Who needs cosmetic plastic surgery, how safe is it and what are the things to consider before going into plastic surgery? Dr. Carlos Chacon, Medical Director at Divino Plastic Surgery shares more insights with us in this interview with TechBullion.
Please tell us your name, about yourself and your journey so far as a Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon?
My name is Dr. Carlos Chacon, and I am a cosmetic plastic surgeon and Medical Director at Divino Plastic Surgery in Bonita, California. I have over ten years of experience performing a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures, as well as helping patients from throughout the region and nationally achieve their personal goals.
I received my undergraduate and MD education at the University of Arizona. I also received extensive training in surgical techniques and procedures at the esteemed UCSF Medical Center at the University of California San Francisco Division of Plastic Surgery. It is this exceptional training that has informed and inspired my career from the start.
I come from a long line of highly skilled artists and craftsmen, and I always knew I would one day be working with these same attributes and hands. In that regard, plastic surgery offers such a powerful opportunity, allowing me to tap into that lineage and utilize a very distinctive skillset to make a positive difference in people’s lives. It is both a fascinating and intricate surgical subspecialty and provides a degree of artistic latitude and a sense of accomplishment that is very rewarding.
What is Divino Plastic Surgery and what solutions do you provide?
Divino Plastic Surgery is a cosmetic plastic surgery practice and a top resource of many of the best and latest plastic surgery procedures and techniques. Our experienced, highly-trained staff provide patient-focused cosmetic services and work toward delivering the best care and most rewarding experience in the field.
We are committed to providing the highest quality outcomes for every patient. To that end, we offer a comprehensive suite of cosmetic procedures and techniques to help every patient look and feel their best while achieving their personal goals. These procedures include a number of techniques for the face (facelifts, nose reshaping, eyelid lifts, lip augmentation), breast (breast enlargements, lifts, reductions) and body (contouring, tummy tucks, mommy makeovers, arm lifts, thigh lifts), as well as such advanced facial contouring and skin care techniques (Botox, fillers, peels) and more.
Could you give us an overview of the specific cosmetic plastic surgeries you provide at Divino and the procedures involved?
As mentioned in the previous response, we offer a wide range of specific cosmetic procedures to meet patient needs and goals. These include anything from whole body contouring, revision surgery, and breast enhancements to facelifts, nose reshaping or rhinoplasty, eyelid lifts, liposuction, butt reshaping and reductions, and much more.
Our goal is to work closely with each individual patient to determine the methods or techniques best suited to their objectives. We take pride in listening carefully to each patient and providing options that deliver the best outcomes possible.
Cosmetic plastic surgery has become one of the most rewarding sectors of the health industry. How big is this market and what is the level of demand?
The numbers of course fluctuate from year to year especially with the pandemic, but the global cosmetic surgery market is enormous and of course competitive. It’s also primed for continued growth, success, and medical advancements for years to come. There are many surgeons in the field, and there continues to be extraordinary demand out there for increasingly minimally invasive techniques that help instill and improve self-confidence and esteem.
Our aim is not only to help meet that demand, but also to provide a next-level resource of expert cosmetic surgery and techniques for patients here in San Diego and beyond.
Who needs cosmetic plastic surgery, for what reasons would one need cosmetic surgery and what are the advantages both on the health and psychology of a person?
Cosmetic plastic surgery is for anyone seeking an effective and proven method for attaining the attractiveness and confidence they’ve been searching for as safely as possible. Though it may not be for everyone, cosmetic surgical procedures can provide an effective pathway toward obtaining a renewed sense of beauty and confidence, reversing the signs of aging, or achieving the ideal shape they’ve always dreamt of.
The right cosmetic procedure can go a long way toward restoring self-confidence and achieving a renewed sense of elegance, beauty and well-being.
What are your views on invasive and non-invasive plastic surgery procedures, which of your services are non-invasive?
We strive to use only the latest, most advanced techniques and technology available to ensure each procedure is as minimally invasive as possible when desired. That said, we also offer a number of non-surgical procedures proven to achieve remarkable results.
What measures do you have in place for safety, comfort, privacy and patient satisfaction?
My team takes the utmost care to ensure each patient has the most rewarding experience possible. To start, we go to great lengths to inform each patient about the benefits and potential risks of each procedure, and to identify the techniques and methods that best align with each individual’s unique health and goals. We also work closely with patients to prepare them for each procedure, explain what is involved, and deliver a patient-centered environment where their care is always our number one focus.
In addition to engaging in clear, effective communication throughout the patient process, we also work tirelessly to provide the safest and most innovative cosmetic solutions available–those that not only address patient concerns and maximize safety, but also enable the best outcomes possible. We are also proactive about staying updated on the latest in the field, patient needs, and advances in equipment and technology.
