    What to Expect from a Plastic Surgery Procedure

    Depending on the type of plastic surgery a patient chooses, the associated technique varies greatly. However, there are some general things to consider before going in for an operation. For instance, before treatment, it is important for a new patient to discuss their health history, the details of the surgery, and the estimate for how much it will cost.

    Then, during a plastic surgery session, our anesthesiologists will administer general anesthesia or intravenous (IV) sedation, if necessary. Anesthesia or sedation helps keep patients comfortable and pain-free during the procedure.

    Finally, after the surgery is complete, our team will provide instructions for post-operative care and information about any relevant antibiotics. Most patients require a follow-up visit in the following weeks, and recovery time varies depending on the person and the procedure. In general, most operations require around six to 12 weeks of recovery.

    If a prospective patient has concerns about how plastic surgery procedures are performed, our diligent team in Alexandria and Northern Virginia will answer questions and help someone know what to expect from their scheduled operation.

    Examples of Plastic Surgery Procedures

    While some forms of plastic surgery are considered medically necessary, such as operations following trauma or cancer, most other procedures are elective and aesthetic. Common examples of cosmetic surgeries include but are not limited to:

    • Breast surgery – our set of surgical procedures can change the size or shape of the breasts using implants, lifting, or other techniques.
    • Body contouring – our practice uses tummy tucks, fat transfers, liposuction, thigh lifts, and more to enhance the appearance and shape of many different regions.
    • Facial surgery – our team implements eyelifts, facelifts, fat transfers, lip enhancements, or a few other procedures to rejuvenate and refresh the face.
    • Non-surgical – we offer a suite of minimally invasive treatments that correct a wide range of cosmetic issues, including Botox, Dermal Fillers, ThermiSmooth, Kybella, and more. 

    These are not the only plastic surgery procedures that our practice offers, and our knowledgeable team members in Northern Virginia and Alexandria will elaborate during an initial consultation.


    Breast Augmentation

    Many women find that they are no longer happy with the size or shape of their breasts, which is why breast surgery continues to be such a popular plastic surgery procedure. Whether you’re seeking breast surgery for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes, Dr. Desman would be happy to customize a treatment plan for you.

    If you’re battling genetics or simply aging, Dr. Desman understands that cosmetic concerns on the body can be a significant source of distress for patients. Fortunately, a tummy tuck can give you a beautifully sculpted appearance.

    Traditionally, most plastic surgery procedures have been sought by women, but more and more men are discovering the benefits of cosmetic enhancements. Male-specific plastic surgery makes up an important component of Dr. Desman’s practice, including procedures that treat gynecomastia, in addition to facial rejuvenation and male body contouring.
