doctor-choice-award-herve-gentile-2015-2016In a recent Consumer Study women in the USA, between the ages of 21-60, were surveyed on their perceptions of various cosmetic medicine procedures. In an apparent reaction to the unregulated medical spa industry, almost 80% of women surveyed rated medical credentials as very important when choosing a cosmetic treatment provider. The explosion of the internet coupled with the advent of social networks and the numerous credible and non-credible available resources have all resulted unfortunately in a confused consumer patient. So it is up to you to distinguish between a plastic surgeon and others and research the values each one delivers.

The plastic surgery procedures described can improve your looks and make you feel good. They can help you look as young as you feel, provided that you are doing it for yourself and for the right reasons and that you have the right motivation and realistic expectations. Although cosmetic plastic surgery can have a positive impact on your life it is not a guarantee for happiness.

The ideal result is TO LOOK GOOD, which is a natural, healthy and beautiful look, not a “plastic” look.
