Choosing the Right Plastic Surgeon

Plastic surgery is a viable option for those who struggle with their looks and who want to build better confidence in their appearance. Plastic surgery has both risks and benefits so its wise to choose the right plastic surgeon before getting the plastic surgery. You want to inquire if the plastic surgeon is licensed and board certified in the state because you run the risk of having a blotched surgery if the surgeon has no training or very little experience. Ideally you would want to choose a surgeon. More specifically, you need to find out if the plastic surgeon has experience in the kind of surgery you want.

Another thing you should do is find out if your personality will be a good match with a potential plastic surgeon. Do you feel comfortable with the surgeon as you’re discussing the procedure you want? Does he appear understanding of the concerns you have about the risks of getting the procedure? Does the surgeon answer all of your questions honestly and with enthusiasm? You need to work with a surgeon you can trust.

Cost is another factor in choosing a plastic surgeon so you need to ask in advance how much your procedure will cost. It’s also a good idea to check with your insurance provider to see how much of the plastic surgery they’ll cover so you’ll know how much you’ll have to pay out of pocket. Talk to the plastic surgeon and ask if he offers a payment plan to his patients. Ask him which costs are included in the overall price of the procedure.

Ask the plastic surgeon for before-and-after photos of patients he worked with over the past few weeks because it gives you an idea of how well he performs certain procedures. If you want breast implants, have him show you photos of breast implant surgeries that he has done over the past few weeks.

In conclusion, it’s important that you choose the best plastic surgeon for your needs. Research at least five to ten surgeons and then narrow down your list to two or three that you might choose from. Get recommendations from loved ones who had plastic surgery and ask them if they were satisfied with the outcome of the procedure. Read reviews of plastic surgeons on legitimate medical websites and if there are too many negative reviews, look for another surgeon. Finally, take all the time you need during the search.


Advantages of Plastic Surgery

Plastic Surgery is the process of reconstruction of parts of the body especially by transfer of tissue, commonly done due to injury or for cosmetic purposes. Many would say that your beauty is inside you, but would it hurt if the beauty would be both inside and on the outside? I do not think so. Given the importance of beauty in our modern society, it is understandable why people would opt to go for plastic surgery. Fortunately enough, the advancement of science and technology has given us the opportunity to improve our outward appearances. The most common plastic surgery procedures performed are;

1. Breast Augmentation, which involves increasing or reducing breast size depending on the preference of the involved person.

2. Facelift (rhytidectomy) which is a surgical procedure used to give a more youthful appearance.

3. Liposuction (lipoplasty). This is a procedure involving the removal of fat from different parts of the body like thighs, buttocks and neck

4. Abdominoplasty or more commonly referred to as tummy tuck, which is a cosmetic surgery used to make the abdomen thinner and firm. It involves removal of excess fats in the abdominal region.

It is evident that there are several advantages of plastic surgery. Firstly, it improves physical appearances. This is the most obvious advantage. A procedure like liposuction reduces the weight of a person significantly over a short period of time also; procedures like breast augmentation and facelift greatly enhance the most important features of someone’s body and hence making them more beautiful. In addition, plastic surgery reduces the risk of a heart condition. This is in direct relation to liposuction where significant amounts of fat are removed from the body.

As a result, blood pressure and cholesterol levels are reduced. Removal of fat also means the pressure on joints is reduced which in turn improves both health and appearance. Furthermore, plastic surgery helps improve breathing. This applies to nose surgery or in more scientific terms, rhinoplasty. If a person is suffering from a deviated septum (flesh that separates the left and right airways in the nose), the problem can be fixed through surgery leading to improved breathing.

After this procedure, you won’t complain again about your snoring partner, believe me. Plastic surgery also ensures improved self-esteem. The patient’s confidence is boosted and thus they do things they would not have done before. After a surgery, a person can now participate in activities they could not have participated before. This is due to their new enhanced looks. Now wearing swimsuits and bikinis seems a great idea all of a sudden.
