Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is now one of the mainstream medical specialties that evolved from a rich and famous demographic to people of all demographics and income levels in recent years.  The transformation that may result from non-invasive procedures, such as, facial injectables and fillers, to breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, face lift, nose surgery, liposuction and body lift procedures has been well received by millions throughout the world. Studies have not only demonstrated the safety and efficacy of core plastic surgery procedures, but also the life enhancing results from cosmetic treatments, including: an improved appearance which may also positively influence your personal, social and professional lifestyle.

In fact, today’s plastic surgery approach by board certified plastic surgeons involves less invasive and refined techniques, as well as, advanced technology to prevent more advanced signs of aging and to reduce the need for more invasive treatment later on. The natural look can be achieved with plastic surgery today by board certified plastic surgeons so there’s no need to worry about being overdone.  The pain factor is no longer an issue with faster acting, longer lasting anesthetics that allow patients to stay ahead of discomfort before it begins. In fact, there are many advantages in technology and technique that are designed to limit downtime and enhance recovery. Of course, there are always non-invasive procedures and minimally invasive procedures that may last from 4 months to five years, depending upon the plastic surgery procedures you choose. Yet, there are still the traditional plastic surgery procedures that may last 10 to 15 years or a lifetime in many cases. And patient financing has offered options that can often fit into your lifestyle and checkbook.

Selecting Your Plastic Surgeon

It is important to note that Plastic Surgeons do not all have the same credentials and this factor may play a role in the outcome of your plastic surgery procedure. There are over 100 self-designated medical boards in the field of plastic surgery, but only the American Board of Plastic Surgery is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.  The facility in which your plastic surgeon performs cosmetic treatments may also play a role in the outcome of your procedure. So, it is wise to ensure that your procedure will be performed in a fully accredited facility.  So, we want you to learn more about Selecting Your Plastic Surgeon.

Plastic Surgery Treatments

  • Facial Injectables and Facial Fillers, designed to significantly diminish wrinkles and fill in skin depressions for relief from crow’s feet, between the brow lines, forehead lines, smile lines, hollowed cheeks, and aged lips. Add to this medical grade skincare with microdermabrasion, chemical peels or laser treatments and your treatment plan for early to mid-stage aging may be complete.
  • Face lift and Neck Lift, including the traditional the deep plane lift and SMAS technique, nose surgery, the mini lift and neck lift procedures for women and men in their late 30’s and beyond.
  • Breast Surgery, including breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction and breast reconstruction to potentially enhance life in more ways than one for women in their twenties and beyond.
  • Body Contouring, such as liposuction and body lift procedures for the trimmed down toned appearance of your abdomen, hips, back, arms, and thighs, as well as, the tummy tuck to vastly improve a protruding  abdominal appearance for adult women and men.

Plastic Surgery Medical Necessity Treatment

Plastic surgery procedures are often cash pay procedures, meaning that insurance does not cover the costs of plastic surgery treatment.  However, there are instances in which medical insurance companies will pay for all or a portion of your plastic surgery treatment when the procedure is deemed a medical necessity. These cases often relate to reconstructive plastic surgery procedures, the body lift procedure and in some cases, liposuction if the procedure will improve mobility, such as, for an overweight individual with limited mobility due to excess weight on the knees.

For all core plastic surgery procedures, patient financing is a viable option for many. Patient finance companies typically offer no or low interest loans to finance your plastic surgery treatment. In some cases, the interest rates offered by patient finance companies are better than your credit cards. You can discuss patient financing options with your plastic surgeon during your consultation. In many cases, there is no charge for an initial consultation with a plastic surgeon.
