What is Holistic Plastic Surgery?
“Holistic Plastic Surgery” is a new term that has popped up recently on social media platforms – especially TikTok and Instagram. While this “buzz word” brings to mind perhaps a more natural or modern approach, its important to unpack what this trending topic really means.
In this article, the experts at AMAE Plastic Surgery in Birmingham, MI explore the meaning of this en vogue phrase.
What is a Holistic Plastic Surgeon?
While the term “holistic” has only recently been applied to plastic surgery – it has actually been around for a long time. A holistic medical practice of any kind takes into account all elements that influence a person’s wellbeing – from their age, underlying medical conditions, lifestyle choices, and environmental factors. In other words, “holistic” is a “whole person” approach to medicine.
When used in the context of plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures, “holistic” generally refers to a comprehensive and all-encompassing approach that aims to slow down the aging process, reverse the cosmetic signs of aging, and enhance natural beauty at every age.
Part of a holistic approach to plastic surgery focuses on the root cause of aging or other cosmetic problems and developing a treatment plan that addresses these issues from the inside and the outside.
Is Dr. Ali in Birmingham, MI a Holistic Plastic Surgeon?
The short answer is “YES” – Dr. Ali takes a comprehensive, “whole patient” approach to plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments.
The long answer is that Dr. Ali has been a “holistic” plastic surgeon for decades – long before this term “holistic” became a marketing catch phrase used on social media. While many people would like you to believe that holistic plastic surgery is a refreshing, new approach to beauty – a good plastic embraces a comprehensive view of his or her patient’s health and wellness.
