Personalized Cosmetic Surgery

Injectables are effective in supplementing surgical procedures, as they are proven to reduce lines and wrinkles on the face without surgery. Botox and other dermal fillers continue to grow in popularity. The Aesthetic Surgery Education & Research Foundation (ASERF) reports that not only is the use of these products growing, but the willingness of people to discuss their treatments with others is also growing. Survey results found that the typical aesthetic injectable patient is a married, working mother between 41-55 years of age with a household income of under $100,000. In addition, women receiving aesthetic injectable treatments are health-conscious, with the great majority incorporating exercise and healthy eating habits into their lives.

Nearly seven out of 10 respondents believe that BOTOX® and other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are important parts of their aesthetic routine. These are also effective in achieving a younger look including other non-surgical alternatives such as skin tightening and laser hair removal. It is the proper mix of each of these procedures that guarantees a successful improvement in appearance, while removing the sign of aging.

The ideal candidate for plastic surgery are those who want to look their best by improving their natural beauty. While plastic surgery can improve physical traits and self-image, it will not change their lives. Selecting the best surgeon, determining the areas that you would like to improve, and asking questions should result in a better sense of self and an improvement in self-confidence and appearance.
