There are many reasons why people have plastic surgery. Award winning and board certified Seattle plastic surgeon, Dr. Shahram Salemy shares his insights on what prompts patients to come into the office.
“While patients come into our office for a variety of reasons, one of the most common reasons to undergo cosmetic surgery is wanting to look and feel their best,” profess Dr. Salemy. He also adds that patients who come in for the appropriate reasons and expectations often achieve great results with smooth recoveries.
Many patients see him for popular procedures including breast augmentation and enhancement, mommy makeover, tummy tuck, facelift, rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) as well as body contouring procedures including arm lift, thigh lift and Brazilian butt lift. In addition, Dr. Salemy provides non-surgical services including skin treatments, botox and other dermal fillers.
Once you have decided to undergo cosmetic surgery, selecting the right plastic surgeon is important. Dr. Salemy recommends consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and understand expected results and possible risks. During the consultation, find out more information about the surgeon to see if it’s a fit for you – certifications, years of experience with the procedure, before and after photos of the procedure, and surgeon’s patient care and approach.
