  1.How bad is the post-operative pain from plastic surgery?

The amount of pain varies according to the procedure and on a case-by-case basis. Most facial cosmetic operations do not cause much discomfort compared to liposuction, or operations that require elevation or tightening of muscles, such as an abdominoplasty or breast augmentation. Appropriate pain medications will be prescribed by your physician to minimize discomfort.

2. What safety precautions should I take when considering plastic surgery?

It is important to make sure that your surgeon is adequately trained and is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. The facility should conform to strict safety standards, and they should use skilled, licensed personnel to administer and monitor your anesthesia and recovery. Make sure to inform your surgeon of any drugs you are taking and your full medical history.

3.What is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure?

The most common cosmetic procedure is liposuction.

4.What procedures are most popular for men?

Rhinoplasty is the most popular, followed by eyelid surgery.

5.How much cosmetic surgery is performed on teenagers?

About 3% of all cosmetic surgery patients are 18 years old or younger. The top procedure for this age group is rhinoplasty.

6.For what age group is cosmetic surgery most popular?

The primary age group is 35-50 years of age. In past years, this group has accounted for over 40% of all cosmetic surgery.

7.Will my insurance pay for my cosmetic surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by insurance, unless it is somehow health related.

8.Will I have scars afterwards?

Yes. All Cosmetic surgery requires some kind of incision, and incisions leave scars. Sometimes scars can be very well hidden, such as facelift scars, which will be inside the hairline, and breast augmentation scars, which can be in the armpit, navel, or borderline of the areola. Scarring is not always easy to predict, since varies from person to person and is partly determined by heredity and racial background. Some people heal quickly with only small, faint scars, and others heal more slowly with large, raised, and even red scars. It can take a full year for a scar to fully subside and fade into its permanent appearance.
