Plastic Surgery Highland Beach FL
Cosmetic surgery should not be taken lightly so Dr. Ress always conducts a detailed discussion with the client before agreeing to do any procedure, regardless of how minute. If you are thinking about having a cosmetic procedure performed, it is critically important that you research that procedure as carefully as you can before committing to getting it performed. Remember that once the surgery is completed very few procedures can be undone. Making the decision to have certain cosmetic surgeries should never be done after something negative has happened in your life. Deciding to alter your look with breast augmentation, liposuction, or other cosmetic procedures after a breakup might not be the best time; you may eventually regret the decision. Talk with a doctor at [liv] Plastic Surgery; they serve the cities of Highland Beach FL. Do detailed research; be sure you are absolutely clear about what is involved, both before and after surgery
The team at [liv] Plastic Surgery want you to have a rational expectation about the surgery; if they can help you gain your aesthetic goals. It is important to remember that cosmetic procedures will improve your appearance, not perfect it. You should also want to understand the dangers, and decide if the advantaegs make those risks worthwhile. Recovery times should also be considered and be sure to change your lifestyle after surgery as needs be. And last but not least, no one considering cosmetic surgery should make their choice based on the lowest price; that must not be your top priority. The price range of most cosmetic surgery in Highland Beach FL really doesn’t differ too much; if you come across a surgeon that offers a procedure you want for way below market price, be very wary. If the cost of a cosmetic procedure will cause possible financial hardships, perhaps you should postpone it or consider a practice like [liv] Plastic Surgery in Manalapan FL that offers financing for the procedure over time.

Most common cosmetic procedures in South Florida
Among the many cosmetic surgery procedures performed in South Florida, liposuction is the most popular. The purpose of liposuction is to sculpt the body by eliminating stubborn pockets of fat that exercise and diet cannot remove alone. Liposuction can be performed just about anywhere necessary, but is most commonly performed on the stomach, buttocks, thighs, love handles, calves, arms, neck, and ankles. Recent technological advancements have made liposuction much safer and widely available to the public. Besides the traditional method, other less invasive methods have also been created. One example of this is Vaser liposuction.
Although liposuction can help reduce your dress size by two in just a couple hours, it cannot be thought of as a weight loss method. Liposuction is good for removing only the fat that does not respond to dieting and exercise. It cannot be used as a sole method of maintaining weight, as this type of weight will simply come right back.
There are many types of liposuction. We have already mentioned the traditional type, which is also referred to as standard liposuction, assisted lipoplasty, or SAL. Vaser liposuction uses ultrasonic energy to break down the fat, then the fat is removed. This is also called ultrasonic assisted lipoplasty, UAL, and Vaser LipoSelection. Vaser liposuction is especially beneficial in the case of gynecomastia (also known as male breast reduction) and areas that have already had traditional liposuction. This type procedure is good for patients with minimal skin elasticity. Power Assisited Lipoplasty is a type of liposuction that uses vibrations to break apart fat. As there are many different types of liposuction, consulting with an experienced, board certified physician like Dr. Andrew Ress is necessary to find out which is best for you. Every person is different, therefore every person requires unique treatment plans.
Another type of liposuction that has taken the media by storm recently is SmartLipo. This variation of liposuction yields basically the same results as Vaser, but operates in a different way. Instead of the ultrasonic waves Vaser uses to break apart fat, Smart Lipo uses a laser to liquefy fat. SmartLipo is not a bad choice for liposuction, but when seeking out SmartLipo, one must be sure to choose a board certified, trustworthy surgeon. Lasers can be very dangerous in the wrong hands.
Although liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure in South Florida, breast augmentation and tummy tuck follow closely behind. A breast augmentation, as you probably know, is the medical term for a boob job. During this procedure, various types of implants are inserted into the breasts to make them appear larger.
A tummy tuck is when excess fat is removed from the tummy area and the surrounding muscles, fascia, and skin are tightened, revealing the flat tummy so many of you desire.
