Not happy with your body?
Is plastic surgery an option?
Many people may be unhappy with some aspect of their body for a variety of reasons. In fact, no one has a totally perfect body, and everyone can point out something that bothers them. But, how do you know if plastic surgery could be the right solution for you? While plastic surgery can address many problems, it cannot solve every concern you may have regarding your body’s appearance or function. Some concerns are better addressed in different ways, and sadly, some problems cannot be very well treated by any means. But, if you feel plastic surgery may be right for you, how do you pick the best plastic surgeon?

While most elite academic surgeons of his rank and status rarely if ever see patients, Dr Dufresne enjoys giving each patient his undivided personal attention and offering them a broad variety of plastic surgery options appropriate to their individual needs and preferences.
If you are feeling like you look tired, older than you feel, or are bothered by your appearance in some way, aesthetic surgery (cosmetic surgery) can potentially help you achieve a new, natural look that is in harmony with how you feel about yourself. While facelifts, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, and liposuction have all been popular procedures for many years, potential patients now have the benefit of newer techniques, technologies, and procedures that in the experienced, caring, and capable hands of Dr Dufresne can provide better results than ever, often with shorter recovery periods than in the past. Many cosmetic surgeries can even be done as outpatient procedures without general anesthesia.
If you have experienced an accident that left visible or functional injuries, a cancer surgery that left you feeling mutilated, or been born with a cleft lip or other birth defect, you are not alone! Millions of people worldwide and in the US suffer from disfigurement and functional problems that can be helped by reconstructive surgery. Reconstructive surgery is the area of plastic surgery concerned with creating a more normal appearance; whereas, aesthetic surgery is concerned with reducing signs of aging or enhancing a normal body. Reconstructive surgery is done for two major reasons: correction of birth defects or repair following burns and trauma. Trauma can mean many things, including reconstruction following cancer surgery, most commonly breast cancer. Surgical treatment of skin cancer is also included under reconstructive surgery. Innovative techniques and procedures, many developed or pioneered by Dr Dufresne, offer hope to many potential patients for whom little could have been done in even the recent past.
Is your face or hands showing signs of aging that don’t match how you feel on the inside? Are you ready for a refreshed look but maybe not ready to consider surgery?
