Choosing the Right Procedure

Many times patients are unsure which plastic surgery procedure may be more suited for their needs. It is important to discuss personal aesthetic goals, desires and expectations with the cosmetic surgeon during the initial consultation. Once the surgeon evaluates and decides that the patient may be a good candidate for plastic surgery, he or she may suggest various treatment options along with their associated costs, risks and benefits.

As an experienced plastic surgeon in Manhattan, Dr. Vendemia helps his patients make informed choices according to their needs. He also shows them before and after pictures of various procedures so that the patients understand clearly the outcomes of each procedure and make their choices appropriately. When a patient has realistic expectations from a procedure, the satisfaction levels are usually high.

Risks and Recovery

Plastic surgery as well as reconstructive procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation. Some minor procedures may be performed under local anesthesia. An experienced surgeon will provide the treatment in a safe surgical environment, and provide conservative surgery while keeping patient safety as the top priority. Common procedures such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck surgery, breast lift, or liposuction should be performed only by a plastic surgeon with proven expertise and past experience in performing such procedures.
