Plastic Surgery: Can a lift give you a lift? [INFOGRAPHIC]
June 11, 2013
As a field of medicine, aesthetic plastic surgery is unique in that patients actively seek out procedures and pay out of pocket to not only help them look better, but to feel better. That being said, having an 87% patient approval rating with 97% recommending others and 93% coming back for more is a testament to the specialty. It’s no coincidence that the cosmetic surgery procedures that have seen landmark growth are ones that give you a lift – upper arm lift, breast lift, thigh lift, lower body lift and tummy tuck. Lift procedures help dramatic weight-loss patients remove large amounts of skin and fat left behind, as well as those who have stretched out their skin from pregnancy, weight fluctuations and the loss of muscle from aging. All that excess skin can sure weigh a person down.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), is recognized as the world’s leading organization devoted entirely to aesthetic plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine of the face and body. ASAPS is comprised of over 2,600 Plastic Surgeons; active members are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (USA) or by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and have extensive training in the complete spectrum of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures. International active members are certified by equivalent boards of their respective countries. All members worldwide adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and must meet stringent membership requirements.
