Plastic Surgery Make the Right Choice

Is plastic surgery right for me?

Plastic surgery has obvious and often benefits. However, it is not for everyone. If you are condering plastic surgery, keep in mind the following:

  • 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, not 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 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, whoa buse drugs, alcohol, or who receiving treatment for clinical depression or other mental illnesses.
  • Patients under 18 will need parental consent for surgery and must also have achieved certain milestones in growth and physical maturity.

The success and safety of your plastic surgery procedure depends very much on your complete candidness during your consultation. You’ll be asked a number of questions about your health, desires and lifestyles.

Be prepared to discuss:

  • Why you want the surgery, your expectations and desired outcome
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatment
  • Use of current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drugs
  • Previous surgeries
  • Family health history
