Cosmetic Surgery in Utah: The Basics

So you’re thinking about cosmetic surgery, but you have some questions such as:

How does cosmetic surgery work?
What do I need to consider beforehand?
What are the risks?
What should I ask my doctor?

Considering cosmetic surgery can be confusing at times, but we can clear the air for you with our hands-on experience and expert information. This post will cover some basics on cosmetic surgery, and discuss what you should look for before you embark on your cosmetic surgery journey.





At Revivology we perform an advanced technique facelift by lifting the mid face and cheeks, softening nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and significantly reducing jowls. We are also able to smooth and lift the aging neck using a unique method developed by Dr. Kelly.


An additional cause of jowling and contour irregularities of the face is a receded chin. With the careful placement of an anatomically correct chin implant, your facial symmetry can be corrected.


Some women are born with excess length or bulk to the labia minora. Not only can this be embarrassing, it can also be painful with certain activities like riding a bike, horseback riding or intercourse. It may increase the risk of bladder and yeast infections and can be uncomfortable to wear certain clothing items. Childbirth can also create or enhance this condition. This can be easily corrected while maintaining or improving normal sensation.


This latest technological advancement in cosmetic surgery improves the tone, texture, and tightness of your skin. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles and can even reduce age spots! It is a perfect companion to our facelift and eyelid procedures for a polished finishing touch.


A small incision below the bikini line allows removal of unwanted excess skin and fat. Then gentle tightening of the lower abdominal muscles to provide a smoother, flatter lower abdomen.


Sometimes eyebrows drop making us look angry, tired or sad. Elevating them back to their normal position can open your eyes and re-create an elegant gentle arch.


Once the lower and upper eyelid weakens, we begin to see excess fat protrude creating bags under our eyes. Often this is accompanied by crepe-paper like skin. We have multiple techniques to smooth the skin and rejuvenate the lower and upper eyelid.


Almost everyone has stubborn areas of unwanted pockets of fat they would like sculpted down. Others may have larger areas for volume reduction like tummies, love handles and “saddlebags”. We use the same safe technique to artistically contour these.


We offer different methods of breast augmentation.   Not only can a Breast Augmentation procedure improve symmetry and give you a balanced figure, it can help you feel more feminine and boost self-image!


Breast lifts and breast reconstruction are procedures used to restore the breast to a more normal appearance. Although both procedures serve the same end purpose, they are used for different reasons.


An increasing number of women are making the decision to have their breast size surgically reduced. Breast reduction surgery, also called reduction mammoplasty, is the removal of excess fat, tissue, and skin to make breasts smaller and improve symmetry.


Designed to restore and rejuvenate various parts of your body after pregnancy, the Mommy Makeover procedure consists of a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, as well as treatments for your lower body.

How Does Cosmetic Surgery Work in Utah?

People often use the terms cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery interchangeably, but the two terms are different and have distinct goals. 

Plastic surgery is the reconstruction of the face and body due to medical conditions. This surgery is reconstructive in nature and attempts to correct dysfunctional areas of the body related to trauma or illness.

On the other hand, cosmetic surgery is a separate discipline within medicine that focuses on enhancing a patient’s appearance. Cosmetic surgery improves aesthetic appeal, symmetry, and proportion to the patient’s liking. This includes procedures that enhance the breasts, contour and rejuvenate the face, contour the body, or improve the skin. 

All of this is part of an effort to improve your self confidence. So with cosmetic surgery, the procedures you would like completed are up to you. It’s a good idea to discuss the results you would like to have with your doctor so he or she can recommend the best path to get there.

What Factors Should I Consider Beforehand?

Now that you understand cosmetic surgery, there are some key factors that you should think about before you begin your journey to finding a doctor. The Mayo Clinic suggests that patients should consider the following areas before cosmetic surgery:

  • Your own expectations. Think about what you want from cosmetic surgery and what is possible. Anticipate improvement of your appearance, not perfection. Consulting a medical professional will help you understand what is possible from your cosmetic surgery experience!
  • The expense of the procedure. One of the most common questions from patients is, “Does insurance cover cosmetic surgery?” Sadly, since cosmetic surgery is for self-improvement, many procedures are not covered by insurance. Consider what care you will need before and after the procedure. Our office is here to help, and we offer payment plans to make care accessible to all. 
  • The risks. While risks are often minimal, it is a good idea to talk in detail to your medical provider about the risks associated with any procedure. Being informed is key before you begin any procedure.
  • Your recovery. After your procedure, you will need time to recover. Recovery times can vary by procedure, so be sure to discuss recovery with your doctor and be able to schedule it into your life.

Most Importantly, Consider Your Doctor

The most important consideration, however, should be your doctor. Finding a qualified cosmetic surgeon in Utah is critical to ensuring your cosmetic surgery experience is everything you want it to be. Be sure that you’re comfortable not only with your doctor, but with the staff and atmosphere as well. 

Cosmetic surgery shouldn’t feel overwhelming. Rather, it should help you improve yourself! That is why it is important to talk to your doctor during your consultation to understand the procedure beforehand.
