4 Things to Consider When Researching a Plastic Surgeon 

In November, I wrote about what is involved in a “Mommy Makeover” and who the ideal candidate is for this increasingly popular procedure.  But doing your research, and finding the right plastic surgeon, is equally important to ensure the best possible results. Below is a list of recommendations I have compiled for you to consider as you research your options:Find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

Do you wish you had a zipper on the back of your neck to tighten it?

Have you ever been caught pinching the skin at the sides of your neck or at the back of the neck and say, "if I could just pinch like this my neck and jowls would disappear and I would look younger”.  If only it was that simple.  The skin on the neck gradually looses its elasticity and collagen as we age and we end up with hanging and sagging skin that is unattractive.What can we do to tighten it?Facial exercises?  Not really.  Facials, creams, peels, botox and fillers?  Well, they can help but likely won't achieve the results you are looking to gain.  This is why the beauty industry is a 6 billion dollar market.  So what should you use?  There is no one answer...
