Plastic Surgery Questions and Answers

Posted Dec 8, 2004 by Stephen Greenberg, MD

Answers to your most frequently asked cosmetic surgery questions

Nearly 8.5 million Americans underwent cosmetic procedures to improve their appearance last year. If you are one of the many individuals considering a cosmetic change, you probably share similar questions as those I recently received from my readers:

Q: Dear Dr. Greenberg: My teen-age daughter is extremely self-conscious about her nose. At what age can she consider a nose job? Stacey, Woodbury

The "New Age" of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

The "New Age" of Cosmetic Surgery


In the not too distant past, cosmetic surgery was thought to be mostly for people in their mid-50's. As our societal views change, and cosmetic procedures are more available, many new and younger age groups are undergoing cosmetic procedures.

Patients from ages 18 years and up are frequently undergoing breast augmentation and liposuction procedures; in addition to ear surgery, breast reduction and nasal surgery. We all remember when high school students returned from their school breaks with new noses. These procedures have expanded to include many other cosmetic surgeries and to many other age groups. For instance, college students are often having liposuction, breast augmentation and other procedures during their school breaks. School teachers also avail themselves of procedures during these vacations. Overall, every age group is now having age-appropriate procedures at an increasing rate.

Summer's Hottest Cosmetic Surgeries


Woodbury, NY, June 2004 The weather is warming up, the beaches are open, the barbecues are smoking and that traditionally means one thing summer is on the way. A new summer trend is the increased demand in plastic surgery. People are looking to get fit quick through a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures that leave patients looking and feeling better than ever, and with a renewed confidence in their appearance.

Liposuction and breast augmentation are the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures this time of year, according to Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg, a NYC and Woodbury, L.I.-based plastic surgeon. People dress more casually as they attend outdoor festivities as well as beaches and pools. Also, many companies institute a "summer dress" code (allowing more casual dress in the office).

"There is no question that during the warmer months of the year we see an incredible demand for cosmetic s
