It's a very tough choice for women to decide which implant to go with. Although the silicone implants feel much more real than the saline implants, they're also more expensive.

These details often leave women wondering which option is best for them.

Which would you choose?

Finance Your Plastic Surgery Procedure Today!

Plastic Surgery Financing

Are you planning on using your health insurance policy to help pay for your Cosmetic Surgery procedure? In actuality, if you are getting surgery for cosmetic purposes, the chances of your procedure being covered are slim to none.

Generally, health insurance will not cover the costs of surgery or any related expenses to elective, cosmetic plastic surgery. And, the reality is that most people that seek plastic surgery are not able to pay the full amount upfront.

During these difficult economic times, My Plastic Surgeon USA is offering plastic surgery financing options to make covering these costs feasible. Why wait for your transformation to begin.

First US Face Transplant a Success!

Expert plastic surgeons and micro-surgeons from all over the United States announced on Wednesday that they had successfully transplanted a woman's face in a ground-breaking 22 hour surgery.

The woman was so disfigured that 80% of her face had to be replaced, according to surgeons, which is by far the highest percentage of facial tissue including skin, bone and cartilage that has ever been attempted before. According to U.S. News and World Report,

The patient, identified only as a female and a U.S. citizen, had suffered a major facial trauma in the middle of her face so that multiple parts of her face were missing, including skin, bone, nose, eyelids, upper lid, right eye. She could not smell and had trouble speaking and could not eat or breathe without a tracheostomy.

"She was really suffering whenever she appeared in a social situation, was called names, children were afraid of her, were running away. The patient was brave, and she was very stable and facing the world. However, it became very difficult for her just to go outside of her house," Siemionow said.

Doctors would not disclose what kind of trauma was responsible for the disfigurement, only that the patient had exhausted all existing, conventional procedures, a condition for eligibility for the rare procedure.

Indeed, this is a breakthrough for the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery, and there is no doubt that the efforts of many cosmetic surgeons throughout the United States contributed to the success of the Cleveland Clinic's surgical team.

Are you a Botox Candidate?

Are you a Good Candidate?

The best candidates for Botox are both men and women, who:

  • Are you between the ages of 18 and 65 years old?
  • Do you have frown lines?
  • Do you have creases in your forehead?
  • Do you have a lot of wrinkles?
  • Do you have a good amount of migraine headaches?
  • Do you sweat excessively?

If you:

  • Have unrealistic expectations this may not be for you. Botox is not the 'fountain of youth'. Rather, it is one more way modern medical technology can help you look younger. Proper diet and exercise can contribute to a younger, healthier look as well. You should discuss this with your plastic surgeon.
  • Are not physically healthy, you may not be a good candidate for Botox.
  • Have any diseases that affect nerves and muscles. Be sure to tell your plastic surgeon.
  • Are breast feeding or planning to become pregnant soon it is not recommended to use Botox.

Plastic Surgery Term: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

What is a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure that dramatically reduces the area of the abdomen surrounding the waistline.

A Tummy Tuck will remove excess fat and skin, and tighten the muscles of your abdomen, creating a more flat, contoured waistline. Many surgeons utilize liposuction technology in concert with abdominoplasty to achieve the desired results.

This plastic surgery procedure can take anywhere from 2-5 hours. Most patients are back to work within 3-4 weeks.

In addition, those who undergo a Tummy Tuck procedure usually do so after pregnancy which may leave them with excess skin and unwanted fat, or after they have lost an optimal amount of weight and still have stubborn pockets of excess fat and sagging skin.

For more information on the abdominoplasty, including Before and After photos, please visit My Plastic Surgeon USA to read more about Tummy Tuck surgery and see if it is right for you!

My Plastic Surgeon USA Success Stories

There are many reasons that motivate people to consider cosmetic surgery, which range from a desire to achieve a certain aesthetic 'look', to reconstructive surgery to repair the damage from an accident or to correct the effects of surgery due to disease. Whatever your motivations, there are many benefits from cosmetic surgery that are not immediately evident on the outside; rather, they affect transformation within. Increased elf-esteem and self-confidence can be indirect, but powerful results of cosmetic surgery.

But, don't take our word for it, read what an actual patient has to say about the results of her elective surgery:

Lovely Ears

by Marilyn

Throughout my elementary and high school years, I was the butt of all jokes for having pointy ears. Because of this unsightly trait, other students would call me names like "Big Ears" or "Dumbo." It made me feel terrible! Before going to college, I decided to get Ear Pinning Surgery (Otoplasty) to prevent satire, ridicule and all other forms of mockery. I did not want to re-live my elementary and high school years.

In search for a plastic surgeon in my area, I decided to use the Internet to locate someone who was b
oard certified. On Google, I found Riverside Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Alexander Carli on My Plastic Surgeon USA. Dr. Carli and his staff were extremely kind and knowledgeable of the field of plastic surgery. They assisted me both mentally and physically throughout the procedure. I am very thankful to both Dr. Carli and My Plastic Surgeon USA for helping me become a more confident and comfortable individual.

My Plastic Surgeon USA Supports Iraq Star Foundation

The statistics are grim: more than 30,000 men and women have returned wounded from Iraq. They must now face the daunting challenge of recovery. The military will replace missing arms and legs with prosthetics, provide the initial surgeries to close the wounds and grafts to replace burned flesh, striving tirelessly to make our veterans functioning people. But the fact stands that terrible scarring from shrapnel, burns and wound trauma remain. Surgeries are still needed to help our veterans gain back their pre-war lives, to assist them in holding their heads high, and help them return to their homes and careers.

Iraq Star, Inc. is a non-profit foundation dedicated to providing the necessary reconstructive surgeries to assist war veterans recovering from physical and mental injuries. It is the Foundation's hope that reconstructive surgery will also help our veterans heal from emotional trauma, increase self-esteem and ease their return to their pre-war lives.

My Plastic Surgeon USA is proud to support our troops all over the world and the important work being done by the Iraq Star Foundation.

Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgery

Rhinoplasty or 'nasal reshaping' is a common plastic surgery procedure that has gained social acceptance the last few years and has become quite popular. In fact, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), rhinoplasty has become the second most popular elective surgery in the United States.

Performed usually in an outpatient facility, the procedure takes 1-2 hours, depending on the patient and circumstances. Although it is a relatively short surgical procedure, the skill and experience of the surgeon you choose matters greatly because the nose is the central focus of your face. A properly proportioned and shaped nose can bring harmony to your face, creating more self-confidence and self-esteem.

Don't take chances when it comes to your rhinoplasty surgeon. Be sure your surgeon is a Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon who has extensive experience performing rhinoplasty surgery. Use My Plastic Surgeon USA's Surgeon Locator to find a Board Certified surgeon in your area. At My Plastic Surgeon USA, our featured surgeons are always Board Certified and always highly qualified.
