The term ‘plastic’ or ‘cosmetic surgery’ actually covers a variety of surgical and chemical procedures which alter the body’s outward appearance. Procedures are used to shape certain body parts such as the breast or nose, soften skin tone to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, and to correct problems resulting from accident or disease.
Plastic surgery procedures are generally safe and relatively painless when performed by an experienced surgeon, although each procedure is different. With all surgical procedures, there are certain degrees of risk and uncertainty. During an initial consultation, Dr. Hunsaker will discuss your procedure with you in detail, describing the REALISTIC potential outcome and the main risks involved.
Almost all of the procedures listed are performed at our facilities. Most procedures are performed using only a local anesthesia, with intravenous sedation. Certain procedures may require general anesthesia. The decision concerning the type of anesthesia to be used will be discussed with you during your initial consultation.
