Plastic Surgery -Make the Right Choice

Plastic surgery has obvious and often dramatic benefits. Though, plastic surgery is not for everyone. If considering plastic surgery, keep in mind:

  • No surgery can achieve perfection, and there is no guarantee that the results will look exactly as you envision them.
  • Plastic surgery can reshape your body, not your life. Although enhanced appearance after surgery may improve your self-esteem, plastic surgery will not solve career, marital or emotional problems.
  • Do it at the right time, when you don’t feel exceptional stress and you have emotional support available.
  • Do it for yourself, no to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
  • Be prepared to tolerate some discomfort during and after surgery, as well as the possibility of scars or the other side effects.
  • Understand the risks of plastic surgery.
  • Prepare to pay for your surgery if your insurance does not cover the costs, as is the case for elective, cosmetic plastic surgery.
  • Know that plastic surgery is not suitable for everybody, especially people who are prone to mood swings or erratic behavior, who abuse drugs or alcohol, or who are receiving treatment for clinical depression or other mental illness.
  • Patients under 18 will need parental consent for surgery and must have achieved certain milestones in growth and physical maturity.

      Congratulations. That is a huge accomplishment and something to be proud of. Before you proceed with any surgery, you will want to make sure that you are at a steady weight. There is also a post titled “Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss” that may be of some interest to you.

      Best of luck.
