Latest statistics reveal that annual spending on cosmetic and plastic surgery ranges from $30 billion to $40 billion each year around the globe. Breast implants, liposuction and tummy tuck procedures continue to be among the most popular procedures for men and women, and are usually performed specifically to enhance the person’s appearance.
Women often undergo breast augmentation or a tummy tuck procedure after having a baby as part of a mommy makeover package. Men and women who have been struggling with losing a few stubborn inches turn to liposuction to trim down their figures.
Making the decision to have plastic surgery can be a difficult one, especially if the person has already had cosmetic procedures with bad results. Working with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon can reduce some of the risks and complications associated with these procedures and choosing a plastic surgeon based only on price can be a mistake.
We encourage patients to do their research when seeking out surgery and meet with a few experienced doctors in their area to find out if they are good candidates for a procedure. Taking a look at before and after photos can also help patients set realistic expectations about the outcome of their procedure.
