Myth: It is disrespectful to ask your facial plastic surgeon tough questions.
Dr. Ross Clevens recently returned from Telluride, Colorado where he was invited to deliver three lectures to a meeting of his peers. Dr. Clevens presented his experience with Sculptra in Facial Rejuvenation and another lecture on Facelift and Facial Cosmetic Surgery in the Male Patient. Drawing from his extensive experience in facelift surgery, Dr. Clevens also advised his peers how to avoid complications in facelift surgery in another session. The Telluride meeting is an annual teaching conference sponsored by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. This series of teaching lectures was attended by 150 plastic, facial plastic and cosmetic surgeons from throughout the United States and Canada. Dr. Clevens was invited to attend the "Winter Meeting' of the AAFPRS in 2008 as well.
Patients are opting for less radical cosmetic treatments in order to reduce the time taken off work to recover due to fear of losing their jobs.

Money is tight, but that's not stopping patients from visiting cosmetic surgeons to get some tightening of their own. Most cosmetic surgeries run in the thousands of dollars. A face lift is about $10,000 these days, but cosmetic surgery has always been based on psychological wishes and the need to look better and feel better. In a tough economy, it is important to look your best in the increasingly competitive workplace environment. It's not something people need, so those who get surgeries are people who have that extra money to spend. Perhaps during down times, cosmetic surgery enables patients to focus upon themselves and feel better about themselves.
