Having an attractive body allows you to feel good about yourself and convey an air of confidence in interactions with others. Sometimes, the personal changes you make are not enough to create the desired appearance. As a skilled cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Alan Greenberg can help you determine the best course of action to produce positive results, such as breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck or mommy makeover.
Before considering cosmetic surgery, you should understand the facts.
Myth: Cosmetic surgery is only an option for the rich and famous.
Fact: Because of rising popularity, patients who want cosmetic surgery now have financing available, making it affordable and reasonable for most people to update their appearances.
Myth: Cosmetic surgery is no big deal.
Fact: Although considered elective, these procedures are still surgery, which means you may experience some pain as well as some down time. Dr. Greenberg will explain the process in detail so that you know what to expect and can take steps to maximize your recovery.
Myth: Cosmetic surgery will completely transform my body.
Fact: Modern treatments such as breast augmentation or tummy tucks can improve your appearance, but you can’t expect to go from a size 14 to a size 4 without additional efforts. Diet and exercise are important in achieving and maintaining the image you want.
