What type of plastic surgery is the riskiest?

What type of plastic surgery is the riskiest?

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 more

Is it ok to have plastic surgery when you have reached 60?

Is it ok to have plastic surgery when you have reached 60?

Absolutely: Age is not a contraindication to cosmetic surgery. The physical condition of the patient who is having the surgery is much more important. I have performed cosmetic surgery on patients in their 80's who are otherwise very healthy, and declined to perform it on people in their 40's with significant medical problems that increase risk to an unacceptable level for elective operations.

After plastic surgery, can I be exposed to sun?

After plastic surgery, can I be exposed to sun?

Best to avoid sun: Sun exposure following surgery can cause your scars to darken (sometimes permanently). Scars will take longer to return to normal skin color. This is also true if you had any type of laser resurfacing, chemical peel, , dermabrasion, or other facial procedures.

As a rule, you should always wear sunscreen when exposed to the sun, even if you did not have plastic surgery. Read more

Would you let a 15 year old get plastic surgery?

Reconstruction Only: It would not be appropriate for a 15 y/o to have cosmetic surgery, beyond a rhinoplasty. Even at 15, a child's face is not fully developed and may need to wait until later in their teen years. Reconstruction for a true deformity would be an appropriate reason to have plastic surgery at age 15, but cosmetic procedures would not fit that criteria. Read more
