Personal appearance can greatly affect how an individual feels and interacts with the world. Age, injury or disease could cause lasting problems with skin or hair. Individuals may elect to have cosmetic procedures to enhance their personal appearance and improve their self-esteem.
Surgeons may employ a variety of techniques to improve the appearance of wrinkles and scars. For example, dermabrasion is used to resurface skin, remove fine wrinkles and minimize scars. Dermaplaning is a technique that helps treat deep acne scars by removing surface layers of skin near the facial defects.
Surgical hair restoration is used to improve a thinning hairline or fill in other areas of hair loss on the scalp. The goal of the surgeon is to use tiny micro grafts to create a natural look.
Although nothing can prevent aging, modern cosmetic procedures can yield excellent results in minimizing flaws and enhancing personal appearance.
