Beauty and health: the different types of cosmetic plastic surgery

Cosmetic surgery is performed to change the normal structures of the body in order to improve the patient's appearance and self-esteem.
Choosing to have cosmetic plastic surgery is a personal choice. You need to educate yourself to determine if it is indeed the choice for you. That means doing your homework and finding a plastic surgeon that is willing to help educate you on the procedure you wish to have done. Nowadays there are many options available to you. You may decide that you simply want to improve on the features you already have or there may be something about your body that you just cannot stand. Depending on your personal situation you may be looking at a simple procedure that requires a quick office visit or you may decide on a procedure that will take longer to heal from.

  • Starting from the neck on up there are many choices. There are simple procedures such a laser hair removal, Botox injections and facial peels. More detailed and higher risk procedures are neck lifts, chin implants, lip implants, eyelifts, nose reconstruction, protruding ear surgery, and complete face-lifts. From the hips up to the neck you may be looking at liposuction which is a procedure to remove excess fat from the hips, arms and tummy. There are breast implants, which increase the size of your breasts. For some individuals breast reduction is the option to choose. It all depends on your current body structure.
  • From the feet on up to the hips there are also some more choices. Fairly recently there has been a procedure to lengthen the toes. Some individuals do this to make their feet look more appealing. You can also have buttock implants to make you rear end look a little fuller. Liposuction on the thighs and buttocks is also another choice. Plastic cosmetic surgery does not come without risk. In many cases you will be put to sleep for the procedure. It is your job and the job of the physician you choose to make you aware of any and all risk involved in the procedures you choose.
  • Before making a final decision on whether you wish to proceed and have any types of cosmetic surgery done there are some steps you will need to take. First of all you need to decide what type of procedure you want to have done. Then you need to ask yourself why you want to have the procedure done. You need to make sure you understand fully why you want to have cosmetic surgery. If it's for the wrong reasons such as depression over your current body image, then you may need to find another option such as counseling. The next step is to find a board-certified plastic surgeon. Do not feel that you have to go with the first one you meet. You need to ask for references. This should be something a good plastic surgeon will be happy to provide for you. You may also check to see if anyone you know personally has had any type of cosmetic surgery done and if they can recommend anyone. You also want to make sure to check and see if there have been any malpractice lawsuits filed against the surgeon you are meeting with.
  • Lastly, if you find you are feeling scared or doubting that you want to go through with the procedure, cancel your appointment. There is no need to rush in making a decision to have plastic surgery. You want to go into it with a clear mind. Remember cosmetic surgery is generally not covered by insurance as it is considered an elective procedure.

    Tell Me What You DO Want

    Tell Me What You DO WantFor many years, I've frequented a hot dog diner in Natick, MA called "Casey's Diner." I first discovered Casey's about six months after I moved into Natick (after a few unsuccessful attempts to find it). Casey's is the most non-descript, perfect place to get lunch. They serve a very limited menu -- specializing in hot dogs and hamburgers. On a given day, I'd estimate more than 50 percent of the crowd are
