Casey is always so nice and makes me feel like I am the most important patient she has. She remembers my family and where I traveled to. I wish I could give a higher score to her and her staff. Brandi went out of her way to help me get my multiple medications covered. The freezing of my almost cancers are not fun and are painful but I would not want to have an area removed and have scars.

After 3 weeks of seeing our family doctor for a serious injury, he felt we needed to see a dermatologist. After one call, we were seen by Dr. Bergamo. Thanks!

The room I was in was very clean and well taken care of. Dr. Johnson took care of all my spots I was worried about.

The lab girl that works specifically for Dr. Johnson came in during my surgery and we had a great conversation. She explained to me what she was going to do with my tissue they cut out and was very informative. Dr. Johnson did a great job on my surgery. No scar!

The nurse who took me back was very honest and straight forward. She told exactly what I needed to do with my stitches and how to clean them. She was very informative. I enjoyed Dr. Johnson and his great proficiency.
Tips & Advices
Plastic surgery comes from the Greek word “plastikos,” which means “to mold” or “to change.” Plastic surgery is a specialty in the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It includes cosmetic or aesthetic surgery, but also includes reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and burn treatment.
The vast majority of cosmetic surgical procedures occur on an outpatient basis. With more extensive surgery, such as a tummy tuck, a previous health condition, or monitoring is needed, the doctor might require a short hospital stay.
Depending on the procedure, cosmetic surgery can cost anywhere from several -hundred dollars for facial “filler” injections to $20,000 for extensive invasive surgery. In addition to the surgeon’s fee, the patient or insurance company will be responsible for a surgical facility fee, anesthesia, medical tests, prescriptions, surgical garments, and other miscellaneous costs related to surgery.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the top five cosmetic surgical procedures in 2016 were:
  • Liposuction (414,335 procedures)
  • Breast Augmentation (310,444 procedures)
  • Tummy Tuck (181,540 procedures)
  • Eyelid Surgery (173,883 procedures)
  • Breast Lift (161,412 procedures)
Common nonsurgical cosmetic procedures include Botox injections, laser hair removal, and laser skin resurfacing.
While there is no definitive age minimum or maximum for a given procedure, most doctors won’t operate on minors for cosmetic reasons. Beyond the actual surgery, the risks of general anesthesia should be a major consideration for elderly patients.  Good doctors will advise patients against a procedure they think is unnecessary, carries unwanted risk, or won’t produce the desired outcome.
