Cosmetic Dermatology or Plastic Surgery?

Question Marks Over Man Showing Confusion And UncertaintyWhat makes poor skin conditions undesirable is that they are not only things that will affect your physical health, but also your quality of living. People who suffer from these skin conditions have to bear with the physical manifestations of these ailments, which become very obvious when seen in the face. Moreover, they may also suffer from mental anguish like a decrease in self confidence, a general dislike of one’s physical appearance, and even discrimination and loss of opportunities.

This is why dermatological solutions are very much in demand.  Some resort to something as drastic as plastic surgery, thinking that only through going ‘under the knife’ can they get rid of whatever skin issues they may have. On the other hand, there are those who are more concerned with improving their appearance without the urgency of risky procedures like surgery. Thus, they opt to take advantage of the expertise of a Beverly Hills cosmetic dermatologist for non surgery procedures.

The aim of plastic surgery is to repair or reconstruct abnormal appearances of the body that may have been caused by trauma, a disease, an accident, or an infection. Plastic surgical procedures are considered more drastic and risky, and only qualified surgeons should perform them.

On the other hand, cosmetic dermatology is best performed by a board certified dermatologist and has vast experience with various treatments. Moreover, these procedures are conducted to enhance a patient’s appearance and bring it to ideal or aesthetically pleasing results.

But whether a patient wants to take advantage of cosmetic dermatological or plastic surgery services, the qualifications of the medical professional to conduct it should be heavily considered. Thousands of patients all over the world have complained of botched jobs that worsened their appearance because they did not consider their doctor’s qualifications.
