Plastic surgery is a conventional means for treating medical, cosmetic, and mental health ailments. In 2014, 15.6 million patients underwent some form of cosmetic surgery, which was an expansion of 3 percent compared to 2013, says the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In 2015, that number was 15.9 million. Overall, the cosmetic surgery industry has seen an 115% increase in patients from 2000 to 2015.
With the social stigma lifted surrounding plastic surgery, a more diverse group of patients are seeking the services of plastic surgeons.
Cosmetic Surgery Options
Patients face some choices when seeking cosmetic surgery. Each patient is different and requires specialized treatment specially designed to meet their needs. Surgeons can perform facelifts using injections or invasive procedures. Fat cells can be removed with the thighs, abdomen, arms, neck, buttocks, and back using liposuction techniques, or various “lift” methods. Breast lifts and/or augmentations are utilized to alter breast shape, size, and volume.
With an abundance of options, patients have the opportunity to make the choices that feel right to them.
At Egozi Plastic Surgery Center, all patients are required to schedule a consultation appointment before becoming a patient. The meeting provides Dr. Egozi and his staff the opportunity to learn more about potential patients, design treatment plans unique to the patient’s needs, and to evaluate other options. Consultations are also designed to educate potential patients about their options, help them evaluate what they wish to accomplish, and familiarize their selves with Dr. Egozi, the staff, and the facilities.
Benefits of Cosmetic Surgery
The benefits of cosmetic surgery vary for each patient but are impactful. The mental health benefits stand out as they provide necessary confidence boosters, improve self-esteem, give patients positive self body-imagery, and progress patients’ sexual assurance.
There are also a plethora of health benefits. Burn victims, those who suffer from a deviated septum, which debilitates their ability to breathe, or patients who have bad posture, which causes back pain, often require plastic surgery.
