Q: I am interested in getting a cosmetic procedure done. How do I decide which cosmetic procedure is best for me?

A: Cosmetic surgery is done to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve appearance and self-esteem. If you are healthy and have realistic expectations you may be an appropriate candidate. Many people are getting cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery done every day. In 2014, Americans spent more than $12 billion on over 10 million cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures (data from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery).

If you are seriously interested in having a cosmetic procedure done or plastic surgery, the best way for you to find out what procedures might benefit you is to schedule a consultation with a board certified and experienced plastic surgeon in your area.                                                                             After your consultation, research the surgeon and procedure or surgery you are considering – don’t rush into anything. Be certain the surgeon clearly understands your expectations. If you want larger breasts, be sure you and the surgeon agree on the size. Bring pictures if necessary. Plastic surgery is a personal choice and should be done for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit an ideal image. It goes without saying to appreciate your natural beauty, but I won’t tell if you don’t.
