Newport Beach, CA – Although numerous plastic surgery procedures have withstood the test of time, several instantly popular treatments may only trend as fads. Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Semira Bayati says she waits at least a year to determine whether or not a procedure has longevity in the field of plastic surgery before introducing it to her practice as a cosmetic surgery option. She says she often sees women fall victim to the popularity of treatments turning out to be short-lived fads. As a female plastic surgeon, she adds that she sympathizes with their pursuit of beauty and is determined to not let her patients suffer from the fate of an ill-advised procedure. Dr. Bayati says she feels it is her duty to observe and consider every surgery’s side effects and end results to make certain each procedure she offers is the safest and most effective.
Dr. Bayati’s Newport Beach plastic surgery practice offers a comprehensive span of cosmetic treatments and procedures ranging from breast augmentation and liposuction, to rhinoplasty and BOTOX® Cosmetic. At her office, she and her highly trained staff use the latest, most advanced plastic surgery techniques, and focus on enhancing every patient’s experience and results. Dr. Bayati says numerous patients enter her practice asking for newly popular treatments, and although she may have the capability to perform a certain procedure, she says she uses her judgement to determine what is right for each individual rather than obliging to every request. She adds that many of the odd requests often relate to fad procedures she refuses to offer because of either safety reasons or lack of observation time and research data.
New procedural fads like fat-grafting to fill wrinkles, augment facial structure, and enhance lips among other areas have been been known to trend heavily among women. Dr. Bayati says while facial fat-grafting can achieve decent rejuvenation effects when performed properly, the overall look often pales in comparison to the end results and longevity of a traditional facelift. She adds that cutting corners in the beginning can lead to more expenses and a greater toll on the body in the end. Dr. Bayati also says patients are often fooled by fads such as the “lunchtime facelift” and adding fillers to the balls of the feet because surgeons can fail to comprehensively brief individuals on every procedural detail. She says many patients are not informed that “lunchtime facelift” results are generously estimated to only last one year, and fat grafts and fillers will eventually absorb under pressure in the balls of the feet.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Bayati says she believes in disclosing every bit of information regarding whatever procedure one may desire, and she feels patients should accept nothing less. She adds that although patients may be interested in a particular procedural fad, she will work with them to help decide what will ultimately be in their best interest. From injectable fillers to a complete mommy makeover, Dr. Bayati says she urges all patients to consult with a board-certified surgeon to ensure ethical treatment and the most effective results.
