Last season, plastic surgeons Sean and Christian struggled to keep their fictional exclusive south Florida cosmetic surgery practice above water. The economy had FX's popular drama Nip/Tuck doing more Botox injections and fewer face lifts. While financial stress made for good drama, it may have made viewers assume that plastic surgery belongs only to the rich and famous. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Plenty of everyday Cleveland women – those of us who don't expect to walk down a red carpet anytime in the future -- have discovered the advantages of cosmetic surgery. And it's probably not as expensive as you think. After all, Cleveland is not the beaches of sun streaked South Florida, and prices here are not driven by television chic.
Cleveland plastic surgery centers like Accentuate Within Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center in Avon Lake, Ohio, offer a broad range of appearance-enhancing cosmetic options at prices that are more affordable than you probably think.
At Accentuate Within, the two most important aspects of your cosmetic surgery experience should be your comfort with the procedure you have selected and, equally important, your comfort with Dr. Poblete and the center's staff. After those critical items are addressed to your satisfaction, we're able to work out when and where to schedule your cosmetic surgery experience and address cosmetic surgery cost concerns.
During your consultation visit, you will receive an itemized quote detailing the professional fee, surgical fee, anesthesia fee and any other costs related to the specific cosmetic surgery procedure you have selected. The goal at Accentuate Within is to keep plastic surgery costs affordable for our Cleveland patients. Affordable finance options are available and estimates can be provided. Don't let money be a stumbling block to creating the youthful, attractive appearance you desire. Affordable Cleveland cosmetic surgery is available at Accentuate Within.

As one happy patient noted – "DON'T GIVE UP ON YOUR BODY!"
Reality television personality Heidi Montag's revelation on Good Morning America earlier this week that she underwent 10 cosmetic surgery procedures in a single day last November shocked viewers and unleashed a firestorm of outrage and debate in the press and on the blogosphere. Concern seemed to be directed most at the questionable necessity and safety of a 23-year-old woman undergoing so many elective cosmetic surgery procedures and the example Heidi's choices set for young fans who have followed her career since she caught the public's notice during three seasons on The Hills.
Heidi's on-air revelation followed her comment in last week's People magazine that she was "beyond obsessed" with plastic surgery. On Good Morning America, Heidi defended her decision, saying, "I'm living in my skin, and I look in the mirror and it's my career and my life, and you only have one. So, I want to take advantage of everything and be the best me, in and out, every way."
Heidi told Good Morning America she underwent cosmetic surgery procedures to her brows, neck, chin, jaw, nose, cheeks, lips, waist, hips and thighs all in a single surgery session and had previously had a nose job and breast augmentation. She said she plans to go undergo additional cosmetic surgery in the future to further increase her breast size from triple-D to H. When asked how she felt about the results of her cosmetic surgery procedures, Heidi said, "I think I look like myself. I think I just look like a different, improved version of myself."
Some of Heidi's The Hills cast mates were among many who expressed concern about the effect publicity about Heidi's choices might have on young girls. On the All Headline News website, The Hills' Lo Bosworth was quoted as saying, "I hope that girls don't...look at the decisions that Heidi made and think that's normal...I would never want young girls to read that and think it's the standard that they need to be measured by."
The controversy surrounding Heidi's cosmetic surgery choices emphasizes the critical necessity of choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon you can trust who has the professional experience and deep commitment to his patients' well-being, safety and good health to educate you about all of the options available to reach your personal appearance goals. A dedicated cosmetic surgeon will take the time to discuss the long-term implications of various plastic surgery options, offer alternatives and guide you toward healthy choices.
Dr. Poblete and the staff at Accentuate Within Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Center in Avon Lake, Ohio work closely with each patient to develop a specialized personal care program to ensure that every patient meets her appearance goals effectively and safely. Dr. Poblete may recommend that contemplated surgeries be spaced at intervals to allow the patient to become comfortable with the results of the first surgery before deciding if additional procedures are necessary.
In our Patient Diaries download, you can read Wendy's Story. A 34-year-old Cleveland woman, Wendy came to us seeking a tummy tuck and breast implants to remove post-baby sag, but confessed she wasn't completely comfortable with silicone implants. Dr. Problete listened to her concerns and was able to suggest an alternative he felt would provide even better results. As Wendy says, "To my surprise [Dr. Poblete] informed me I would not need implants and that I would be very satisfied with a full tummy tuck and breast lift." After her surgery, Wendy commented, "I have never felt so good about looking in the mirror at myself...My breasts are lifted and fuller and no longer hide in my armpits when I lay in bed at night. Both my husband and I are happy."
