What Should I Know Before Electing Surgery?
Every patient is different. Plastic Surgery is not a simple decision, and every single patient has different needs. It has also been found that the procedure you initially want, will not produce the results you desire, and that a different procedure, would. It is very important for you to set up a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, and to go in there with an open mind. Your plastic surgeon will answer all of your questions, tell you exactly what procedure will be the best fit for you, to reach your goals, and will also be very candid if your goals are realistic.
One key thing to note, when choosing your plastic surgeon, do not simply ask if they are board certified. Be sure to ask, is the plastic surgeon board certified in plastic surgery. All surgeons on MyplasticsurgeonUSA.com are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Women's Self-Image and Sexual Satisfaction Increase After Cosmetic Surgery
Body image and sexual pleasure, including orgasm, enhanced after aesthetic makeovers
According to a study done by Aesthetic Surgery Journal, data from a study shows the impact of aesthetic plastic surgery on body image and sexual satisfaction. Women who undergo common elective cosmetic surgery procedures not only feel better about their bodies, but also have higher degrees of satisfaction with their sex lives, including ability to orgasm. Women in the study who had undergone aesthetic procedures were more sexually satisfied, reported that their partners were more sexually satisfied, dressed to enhance their new figures, and were apt to try more and different sexual activities post-surgery. The greatest benefits were seen in women who had breast augmentation/breast lift and/or body contouring procedures.
This study was published in the January/February 2006 issue of Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the peer-reviewed publication of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

Plastic Surgery Term: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
What is a Tummy Tuck?
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure that dramatically reduces the appearance of a chubby abdomen.
A Tummy Tuck will remove excess fat and skin, and tighten the muscles of your abdomen, making a more flat abdomen. This plastic surgery procedure can take anywhere from 2-5 hours. Most patients are back to work within 3-4 weeks.
Most people who undergo a tummy tuck do so after a pregnancy which may leave them with excess skin or after they have lost an optimal amount of weight and still have stubborn pockets of excess fat.

BOTOX. What is it?
Frown lines, creases in the forehead, crows feet and thick bands in the neck area are all places of worry when it comes to aging. Literally. They form when we worry, and we worry about them when they form. It makes us look old, and when we look old, we feel old.
That's where BOTOX comes in.
BOTOX (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a non-surgical procedure performed to make your skin smoother, leaving you with a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
What it does is temporarily prevent the muscles that cause wrinkles from constricting by blocking the nerve impulses. BOTOX has also been found to be very effective in relieving migraine headaches, muscle spasms and even extreme sweating. Most patients are between the ages of 18 and 65 years old and both men and women are good candidates for BOTOX.
BOTOX is the only treatment of its type that is approved by the Food and Drug administration (FDA). This is very important to note. The entire procedure typically takes no more than 10 minutes, and there is no recovery time needed.
To find out more about BOTOX visit My Plastic Surgeon USA.
