Most people think of plastic surgery as cosmetic procedures for the vain and age conscious population. It is important for people to realize that plastic surgery is a medical specialty that provides significant life-changing results for multitude of situations. ASPS board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Stuart Kincaid are in an elite group of only 1900 plastic surgeons in the United States. These surgeons have an extraordinary amount of training and expertise that is specifically recognized by the American Medical Association. Plastic surgeons are included in some of the most influential and amazing surgeries performed throughout the world. These include facial transplants, as well as separation of conjoined twins, complex hand surgeries, and so many more. So, when it comes to plastic surgery for students, there are procedures that are life-changing for young people their parents should consider, especially over the summer months when they are not in school. Otoplasty which is also known as ear pinning is an excellent procedure for young children who have ears that are protruding and caused them embarrassment or shame. Dr. Stuart Kincaid explains that the procedure is rather straightforward however it should be performed by an ASPS board-certified plastic surgeon with the experience and expertise to help ensure not only optimal results but also safety. Gynecomastia or excessive male breast tissue could be present in older adolescent boys and can also cause shame and embarrassment. Dr. Stuart Kincaid explains that by removing the breast tissue as well as the underlying fat he is able to help achieve a flatter more aesthetically pleasing and toned looking chest. For the older adolescent girls who have excessive breast tissue breast reduction may be a consideration. For many girls they are unable to participate in sports and gym activities and in some cases have excess weight as a result. In some cases breast reduction may be covered under insurance but if not, parents should know that the difference it can make in a young woman’s life is priceless. Dr. Stuart Kincaid invites parents and their children to schedule a complimentary consultation to determine if plastic surgery is a viable option. Scheduling and having the surgery over the summer months is an excellent opportunity for patients to heal and be ready for school in the fall.
