When you are quoted a price for plastic surgery, it is always a good idea to clarify what it includes. Some surgeons provide the cost of the procedure alone while others provide an all-inclusive quote. Which one have you been given?

Equally important is verifying that the cost you are quoted is the actual cost and not just an estimate. No one wants a financial surprise after they have undergone surgery.

Facial fillers, also known as dermal fillers, offer a safe, quick, and effective way to address several cosmetic concerns. With injectable fillers, a softer and more youthful look can be produced – and all without incisions, surgical risks, or a lengthy recovery period. Most dermal fillers require little to no downtime at all, enabling you to get back to normal right after treatment, with results becoming fully apparent within 24-hours to two weeks.

Facial fillers can be used to address issues including:

Recovery from blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can take three to four weeks, though most people can resume working within one to two. Swelling and bruising are common after eyelid surgery, but with proper aftercare, should subside within a few weeks.

Keeping your head elevated, using cold compresses, and keeping incisions clean and dry can help speed recovery. So too can taking several short walks during the day.

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) permanently adjusts the size and shape of the nose, helping to bring it into complementary balance with surrounding facial features. Barring trauma, the changes made to your nose with rhinoplasty will last forever.

It should be noted that, as you age, changes in skin elasticity can make the nose look longer. It is also possible that age-related changes to surrounding structures, such as the cheeks, upper lip, and eyes, may slightly alter the appearance of your nose. The process of aging does not undo rhinoplasty, but the procedure will not make you...

Breast lift surgery corrects ptosis – sagging breast tissue that can produce a droopy and unappealing breast position. It can also be used to improve nipple placement, particularly in cases where ptosis has resulted in irregular nipple positioning.

As tissue is lifted and the breast mound is firmed, it is not uncommon for the size of the breasts to decrease slightly. For some women, this is of no concern. For others, even a slight size reduction can change upper body dynamics. For others...

UV rays are powerful. Without them, there is no life. Without protection from them, however, they can be damaging to the skin. This makes daily use of a full-spectrum sunscreen very important. Even in the winter. Even when you aren’t spending much time outdoors. It is always a good idea to wear sunscreen.

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Sunscreen reduces the risk of developing certain skin cancers by 40 to 50%. Even so, it is best to seek shade during peak sun hours (between 10 am and 4 pm) and to wear protective clothing like long sleeves and sunhats when going outside.

During tummy tuck surgery, excess skin is removed from the midsection of the body, separated abdominal muscles are reattached, and the waist is drawn in to help enhance the appearance of the belly. As a result, clothing options may be improved, range of motion may be more complete, and self-esteem may be enhanced, making it an incredibly beneficial procedure for women and men with loose and sagging skin, stretch marks, and other issues related to aging and weight fluctuations.

Liposuction is designed to eliminate fat deposits from the body and is particularly...
