Chances are, you are reading this blog because you came across our site on Google. The World Wide Web has certainly improved our ability to obtain information. At the same time, online searches may also lead you down a path of mystical stories rather than facts. This is not what you need when determining whether or not to move forward with your desire for cosmetic plastic surgery. Here, we are going to do a little myth busting.
There is no difference between cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery.
If anything, consumers may realize that there is a slight difference between these two specialties. The common idea, however, is that plastic surgery is focused on procedures that “reconstruct,” rather than enhanced beauty. The truth of the matter is that cosmetic surgery procedures are best performed by a licensed, board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Serure is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He was certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery more than 25 years ago, and continues to be known for his outstanding commitment to patient care. A plastic surgeon has undergone multi-year residency training and both general surgery and in plastic surgery. A “cosmetic surgeon” is may have only completed short-term training on specific procedures such as breast implant surgery.

This cosmetic procedure is incredibly popular, and for good reason. The targeted removal of fatty deposits can reduce circumference, and therefore, your pant size. However, liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. It is a body contouring surgery.
Breast implant surgery is a one-and-done procedure.
One of the important considerations that needs to be made before breast augmentation is the matter of lifelong commitment. Patients treated with breast augmentation are encouraged to maintain follow up with their physician in order to continually monitor the structural stability of their saline or silicone implants. Generally, replacement is needed after 15 years.
