Ask a Miami plastic surgeon: The truth about touch ups

If you're looking into plastic surgeons in Miami, it's important to find a professional who will be up front with you about your desired procedure. The primary reason for dissatisfaction with a face lift, Brazilian butt implants and other cosmetic surgeries is a lack of accurate information before going under the knife. Managing expectations is an essential part of this process, and the best plastic surgeons in Miami will be as open about the risks and limitations of a procedure as they are about its benefits. 

In the spirit of full disclosure, we'll be reviewing some common misconceptions about cosmetic surgery on this blog. Today we'll touch on one misunderstanding about the longevity of your chosen treatment. The healthy and beauty website iDiva notes that many patients may think that plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments provide permanent anti-aging results. The reality, though, is that most procedures have some form of shelf-life and may need to be retouched to maintain the same overall look.

"Cosmetic treatments done with the help of minimally invasive surgeries like fillers need to be touched up every six months to a year, and in some cases, once in two years depending upon the product used," the source states. "Plastic surgery too has to be revised and maintained once the whole face sags with age over a period of time."

Before committing to any procedure, be sure to ask your Miami plastic surgeon about its long-term effects, and what you can expect in terms of maintenance further down the line. Dr. Christopher Craft is an experienced cosmetic surgeon who will answer any questions you may have.
