The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) is planning to launch a new magazine, called the New You Magazine, at the end of this year. It will be the official magazine of the AACS and will be on sale to the public. Its mission is to promote cosmetic surgery by disseminating correct information about it.

  • “We are going to educate the public about cosmetic surgery so that they will feel informed and comfortable enough to make a decision,” states the magazine editor, J.P. Faber. “Our goal is to remove the most common fears surrounding cosmetic surgery – as well as making it more attractive.”

Most people have a lot of questions about cosmetic procedures and some have reservations. The global market research company Synovate, Inc. did some research on what factors prevent people from going ahead with cosmetic surgery they are interested in. They came up with four main factors:

  1. The cost
  2. Fear of looking unnatural afterwards
  3. Fear of pain
  4. Fear of surgical complications

All four of these factors probably contribute to the popularity of non-invasive cosmetic surgery procedures such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and facial fillers. They cost less, give almost no pain or discomfort, have very few complications, and give excellent results.

A qualified and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Rai offers a wide array of procedures, both invasive and non-invasive, to suit all budgets and schedules. Patient education is always a high priority so that you will understand what is being done, why, and how to optimize your outcome.

When you have major surgery such as a tummy tuck or breast implants, it is crucial to follow your surgeon’s instructions both before and after your procedure. That is for your safety and you will be far less likely to have any surgical complications if you are faithful in following those instructions.

The New You Magazine will try to promote patient education and allay fears with accurate information.

  • “For every person who has undergone a cosmetic procedure, there are at least two more people who would like to,” says Faber. “Our job is to overcome their barriers to making that decision.”

The New You Magazine has a website, although it is not yet complete.
