- Am I a good candidate for a facial cosmetic procedure?
If you are are dissatisfied with your appearance or concerned with the aging changes of your face you may be a good candidate for a cosmetic procedure. However, the only way to find out for sure is to speak to the doctor who specializes in facial plastic surgery. At his Manhattan, NYC, practice, Dr. Konstantin performs comprehensive consultations to help women and men understand their procedure options, both surgical and non-surgical.
- What is it the best age to get a cosmetic procedure?
People of all ages can benefit from surgical or non-surgical procedures that improve their appearance. For example, in our practice, the patients range in age from early 20s to late 80s. Patients of all ages can be very happy with their results as long as the surgery meets their aesthetic goals.
- What doctor is most qualified to perform facial cosmetic procedures?
We recommend that you use the same stringent selection criteria hospitals use when they are qualifying doctors. To perform cosmetic surgery, most hospitals would require doctors to be certified by either the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery or the American Board of Plastic Surgery. We strongly encourage you to check the respective websites to verify your doctor’s credentials.
- Would my health insurance pay for a cosmetic procedures?
Unfortunatley, most health insurances do not cover cosmetic procedures. However, we do perform some procedures that are medically necessary and you may be reimbursed by your insurance afterwards. Please ask the doctor about your specific procedure.
- Is it possible to achieve natural-looking results from a cosmetic procedure?
Unnatural results are often the doing of a “one-size-fits-all” approach. In our practice, Dr. Konstantin uses a targeted approach, based on the individual features of our patients and their unique aesthetic needs. This approach allows for a balanced and natural improvement of individual facial aesthetics.
- If I am not ready to get surgery yet, what other options do I have?
As a double board-certified specialist in facial rejuvenation, Dr. Konstantin offers a host of cosmetic procedures that do not involve surgery. You can achieve a vibrant and youthful look by smoothing out the wrinkles, filling in deep folds, and improving the texture of the skin.
- What is the best way to find out what kind of results I may expect after getting a cosmetic procedure?
To get a better idea, you should review before-and-after pictures. Doctors often post these pictures on their websites or offer them for review in the office. Look for a before-and-after picture of a pateint with a similar facial type. Of course, there is no guarantee that you will get exactly the same result; however, that will give you a good idea of what can be achieved with a cosmetic facial procedure.
