We don’t think of plastic surgery or noninvasive aesthetic treatment as competitors, so one is not better than another. Both provide incredible results that help our patients achieve their goals, and each have their benefits and drawbacks. Not everyone can undergo surgery for a variety of reasons. Some patients don’t have time for long recovery times and want fast results. In truth, a lot of patients find that a mixture of cosmetic surgery and noninvasive aesthetic treatments meet their goals better than either alone.
