Plastic Surgery Q & A

What is plastic surgery?

Plastic surgery is a subgroup of surgeries with a common goal of reconstructing or repairing physical features. While most surgeries seek to repair an injury or treat an illness, plastic surgery aims to correct physical deformities and features that you simply don’t like. 

Plastic surgeons place a high value on the aesthetics of their results. Even if your main goal with plastic surgery is improved functioning, your plastic surgeon makes it look as natural and aesthetically pleasing as possible.

Plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery are two terms that people often use interchangeably. Cosmetic surgeries only aim to alter the way a feature looks because it already functions properly. Both plastic and cosmetic surgery can aim to improve your body or facial symmetry and proportions.

Which types of plastic surgery are available?

At Associated Surgical Center, you have a wide range of choices in plastic and cosmetic surgery. You’ll sit down with an experienced surgeon during a consultation to identify your treatment goals and match them to the right surgery or surgeries. If you want to alter the way your face looks or correct an imperfection, your choices include:

  • Face-lift
  • Neck lift
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Nose reconstruction
  • Ear surgery

Commonly, patients want to alter the shape or size of their breasts. Available breast surgeries are:

  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast reduction
  • Male breast reduction

If you want to alter or reconstruct other parts of your body, your surgeon might encourage you to choose:

  • Liposuction (fat reduction)
  • Thigh lift
  • Buttock augmentation
  • Tummy tuck
  • Arm lift
  • Labiaplasty

Your surgeon might suggest getting multiple surgeries that complement each other for a result that looks more natural than the result of just one plastic surgery. Associated Surgical Center also provides nonsurgical cosmetic treatments like Restylane® injectable dermal fillers and Obagi® professional skin care products to help you get your desired look. 

What are the benefits of getting plastic surgery?

Getting plastic surgery might seem unnecessary if it won’t correct a glaring physical deformity or help your body function better in some way. However, getting plastic surgery for cosmetic purposes only has plenty of benefits. By getting plastic surgery, you can:

  • Boost your self-confidence
  • Find more social acceptance
  • Fit into your clothes better
  • Improve your long-term health (if you reduce your body fat)

In some circumstances, plastic surgery can even help relieve pain. For example, you might consider breast reduction surgery if having large breasts contributes to pain in your back. Similarly, a tummy tuck can get rid of excess skin prone to rashes and irritation. Your surgeon at Associated Surgical Center can help you explore the specific benefits of the plastic surgery you choose.
