New Year, New You!
As the New Year approaches, we inevitably start to formulate our New Year’s resolutions. Some are universal, right? Eat a more healthy diet, exercise more, be a better parent/partner/friend. Hey, weren’t these your resolutions last year? This year, they will definitely happen!
This year it is time to focus more on you! What can you do to make 2013 particularly satisfying? How about taking your body image up a notch? Genetics, the environment, and life experiences may take a toll on your face and your body. Are you bothered about a particular problem area? Maybe it is finally time to seek a plastic surgery consultation.
What is Plastic Surgery? Plastic Surgery derives from the Greek word “plastikos” which means “to mold. Plastic surgery is not based on “Plastic,” the material. Plastic Surgery comprises Reconstructive and Cosmetic surgery. Reconstructive surgery runs the spectrum, from Skin Cancer to Complex Wound Closure, to Trauma, to Burn, to Hand, to Craniofacial, to Breast. Is it time to attend to a deformity that you never addressed because it took a back burner to someone else’s needs, because it wasn’t life threatening? Reconstructive Surgery can make individuals whole again. Why delay such an important move?
Cosmetic procedures include minimally invasive and surgical procedures. Minimally invasive procedures include treatments to smooth wrinkles and improve skin health and appearance, typically performed in a short office visit. Cosmetic procedures span the body from head to toe: from Blepharoplasty and Facelift, to Breast Augmentation and Lifting, to Tummy Tucks, Liposuction, and Body Lifting procedures. Cosmetic surgery is NOT vanity surgery; it is surgery meant to enhance self-confidence. This can translate to improving relationships at work and at home.
