What Procedures Does a Plastic Surgeon Perform?

Plastic surgery continues to rise around the world according to The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), which reports total procedures increased 5.4 percent last year. John Park MD Plastic Surgery specializes in breast augmentation surgery, facelifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction, which remain four of the most popular plastic surgery procedures globally. The most popular of all plastic surgeries is breast augmentation, a procedure that increased 6.1 percent in popularity since 2017. It’s also increased an incredible 27.6 percent in popularity since 2014.

Liposuction and tummy tucks are also becoming more and more popular. They’ve both increased in popularity 9 percent since last year. The US and Brazil make up 28.4 percent of all aesthetic procedures worldwide. Women remain the most common demographic to choose cosmetic procedures at 87.4 percent, making up a total of 20,330,465 procedures (surgical and non-surgical) in 2018. However, there were 2,935,909 men who chose cosmetic procedures in 2018 with more men selecting procedures every year.


One of the most popular treatments for women and men is the facelift, as both genders realize the many benefits of the procedure. Facelifts address the lower half of the face and the neck (only in rare instances is a neck lift performed as a standalone procedure). A facelift can help a person look several years younger while skyrocketing their confidence. Tightening and removing excess skin from the face and neck offers instant rejuvenation.

There are various types of facelifts today, but all guarantee small incisions with scarring artfully hidden in the hairline or in the natural creases near the ears. Looking up to a decade younger in a relatively fast procedure has been linked to improvement in virtually every facet of a person’s life from their professional and career goals to their personal relationships.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation with implants offers immediate results for women looking to enhance the shape and size of their breasts. There are various types and sizes of implants, along with different types of incisions and placements of the implants. With so many approaches and choices, it’s important to trust a certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation.

This procedure can dramatically increase a woman’s confidence with results that are beautiful and natural-looking. From achieving symmetry to increasing size or enhancing the shape of the breast, breast augmentation surgery is an affirmative, body-positive surgery that can change your life for the better.

Tummy Tucks and Mommy Makeovers

A tummy tuck permanently removes excess skin from the belly area and can be an excellent fit for both women and men. The elasticity of the tummy skin naturally allows for stretching. Losing weight doesn’t equate to losing excess skin, but a tummy tuck can give you the taut and flat belly of your dreams.

Tummy tucks are almost always part of a “mommy makeover,” which refers to a customized combination of surgeries. Breast augmentation is also regularly included in a mommy makeover, particularly for women who are finished having biological children and breastfeeding. Every mommy makeover is one of a kind and personalized just for you. It’s a set of surgeries that restores confidence and helps women reclaim their bodies postpartum to help you be the best role model you can be.

Is Plastic Surgery Right for You?

It’s no wonder that cosmetic treatments continue to rise in popularity. Today’s advanced technologies and techniques promise incredible results, and many patients are pleasantly surprised to learn how quickly they can get back to their lives after surgery. Choosing the right plastic surgeon for you is critical to a positive outcome.

A complimentary consultation gives you the opportunity to learn more about a surgeon, explore before-and-after photos, and get all of your questions answered. It’s also where you’ll find out if you “click” with the surgeon, which is an important part of the procedure since you’re trusting them with your results.
