What is Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgery is a term that is used to describe a variety of cosmetic procedures. The distinction between this type of surgery and others is that it is often done for aesthetic purposes rather than to resolve a life-threatening issue. However, that does not mean that the procedures do not have positive physical benefits as well.
What is a Plastic Surgeon?
A plastic surgeon is a specially trained medical professional who has chosen to work in the cosmetic surgery field. Many of their practices will offer a variety of procedures including various surgeries, injectable treatments and more. Some prefer to work only with patients who wish to improve their appearance. Others assist cancer patients, accident victims and others who need reconstructive surgery. Many treat both types of patients at their practice.
Am I an Appropriate Candidate for Plastic Surgery?
The most important point of any cosmetic procedure is that the patient is having it done because it is what they want. If they truly want a procedure and understand the limitations and risks, they are usually a good candidate. Other considerations include not being pregnant, being in good health and having adequate assistance available to help with any recovery period.
