Type of Surgery
Cosmetic breast, face, and body surgeries strive to minimize the amount of visible scarring while maximizing the positive benefits. From breast implants to tummy tucks to nose jobs, cosmetic surgeons add to, remove, or adjust existing physical structures to achieve the look that the patient wants. Key factors to keep in mind include cost, physical feasibility, and longevity of results.
