While many of Indiana's plastic surgeons practice cosmetic plastic surgery as elective ‘vanity’ surgery, a large percentage of plastic surgeons are also involved with reconstructive plastic surgery. In areas such as Bloomington , where Indiana University and Bloomington Hospital are the main providers of healthcare for the region, you are able to see such pediatric plastic surgery procedures as cleft lip and palate reconstruction.
Body enhancement is the primary reason for cosmetic plastic surgery in most cases. Large urban cities, like Indianapolis , have numerous cosmetic surgeons who perform the familiar choices of liposuction, breast implants or breast reduction, Botox, skin abrasion, tummy tucks, eyelid and/or face lift surgery, hair transplants, cosmetic dentistry and other specialties that enhance appearance.
For some clients in fields such as marketing, public relations or any high visibility career, cosmetic surgery is a way to get ahead. They feel that the better they look, the better the opportunity for advancement. In certain cases, seeing a plastic surgeon on a regular basis, for Botox treatments or other in-office procedures is quite normal.
Indianapolis can lay claim to a vastly diverse group of plastic and cosmetic surgeons, due in main part to the fact that the city has over two million residents. A cosmopolitan place to live, Indianapolis ’ cosmetic surgery clinics and reconstructive plastic surgeons are in a large majority of medical practices.
Throughout the state, in other urban areas like Bloomington , Terra Haute, South Bend , Fort Wayne , Gary and Evansville , hospitals are proud to be able to provide whatever emergency victims of accident or burn trauma might require in the way of cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery, for any age of the victim.
