No matter how well we take care of ourselves, there are always going to be areas of our bodies that don’t look as good as we think they should. Plastic surgery is a way of correcting these imperfections and improving our self-esteem. In Boca Raton, FL, and the surrounding areas, Daniel Man, M.D., a board-certified Florida plastic surgeon, performs plastic surgery procedures on people who want to improve specific areas of their bodies and boost their self-confidence.

What is Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery is a very specialized field of medicine in which surgeons are highly trained to perform surgical procedures that reshape areas of the body. These procedures are typically performed on individuals that are unhappy with their physical appearance and want to improve their looks and self-esteem. It is necessary to be aware that plastic surgery requires patients to be healthy psychologically and have realistic expectations about the outcome.

Benefits of Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is performed to improve an individual’s appearance by correcting physical issues with an area of the body. This is truly the main benefit from having these procedures; however, there are other benefits that accompany plastic surgery including:

  • Enhance or regain self-esteem
  • Improve emotional and mental health
  • Better physical health
  • Attain a desired look
  • Reconstruct areas of the body to function properly or relieve discomfort

Is Plastic Surgery Right for Me?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of a specific area of your body or have physical discomfort due to a deformity, plastic surgery may be right for you. Not only do people seek plastic surgery to restructure a part of their body with which they are unhappy, they also seek these procedures to correct a part that does not function properly. For example, those who have a deviated septum often have rhinoplasty to correct the problem so that they can breathe properly. The best way to know if you are a candidate for plastic surgery is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Man so that he can evaluate your health and your concerns to determine if plastic surgery is the best option for you.

How Do I Prepare for Plastic Surgery?

The preparation for plastic surgery depends on the planned procedure. Typically, patients are required to have a pre-op check-up to ensure they are healthy enough for the procedure as well as take steps to ensure no preventable complications occur. This may include stopping all medications and supplements that may inhibit blood clotting a week prior to the procedure as well as avoiding smoking and other actions that hinder the actual procedure and recovery.

How Long is the Recovery from Plastic Surgery?

Just like the preparation, the recovery period is related to the procedure. Some procedures are more invasive and require more healing, including time away from work and limitations of daily activities. Prior to any procedures, we provide patients with a detailed list of instructions to follow to ensure a proper recovery.

How Much Does Plastic Surgery Cost?

The cost for plastic surgery varies depending on the procedure to be performed and whether it is combined with other surgeries or cosmetic treatments. During a consultation, we can discuss the cost as well as our payment options. Typically, unless the surgery is performed for reconstruction purposes, plastic surgery is considered a cosmetic procedure and not covered under insurance. Dr. Man accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards and offers financing to make plastic surgery more affordable for his patients.

What Do I Do Next?

If you are unhappy with a part of your body or suffer from a deformity that causes discomfort, and are interested in having plastic surgery, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Man. At this appointment, he reviews your medical health and history and creates a treatment plan to reach your desired look and goals. This is an excellent opportunity to ask questions including those about costs.
