Cosmetic surgery allows you to improve areas of your body that directly impact your satisfaction and happiness. There are a number of effective procedures that can dramatically improve how you feel about certain parts of your body; however, perfection will never be attained. Why?

Not interested in going “under the knife”? There are now many nonsurgical treatment alternatives that we can perform to slow down the obvious signs of aging. In fact, modern times and technology have truly changed how surgeons deal with the aging face.

It’s one thing to make the decision that a tummy tuck is what you want, it’s another thing to understand what the procedure will entail and how to be prepared for it. The following is a good summary of what to expect from this procedure.
Like liposuction, a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty surgery, is one of the most commonly sought-after procedures at a plastic surgeon’s office. In its most basic form, it involves removing excess skin and stretch marks from the abdominal area, tightening the abdominal muscles, and perhaps, utilizing some liposuction to complement the results.

When it comes to making an instance impression, your eyebrows play a big role in catching someone’s attention. As we age, some may feel the impact of their brow area shift from dramatic to droopy or harsh.
As I’ve discussed in previous posts, plastic surgery cannot make an obese person skinny. It may remove problem areas of fat that you have trouble getting rid of with diet and exercise, or remove loose skin that occurs with aging, after losing weight, or after childbirth; but it’s unrealistic to think that plastic surgery can make someone who’s very overweight look thin.
