Millions of men and women choose plastic surgery every year. They’ve made the decision to change the way they look, fix something that’s bothering them and look as youthful and vital as possible. Plastic surgery is the fastest, easiest way to improve the way you look and feel about yourself.
Change Your Life with Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery doesn’t just change the way you look. It can change your whole outlook on life and the way you see yourself. You’ll feel more confident, more secure and ready to put your best self forward. If you’re considering plastic surgery, here are some signs that indicate you might be ready to take that next step in your life.
Reasons to Consider a Surgical Procedure
1. You’ve Tried the Non-Surgical Approaches
Non-surgical approaches are usually where people start when they’re getting cosmetic treatments.
For Your Face
Non-surgical treatments to stop aging on your face usually include:
- Dermal fillers such as Juvederm®
- Other injectables like BOTOX®
- Intensive facial treatments like chemical peels
- Medical-grade skin care
These treatments are excellent at keeping you younger-looking, especially when they’re used in combination. They can’t make the dramatic changes that plastic surgery can. You may be happy with fillers and other injectables for a while, but you may have decided that it’s time for a dramatic, long-lasting change.
Fillers won’t help if you have stretched-out, sagging skin on your face. They can add fullness to your cheeks and lips, but they can’t give your face the support that it needs to look younger.
A facelift is the only way to:
- Take multiple years off your face
- Add structure to a sagging face
- Produce results that last for multiple years
- Erase deep wrinkles
- Give your entire profile a lifted, youthful look
If your fillers and facials are starting to fail you, it’s most likely time to consider a facelift.
For Your Body
There are many non-surgical treatments that remove excess fat to tone and trim your body. Some of these treatments use heat energy while others use fat freezing technology.
These treatments work well, but they don’t produce the immediate, noticeable results that liposuction and plastic surgery do. Liposuction and plastic surgery do more than remove fat. They allow our surgeon to reshape and refine your body into a balanced, pleasing shape. Plastic surgery is the only way to add fullness to your bust, lift your breasts if they’re sagging or remove the loose, sagging skin left by weight loss.
Compared to non-surgical body shaping treatments, only liposuction and plastic surgery can:
- Truly reshape your body
- Change your body in one day
- Correct gynecomastia or “man boobs”
- Add fullness or volume to your buttocks or breasts
- Lift sagging breasts
- Remove excess skin left by weight loss
- Tighten a tummy stretched out after a C-section
Plastic surgery can give you stunning results that last. It’s the best way to make a real change to your body.
2. You Want Long-Lasting Results
When it comes to your face, even the best fillers and the best skin care treatments can’t give you permanent results. A facelift is not permanent and the results vary from patient to patient, but it can last for years.
If you get plastic surgery or liposuction on your body, you can expect long-lasting or permanent results, depending on the procedure. If you maintain your weight, you’ll maintain your gorgeous new shape. Breast augmentation surgery lasts for years as well.
3. You Want Dramatic Results in One Day
Many non-surgical treatments take a long time to work. If you’re getting non-surgical body shaping, you may need up to 10 treatments spread over several weeks before you start to see results.
If you’re getting facial treatments like chemical peels, you may need several treatments before you start to see real changes. Fillers provide one-day results, but they have other limitations.
Plastic surgery changes you in one day. In most cases, you can have your surgery done and then go home to recover on the same day.
4. You Want to Like the Way You Look
If you’re tired of looking in the mirror and not liking what you see, plastic surgery can change that. Making a positive change to your face, body or both will enhance your self-confidence.
Most people choose to have plastic surgery after years of living with a feature or a body that they don’t like. How much longer are you going to live with yours?
With plastic surgery, you can stop wondering what it would be like to look younger, shapelier and more attractive. You can finally live with the body and/or the face that you’ve always wanted.
5. You Have a Special Event Coming Up
If you want to look your best for an upcoming holiday, wedding, school reunion or other special occasion, you can make sure you look amazing for it by scheduling your plastic surgery a set amount of time before it. You’ll need time to recover from surgery, so keep that in mind when you make your plans. You’ll need extra time if you’re having more than one procedure done.
Once you heal, your face and body will look fantastic at your next big event. You can head out knowing that you look great. With non-surgical approaches, you have no way of knowing if you’ll achieve the results you want in time for your event.
6. You Can Combine Procedures to Enhance Your Results
Plastic surgery procedures like liposuction let you control and predict your results. They allow you to create just the look you want. In consultation with our surgeon, you can define the outcome you want from surgery. You can make your results even better by combining surgical cosmetic procedures. For example, you may wish to:
- Combine a breast lift with breast augmentation
- Get liposuction on your stomach or flanks while you’re removing your male breasts
- Combine a tummy tuck with a breast augmentation
- Get an eyelid lift and a brow lift in addition to a facelift
- Add a neck lift to your facelift
- Get a Brazilian butt lift, which combines liposuction with surgery
7. Plastic Surgery is a Proven, Popular Practice
Most people rate plastic surgery very highly. If you read review sites for various cosmetic procedures, you’ll see that the most popular cosmetic procedures get satisfaction ratings of over 90%. These popular surgeries include breast augmentation, liposuction, arm lifts, facelifts and more.
Most people who have plastic surgery are only sorry that they didn’t do it sooner. Plastic surgeons have continued to refine and develop their surgical skills. Cosmetic surgical procedures are performed with care for your safety.
8. You’re Ready for Surgery
Being ready for surgery means that you’ve made the decision. You’re mentally ready. You have realistic expectations for the outcome of surgery. It also means that you’re in good enough health for surgery. Our doctor will provide a complete medical assessment to ensure that you’re physically ready.
You’re probably read for surgery if you:
- Are at a stable weight
- Don’t smoke
- Are in overall good health
- Have had a consultation with a plastic surgeon
9. You Have Many Different Options
One of the great things about plastic surgery is that there are many different kinds. You can find a cosmetic surgical procedure to correct or enhance almost any part of your face or body. Many people find that once they get over their initial hesitation to start, they’re so thrilled with their results that they decide to continue improving their appearance.

10. You’ve Lost a Lot of Weight
If you’ve lost a lot of weight, you deserve a big congratulations. You’ve managed to overcome a difficult feat. Whether you lost your weight through surgery or through diet and exercise, you may be left with excess, sagging skin. Non-surgical techniques won’t tighten this skin to your liking. Only surgery can remove all that excess skin.
Even if you don’t have a lot of excess skin, surgery can enhance your results. Let your hard work pay off with a trim, toned body. You deserve it!
How to Prepare for Surgery
There are many good reasons to consider getting plastic surgery. You may have decided that it’s right for you. Your first step should be a consultation with a plastic surgeon. This is a time to discuss your goals for surgery and what you can expect. You should be open about your medical and surgical history. Take your time. Ask any questions you might have about the procedure. Address any concerns you might have during this time as well.
