Cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures like, body contouring, liposuction and tummy tuck are all popular, but what is the purpose and function of each one, find out here.
For many couples who meet in their prime, get married, have children and raise a family together, time and age can take a toll on their bodies. Heather and David Robertson recognized how life and time had changed their physical appearances, and they wanted to do something to change their images, so they decided to have cosmetic surgery procedures, together. For both, this decision made sense. They had done most everything else together for the last 18 years, like: marriage, four children, raising a family, taking vacations, and this was just a new mutual venture, to cosmetically restore features that changed shape, over time. After having four children, Heather elected to have a tummy tuck, while her husband, David, decided on chin lift surgery. Couples seeking to have cosmetic surgery together is becoming more common, according to Dr. Anthony Youn, a board certified plastic surgeon located in Michigan.
Patients who undergo the procedure known as a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty are overwhelmingly satisfied with their results, says Dr. Eric Chang of Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The board-certified plastic surgeon in Baltimore sees numerous patients for this procedure and says it can help improve people's self-image as well as their body contours.
