By the fact that you are visiting this website and considering cosmetic surgery, you already place value on your appearance. But have you stopped long enough to wonder why looking your best is so important that you are considering surgery to accomplish that goal? In reality, you already know why.
It starts in childhood. At a very early age we are taught to improve or enhance our appearance. Children play dress-up, applying Mom's makeup or wearing Dad's coat and tie. As adults we use jewelry, cosmetics, perfume, clothing, and hairstyle to create a positive body image. Plastic surgery is merely an extension of these widely accepted tools.
Dunagan, Yates & Alison Plastic Surgery Center specializes in improving appearance through surgery. We've experienced many cases where the physical alterations were actually quite minor, but the psychological benefits were immeasurable. Not so long ago, only the rich and famous had access to skilled plastic surgeons. Most people considered plastic surgery a mysterious and desperate course of action. But today, effective plastic surgery is available to practically everyone. More people than ever before are turning to cosmetic surgery and for a wider range of reasons.
Our philosophy on surgically altering your appearance is this: If you desire a procedure and it is medically safe and feasible, then consider it as one of many alternatives you have at your disposal. Because all forms of surgery involve a degree of risk, only you can decide if the potential benefits outweigh the possible risks.
