Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon? Who exactly is to blame for the “overdone” look?

Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon?

Why is it that almost everyone is okay with going to the dermatologist — there are even celebrity “derms” that people clamor for! — but many are self-conscious about seeing a plastic surgeon? Perhaps this is because the media portrays dermatologists as miracle workers who “fix” all sorts of skin and cosmetic issues! Magazine editors and celebrities note that it has become de rigeur to have a dermatologist on speed dial — especially once you’ve hit 30!  On the other hand, the media portrays plastic surgeons as the ones to avoid.  After all, it’s the plastic surgeons who provide unnatural and sometimes even downright scary results, right?

Well, let’s examine this media myth a bit more closely!  Wherein lies the truth?  Who is it that is making the majority of the overly-plumped cheeks, the bobble-head faces, and the frozen, over-Botox-ed foreheads?  Well, it stands to reason that if most people see dermatologists for fillers and injectables, these unnatural and overdone results are mainly coming from dermatologists, based purely on statistics!

If you are contemplating an anti-aging procedure, trust your face to a facial plastic surgeon who employs an integrative approach to providing natural results using a combination of non-surgical and surgical treatments.   Long gone are the over-pulled, windswept facelifts of yesteryear.  Dare to discover the subtle and meaningful results of a stepwise and combined approach!