Honorable plastic surgeons like Dr. Problete who value their patients' well-being have your health and welfare at heart and will guide you to the safest, most effective cosmetic surgery procedures to help you achieve your appearance goals.
If we only knew then what we know now we would never have spent hours at the beach or around the pool baking in that luscious golden tan. Of course, as you turned your youthful face to follow the sun's rays, you didn't know your skin would pay such a heavy price decades later. Now when you look in the mirror you see the creeping damage caused by hours in the sun and, let's be honest, aging.
Those awful fine lines that radiate out from your once plump and sensuous lips are beginning to give you that unnatural "old lady pucker." You've seen it on your grandmother. Tiny age lines and deeper crevices caused by cumulative sun damage ring the lips, creating an unattractive puckery look. Lipstick migrates along the cracks in horrifying red rivers toward nose, cheeks and chin. Even beauty-conscious older women cannot stop the ravages of time. Lip liner can only do so much! Fortunately, non-invasive cosmetic surgery can give us back our youthful appearance.
Accentuate Within offers non-invasive facial rejuvenation to give Cleveland, Akron, Lorain and Sandusky area women the younger, fresher, healthier-looking skin they desire. Experienced cosmetic and plastic surgeon Dr. Vicente Poblete expertly applies Botox and dermal cosmetic tissue fillers to banish those unsightly fine lines around lips and eyes caused by aging and cumulative sun damage. Dr. Poblete may also combine Botox and dermal cosmetic filler treatments with the use of advanced anti-aging skin health products to keep your face looking fresh and beautiful.
The popularity of non-surgical cosmetic procedures like Botox outnumbered surgical procedures by 8 to 1 in 2008, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Before deciding to undergo cosmetic surgery, women are finding extremely satisfactory results can be achieved with non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments at Accentuate Within.
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Isn't it interesting that how we feel we look on the outside so greatly impacts how we feel about ourselves on the inside? And how we feel about ourselves affects our ability to compete and succeed in the work place and on the social scene. It is the most basic element of self-esteem and the root of self-confidence. Interestingly, it has nothing to do with classic physical beauty, at least not society’s or someone else's definition of beauty. It is a matter of our self perception. If we are comfortable with what we see in the mirror, if we feel we look attractive, that our features are pleasing, we feel beautiful and self-confident.
As any woman knows, this belief in our own natural beauty can be a tenuous thing. If a bad hair day can send our spirits plummeting, imagine how devastating it can be to look in the mirror day after day and see yourself as flawed. No human is without small imperfections. Even cover models who are renowned for their beauty confess to feelings of inadequacy about one feature or another. Focusing too closely on our flaws appears to be a universal experience of the human condition. Age only exacerbates the problem, magnifying those tiny imperfections that bother us, chipping away daily at our sense of self. No one escapes. Gravity eventually takes its toll.
Who hasn't indulged in the "if only" game? If only my nose was smaller. If only my breasts were perkier. If only my tummy wasn't so flabby. If only my chin was firmer. Those "if onlies" prevent us from feeling good about ourselves and fully embracing life. Cosmetic surgery and customized body contouring allow you to turn those “if onlies” into wonderful realities. Accentuate Within enhances your natural beauty and allows you to be the woman you want to be.
Quality of care is what distinguishes Accentuate Within from other Cleveland cosmetic and plastic surgery centers. Led by board-certified plastic and cosmetic surgeon Dr. J. Vicente Poblete, the caring and dedicated staff at Accentuate Within's Avon Lake, Ohio surgery center strives to create a superior experience for each of our patients. From initial contact through surgery, post-operative treatment and follow-up visits, Dr. Poblete and his staff are solicitous of our patients’ concerns and feelings and dedicated to helping each patient enhance her natural beauty and achieve her beauty goals.
Properly performed cosmetic surgery requires complex and precise procedures that will affect the life of the patient for years to come. Successful cosmetic surgery does much more than improve a woman’s appearance. Expertly performed cosmetic surgery enhances the way a woman feels about herself, increases her awareness of her personal beauty and adds to her self confidence. Unfortunately, many of the physicians now offering cosmetic surgery procedures lack the extended formal surgical training that ensures dependably successful results. Their training, often limited to weekend courses, and specialties are in other medical areas. They have been lured to cosmetic surgery by its growing popularity but lack the medical credentials of board certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Poblete.
As a board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Poblete has completed lengthy and rigorous medical training specifically in the field of cosmetic and plastic surgery. In addition to completing a three to five year general surgery residency, board certified plastic surgeons must complete an additional two to three years of specialized training in the specific field of plastic surgery. Dr. Poblete brings to his patients expert surgical technique, long experience in cosmetic and plastic surgery and, most importantly, mature surgical judgment.
