Plastic surgery isn't exactly a small undertaking. Unlike Botox, which fades over time, plastic surgery is considered permanent. It's a once-and-you're-done procedure -- a smart long-term investment, which is why those of us willing to go under the knife will swallow the hefty price tag. But, as it turns out, a nip and tuck meant to erase the hands of time can defy age for only so long. And, often, patients who thought their first procedure would be their last find themselves shelling out for a tune-up. According to Chicago board-certified plastic surgeon Peter Geldner, M.D., so-called plastic surgery revisions may be inevitable -- because no one, not even your surgeon, can say whether your procedure will stand the test of time. "You cannot predict what will happen. We take you as you are now, and we change you as you are now," says Geldner. read more
