Cosmetic plastic surgery is becoming the New Year's resolution of choice for many Americans. Plastic surgery was once considered an unnecessary indulgence, practiced mainly by aging actresses desperate for the proverbial Fountain of Youth. Not anymore! 

With January 1, 2008 quickly approaching, thousands of Americans will resolve to lose weight, tone up, or enhance their look. Many will decide to get cosmetic plastic surgery to help them reach their goal of looking and feeling better about themselves. You may be one of the multitude considering liposuction or tummy tuck (for a thinner, leaner you), or breast augmentation (breast implants for women or pectoral implants for men). 

Cosmetic plastic surgery is no longer just for the rich and famous. In fact, plastic surgery can be more affordable than you think. can help you locate a board-certified surgeon, one who will give you a free initial consultation and provide attractive financing options to help you get the look you want. 

The Low-Down on Liposuction

New Year's resolutions are very often synonymous with weight loss. If you've tried over the years to trim away pounds through a better diet and a solid exercise regimen, but always had a few pockets of fat that would stubbornly remain, liposuction might be a good option for you. Liposuction generally does not require a hospital stay, and most people return to work in a few days. You still need to eat well and maintain a good exercise program, but liposuction can help you improve your silhouette. 

Breast Augmentation for Women and Men

Given the premium society generally places on an hourglass figure for women and a buff, muscular chest for men, more and more people are turning to cosmetic surgery to achieve the look they want. Plastic surgery is experiencing a boom that has fostered vast improvements in both breast augmentation for women and pectoral augmentation for men.

The Truth About Tummy Tucks

A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a cosmetic surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and tighten the abdominal muscles. This surgical procedure is more involved than liposuction, and normally leaves a long, permanent scar low on the abdomen. Tummy tucks usually produce excellent results for patients with weakened abdominal muscles or droopy, excess skin (common after pregnancy or weight loss for example). In most cases the results of tummy tuck are long lasting, especially if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.

A New Year of Possibilities

This year, why not ring out the old year and welcome in the new one with a "new you"! Cosmetic plastic surgery can help you achieve your goals, just as it has already done for millions of people. From liposuction to breast implants, tummy tucks to pectoral augmentations, cosmetic surgery can give you an affordable head start on a life-changing experience that will last a lifetime.
