PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Adam H. Hamawy has released a few precautionary statements to help women decide whether or not plastic surgery is for them and to what extent they should take it.
Dr. Hamawy is the chief cosmetic surgeon at Princeton Plastic Surgeons in Princeton, New Jersey. His practice offers a range of cosmetic procedures, including laser procedures, anti-aging medicine, and cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
About the latest trends in cosmetic surgery, Dr. Hamawy said, "Cosmetic surgery has never been more in-demand than it is now. Costs have stabilized and these procedures are more accessible than ever, and they're also safer than ever."
With this rise in accessibility comes a change in demographic, as well. "We see more men and younger women, even teenagers, opting for cosmetic surgery," said Dr. Hamawy.
Dr. Hamawy doesn't feel that it's business-as-usual, and he takes a careful look at each patient before proceeding with surgery. According to Dr. Hamawy, women who have high expectations can easily rush into cosmetic surgery.
"The truth is that cosmetic surgery is just a tool. It's not an answer. With cosmetic surgery, we can correct or conceal underlying issues or things that a woman doesn't like about herself, and this can indeed boost her self-image. Cosmetic surgery isn't a cure, however," said Dr. Hamawy.
Dr. Hamawy recommends that women refrain from making impulse decisions when it comes to having cosmetic surgery, allowing plenty of time to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of any procedure. He also recommends that patients ask their doctors any and all questions before an upcoming procedure and heed their physician's advice.
About Dr. Adam H. Hamawy
Dr. Adam Hamawy is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, specializing in both aesthetic and reconstructive procedures. Trained at UT Southwestern Medical and Weill Cornell School—two of the most well respected institutions for plastic surgery, Dr. Hamawy subsequently became a Lt. Colonel in the U.S. Army. A tour of duty in Iraq and several years in Tacoma, Washington at the Madigan Army Medical Center afforded him the opportunity to treat a wide variety of patients. "Few surgeons are fortunate enough to have been exposed to this depth, breadth and sheer complexity of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. I attribute my highly developed surgical skills to my Army experience." Going beyond what is expected is at the heart of Dr. Hamawy's approach. He strongly believes every patient must be considered as a person first and foremost. Only then can technical expertise be used to its greatest advantage – translating subtle nuances into a more positive self-image through cosmetic enhancement. Dr. Hamawy sees his role as being a combination of technician, artist and teacher. What separates "good" from "great" in plastic surgery? Dr. Hamawy cites his ability to communicate with patients.
