FAQs about Cosmetic Surgery

FAQs about Cosmetic Surgery

What are the goals of cosmetic facial surgery?

People seek cosmetic facial surgery because they want to refresh their appearance and feel more confident and self-assured. Whether facial flaws originate in the aging process or result from trauma, congenital defect, acne scarring, or any other circumstance, your physicians at Florida Dermatology Associates can give you the help you need!

What kinds of procedures does Florida Dermatology Associates offer?

Dr. Lee and Dr. Moreno and their team offer several leading-edge procedures which can:

  • Reduce areas of hyper-pigmentation, remove scars, and smooth lines and wrinkles (both static and dynamic)
  • Remove unwanted hair from shoulders, chest, legs, face, underarms and bikini line
  • Resurface aging skin
  • Eliminate areas of redness
  • Treat small, but obvious, spider veins

Do I qualify for these procedures?

Because you'll be seeing a board-certified dermatologist when you come to Florida Dermatology Associates, you're assured of a complete skin examination and review of your medical and surgical history. Your doctor will recommend only the procedures appropriate to your skin type, age, aesthetic goals, and overall health. Treatment plans are tailored to you and no one else!

Will I need special care after I have my procedure?

Many procedures, such as laser hair removal and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments, cause no, or very little, downtime. Surgical facelifts, on the other hand, do carry a recovery period. Your doctor will outline what you must do both before and after your procedure to ensure your safety, best results, and complete recovery.

How many people get cosmetic surgeries?

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says these procedures increase in number every year. In 2018 alone, American adults expended $16.5 billion on cosmetic surgeries and less invasive treatments (such as laser resurfacing or BOTOX injections). The procedures themselves number in the millions.
