Behind the Scalpel: Plastic Surgery Secrets to Success By Joseph M. Brown, MD, FACS on July 18, 2019

It’s best to stay prepared. We are arming you with the top secrets to plastic surgery success. From what to look for in a surgeon to how to care for your post-surgery body, this is insider information about plastic surgery in Tampa.

Choose the Surgeon

When shopping for a plastic surgeon, always choose knowledge and skill over flashy, fashionable advertising.

Tampa Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery offers honest advice, personalized care, and natural results. Contact us today to learn more about plastic surgery in Tampa.

Sometimes, people think their plastic surgeon’s appearance is a sign of ‘good taste.’ After all, doesn’t pride in one’s appearance bode well for someone who promises to make you look great? Not so! You should look for a surgeon who is highly trained and experienced in the type of surgery you are having. A shiny website and a chiseled chin won’t tell you anything about how good of a job your surgeon will do. Find out what they are capable of by consulting plastic surgery reviews, reading up on their background, and asking about their experience.

Take Preventative Measures

Don’t wait until you think you look “old” to visit the cosmetic surgeon. Tampa Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery in Tampa offers non-surgical skin treatments. Kybella, Botox, and other fillers mean you never have to let go of your youth in the first place.

Kybella is the leading FDA-approved treatment for submental fullness (double-chin.) It dissolves fat cells in targeted areas. The results are permanent.

Botox is a toxin which weakens the muscles responsible for creating wrinkles on the face. The doctor uses Botox and other fillers to create a “liquid facelift.” This restores volume in the mid-face. Another common enhancement with injectables is lip augmentation.

Remember, different fillers create different outcomes. Make sure to discuss all your options with your surgeon during your consultation.

Go For a Natural Look

Many young women walk into the plastic surgeon’s office looking for a major change. They want D-cup breasts or a perfectly pointed nose. These are ideals thrust upon us by the media. They are generally not healthy or even realistically desirable goals. Ethnic minorities, women, and anyone who feels their looks don't conform suffer the consequences.

There is a healthy and positive approach to aesthetic and plastic surgery. A responsible surgeon does not accept patients who he feels have unrealistic goals. A healthy, natural, more youthful look is good to aim for. This could mean a blepharoplasty for droopy eyelids. It could mean a tummy tuck after pregnancy. Or natural-looking breast implants. In truth, there are many options for aesthetic and plastic surgery to choose from. There is no specific type of surgery that is inherently good or bad. What matters are your intentions. Make sure you are getting surgery for the right reasons. Make sure you are enhancing, not altering, your natural looks.

You Get What You Pay For

Avoid coupons, lucky specials, and the like as if your life depends on it. Aesthetic and plastic surgery are serious procedures. A bargain surgeon cannot offer the best quality, service, and safety. Don’t make the mistake of trying to save money on surgery. You may not see the true cost until it’s too late. Trust a qualified and experienced surgeon in your area.

Tampa Aesthetic is a leading provider of plastic surgery in Tampa. We put safety first, followed by results and relationships.

Look at Before and After Photos

Your surgeon’s before and after photos tell you a lot about their ability. Find a surgeon who has consistently created results like the ones you want. The photos are the best predictor of how your surgery will turn out. If they show mixed results -- with some good photos, some not so good -- look elsewhere. A surgeon should present their best work in their photos. If they can’t do that, they don’t deserve your trust.
