Cosmetic Surgery

People are aware that no one can be perfect, but with the help of an experienced plastic surgeon, we can overcome our insecurities, fix our imperfections and increase our overall confidence and self-esteem. We have the right to feel beautiful in our own body, and sometimes, a little cosmetic surgery is just the right thing we need to regain our confidence and improve our body image. Thanks to the research conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, we have found out that one out of thirty citizens of the US undergoes some type of plastic surgery. Today, the most popular plastic surgery procedures done not only in the US, but all over the world include liposuction, eyelid surgery, breast augmentation, nose jobs, facelifts, and Botox injections. Dr. Goldman, a renowned surgeon at Beachwood Plastic Surgery, has given us insight into some of the most popular procedures performed, to improve appearances.


Lipoplasty - Body Sculpting

Lipoplasty or liposuction is a very popular method used for removing stubborn pockets of fat on our belly, thighs, behind, knees and similar through a suction tube. Liposuction helps women to get rid of “love handles” or stubborn knee fat and get one step closer to their ideal body image. This surgical surgery is minimally invasive for the patient – everything required for the procedure is to make a small surgical incision and vacuum out the fat with a special device. Afterward, the patient may have minor problems with swelling, bruising and pain, but it only requires a few days of rest to feel good again. Usually, patients need only five days until they feel well enough to get back to work. The cost of lipoplasty in the US varies but always starts around $2,000.

Eyelid Surgery – Blepharoplasty

This plastic surgery procedure is done when you want to reshape your eyelids, remove bagginess and tighten loose skin around your eyelids, giving you a youthful and fresh appearance. However, this procedure doesn’t remove wrinkles. If you want to remove wrinkles, you should do a facelift. After the procedure, the patient will experience some pain, swelling and bruising for the next two or three weeks. The bruises will go away after 7 to 10 days. Patients also have some problems with dry eyes or blurry vision. Depending on your choice of surgeon and the amount of reshaping needed, the costs can exceed $4,000. Dr. Goldman has a lot of experience in eyelid surgeries, and if you are interested in undergoing this procedure, feel free to schedule a free consultation to clarify all your doubts and find out how much the operation will cost you.

Breast Augmentation – Breast Implants

Breast implants are saline or silicone-filled bags that are slid in between the patient’s breast tissue and chest muscles, or between the chest muscles and the chest wall. Although the procedure is very complicated, the patient needs just a day or two to recover from the surgery. However, after this cosmetic procedure, you won’t be able to bathe properly for the next three to seven days. Also, vigorous exercises must be avoided at least for the next two weeks. The price of breast augmentation varies on your choice of plastic surgeon and location but is usually goes around $3,000.
