As more physicians become involved in this new area of Cosmetic Surgery and medicine, the public all too often becomes confused with advertisements and claims as to truths and realistic expectations in post-treatment results. In truth, medical education is a continuing responsibility. Initiated with basic residency training, proceeds with specialized fellowships, and progresses it to a Board certification process. Board certification implies that the physician has met the specific requirements of training and experience and has passed a written and oral examination on specific medical and surgical topics. This provides the cosmetic surgeon with the basic background tools, but certainly not the finished product. From there, experience, continuing workshops, meetings, seminars, visitations with authorities in the field, and even more clinical experience make up the fine tooling of a cosmetic specialist.
 
Plastic surgery is a surgical speciality concerned with the correction or restoration of form and function. Aesthetic plastic/ cosmetic surgery involves techniques intended for the "enhancement" of appearance of any body part through surgical and medical techniques, and is specifically concerned with maintaining normal appearance, restoring it, or enhancing it beyond the average level toward some aesthetic ideal.
 
A cosmetic Surgeon should therefore be a board certified plastic surgeon with adequate experience and advanced training in various Aesthetic procedures.
 
 
The most prevalent aesthetic/cosmetic procedures include:
Abdominoplasty ("tummy tuck"): reshaping and firming of the abdomen.
Blepharoplasty ("eyelid surgery"): reshaping of the eyelids or the application of permanent eyeliner, including Asian blepharoplasty.
   
Mammoplasty:
 
Breast augmentations ("breast implant" or "boob job"): augmentation of the breasts by means of fat grafting, saline, or silicone gel prosthetics, which was initially performed to women with micromastia
   
Reduction mammoplasty ("breast reduction"): removal of skin and glandular tissue, which is done to reduce back and shoulder pain in women with gigantomastia and/or for psychological benefit men with gynecomastia
   
Mastopexy ("breast lift"): Lifting or reshaping of breasts to make them less saggy, often after weight loss (after a pregnancy, for example). It involves removal of breast skin as opposed to glandular tissue
   
Buttock augmentation ("butt implant"): Enhancement of the buttocks using silicone implants or fat grafting ("Brazilian butt lift") and transfer from other areas of the body
 
   
Buttock lift: lifting, and tightening of the buttocks by excision of redundant skin
   
Chemical peel: minimizing the appearance of acne, chicken pox, and other scars as well as wrinkles (depending on concentration and type of agent used, except for deep furrows), solar lentigines (age spots, freckles), and photodamage in general. Chemical peels commonly involve carbolic acid (Phenol), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), glycolic acid (AHA), or salicylic acid (BHA) as the active agent.
