Taking the Smart Approach in Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures
In 2012, minimally invasive plastic surgeries spiked to 10 percent than that of 2011, with Botox heading the list of top 5 non-surgical procedures. Despite the popularity of such surgeries, there has been an increasing concern on who performs these surgeries and where exactly they are being performed. Thus, here at our Manhattan cosmetic surgery practice, we encourage our clients to seek the services of a trusted and experienced cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Wallach when considering non-surgical alternatives. After all, non-surgical does not really mean it’s non-medical.
Whether it’s Botox or a laser procedure you’re considering, the following elements should be carefully assessed and taken into account:
Health History and Previous Hospitalizations/Treatments Received – All types of surgeries come with risks thus the need to assess medical history to avoid potential allergic reactions to anesthesia and medications. The existence of underlying medical conditions may also pose risks.
Appropriate Venues – Like surgical procedures, a non-surgical procedure also needs to be performed in a sterile setting, complemented with equipment employing advanced technologies. So why would you want to participate in Botox parties?
Informed Consent – Here at our practice, we make sure that all clients are well-informed, both pros and cons are discussed, including the exploration of alternative treatments.
Follow-Up Care – This aspect is of equal importance to pre-procedure preparation. What you do post-surgery will significantly affect the outcome of the procedure.
