    Most popular cosmetic surgery treatments

    Currently there is a wide variety of aesthetic treatments, focused on improving both the appearance and the self-esteem of the patient. Due to the excellent quality/price ratio of cosmetic surgery treatments in Spain, many international patients choose to be operated in our country.

    Among the cosmetic surgery treatments we perform at the Vithas Xanit International Hospital, the following are the most popular:

    Breast augmentation

    To this day, it is still one of the most popular and performed cosmetic surgeries in Spain, with thousands of patients each year. This procedure increases the size and volume of the breasts, with the aim of improving their appearance and morphology.

    Depending on the case and the needs of the patient, different types of implants are used. In some cases, moreover, it can be used even fat tissue from the patient itself to supplement the increase and achieve a more natural result.

    The duration of the surgery is usually less than 2 hours, and the length of hospitalization is short, usually no more than 24 hours.

    In addition to breast augmentation, at the Vithas Xanit International Hospital in Benalmádena we offer other procedures such as breast reduction, lifting or reconstruction. More information about breast augmentation and reduction surgeries.


    Another of the procedures most in demand, not only worldwide, but also at the Vithas Xanit International Hospital itself, is liposuction.

    By means of this procedure, the excess fat located in specific areas is eliminated by aspiration, thus improving the shape and contour of said areas, in which fat deposits accumulate and are not eliminated after diets or exercise. Some of the most frequently treated areas are the thighs, abdomen, stomach, arms, back, knees, hips and buttocks.

    Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)

    The drooping of the eyelids is one of the factors that most affects the aging of the face, in addition to being able to difficult the vision in the case of the upper eyelids.

    Blepharoplasty, or as it is commonly known, eyelid surgery, is therefore one of the most effective ways to rejuvenate the general appearance of the face, which is why it is in high demand, especially by people over 55 years.

    It is a short and simple surgery, with lasting and natural results. Here you will find more information about eyelid surgery.


    Through abdominoplasty, also known as “tummy tuck“, excess fat and skin is removed from the abdomen area while correcting sagging and stretch marks of the skin, getting a belly with a nice, flat and firm appearance.

    It is a highly popular surgery after pregnancy or other hormonal changes, especially in patients from 40 years old.

    In the following link you will find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about abdominoplasty.


    In recent years the popularity of this surgery has increased significantly, to become one of the most popular, due to the good results obtained through this procedure.

    Rhinoplasty not only improves the shape and/or size of the nose for aesthetic reasons, in some cases it is also used to improve the respiratory capacity of the nose, thus allowing to solve respiratory problems caused by the shape or narrowness of the nose.
