Plastic Surgery Procedures — The Basics
You may be considering cosmetic surgery right here, right now in New Jersey, but would you believe that plastic surgery was being performed 2700 years ago in Asia? Ancient Indian physicians performed many procedures, mostly reconstructive, though also cosmetic surgeries such as rhinoplasty. The Romans made advances in reconstructive techniques, but it was with the advent of anesthesia that the world would really start to explore the possibilities of cosmetic surgery.
Over 12 million Americans now opt for plastic surgery every year, many in the New Jersey area. The most popular procedures in New Jersey and in the United States are liposuction, breast augmentation, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty (more commonly referred to as a ‘nose job’) and facelifts. There are also a number of non-invasive procedures gaining popularity. Instead of a full facelift, women may decide to first try a combination of microdermabrasion and/or injectables (i.e. Botox, Restalyne, etc.). And it’s not just the women of New Jersey. More and more men are also pursuing cosmetic surgery, specifically liposuction, eyelifts and rhinoplasty.
With the number of procedures performed almost doubling annually, there has never been a better time for you to pursue cosmetic surgery. While there will always be the potential for dangers associated with surgery, the level of expertise that has been accomplished by New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Gartner means that you can feel comfortable opting for that long awaited nose job or breast augmentation you’ve been dreaming of.
Considering Breast Augmentation?
One of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in New Jersey and in the United States today is breast augmentation. There are several procedures that shape and contour the bust, whether it be a breast lift, breast reduction or breast implant procedure. More and more women are choosing to augment their breasts to meet their ideal or restore a more youthful look. But you may be surprised to know that breast augmentation is not a concept new to the modern New Jersey woman. In fact, since the late 1800s, women have pursued surgical assistance in perfecting their breasts.
Most New Jersey women now option for insertion of silicon or saline implants either above or below the muscle behind the breast tissue. A variety of sizes are available, one to accomplish every desired look.
You and recognized New Jersey plastic surgeon, Dr. Gartner, will review your body type and expectations for the surgery before deciding on the size, shape and type of breast implant appropriate for you.
