Craniofacial Surgeons vs. Plastic Surgeon

by Stephanie Meadows
Unlike other medical procedures (like hip or knee surgery), plastic surgery can be one of the most misunderstood surgical procedures in the healthcare industry. While it is true that many people undergo plastic surgery for purely cosmetic and aesthetic reasons, popular culture and general misconceptions tend to use the terms plastic and cosmetic surgery interchangeably.

All of them focus on a specific outcome for the patient, but can often be integrated with each other to provide the best outcome for the patient.

Our skin tends to lose its elasticity as we get older, and not just on our faces. This also happens around the breast area, but pregnancy can also be a big factor for saggy breasts. As a result, many women may notice a change in their breasts before and after their pregnancy.

Let’s Talk about Botox: What is it and Should You Consider it?

by Shearly (SU)
Everyone’s heard of Botox, but few actually know what it is and who it can benefit. Botox is technically an injectable drug derived from a toxin; in small applications, it treats conditions by paralyzing muscles and nerves. While this may sound scary, if applied correctly by a knowledgeable doctor or plastic surgeon, Botox is very safe with the most common side effects being pain or bruising in the injection site.
