The phrase ‘plastic surgery’ is commonly associated with the misconception that plastic is inserted into a patient, or that procedures will result in someone appearing plastic, or fake. In reality, the term ‘plastic’ refers to the plasticity of options when it comes to these transformative procedures. If a patient is thinking of changing the look of his or her breasts, body, face, or skin, there are a few things they should consider first.
There are many options at a patient’s disposal that can help them decide whether or not to get a procedure. Some reputable facilities, such as CG Cosmetic Surgery, offer free consultations to discuss desired procedures. During the consultation, surgeons will look for certain qualifications, such as overall good health and realistic expectations. Surgery is often ideal for those who are looking to feel younger, boost confidence, and increase self-esteem. Further, plastic surgery offers corrective procedures to relieve pain. For example, a rhinoplasty can solve breathing issues due to a deviated septum. Ultimately, the decision to get plastic surgery is personal; thus, patients should not follow through with a procedure if they are feeling forced.
As there are risks associated with any surgery, it is important to be aware of what they are, how frequently they occur, and what can be done if such problems arise. To decrease the risk of complications, it is important to choose a qualified surgeon. The surgeons at CG Cosmetic Surgery are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, which is the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Additionally, further credentials can usually be found on the website of a patient’s facility of choice. At CG Cosmetic Surgery, you can “meet the physicians”: Robert Hunsaker, Mel Ortega, Jonathan Fisher, and Jacob Freiman. The in-depth bios available on the clinic’s website provide information on their education, training, and experience.
