Not surprisingly, winter is an immensely popular time season for elective plastic surgery procedures. The promise of new beginnings and reinventing certain aspects of ourselves lends nicely to the world of cosmetic and plastic surgery. In this blog, we will present some trusted and popular plastic surgery procedures with the highest satisfaction rates and discuss the various ways these procedures can boost confidence in a patient’s outward appearance while bringing much-needed calm to their mental well-being.
Top Plastic Surgery Procedures: Functional Rhinoplasty & Cosmetic Rhinoplasty
The world of plastic surgery has come a long way since mainstream introduction in the 1960s and 1970s. During its early years, plastic surgery procedures didn’t always provide the most alluring visual results, and due to an understandable lack of technology advancement, these procedures were followed by lengthy recovery processes and noticeable side effects.
Thankfully, we have a wealth of collective research and updated practices in the fields of plastic and cosmetic surgery, and some of the most common procedures offer satisfying results. Furthermore, these top procedures can now offer simultaneous aesthetic and health benefits to the patient. Perhaps no procedure illustrates this better than functional rhinoplasty.
As shown on the site Realself.com, which presents unaltered photos of real plastic surgery results, rhinoplasty boasts a satisfaction rate of 90% with nearly 20,000 reviews. The cause of this high patient satisfaction rate is due in part to the fact that it can serve multiple purposes.
Functional Rhinoplasty, also known as septoplasty, is a procedure in which the structure of the nose is altered to correct breathing problems caused by structural defects within the nasal passages. Due to this aspect of the procedure, a patient’s rhinoplasty can help eliminate certain health problems while sculpting the contours and profile of the face.
Cosmetic Rhinoplasty can bring balance to the face. Dr. James Banich completed his residency in both ENT (ear, nose, throat) and plastic surgery, so he appreciates both the function and form of rhinoplasty. He shares, “Subtle sculptural changes to the shape of the nose can greatly impact not only the aesthetic of the nose itself but also the overall appearance of the face.”

Top Plastic Surgery Procedures: Blepharoplasty
Another procedure of the face, blepharoplasty focuses specifically on problems with droopy skin in the eye area. Our age shows in various ways, but tired-looking eyes are some of the biggest culprits in signs of premature aging. Tightening the appearance of the skin under the eye by removing excess skin, fat, or muscle tissue can go a long way in changing the overall appearance of the face and presenting a more youthful and energetic quality to the eyes. It’s no surprise then that Realself.com gives this procedure a satisfaction rate of 94%.
Dr. James Banich explains, “Blepharoplasty is a popular procedure because it can often be performed in-office under local anesthesia.”
Top Plastic Surgery Procedures: Breast Reduction and Augmentation
Breast reduction and augmentation are two additional examples of surgical procedures that can improve physical appearance while also—in many cases—reducing discomfort.
Women with larger breasts often have pain and discomfort in their backs and necks and can even experience breathing problems. Breast reduction surgery can be a life-changer for patients who have been dealing with these issues for years. Similarly, breast augmentation can provide women with a more natural-looking and symmetrical appearance while also improving comfort associated with physical activities.
These lifestyle factors and benefits combine to present an astonishing 97% satisfaction rate among both breast reduction and breast augmentation procedures. Dr. Paul Pierce and Dr. James Banich perform both procedures and have found that they have a high satisfaction rate.
In addition, our general plastic surgeons work with breast surgeons in southern Colorado to provide reconstruction following breast cancer surgery. Dr. Paul Pierce is fellowship trained in microsurgery and is among the few surgeons trained to offer DIEP flag reconstruction.
