10 TIPS BEFORE HAVING COSMETIC SURGERY
You probably have a strong desire for cosmetic surgery and for a particular procedure.
Consider that well. Plastic or Cosmetic surgery is definitely something that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
First of all be honest with yourself and ask yourself why do you want this procedure.
If there is not something quite obvious that you could well have surgery for ask yourself just what do you need to have done, and why?
If your friends are saying to you that you really don’t need to have cosmetic surgery, maybe they are right, and you should heed what they say.
Maybe you are being overly critical of your nose, breasts, eyelids or some part of you.
Maybe you have a deep seated psycholgical condition, or lack of self respect. Know that if you want cosmetic surgery for that reason it is not likely to be a permanent remedy, as the feeling will come back focusing on another part of you and you will want surgery for that.
Have the talk with yourself before you consult a cosmetic surgeon because the surgeon if he is being responsible will need to know you have a sound reason for having surgery.
1. Don’t rush to have cosmetic surgery.
Take the time to consider these 10 tips. You should know your surgeon, your intended procedure and what it entails and every other little detail about it, for instance how long it takes to recover. Know your cosmetic surgeon. Select a qualified, reputable practitioner to perform your procedure and research that practitioner thoroughly. Find out how long they have been practicing, what qualifications they offer, which areas or procedures they specialise in.
2. Meet the surgeon in person
It is crucial that you meet the surgeon who will carry out your procedure beforehand. They all ought to meet with their patients, but some don’t bother. Some may have a fee (around $75) for pre surgery and commitment consultation. If that is not their usual practice, think again about engaging them. Any reputable practitioner will want to meet and talk with their patients themselves beforehand. It is also important that you feel comfortable with your doctor and that you trust them and for that you need to have a talk with them.
3. Research the procedure
There is an enormous amount of information about specific cosmetic procedures so there is no excuse for ignorance. Many surgeries post videos of procedures being carried out, to attract business, but of course you can watch and go elsewhere. There may be some before and after photos in their gallery. These may give you some idea of what is possible, but know that these are outomes worth showing – some outcomes may not be. Read any testimonials of people who have already undergone the procedure and find a discussion forum where good, and bad, outcomes are posted. Feel free to drop into a forum and ask anything that comes to mind. Mostly there would be positive helpful info from people who are pleased with their outcome. Anyone there will be glad to help you. All of this will help you to make an informed decision about whether this is the right procedure for you. Confirm any conflicting info or doubts with your potential practitioner.
4. Understand the risks
There are risks associated with every cosmetic procedure, however non-invasive they are. During the consultation stage your practitioner should be open and honest with you about the potential risks or dangers involved. Ask questions, particularly if there is something that concerns you or that you do not understand. Don’t trust any practitioner who claims there are no risks involved.
5. Don’t be sucked in by price or advertising
Unlike cut price supermarket specials meant to get you there, a cosmetic procedure is not something which should be offered at cut price. Remember that ‘cut price’ does not necessarily mean ‘better’ and may well mean “a less-care quickie”. Focus on the reputability of the practitioner and the quality of the treatment. Never be coerced into undergoing a cosmetic procedure by a clever marketing campaign for a package. Take your time in making informed decisions.
6. Ask to see their work
Ask to see examples of your doctor’s work. A good surgeon will be proud to show you. Seeing photographic evidence helps you to have realistic expectations, and also give you an idea of the capabilities of the doctor and how the procedure can work in practice. It helps if the surgeon is also in the photo. You want the patients to be his patients.
7. Don’t strive to look like a celebrity, or follow a fad.
The goss mags are full of photoshopped over doctored celebrities. It’s hard not to be influenced by that hype. Be yourself and be not a Kardassian. Make sure that you are doing this for the right reasons. A cosmetic procedure of any kind is something to consider carefully, and is not a decision to be taken lightly. It is also unrealistic to want to try and emulate someone else’s results. Avoid any social keeping-up-with pressure. Accept that all that may be subconscious. For example there is a fad for labia surgery for no good reason and for teenage high school girls in US to have cosmetic surgery to have best chance of being the princess. You can easily get an infatuation with a celebrity image and unrealistic desire to be just like that.
8. Consult a loved one
Confide in a friend or family member – one who will be honest, and not tell you what they think you would like to hear. Don’t be shy of asking or afraid of their opinion. Their opinion could be very valuable and more realistic than your own, and you don’t want them saying “if only you asked us”. Of course, a doctor must respect doctor-patient confidentiality. This is a big decision and one which might be easier with the advice and support of loved one.
9. Understand the recovery process
Being fully informed about the recovery process is vital so that you can prepare yourself in advance. Patients often neglect to think about many important after-op factors: Is it a walk-in walk-out procedure? Will you need assistance leaving the clinic? Will you be affected by the anaesthtic. How should you travel home? Will you be in pain? Do you need to take time off work? How much? What activity to avoid? What does the post-operative care entail? When post-operative follow up visits are required?
10. Insist on a ‘cooling off’ period and use the time well.
Avoid impulsive decision – for this. After you have met for a consultation with you doctor, a responsible doctor would want you to go away and think carefully about your decision. Walk away from any that wants to proceed straight away. Use this ‘cooling off’ period to take your time, think through your options, do some more research and talk to your family or friends before making any decisions. If you feel like you need more information, attend a second consultation with the same practitioner or go for another consultation with a second and third practitioner. This will give you further opinions and will help you make a considered, sensible decision.
