Plastic Surgery: Is It Right For You?

The decision to have any form of surgery should be one that you come to after careful consideration. If you woke up this morning and thought "I think I'll get a nose job,", then this isn't the best decision for you. Take the time to read articles like this one to find out more about your options and complications of plastic surgery.

Cosmetic surgery isn't something you want to cut corners on, but there are ways to deal with the high rates. Some foreign countries do have reputable surgeons who charge considerably less than those in the United States. This may not be an option for you, but you should take it into consideration.

Talk to your surgeon about potential risks and how he or she manages those risks during surgery. Once you have asked questions, research the information the doctor has given you to make sure they are being completely honest with you.

If you are planning on having cosmetic surgery, be prepared when you meet with your surgeon. Have a list of any questions that you need answered. Ask anything, and everything that you can think of. Do not be worried about taking down some notes. It is an important decision. You might need the note later, when preparing for your surgery.

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure. A tube is placed in through a small cut and then suction fat out. The tube goes into the fat layer, and it works to dislodge the fat cells and vacuums them out. A surgeon may use a large syringe or a vacuum pump.

As you can see, there is a lot going on here. There are so many different procedures, techniques, doctors, costs, recoveries and complication possibilities. Take your time to do a lot of careful thinking about this matter. This article is a jumping point for your own internal dialogue and decision-making process.

Summer is a fun, favorite time of year for all of us. From beach vacations, pool parties, backyard barbecues, and simply having more hours of daylight to enjoy the outdoors are some of the wonderful ways we enjoy summer and make wonderful memories. Try as we might to load up on sunscreen, wear large brimmed hat and sunglasses, our skin can still experience cellular damage. UVA rays can cause damage to the skin membrane, UVB rays damage the DNA of the cells and IR-A damages the mitochondria. Unfortunately, the SPF (sun protection factor) number of a sunscreen indicates only the level of protection from the UVB rays and UVA rays are 50 times more prevalent than UVB rays. They penetrate deeply into the skin cell layers damaging collagen and cells. It is very likely that some of these dangerous rays took a negative toll on our skin over the course of the summer months. Thankfully, there are ways we can correct some of the damage and prevent the unwanted photo-aging. The use of topical cosmeceuticals can rejuvenate the skin, growth factors help support the skin’s natural ability to support itself and anti-oxidants are free radical scavengers and help fight the signs of aging. In-office chemical peels are a must for reversing the damage and photo aging process. I recommend that all of my clients have a single chemical peel or series of peels at this time of year to correct sun damage. Chemical peels come in several different strengths. A treatment plan can be customized for each person based on their skin type, concerns, level of damage and desired outcome. Sometimes results can be achieved with a single peel, other times a series of two to three peels are necessary to work on more stubborn or deeper issues. I would encourage everyone to start planning now for their chemical peels. Minimal downtime can be expected post procedure. The skin will start off pink the day of the peel and will be very tight until peeling starts, generally 48 to 72 hours after the procedure, and can last 2 to 5 days. I would recommend looking ahead at your schedule and setting up a time to accommodate this process since it’s not too early to plan your fall skin rejuvenation. If you are unsure what your skin needs, please call 865-218-6210 to set up a complementary consultation.

FAQ’S

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy’s secret is ultrasound energy. This treatment incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows Pur Skin Providers see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered where it will be most beneficial and safe. Learn more about Ultherapy

Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The ultrasound energy reaches all the way to the deepest levels of the skin; the same levels as those affected in surgical face lifting. This treatment jumpstarts a natural renewal process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. This new collagen lifts and tightens the many layers of the skin for a natural, long term, noticeable result.
