If you’re considering Cosmetic Surgery in Scottsdale

Procedures for the body range from major to minor surgery. You can click the links above to learn more about each specific cosmetic surgery. If you’re considering getting plastic surgery, this will give you a basic understanding of the procedure-when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect. It can’t answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon. Please ask Dr. Beals, esteemed plastic surgeon in Paradise Valley, about anything you don’t understand. Our staff would also be happy to help you with any questions or concerns.

Where Your Surgery Will Be Performed

Your operation may take place in an office-based facility, a freestanding surgical center or a hospital outpatient facility. Sometimes Dr. Beals may require that you stay overnight in the Paradise Valley Overnight Recovery Center  for patients to have round-the-clock care post-operatively in a comfortable setting next to the Surgical Center.

A plastic surgeon can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with Dr. Beals.

All Surgery Carries Some Uncertainty And Risk

There are always risks associated with surgery and specific complications associated with each procedure.

There are always risks associated with surgery and specific complications associated with each procedure.

 

Post-operative complications such as infection and blood clots are rare, but can occur. Infection can be treated with drainage and antibiotics, but will prolong your stay. You can minimize the risk of blood clots by moving around as soon after the surgery as possible.

 

Poor healing, which results in conspicuous scars, may necessitate a second operation. Smokers should be advised to stop, as smoking may increase the risk of complications and delay healing.

You can reduce your risk of complications by closely following Dr. Beals’ instructions before and after the surgery, especially with regard to when and how you should resume physical activity.
