Great article. Though in 2008, Breast Augmentation is the top among the list of numbers of procedures done in the US. But with the increasing patients who go abroad for plastic surgery, it might show a only a fraction of the total percentage of people who have undergone plastic surgery.

With the difference in price, more people would be traveling abroad for plastic surgery especially in this economic lowdown. Check out the prices of plastic surgery in Mexico for example - http://www.myplasticsurgeryinmexico.com/mexic... That would show how affordable plastic surgery in Mexico is compared to the US but with the same quality of procedure.

Cosmetic surgery is the process that doesn’t just help you enhance your look but also assists you in getting rid of those scars and cuts. You can always help yourself to remove birth skin defects. There is the common misconception that only women go for cosmetic surgery in Miami but the tendency is wrong after seeing a 50% rise of men who utilize cosmetic surgery.

Cosmetic surgery in Miami has been on the rise and it's important to know who to go to that can offer great services. This kind of surgery should not be taken for granted. The surgery should be put in the hands of double board certified members who are knowledgeable and sincere in their dealings. There are several types of cosmetic surgery available, but there are several reasons why people need cosmetic surgery done.

Today, plastic surgery is not restricted to women alone. Many men are now choosing this option to enhance their looks, improve their self-esteem and to provide them with that extra element they need to enhance the lives.

Macrolane is a very expensive product and not long lasting. You have to redo injection every 5 months and the average cost is of $1,500..No sense!
If you wanna have an affordable surgery just go outside the US, and you will have a breast implant for $3,500 or maybe less.
I had a my breast implants done at MakeoverTravel center in south america and it costed me $2,800. I am very happy with my outcomes (i also had a TT, and full lipo) but the cost of B.A at M.T center is of $2,800, so it's very cheap,, and the result is permanent.

Cosmetic surgery is a unique discipline of medicine focused on enhancing appearance through surgical and medical techniques. Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck and body. Because treated areas function properly but lack aesthetic appeal, cosmetic surgery is elective.

Plastic surgery is defined as a surgical specialty dedicated to reconstruction of facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease. Plastic surgery is intended to correct dysfunctional areas of the body and is reconstructive in nature.

Take a look at Dr. Michael Kreidstein website, you will get many more information from the site.
