Cosmetic surgery in Charlotte, NC- and choosing the surgeon

Cosmetic surgery and its popularity

Cosmetic surgery is becoming more and more popular. A lot of people want cosmetic surgery. This form of surgery is popular even though it is the subject of questions, especially when disproportionately directed at women. Recently, Megyn Kelly of NBC made headlines she would probably rather have left unmade by trying to get Jane Fonda to talk about her cosmetic surgery. She did this while Robert Redford was sitting right next to her, 81 years old and looking maybe 65. This is why it is increasingly considered impolite to comment on cosmetic surgery, except to compliment it.

Cosmetic surgery should not be a decision you make on the spur of the moment. It is expensive and is not usually covered by insurance. In addition, the effects of such procedures as face, neck and brow lifts will last until your face ages again, and the effects of rhinoplasty or facial implants will be with you for the rest of your life. For these reasons, you want to make sure you have the most experienced Charlotte, NC facial plastic surgeon around.

Knowing what you want

Even more important is knowing exactly what you want from your cosmetic surgery. If your surgeon knows this, he or she will be able to develop a plan. It depends on whether you are trying to look younger or trying to look better.

If you need cosmetic surgery to look younger, ask a Charlotte, NC expert which combination of procedures will achieve the right results. If you are still fairly young or well-preserved, sometimes injectables, laser skin-rejuvenation or some other nonsurgical procedure will achieve the results. If your nose seems too big, you either need rhinoplasty and/or a chin implant. Whatever procedure you decide on, you are going to want it done by someone with decades of experience, many positive testimonials, a collection of before and after photographs of patients and at least one if not two board certifications.


There are some basic rules governing cosmetic surgery. Nicotine constricts blood vessels and slows the healing process, while aspirin and ibuprofen thin the blood and cause more extensive bruising. So if you smoke, you should stop for a few weeks before any procedure, and refrain from taking aspirin or ibuprofen for the same amount of time. Your facial plastic surgeon will be able to give you more specific guidelines.
