Cosmetic Surgery is an elective procedure - in other words ... a choice. Therefore, the decision has to be YOURS and YOURS ALONE!
Today - it is safer than ever before, more acceptable and no longer only geared toward the older generation or for the very affluent. Plastic surgery is certainly in vogue these days for women and men alike and - of all ages. Contrary to the past, the recuperation period is faster and easier, with some patients back to work in just a few days. However, you the patient, must be well informed and completely confident that you have made the right decision.
As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with 20 years' experience, I can safely say that, even though risks do exist, they are minimal. By regular participation in Physician's Continuing Education Programs, Conventions and Seminars, I am constantly being brought up-to-date with the latest techniques.
Although each individual has his/her own ideals, the goals and expectations you set for yourself should be realistic. Also, it is very important that you be in a positive frame of mind in order to make your experience a most gratifying one.
