What to Expect Going into Your Cosmetic Surgery Procedure

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, June 02, 2015

Every cosmetic surgery procedure requires consulting a surgeon to discuss the process.  During the consultation, you may be asked to take certain medications, get lab tests, avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs, and to stop smoking. It is recommended that someone drive you to and from the surgery and stays with you the first night.  Orlando cosmetic surgery can be performed in a hospital, accredited surgical facility, or a surgical center. If you are having a surgery performed for non-cosmetic reasons, such as a deviated septum, it is possible to have it covered by health insurance.


On the day of your procedure, you will start out by being put under anesthesia. Your surgeon will recommend either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation depending on the procedure and other factors. For example, rhinoplasty can either be an open or closed procedure, and that determines on where the cosmetic surgeon will be making the incision. They will then either reshape the nose or correct the deviated septum depending on what needs to be done and the desired results you're looking for. Once that is complete, they will then close the incision.  Splints and gauze will be used to wrap the nose up, and those will have to stay in for a few days to assist the healing process.


The healing process is crucial when it comes to rhinoplasty or any cosmetic surgery for that matter. Swelling will go down after a few weeks, but it is possible for it to take a year for the nose to fully shape properly. It is common to see changes in the appearance of your nose throughout that first year. A surgeon will give specific instructions to each patient depending on the surgery and how well you're healing. In the end, the results will be outstanding and you will have the self-confidence that you've been longing for!

Plastic Surgery was Once Considered Taboo, but Not Anymore!

Dr Richard Arabitg - Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Although once considered taboo, cosmetic surgery has grown to be one of the most accepted, common, and popular ways of improving physical appearance. The media is constantly bombarded with talks of rhinoplasty, tummy tucks, breast augmentations, facelifts, Botox, and more. In the past, Orlando cosmetic surgery was a privilege considered only for the rich and famous. It was seen as quite controversial and ostentatious, and wasn’t pursued by people outside of the entertainment industry. However, this is no longer the case. Aside from growing in popularity, cosmetic procedures have also become more affordable and accessible. Although cosmetic procedures are not generally covered by insurance, many plastic surgery centers offer affordable payment plans or financial assistance. Cosmetic surgery can be performed in a medical center or private office location, with the number of locations that offer procedures growing every day. However, the increase in number of cosmetic surgery centers may allow customers to become confused or easily manipulated. It is extremely important to go to a knowledgeable, experienced cosmetic surgeon for all procedures.

There Has Been a 37% Increase in Breast Augmentations in the Last 10 Years

Dr Richard Arabitg - Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Breast augmentation is an Orlando cosmetic surgery involving enlargement and shaping of the breasts, through insertion of saline solution or silicone gel implants. At Plastic Surgery Central Florida, we know that women may decide to undergo a breast augmentation procedure for many reasons, but the result is always a remarkable improvement in self-confidence and self-esteem. Studies indicate that after an augmentation, women report enhancements in physical health, appearance, social life, and sexual function. Additionally, they reported lasting happiness with their breast implants. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery today. With over 290,000 women receiving implants per year, there has been a 37% increase in the last ten years.

The most frequent grounds for pursuing augmentation are for aesthetic reasons, reconstruction, or revision of previous cosmetic surgeries. When breast augmentations are pursued for reconstructive purposes, they are highly effective for correcting abnormalities, as a result of trauma, disease, or genetics. Implants can even improve one’s appearance after injuries, and surgeries such as mastectomies. When pursued for aesthetic or revision purposes, breast augmentations can be the best way to improve self-confidence and satisfaction with one’s body. After an unsatisfactory cosmetic or reconstructive procedure, breast augmentation can fix any previously unsatisfactory results. Aesthetically, breast augmentation results in dramatically improved feelings of satisfaction with one’s appearance and body.
