If you watch any of the plastic surgery reality programs you will notice that the patient arrives in the clinic and when the doctor asks her/him what s/he can do, the response is vague. "I would like my face to look younger
," or "I would like a better looking nose
," or something along those lines. We found in our research that most patients have only one procedure in mind when they start doing the research but then the doctor starts to explain that they actually need more than one procedure or what doctors call as "extreme cosmetic surgery."
Such surgeries last much longer (you are under anesthesia for a longer period of time), but the recovery time
is shorter and you see the results sooner. In most cases, they cost less than having multiple surgeries over a period of time.
New research now shows that these multiple surgical procedures are actually safer
than what was initially believed.
