Detroit, Michigan – Great effort is exerted to ensure facial plastic and reconstructive treatments stand the test of time. Most of these are considered classic operations to correct deformity or facial dysfunction. In 2010 however, patients are offered myriad treatments for a cosmetic concern each with great promises.
In radio, print and web media, patients are bombarded with ads promoting a new technological advance in facial plastic surgery. Unfortunately, many of these new innovations prove to be fads which do not live up to their grand promises.
The consumer should be aware that not all they see or hear regarding new advances in facial plastic surgery works as well purported. Corporations usually invest considerable financial sums and effort into creating new cosmetic products for the market. Becuase of this investment, corporations must advertise heavily and sometimes stretch the truth as to how much their product will help the patient.
It is suggested that pateints thoroughly investigate any potential treatment they are considering. Getting objective counseling is critically important to make an informed decision. For cosmetic treatments of the face, we advise the patient to discuss their situation with a knowledgable facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon before they commit to any treatment.
