Common Procedures Performed By A Cosmetic Surgeon

Cosmetic SurgeonCosmetic surgery includes nonsurgical and surgical procedures that are used to alter normal structures of the body to boost self-esteem and enhance appearance.  Healthy individuals who have realistic expectations and a positive outlook are ideal candidates for cosmetic surgery.  A cosmetic procedure is a personal choice; therefore, the decision should be made by the individual and should not be done to fulfill the desire of another person or in an attempt to fit an ideal image.  Since cosmetic surgery is elective, health insurance typically does not cover it.


Often referred to as body sculpting, lipoplasty is a method of removing stubborn pockets of fat such as “love handles” and “saddle bags.”  The cosmetic surgeon simply makes a small incision and vacuums the fat out of the problem area.  Bruising, swelling and some numbness will be experienced.  The patient may be well enough to resume work a few days post operation, based on the amount of fat removed. Costs vary but they start around $2000.

Breast Implants

This procedure involves the implantation of saline-filled bags between the chest muscles and the chest wall or between the chest muscles and the breast tissue.  Individuals who undergo this procedure should be able to move around a day or two following the surgery.  However, they will probably not be able to take a bath for 3 to 7 days.  After about a week, individuals may be able to resume working but vigorous exercise should be avoided for 2 to 3 weeks.  The cost is approximately $3000 but it varies according to location and cosmetic surgeon.

Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum toxin or Botox injections are administered to smooth wrinkles around the eyes and frown lines.  The procedure paralyzes muscles in the forehead; therefore, there will be reduced movement of these muscles.  No major recovery is involved.  The patient may experience some amount of numbness, swelling and bruising but the majority of individuals simply gets their injections and goes on with their lives. The results are temporary and injections are required every 3 to 4 months.  Botox injections typically range between 300 and 400 dollars per treatment; however, they could cost more in certain locations.


More popularly referred to as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty is done to reshape the eyelids.  The surgery is performed to tighten lose skin and remove bagginess around the eyelids; however, it does not eliminate fine wrinkle lines.  There will be some amount of bruising and swelling after the procedure.  Typically, the bruises disappear in 7 to 10 days.  Sometimes the swelling will last between 1 and 2 weeks.    Blurry vision may result for a few days post operation and patients may experience dry eyes or easily tear up.  The cost starts at approximately $2000 but could cost more than $4000, based on the required amount of reshaping and the cosmetic surgeon.


More commonly known as a nose job, rhinoplasty involves a plastic surgeon reshaping the nose of the patient.  This is performed by altering the bone and cartilage of the nose and removing skin.  Following a nose job, the patient should remain in bed for a day or two.  The patient will experience the brunt of the swelling and bruising in the first 3 days.  The swelling could remain noticeable for several weeks.  In approximately 7 days, most of the bruising should disappear.  The individual should be back to normal in 3 weeks or so.  The procedure costs approximately $4000 and it varies by location and cosmetic surgeon.

These are just a few of the procedures that are commonly carried out by a cosmetic surgeon on individuals who would like to enhance their look or undergo corrective surgery to fix a birth defect.

Fat Transfer to buttocks and Breast Augmentation : Complete Body Transformation with Plastic Surgery

Fat Transfer to buttocks and Breast Augmentation : Complete Body Transformation with Plastic Surgery

Guadalupe transforms her body by having Dr. David Kim perform a Breast Augmentation, Liposuction to the flanks and abdomen as well as a Fat Transfer to the Buttocks knows as Brazilian Butt Lift.

To be a good candidate for liposuction, you must have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for you. It’s important to understand that liposuction can enhance your appearance and self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon.

During your consultation we will discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure and what your desired outcome would be. We will discuss many topics such as desired size, shape, and implant type and incision site. You may also be asked about medical conditions, drug allergies, current medication use, previous surgeries, and family history of breast cancer and results of any mammograms or previous biopsies. Dr. Kim will discuss what procedure will most likely get your desired result and will show photos representing these procedures.
How do you know if you are a candidate for butt augmentation through fat transfer? Usually, if a patient is overweight or wears an eight to 12-dress size, she is probably best suited for transfer and perhaps some liposuction. Thin patients who wear size two to four dresses are usually not good candidates for fat transfer because they do not have any fat to spare.
Fat transfer is done by taking fat from more corpulent areas like the stomach, flanks, (the “love handles”) hips, lower back or thighs. The fat is removed with a very gentle liposuction device that uses a thin cannula (the suction tube) to protect live fat cells. The fat particles are then purified and injected back into the muscle layers of the buttocks through one very small incision. Dr. David Kim puts tiny fat droplets throughout the muscle layers so the fat cells will have a good blood supply and thrive.

Bullied teens getting free plastic surgery

Bullied teens getting free plastic surgery

A NON-PROFIT organisation in New York is offering free plastic surgery for low-income children with facial deformities, raising questions about the power of bullies.

Only some of the children who apply to the Little Baby Face Foundation are responding to being teased. Among them is Renata, 15, who has been homeschooled for the last three years after she could no longer take the cruel comments from her classmates, the US Today show reports.

“They were just calling me ‘that girl with the big nose,’” Renata says. “It just really hurts. And you can’t get over it.”

Renata and her mother read last year about the work of the foundation, when teenager Nadia Ilse’s story was publicised. Renata’s mother was one of hundreds of people who contacted the organisation after seeing the story. “I tried convincing myself that I am fine the way I am, but I just don’t believe it anymore,” Renata wrote in her application letter.

The use of cosmetic surgery to address bullying has some experts concerned, including New York psychologist Vivian Diller, who believes it is more important to instigate zero tolerance of bullying, and encourage the acceptance of difference.

For Renata’s mother, the surgery is akin to rectifying any other sort of medical problem a child might have. “Parents correct kids’ teeth with braces to make their teeth straighter,” she says. “They’re still the same kid on the inside, but, unfortunately, people are judged on how they look.”

Doctors at the foundation also dispute they are running an anti-bullying organization. Thomas Romo, the director of facial, plastic and reconstructive surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital and the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, runs the foundation, which was started in 2002. Mr Romo has treated children with deformities all around the world and wanted to bring that idea home to the US.
