Plastic surgery can be a great way for men and women to turn back the clock and look years younger. But plastic surgery is not for everyone, and it should be closer to your last option than your first choice for improving your appearance. If you are unhappy with your appearance, the first thing you should do is try these techniques for improving your appearance without surgery. Some things to try include:

  • An advanced skin care program
  • A healthy exercise regimen that includes toning exercises
  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Quitting smoking
  • Reducing your sun exposure
  • Doing an honest assessment of your wardrobe and makeup

For some people, especially those starting young, doing these things will reduce the impact of aging on your face and body enough that you can put off plastic surgery for a number of years. For other people, taking these steps will dramatically improve the results of your plastic surgery.

Some things just do not respond to any of these methods. Breast augmentation and tummy tuck are popular procedures because the results they achieve simply cannot be achieved any other way. But even these procedures are improved by taking good care of your skin and losing weight with diet and exercise before getting your procedure.

To learn how to get the best results from your plastic surgery, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Vasdev Rai at the Cosmetic Surgical Center. He can perform an evaluation and let you know what you can do to improve your appearance, both before and after surgery.
