The New World of Plastic or Cosmetic Surgery
If you’re striving for comfort and confidence in your appearance but need a little help from an expert, you may be a good candidate for plastic surgery at Bucks County, PA. Patients at the Glasgold Group can explore a variety of surgical and non-surgical therapies.
Many treatments can be done in the comfort and privacy of our plastic surgery office, rather than in a hospital or surgical center. No matter what your surgery goals may be, the board certified plastic surgeons at the Glasgold Group can provide you with a consultation that will help you make the best choice for your schedule, goals, and lifestyle in the area of Bucks County.
Start with a Non-Invasive Treatment Plan
If you’re uncertain about the whole process of plastic surgery, then you may want to start with a non-invasive therapy. Procedures such as a chemical peel or a Botox® treatment will not require any anesthetic, and you may find that your concerns about your appearance are easily addressed with these therapies alone.
A chemical peel involves removing the top layer of skin to remove imperfections. It reduces the look of fine wrinkles and can improve uneven skin tone and acne. If your physician agrees, you can have a chemical peel as often as every 14 days.
To prepare for this procedure, you may need to limit the use of prescription skin care products, use sunscreen daily, and cut back on abrasive scrubs. For the best results with the least amount of downtime, discuss your current skin care regimen with your physician.
A Botox® treatment does involve a needle, but no incisions are required. Instead, you’ll be injected with a product that will relax the muscles under the skin and fat layer of your face. These muscles create wrinkles over time as you smile, frown, squint, and laugh, but Botox® can ease them temporarily.
Once you have your Botox® treatment, you should notice reduced wrinkling in no more than 7-10 days. The results should last for at least 3 months.
The goal of our Bucks County plastic surgeons is that you enjoy a natural look after your surgery. Above all, however, safety is our surgeons’ main priority! Our experienced surgeons offer a range of surgical options, but eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, and facelift surgery are among the most popular.
About Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery can address drooping, sagging skin and excess fat in the upper and/or lower eyelids. The eye area tends to age quickly, leading to a tired appearance. If you choose to have eyelid surgery with the Glasgold Group, you will need to do some prep work and avoid taking any medications that might promote post-surgical bleeding, such as aspirin or an NSAID.
However, after your surgery, the recovery time will be short. Once the swelling is down, your eyes will appear brighter. You will appear better rested and more alert, but you will not have the obvious look of someone who has undergone plastic surgery.
Are you interested in rhinoplasty? If so, you should know that the consultation process before your surgery will be quite involved. You will need to share the reasons you want this surgery and your goals after the procedure. Plastic surgery and non-surgical treatments can help you look a bit younger, better rested, or gain symmetry.
However, a slight adjustment to your skin or to your facial structure doesn’t necessarily mean a large change to your outlook on life or your position in your community, household, or region. Plastic surgery can add to your confidence, but it won’t change your life unless you’re ready to make those changes!
More Than One Kind of Facelift
If you are considering a facelift, be aware that your Bucks County Plastic Surgeon has options that include a deep plane facelift that will allow you to go home the same day. Be prepared for a detailed conversation before your procedure to make sure that the procedure you get is the one that suits your lifestyle so that your expectations will be successfully met.
Surgical Prep for Any Procedure
No matter the procedure you choose, take care to eat well and hydrate fully the day before your surgery, as you will need to stop all food and drink at midnight before your procedure if you will be receiving anesthesia. Wash your face thoroughly but don’t apply any products once your makeup, moisturizer, sunblock, or any other products have been removed.
You will receive anesthetic before your procedure and monitoring after your surgery to make sure you are recovering normally. Even if you are allowed to return to your home after your procedure in Bucks County, make sure that you have someone who can be there with you as you fully recover from your surgery. Any surgery has risks, and the first 24 hours after a procedure are critical. You will be given aftercare instructions to study before the day of your surgery; in addition to studying them on your own, consider sharing them with your caregiver.
The decision to invest in your own confidence is a smart choice. Board certified plastic surgeon dup Dr. Robert Glasgold and Dr. Mark Glasgold can guide you toward the least invasive surgical choice that will allow you to reach your goals. You might find that you walk in planning for surgery and leave with a simpler course of treatment. Regardless, you will have all the information you need to make the decision that’s right for you and your unique needs.
After a consultation with either Dr. Mark or Dr. Robert Glasgold, you should leave feeling excited about the future and your options for incredible aesthetic results from the Glasgold Group in Bucks County.
