Lea Woodford is the publisher of SmartFem Magazine for Women. Lea is committed to promoting and endorsing local businesses and leaders who excel and stand out in the community. Dr Richard “Rick” Brown consistently proves to be one such local business leader and SmartFem is proud to support and recommend him as an expert in plastic surgery.
The decision to have plastic surgery is often a very difficult and personal choice. Even more difficult is choosing the right plastic surgeon. SmartFem has worked with Dr. Richard Brown as he educates consumers about the truth of plastic surgery and contributes his time to the community. Dr. Brown has been featured as the dancing celebrity plastic surgeon in Dance for Dental, a charity event to raise money for children and has been very active in raising money for breast cancer awareness by creating a team for the Empower One Breast Cancer Awareness Walk/Run.
As a board certified plastic surgeon with a genuine commitment to helping others and educating consumers, Dr. Rick is a perfect fit for SmartFem magazine and our commitment to working with the best in their field. Lea asked Dr. Rick the important questions that you need to know to not only make the right choices in selecting your surgeon but understanding what options are available, how much plastic surgery you need and how to care for yourself and get the best long term results. Sometimes when it comes to plastic surgery, “less is more.”
Knowing the difference between Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery is one of the most misunderstood problems consumers face. Understanding the difference between a Plastic Surgeon and Cosmetic Surgeon can mean the difference between a fully qualified Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and someone who may have only completed a weekend course in a specific cosmetic procedure. Local regulations are not always clear for the consumer and knowing you are working with a fully qualified and experienced professional is extremely important.
The news media is full of stories about Hollywood stars and plastic surgery gone bad. Dr. Rick explains why this phenomenon can happen and what you can do to make sure you have the right amount of surgery and the correct procedure for you. It’s very important to develop a relationship with your surgeon and to listen to advice on what procedures would be best for you as an individual.
Sometimes we are bombarded with ads promising new and unique procedures for a fast facelift or other cosmetic surgery. Dr. Rick advises us to use caution when shopping around and that when it comes to your face, there really are no shortcuts and that it’s not about how fast a procedure is but how well it’s done and how long the facelift will last. Good skincare makes a world of difference for enhancing the longevity of a facelift. There are a lot of exciting new trends and advancements in plastic surgery and Dr. Rick discusses some of those new procedures in this interview.
