Cosmetic Surgery Options -- The Basics
There are many treatment options to improve or change your face and body. When you talk to your surgeon, be open about what you want, but be willing to listen to their recommendations. They may recommend a different procedure to achieve a similar result.
Often a less invasive or more isolated procedure will do as well as a more involved surgery. And in some cases, your doctor may recommend one of a number of skin care products or non-surgical cosmetic procedures to treat your problem. Below is a summary of some of the newer options available.
Isolated Surgical Techniques
Cosmetic procedures to improve the body's appearance include liposuction, breast enlargement or reduction, and abdominoplasty ("tummy tuck").
