Cosmetic Surgery Now For Everyone

Today more men and women are discovering the benefits of cosmetic surgery. It is no longer only for the rich and famous, but available to patients of all walks of life who want to improve and enhance their appearance. Personal strengths and character enhancements often blossom during the recovery and healing phase. Feelings of self-esteem carry a message of physical attractiveness to others. To be truly beautiful, individuals must determine for themselves what makes them feel confident. When physical changes are needed in this endeavor, many surgical choices are available. Some commonly performed procedures are
Liposuction One of the most frequently performed of all cosmetic procedures. The procedure involves an internal sculpting, with great care taken to avoid defects. When the buttocks, limbs, or abdomen are re-contoured, skin incisions are made in natural folds or relaxed skin line tensions to camouflage the small scars. Post-operatively, the use of a compression garment in the area of re-contouring is required to assist in the favorable recovery of the skin and underlying soft tissue.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) The female abdomen is especially prone to stretch deformity caused by pregnancy, dramatic changes in weight, or abdominal scars and incisions. This procedure restores muscle tautness and strength and eliminates excess fat and skin. Recovery usually takes 3-6 weeks.
Breast Surgery Reduction surgery, augmentation, and mastopexy (breast lift), are all achievable in an outpatient surgery setting. Recovery for all procedures is 3-6 weeks. An examination and consultation will determine the procedure best suited for your individual needs.
Facial Rejuvenation A facelift, brow lift, blepharoplasty, or skin resurfacing can restore that rested, renewed appearance. Your surgeon will be able to advise you as to which procedure addresses your particular facial concerns.
In conclusion, when choosing a cosmetic plastic surgeon, look for dedication and proper training, look at prior successes, look to the relationship and make sure that your desire for excellence parallels that commitment from your surgeon. It is important that your surgeon listen and understand your expectations.
