You should bear in mind that there are as many, if not more, arguments against undergoing cosmetic surgery as there are in favour of it. And of course there are risks. So any discussion with a plastic surgeon should always include consideration of any existing health conditions you might have, your lifestyle, whether you plan on becoming pregnant in the near future, and your expectations concerning the outcome of the surgery.
- Think about the change you want to see, then research and find out as much information as possible about the treatment, being precise about what you want and, above all, be open to all your wishes not being achievable.
- Find a qualified plastic surgeon experienced in the desired procedure, making sure that he or she is board certified. Also look for “genuine” reviews and feedback from previous patients.
- Have consultations with at least 2 or 3 qualified and experienced plastic surgeons, just to have something to compare and cross-check.
- Be honest about your medical history and discuss all aspects of the surgery with the plastic surgeon. Do not be afraid to ask questions, since it is important to know the risks involved and feel comfortable with the person who will be carrying out the surgery.
- The plastic surgeon should be able to explain why they recommend a certain type of treatment option or technique, as with all cosmetic surgery, the type of technique used depends on many factors involving the patient’s indication for treatment, anatomy and lifestyle, and a treatment plan should be tailored to suit the specific needs of the patient.
- Find out what type of care is offered Before, During, and especially After the surgery as after-care can be just as important as the surgery itself. So make sure you know who to contact and how you will be looked after, especially if there are any complications or problems following your surgery.
- Find out where the surgery will be performed, as this can have major implications on safety during the operation and the occurrence of possible risks and complications.
- Last but not least, “COOL OFF” before you Commit. Cosmetic Surgery should not be taken lightly, as it is after all surgery. Take your time and reflect on all aspects of the procedure, and make sure you understand all the implications involved before you make an informed decision to proceed.
