How can Plastic Surgery improve my appearance?
Plastic or cosmetic surgery can improve an individual’s appearance by correcting, enhancing, or improving structural flaws that can detract from one’s appearance, such as an oversized nose, or sagging eyebrows, or thin, brittle lips. Plastic surgery can correct conditions resulting from birth defects, illness, injury, or prior surgery, as well as eliminating wrinkles, sagging skin, scars, and other flaws in the skin that may detract from your overall appearance.
How do I know if I am a good candidate for Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgery may be safe and suitable for almost any healthy adult, and some procedures are even safe enough to be performed regularly on children. Nonetheless, in order to determine if plastic surgery is suitable for you, as well as to discuss which procedures may be most appropriate to treat your specific condition, schedule a consultation with Dr. Keller at any of his convenient offices to let him recommend appropriate treatment options for you.
Is there any special preparation required before undergoing Plastic Surgery?
You should definitely plan ahead for your cosmetic surgery in order to ensure that you have ample time to rest and recover properly after the procedure. During your initial consultation, Dr. Keller will evaluate your medical history as well as the condition of your skin, noting any problems or concerns that may be hereditary. You may also have to suspend taking certain medications while you prepare to undergo surgery, since some medications may be contraindicated with plastic surgery. We also recommend that all our patients quit smoking while preparing for plastic surgery in order to optimize the results of the procedure.
Does it take a long time to recover from Plastic Surgery?
The length of the recovery period following any surgical procedure naturally varies with each individual, depending on such factors as the person’s general health and age, as well as the specific procedure or combination of procedures that is performed. Dr. Keller provides detailed post-operative care instructions for each individual patient. It is imperative that you follow these instructions closely to ensure an optimal recovery. Our friendly staff at Keller Plastic Surgery will always be on hand to offer support and answer any questions you may have during each phase of your recovery process.
Are Plastic Surgery results permanent?
Many plastic surgeries are considered permanent; however, it stands to reason that plastic surgery cannot prevent the continuation of the aging process and its possible effects on your appearance in the future. You may develop new aesthetic conditions or problems over time and decide to pursue follow-up treatments or additional treatments to address these concerns that develop as we age.
Does Plastic Surgery leave scars?
Since the goal of plastic surgery is to improve and rejuvenate your appearance, all procedures are performed in such a way that scars are discreetly camouflaged in natural skin folds or hidden behind the hairline. Some surgeries are performed through tiny incisions that leave practically no visible scarring, while others may leave very thin hairline scars that eventually fade away.
Residents of Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and the surrounding communities in California who want to rejuvenate their appearance should contact Keller Plastic Surgery, a state-of-the-art medical center offering excellence in plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures.
