The Best Back-to-School Procedures

Body, Breast, Face, Skin

With the first day of classes fast approaching, you are likely organizing school supplies and finishing up any last minute packing. Even if you’ve spent time researching and considering plastic surgery, the procedure you desire may be one of the last things on your mind with everything else that is going on. But what if we told you that now, before you head back to school, might be the perfect time to schedule a consultation at Coastal Plastic Surgeons and receive the enhancement you have always wanted? Plenty of our patients come see Dr. Batra before their classes start, desiring both surgical and nonsurgical solutions to help them feel more confident about the way they look. To help you decide which procedure to inquire about, we’ve come up with some of the best cosmetic treatments to receive before classes resume this fall.


The nose is one of the most prominent features on the face and can therefore create many self-esteem issues if you have cosmetic concerns about the way it looks. Whether due to injury or heredity, the nose can look large, flat or wide compared to the rest of the face or exhibit issues such as a deviated septum or bulbous tip. With nose surgery, you can correct the areas that cause you to feel self-conscious about your appearance and reshape your nose so that it looks appealing and proportional to the rest of your face. Additionally, rhinoplasty can eliminate many of the health concerns associated with a misshapen nose.

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular surgical procedures for women to receive, and it is desirable due to the procedure’s ability to boost self-confidence and enhance femininity in patients. A breast augmentation typically involves implants with the size chosen depending on your personal aesthetic goals as well as Dr. Batra’s professional recommendation. The purpose of receiving an augmentation is to improve fullness to the breasts and make the bust more aesthetically pleasing. You are able to choose between both silicone and saline implants along with their placement within the breast tissue, all of which is discussed during a consultation with Dr. Batra.

Male breast reduction

Some men experience enlarged breast tissue, which is a condition referred to as gynecomastia. Too much tissue in the male breast can create a more feminine physique, which is often an undesirable trait for those who are affected. Gynecomastia is known to cause many issues with self-esteem, which is why men choose to receive a breast reduction and achieve a more masculine figure. Typically, liposuction is used to remove the fatty tissues from the breast and the skin is excised to create a flatter chest.

Ear surgery

Like the nose, the ears are another feature that can draw unwanted attention if their size or positioning is disproportionate to the rest of the face. Ear pinning or otoplasty can effectively reshape and change the size of the ears so that they look more cosmetically appealing and blend in with the remainder of your facial features. Many patients feel more self-confident after receiving otoplasty knowing that their ears are no longer the focal point of their face.


When your skin is creating cosmetic concerns, procedures such as dermabrasion can improve the appearance of deep acne scarring or wrinkles on the face. The procedure is performed with the controlled surgical scraping of the epidermis, removing the layer of skin and allowing it to rejuvenate with a newer, fresher layer. The scraping stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, which is a healing agent that works specifically to resurface areas of the skin with certain imperfections. Dermabrasion can be performed in a specific area or on the entire face and can also be combined with other surgeries such as a facelift.


You may use certain dieting techniques and exercise on a regular basis, but not every area of your body will respond to your efforts. When stubborn body fat will not budge, liposuction can remove fatty deposits in various areas of the body and create a more appealing body contour. Fat in and around the neck, thighs, buttocks, knees, abdomen and cheeks respond to liposuction quickly and effectively to produce cosmetically appealing results.

Lip fillers

Many people have cosmetic concerns about the fullness of their lips and desire a way to enhance their volume. Using a series of dermal filler injections that contain hyaluronic acid, you can plump your lips and adjust their shape, structure and fullness. The hyaluronic acid contained in the fillers is a natural carbohydrate already present in the body’s tissues, and when injected, the acid provides additional moisturization and rejuvenation to the lips.

Why receive cosmetic treatment now?

Receiving plastic surgery or nonsurgical procedures before your upcoming semester is beneficial for a number of reasons, the main one being that you can recover during the amount of time you have off before school begins. Additionally, the younger you receive cosmetic enhancement, the faster your recovery time will be, meaning that your results will more than likely be healed before you have to go out in public during school.

Regardless of when you decide to undergo a cosmetic procedure, the results can help you feel more confident in your appearance, and if you decide to receive treatment before school begins, you can enter your new classes with one less concern weighing on your mind. You shouldn’t have to feel stressed out about your appearance while dealing with the stressors of school, which is why we recommend being proactive about your cosmetic treatment so that you can enjoy this next school year!
