Studies show that cosmetic surgical procedures have been on the rise in the United States for at least a decade. From 1997-2011, there was nearly a 540% increase in the number of breast lift procedures, and liposuction has just surpassed breast augmentation as the most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States. There are numerous options available for anyone who is looking to improve their aesthetic appearance, and our office is here to equip you with the information you need to make the best decision.
Types of Procedures
Here at the Pacific Plastic Surgery Group we provide almost all of the esthetic surgery procedures available – from the most traditional to the latest trends in plastic surgery – at the high-quality you are looking for. Our Board-Certified San Francisco plastic surgeon, Dr. Edward P. Miranda, M.D. FACS believes that gentle, natural results are nearly always more aesthetically pleasing than an over-the-top change. As a result of our extensive training and 11 years of plastic surgery experience, our office is able to advise patients on what procedure will result in the best outcome. Please click any of the following areas to learn more about the specific procedures that can improve your overall appearance.
Face & Neck
It is common for certain parts of our faces to droop, sag and develop wrinkles as we age. The skin on our necks, eyebrows, eyelids and faces can lose its tight appearance, and there are specific plastic surgery procedures that target each of these areas individually. A skilled surgeon can tailor each procedure to the individual patient in order to yield the best results, and procedures like facelifts are commonly combined with brow lifts, neck liposuction and others depending on the needs of the patient.
There are many reasons why women chose to have plastic surgery on their breasts. Breast augmentation is a popular choice for women who are looking for larger breasts or better breast contour, and these surgeries can be done with minimal discomfort. Breast reduction is also a common choice for women, and many men undergo male breast reduction (gynecomastia) in order to remove excess skin or breast tissue to achieve a more natural appearance.
Out of all of the plastic surgery procedures in the United States, liposuction is the most commonly performed. There were over 325,332 liposuctions in 2011 alone, followed by 149,410 abdominoplasty (tummy tucks) procedures. In addition to these, the Pacific Plastic Surgery Group also offers many safe and innovative plastic surgery procedures for those who are seeking an ideal figure, including arm lifts, thigh lifts, butt lifts and more.
If you are noticing the first signs of premature aging and would like a less-invasive solution than surgery, there is a wide spectrum of non-surgical, anti-aging skin care modalities available for you. Non-surgical procedures like fillers or Botox® are a great way to explore your options and see results before you commit to plastic surgery. The Pacific Plastic Surgery Group also offers LaViv™ for patients who are looking to improve the look of smile lines.
