A Cosmetic Surgery is a type of plastic surgery that aims to improve a person’s appearance, but it should be approached with caution. The procedures for a cosmetic surgery are available for almost any part of the body, but the choice to undergo cosmetic surgery should not be taken lightly. The results of such surgeries are often permanent, so it is important to be sure about the decision, to use an appropriate practitioner, and to have the right motivation.

The Patient is informed about the specific procedures, what to expect, the benefits, risks and possible complications, as well as other alternatives. The Physician may also recommend additional procedures to enhance the overall result.
