Cosmetic Surgery Scottsdale
Facial Cosmetic Surgery, or Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery, is plastic surgery to the face, head or neck that is done for purely cosmetic or aesthetic reasons. These procedures don’t involve functional corrections, reconstructive surgery or medically necessary surgeries. However, some cosmetic surgeries will overlap with reconstructive surgeries.
Common reasons for cosmetic surgery or aesthetic facial plastic surgery is for anti-aging purposes or because the patient is unhappy about how a specific part of their face or neck looks.
While it’s called “cosmetic” surgery, surgery is still surgery; it’s still a medical procedure. As such, it’s important to do your homework and ensure you’re receiving treatment from a skilled, board-certified facial plastic surgeon, a physician who specializes in facial structure and contouring, facial balance and facial aging. Where issues of the nose (in cases of rhinoplasty) or ears (in cases of ear reshaping surgeries) are concerned, a board-certified otolaryngologist is also helpful to ensure the function of these areas remains intact during the cosmetic changes.
Dr. David Hecht is double-board certified in both facial plastic surgery with the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) and otolaryngology with the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, making him uniquely qualified to perform cosmetic surgery procedures on the face. This, combined with his proven track record of success and experience with top facial plastic surgeons in the country, makes Dr. Hecht a top doctor in Scottsdale, AZ for both cosmetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery procedures.
Facial cosmetic surgery covers a large number of procedures from a full face lift (rhytidectomy) to a quick chin implant, so preparation, time in surgery, and post-operative care varies between each surgery. However, anyone seeking any cosmetic surgery procedure should be in relatively good physicial and psychological health, understand the risks associated with surgery, be prepared to take time off work to rest, and assume partial responsibility for their recovery. Cosmetic surgery is not generally covered by medical insurance, so patients must secure financing for any costs that can’t be immediately covered.
In addition to surgical procedures, we also offer non-surgical cosmetic services including Botox for facial wrinkles and dermal fillers to restore lost facial volume, including Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma. We also offer laser skin resurfacing treatments for facial anti-aging.
