IS COSMETIC SURGERY RIGHT FOR YOU
Despite the popularity of cosmetic surgery, Boca Raton Surgeons agree that the procedures are not appropriate for everyone, and you should always weigh the decision carefully. “You have to be sure you are treating the correct problem, because there is a ton of psychology involved,” says Eugene Becker, MD, facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. “If you are highly considering cosmetic surgery, think about what your motivations are. It’s never appropriate to have surgery to please another person. Nor is it ever wise to believe that surgery will lead you to dramatic life changes, such as becoming a celebrity or successful resolution of relationship problems. Realistic expectations, about both the physical and emotional results, are very crucial.”
WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT
The most important thing to remember is that results will vary from person to person and depend on many factors, such as your age and overall health, your body’s ability to heal, and your follow-up care. Recovery times will also vary, depending on the procedure and the individual themselves. Again, realistic expectations are crucial.
Frequently Asked Questions
|Is there a difference between cosmetic and plastic surgery?
Yes. Cosmetic surgery involves using precise medical training and skill to enhance one’s appearance through surgical techniques. While common cosmetic surgery procedures include rhinoplasty, breast augmentation and liposuction, it can include any part of the body. Also, it is an elective surgery, which means it is not a medical necessity.
Plastic surgery, on the other hand, is not elective. It is a procedure where trained medical professionals perform reconstructive surgery. The reasons for such surgery vary, but can include reconstruction of defects and disfigurement as a result of genetic disorders, burns, disease, etc.
How is the cost of cosmetic surgery in Boca Raton?
Even though it is an elective surgery, due to its growing popularity, many cosmetic surgery procedures are reasonable in price. In fact, cosmetic surgery may not cost as much as you would think. To be sure, speak with a doctor about pricing during your initial consultation visit. In many cases, during the consultation visit your doctor will present pricing to you based on the procedures you elect to receive. In many cases, surgical centers employ financial specialists to help patients outline the best ways to pay for surgery. The cosmetic surgery team of Boca Raton are always more than willing to provide you with a detailed estimate of costs and discuss payment options confidentially as well.
Will insurance cover my cosmetic surgery procedure?
Because cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure, your insurance company generally will not cover costs associated with it (i.e. breast augmentation and rhinoplasty). Therefore, it will be your responsibility to pay for all costs related to any cosmetic surgery procedure you decide to have, which will usually include doctor, hospital stay and anesthesia fees. Check with a board certified Boca Raton cosmetic surgery team to determine the time frame for payment before any procedure can be scheduled.
Is my Boca Raton cosmetic surgery team board certified?
Yes. Each surgeon on the Boca Raton team has been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. Even though you will be choosing a cosmetic surgeon, all cosmetic surgeons are first trained in the area of general surgery. Once one with general surgery, they move on to master plastic and reconstructive surgery. There are a few organizations and other “boards” that do not require the same level of intense training that the American Board of Plastic Surgery does. To ensure your surgeon is certified, be sure to ask during your initial phone call or consultation visit.
