Cosmetic surgery is essentially an elective surgical procedure to reshape and sculpt facial or bodily structures to improve appearance and boost a person’s self esteem. It is important to have completely realistic expectations when opting for plastic surgery. Listen intently to your doctor – he will let you know what to expect. Cosmetic surgery includes everything from BOTOX to rhinoplasty (more commonly known as a “nose job”), from specifically Cosmetic eyelid surgeries (blepharoplasty) to lip enhancements. There’s endless options for achieving your desired look. Procedures can be invasive (such as a facelift) or non-invasive (such as wrinkle treatment).
