be performed to enhance breathing, alter the nose’s appearance, or do both. The top half of the nose is made of bone and cartilage makes up the lowest section. Skin, cartilage, or bone can all be altered during a rhinoplasty. Discuss with your surgeon the potential benefits and suitability of rhinoplasty surgery.

When planning the operation, your other facial characteristics, the skin around your nose, and your desired changes are taken into consideration. The surgeon will create a customized strategy for you to decide if rhinoplasty is an appropriate choice for you.


Rhinoplasty aims to reshape the size of your nose and some of the issues it can fix include:

  • Make the nose look thinner if your natural nose is bulbous, droopy, hooked, or upturned.
  • If you have a deviated septum, rhinoplasty will be the right procedure to fix it. 
  • It can be fixed too wide, too large, too small, or turned upward noses. 
  • Eliminate noticeable dips or bumps located on the bridge of your nose. 
  • If you have blocked nasal passages, rhinoplasty will open them so you can breathe freely.


A face-lift is a surgical cosmetic operation used to rejuvenate the look of your face. The process can lessen skin drooping and it can also aid in the smoothing of skin creases around the jawline and cheeks. Another name for a facelift is a rhytidectomy.

During the procedure, the surgeon will push back a skin flap on each side of the face. Excess skin is removed, and the tissues underneath the skin are changed. The face seems more young as a result.

A facelift procedure often involves a neck lift. this procedure aims to lower neck fat and skin sagging. Fine lines and wrinkles caused by sun exposure cannot be corrected by a facelift but other cosmetic treatments can improve the skin’s appearance or quality. 


As we age the look and the shape of our face start to change. The skin will lose its ability to snap back and it will become looser. In some other areas of the face, the fat deposits might increase and in some others, they can decrease. Some alterations that a facelift can do to your face include.

  • The cheeks’ drooping appearance.
  • Excess skin around the lower jaw.
  • Skin folds that extend deeply from the corners of the mouth to the nose’s sides.
  • Excess fat and sagging skin in the neck (if a neck lift is part of the operation).


A breast lift is a surgical operation performed by a plastic surgeon to alter the contour of the breast. During a breast lift, the surgeon removes extra skin and reshapes breast tissue to elevate the breasts. Another name for a breast lift is a mastopexy.

If you have a downward-pointing nipple or sagging breasts, a breast lift will be the right procedure for you. Moreover, this surgery may improve your confidence and sense of self. Your breast size will remain the same after a breast lift. On the other hand, breast reduction or augmentation can go perfectly along with breast lift. 


Because breasts change with age, as time passes they will begin to lose their firmness. This means that because they lose their elasticity they will not snap back in their place after they have been stretched. This issue can happen for a number of reasons but the most common ones are:

  • Pregnancy is one of the main reasons for breast dropping and this happens because the ligaments, or bands of tissue, that support the breasts may expand during this period. This occurs when the breasts become bigger and heavier. After pregnancy, the stretching may result in sagging breasts. Whether or not you nurse your child, this might still happen to you. 
  • Significant changes in weight. Stretching of the breast skin may result from weight changes. Additionally, it may result in less elastic breast skin.
  • Gravity is another factor in dropping breasts. Breast ligaments sag and stretch over time due to gravity and this is very common.
