Cosmetic plastic surgery incorporates techniques designed for the improvement of the patient’s appearance through surgical and medical techniques and is specifically focused on preserving normal appearance, restoring it, or enriching it beyond the average level toward the patient’s aesthetic ideal.
Cosmetic surgery is a multi-disciplinary and comprehensive approach directed to all areas of the head, neck and body. Consider it if you’re unhappy with your current appearance and results from other cosmetic enhancements such as makeup, diet, exercise and supportive garments.
Cosmetic surgery may improve your appearance and help you feel better about yourself.
Every surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk and it is important that you understand these risks and the possible complications associated with them.
In addition, every procedure has limitations in terms of the outcomes that patients will achieve afterward. Although the majority of patients do not experience these complications, you should discuss each of them with your plastic surgeon to make sure you understand all possible consequences.
During your consultation, the Surgeons of the Memphis Plastic Surgery Group are happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have regarding any plastic surgery.
