Plastic surgery has become very popular in Oklahoma City in recent years as the surgical techniques and technology have provided for greater beauty enhancement, safer surgery and more rapid recovery times. The most popular cosmetic surgery procedures are rhinoplasty, liposuction and breast augmentation surgery. Body contouring procedures, such as tummy tuck and body lift, are also quite popular. Tummy tuck is widely performed for women who have completed child bearing and would like to regain that pre-pregnancy body contour. Body lift is often performed for patients who have undergone weight loss surgery and have lost a considerable amount of weight. Weight loss surgery is not offered by plastic surgeons, but is typically performed by bariatric surgeons who have experience with minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery techniques. Gastric bypass surgery and Lap Band are two common forms of weight loss surgery.
Plastic surgery is often desired by Oklahoma City breast augmentation patients who want more shapely figures and larger bustlines. During this procedure, silicone or saline breast implants are placed under the breast tissue. These implants can also be used for breast reconstruction to help patients who have lost breast tissue due to cancer. It is best to consult a OKC board-certified plastic surgeon if you are interested in breast surgery. He or she can discuss the various types of surgery, help determine if you are a candidate and describe the cost and the recovery time of surgery. He or she can also provide before and after photos of previous patients to help you visualize the potential results from surgery. In addition to breast surgery, plastic surgeons also typically offer procedures to rejuvenate the face, such as for those patients who seek a facelift in Oklahoma City.
With its many highly qualified plastic surgeons, it is not unusual for patients to visit OKC to have surgery and then stay to enjoy the local area during recovery. Oklahoma City is the largest city in Oklahoma and 31st largest in the country. The city was a crossroads for the oil industry and the old west, and has a rich legacy that is chronicled in museums and exhibits related to the history of the city. For those visiting the city, the Visitors Bureau provides information about attractions, hotels, meetings and local history.
