Indianapolis, Indiana is a city most noted for its race track and the Indianapolis 500 race that garners international attention every year. The city has been called the Racing Capital of the World. A lesser known fact about the city is that some of the country’s most progressive cosmetic plastic surgeons work in Indianapolis.
Thanks to the races that are run at the Indiana Motor Speedway, and the numerous crashes that occur on and off the track, hospitals in the area are kept busy with reconstructive cosmetic plastic surgery. It is not uncommon for an emergency room to receive a racer who needs repair to his face from a devastating track crash. The on-staff plastic surgeons also perform a wide variety of reconstructive surgical procedures for other trauma cases, such as burn victims and for repair of birth defects.
Specialization is heavily practiced among the cosmetic surgeons in the area. Some of the clinics specialize in breast augmentation and facial procedures only. Others deal with new laser treatments for skin problems. Many utilize the new technologies including plasma skin treatments, laser epidermal treatment and laser hair removal.
Most cosmetic surgeons prefer to generalize and allow their clientele to avail themselves of a cosmetic surgery menu that might include such procedures as tummy tucks, liposuction, eyelid surgery, face lifts, weight loss surgery, breast augmentation and breast reduction, dermabrasion, rhinoplasty and a variety of other processes.
The private clinics that have sprung up around the city as well as in the suburbs are mini-medical centers or designed as spa-type centers. Both the mini-medical centers and the spa settings rely on the results produced by their plastic surgeons. The patient is the one who decides which form of surgical atmosphere suits them best.
