Cosmetic Surgery Q&A

What is cosmetic surgery?

Cosmetic surgery includes surgical procedures performed to enhance your appearance. While many surgical procedures address health issues, cosmetic surgery focuses on helping you look your best. 

Significant research supports the belief that looking your best helps you feel your best. Cosmetic surgery has the power to refine the shape of your body or enhance facial contouring. 

Long gone are the days when plastic surgery created overly tight, abnormally stretched outcomes. Thanks to advancements in medical technology and a multitude of new surgical procedures, today’s cosmetic surgeons create final results that are both beautiful and natural looking. 

Some available options include:

  • Face-lift
  • Neck lift
  • Liposuction
  • Brazilian butt lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Breast reduction
  • Tummy tuck

These are just a few of the procedures that can bring you one step closer to your highest aesthetic potential.

How do I find the right cosmetic surgery specialist?

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, you have options. Finding the right practitioner helps ensure you reach an outcome you love and actually enjoy the process. 

Communication is a critical element. When you meet with a cosmetic surgeon, pay attention to their communication style. Visits should never feel rushed, and your questions should always be answered with respect and in a thorough manner. 

A well-informed patient is an important component of a successful procedure. A great cosmetic surgeon takes the time to get to know you and your needs. 

Finally, there should never be any pressure to choose one approach over another or any attempt to upsell you on additional treatments. Your surgeon should act as a partner in helping you reach your goals. 

What can I do to ease recovery after cosmetic surgery?

Every procedure has distinct recovery needs. Giving your system the support it needs to recover is essential, and it’s one aspect of your surgery you have a great deal of control over. 

Begin by following all of the postsurgical instructions provided by your surgeon. If you’ve been given antibiotics, take your prescription exactly as advised. 

If you’re a smoker, finding a way to quit will go a long way toward easing your recovery process. Smoking robs your body of the circulation it needs to heal properly.
