​ ​Surgical techniques and devices have improved and are available for medically optimized individuals. ​ ​Surgery and procedures which require local, sedation and general anesthetics offer a safe positive experience for the majority of elective cosmetic procedures. ​ ​​There are many considerations, costs, recovery time and other factors to review. There are many, many patients who proceed with positively reaching their desires and goals. ​​ ​A well experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and your Primary Care Physician must evaluate you, optimize your medical condition(s) and if the risk / benefit ratio is reasonable proceed recognizing this DOES NOT mean no risk. ​ ​ ​I hope this was helpful. ​ ​All the best!
