Beyond Aesthetics – Cosmetic Surgery that Repairs
Tuesday, March 17, 2015

There’s no question that one of the reasons cosmetic surgery grows in popularity each year is the potential it holds toblog enhance a person’s appearance. We see the evidence of that on television, in magazines and on the Internet all the time. But there is another reason people turn towards plastic surgery for help: to repair or restore appearance or bodily function.

Also known as reconstructive surgery, these procedures correct issues patients suffer from as a result of disease, congenital problems or injuries. Some examples of procedures that would fall under this category include repair of birth defects such as cleft lip or palate; burn care; laceration repair; and breast reconstruction after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. But, of course, there are many more.

If you are searching for a surgeon to handle your reconstructive or cosmetic surgery, bring these questions with you to the initial meeting:

·       What are the risks associated with this surgery?

·       Can I see before-and-after images of another person who has had this procedure done?

·       How likely am I to be happy with the results of this surgery?

·       What type of anesthesia will you use?

·       How long can I expect the recovery to take?

·       If my insurance doesn’t cover this procedure, how much will it cost?

If you have questions about a procedure, give us a call. We’re always happy to discuss your options for improved function and the repair and enhancement of appearance cosmetic and reconstructive surgery can offer. Set up an appointment today.
