Male Gynecomastia Reduction
Q. How cosmetic surgery help to reshape the body?
Minimizing the Effects of Aging - Nowhere does aging leave its imprint more noticeably than on the face. Sun exposure as well as aging contribute to facial wrinkling, as do diet, the amount of alcohol you consume, and whether or not you smoke.
Facial rejuvenation surgery may involve procedures of the face and neck, eyelids, forehead and eyebrow areas, and procedures to reduce fine skin lines. These procedures can often be performed at the same time or can be carried out in separate sessions.
Which procedure, or combination of procedures, is right for you depends on your personal objectives and the opinion of your surgeon.
Redefining Facial Features - Irregularities of the nose, ears, cheeks or chin may upset the balance of the face and affect the overall appearance, since these features are often viewed in relation to one another.
Aesthetic surgery can reshape the nose, diminish prominence of the ears, and reshape the chin or cheeks to improve excesses or deficiencies in these areas. In many cases, changing a single facial feature can enhance your entire appearance and affect the way you feel about yourself.
Body Contouring -There are several aesthetic procedures to reshape the breasts, abdomen and other parts of the body. Dramatic advances have been made in recent years, particularly in suction techniques that now often replace more extensive surgery to remove unwanted fat.
The success of body contouring - whether it is done to reduce, enlarge or lift - is influenced by your age and the size, shape and skin tone of the area to be treated. While some contouring procedures leave small scars, more noticeable scars may result when surgical removal of fat and skin is necessary to achieve desired results. In such cases, you must be willing to accept these scars in exchange for looking better in clothing.

Q. Are you a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Surgery?
The ideal candidate for aesthetic surgery is an individual who recognizes a specific area in which his or her appearance could be improved and has a strong personal desire to make a change. This personal desire may be influenced to some degree by the individual's role in society. Because our culture is youth-oriented, people seek ways to counter the effects of aging on their appearance. Many elect surgery to look as young as they feel, to build confidence after a lifestyle change or to retain their edge against younger competitors.
Whatever your reasons for choosing aesthetic surgery, it is important to have realistic expectations. Improving a feature of the face or body may give you greater self - confidence and add to your sense of well-being, but it is not a guarantee of happiness or better relationships with others. Surgery can enhance your appearance; the rest is up to you.
As with all surgical procedures, cosmetic surgery carries with it certain risks. Select a doctor who is well-trained and experienced in performing the specific procedure you want. (For help, use the questions listed inside.) Find out beforehand any possible side effects, risks, and complications of the surgery you want. Early on, discuss with your doctor what goals you hope to accomplish with cosmetic surgery and whether these goals are realistic. Remember that insurance usually does not cover costs for elective cosmetic surgery.

Q. Are you Considering Cosmetic Surgery?
If you are considering cosmetic surgery it is vital you take the time to research your options and examine your reasons carefully.
We are constantly making choices throughout our lives about the way we look and how we feel about ourselves. What was considered to be exclusively for the very wealthy has become more available to society today as a whole. With so many more options available to you it is imperative that you take the time to consider them all.
It is also very important to make sure you are having surgery for yourself and not to please somebody else. You must make sure your expectations are realistic. Whilst perhaps a new bust will give your confidence a boost it will not guarantee a career as a model. However, many people find that cosmetic surgery is beneficial. So before you decide as to whether plastic or cosmetic surgery is right for you have to think carefully about your own expectations and remember some surgeons may refuse to operate if they feel that a person has unrealistic expectations.
