There are two main categories of plastic surgery. The first is reconstructive surgery which involves repair or improvement of a part of the body. The second is cosmetic or aesthetic surgery that involves improving the appearance of a body part. Plastic surgeons can focus on both kinds of plastic surgery, but usually concentrate on one of them.
Today non-surgical cosmetic procedures outnumber surgical procedures almost 10 to 1. The growth of non-surgical procedures has been explosive and many offer results equivalent or better than surgery. Patients are attracted to the convenience, safety, and reduced pain and cost of these procedures. Botox Injections, fillers like Juvederm, non-invasive fat reduction like coolsculpting, and non-invasive skin tightening like Ultherapy are rapidly growing in popularity. Combining these procedures can offer even better results.
Cosmetic surgery procedures typically focus on the face and body. Facial procedures can include eyelid surgery like a blepharoplasty, nose reshaping like rhinoplasties and facelifts. Popular body procedures include liposuction, breast augmentation, breast lift, and tummy tuck. These procedures can also be combined for better results as in a mommy makeover. Increasing in popularity are fat transfer procedures like facial fat transfer, natural breast augmentation and the Brazilian Butt Lift.
Besides your choice of a Plastic Surgeon, choosing a plastic surgery center is almost as important. Look for national accreditation like AAAHC, which ensures minimum safety standards are met. Plastic surgeon ownership of the facility may offer better oversight and better pricing for patients. It is important that you feel as comfortable with the facility as you do with your surgeon.
