St. Petersburg Fl., Cosmetic Surgeon Eric Egozi
In 2015, over 15 million patients sought plastic, cosmetic, or reconstructive procedures in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In 2000, that number was down to about 7.5 million.
The increase in patients seeking cosmetic procedures is due to a combination of things. Advances in medical equipment and procedures have played their part. Modern techniques and equipment have diversified the ways to achieve the same results, created safer methods, and provided patients with comfortable and fruitful experience. At the same time, social perceptions of plastic surgery have changed thanks to exposure through TV shows, celebrity exposure, and the general manner in which cosmetic surgery is publicly discussed.
Cosmetic Surgery Options
In the St. Petersburg Florida area Cosmetic surgery options have expanded to include modern techniques that ensure comfort, safety, and success. Implants can be inserted in the breasts, thighs, buttocks, neck, and even check. Augmentations are performed on the breasts, calfs, chin, and lip. Tummy tucks, lifts all over the body, and reductions are available as well.
Additionally, patients can now choose from a combination of surgeries to achieve one great outcome. The mommy makeover is a popular comprehensive surgical procedure that includes a tummy tuck, breast lift, augmentation, or reduction, buttock lift, thigh lift, and possibly more.
Besides invasive surgery, patients can choose from minimally or non-invasive procedures including facial, and laser treatment, or short and long-term injections such as Botox, Juvederm, SculpSure, Restylane, or Radiesse.
The benefits of cosmetic surgery are countless and unique to each patient. Many patients require reconstructive surgery due to health problems. Deviated septums, which causes breathing discomfort, is one common reason, as are burn care, tumor removal, breast reconstruction, laceration repair, scarring, and birth defects.
Often, cosmetic surgery benefits a patient both physically and mentally. Certain physical features caused by accidents or birth defects can be a significant source of low self-esteem and confidence. Cosmetic procedures help patients improve their self-imagery, increase self-esteem and confidence, and advance their quality of life.
