OMC’s plastic surgery team can help improve certain aspects of your body. And a positive body image can improve self-esteem, self-confidence, and psychological well being. However, it’s important to understand the reasons why you are considering plastic surgery.
Cosmetic surgery procedures alter a part of the body you wish to modify. Some cosmetic procedures aren't surgical in nature and may use things like lasers and imaging. All cosmetic procedures need to be fully understood and the risks/benefits weighed to ensure a surgical approach is right for you.
Reconstructive surgery procedures may be done to correct defects or deformities due to traumatic injuries, disease, or medical treatment. In these cases, we help restore the affected body area to as near-to-normal as possible.
By keeping your expectations realistic and approaching plastic surgery as a means to improving body image—rather than trying to look like someone else or solve bigger problems—you can expect a successful plastic surgery experience. Our experienced staff will explain the typical results, expected down-time, risks, and associated expenses with you.
We welcome you as a patient and look forward to sharing our treatment philosophy with you. If plastic surgery is right for you or your loved one, we’ll approach it in the most personalized, skilled, compassionate, and confidential manner possible. Together, we will develop a plan that’s right for you.
