The media is full of both women and men with unachievable beauty. According to Dr. Rosen, plastic surgeons regularly consult with patients who have unrealistic expectations of what can be done with plastic surgery. Other potential patients want to make changes that they’ll regret in the long run. He believes that it is the plastic surgeon’s job to help patients make the right choices when considering surgery.

Patients should consider nonsurgical methods first. Having surgery is a major step. Dr. Rosen recommends researching all options. If nonsurgical methods don’t work, then pursue surgical methods.
