Cosmetic surgery is a type of plastic surgery that includes surgical and nonsurgical procedures which enhance and reshape structures of the body to improve appearance and confidence.
Over 17.5 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in the US in 2017, a 2% rise over the previous year.
Healthy individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations are appropriate candidates for cosmetic procedures.
People get cosmetic surgery for many reasons; some to look younger or more fit, others to change features they never liked. Keep in mind that plastic surgery is a personal choice and should be done for yourself, not to meet someone else’s expectations or to try to fit an ideal image. One of the keys is to set realistic expectations.
Cosmetic surgery can't solve personal problems or make you look like someone else, but it may give you more self confidence and enhance your sense of well-being.
You should note that because it is elective, cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance, however we can assist you in finding financing options to make more choices available to you.
