Is rinoplasty a type of plastic surgery? And what's the difference between rinoplasty and septoplasty?

What is the most popular type of plastic surgery procedure that gives women the greatest self esteem boost?
Breast augmentation.: This has been the top cosmetic operation for all but one of the past several years (liposuction beat it out by a slim margin the year before last, but this past year breast implants again regained "first place.") but what really does the best is dealing with the area that concerns each individual the most, regardless of "popularity.". ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Head size: The head bones fuse and then grow as you age. But a surgery to reduce the head doesn't sound like a good idea. As you age your body may grow into your head size. Talk to your doctor about your feelings about your head size and you may benefit from talking about it. Maybe seeing a plastic surgeon to talk about what you don't like will help you accept your body. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Beware cheap surgery: I try to discourage my patients from price shopping for surgery. While i understand that cost is a factor, i believe it is much more important that you find a surgeon who you trust and are comfortable with after meeting with them. I also believe that you should make sure the surgeon is board certified in plastic surgery and not some other "cosmetic" board that does not meet the same standards. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
