Why do people seek the services of a plastic surgeon?

With incredible advancements in the field of cosmetic surgery, more and more people are seeking out the help of plastic surgeons to improve and rejuvenate their appearance.

With so many procedures available, from facelifts and abdominoplasties to less invasive treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox, there are many reasons why patients are willing to invest time and money in plastic surgery including:

1. Anti-Aging

Skin aging is a natural and inevitable process. As you get older, your skin tends to lose volume, develop wrinkles and become loose or saggy.

Fortunately, cosmetic procedures performed by certified plastic surgeons can be very effective in reversing any unwanted signs of aging, helping you look naturally younger for many more years.

Some of the best plastic surgeries to address aging concerns include:

2. Excess Fat Removal

For patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and are looking to get rid of any sagging or excess skin, there are a range of body-contouring surgeries available to help create a more toned and aesthetically pleasing physique.

These include:


Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery used by plastic surgeons to reshape specific areas of the body by removing stubborn, localized areas of fat.

Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not effective for weight loss and works best for patients who are within 25 pounds of their ideal weight.

If you are looking to remove specific areas of unwanted fat that don’t necessarily match the rest of your body, then liposuction may be the procedure for you.

This popular plastic surgery, also known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure that improves the overall appearance and contour of your abdomen.

This is done by removing any excess fat or skin while tightening your abdominal muscles, for a firmer, more toned appearance.

Breast Reduction

During a breast reduction, your plastic surgeon will remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size that is in proportion to your body.

Most women who seek this surgery are those whose breast size:

  • Causes them pain (back, shoulder, neck)
  • Limits their physical activity
  • Causes skin irritation
  • Reduces their quality of life
