We’ve all known or seen someone who’s hadA Renewed You: Atlanta Magazine November Issue Features Band Aid Procedures so much plastic surgery they barely resemble their younger self. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, I couldn’t disagree more with this kind of approach to cosmetic procedures.
I’ve always thought of plastic surgery as a way to enhance – not dramatically alter – an individual’s natural and unique look. As the late Dr. Seuss wrote, “You are you. That is truer than true. There is no one who is you-er than you.” I agree wholeheartedly with that sentiment. Cosmetic surgery should not make you look like a different person; rather, it should simply help reinstate the confidence and poise you had as a younger person and correct small imperfections caused by age and stress. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your signature smile just to get rid of the lines around it, and Band Aid Plastic Surgery doesn’t require you to.
Many of my patients tell me that they are often surprised by the reflection in the mirror; after all, they certainly don’t feel any different than they did 20 or 30 years ago. I understand that completely – I’ve changed too over the years! These patients want to get back some of the smoothness, firmness, and vibrancy of their younger years, and many of them turn to Band Aid Plastic Surgery to accomplish their aesthetic goals.
My Band Aid procedures are minimally invasive and performed in office with very little recovery time. I use a gentle numbing product instead of general anesthesia so that you can get back to your life as soon as possible after the surgery is complete. Procedures like Band Aid Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and Band Aid Skin Tightening are comparatively small adjustments that may help reduce or eliminate the necessity of more comprehensive surgeries later in life.
Making small changes on the outside can have an extremely positive impact on the inside.
