As tempting as it might be to undergo cosmetic surgery to uncover the real 'you,' it's always a good idea to take baby steps when considering having any type of surgery. If you're looking for advice on this subject, then your best course of action is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sessa in Sarasota.
Cosmetic surgery can and should be beneficial for the patient, but it's not always in the best interests of a patient to have a particular type of surgery. This is when you need the advice, and perhaps intervention, of a fully-qualified plastic surgeon.
Although the cosmetic enhancements available today have made huge advances over those available pre-Millennium, it's still important that you realize plastic surgery isn't magic. There are limitations when it comes to reshaping and redefining certain parts of your body or removing stubborn fat.
Today we're going to take a look at the process of deciding to have cosmetic surgery. In Tampa, and elsewhere in the country, there are any of a number of excellent plastic surgeons to choose from, so how do you balance your own personal preferences with finding an excellent surgeon to create the "you" you've always wanted?
Before you take even a single step on the journey to having any form of effective surgery, you need to be very clear about why you're doing what you're doing. In some cases people have cosmetic surgery to please their spouse or partner, but that's a biased choice and not a personal one.
We would recommend that unless you're choosing to have cosmetic surgery for your own personal reasons then it might be wise to take some time to reconsider your options.
According to 2013 data gathered by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the median price of a facelift (Rhytidectomy) is $6,500. This price, however, is simply the cost of the procedure itself, and doesn't include other expenses such as anesthesia or other incidental medical expenses which might be incurred. So when you factor in all the other potential costs involved in having this procedure you may need to budget for closer to $10,000 in total.
The cost of having a facelift also varies from surgeon to surgeon, on how complex the surgery is, the amount of time involved in the procedure, and whether or not any remedial corrective surgery is required in the first place.
