Plastic surgery has come a long way, and it’s popularity has grown in leaps, not steps. What was once something only the rich and famous could afford has become so obtainable, and so affordable, that even teenagers are having procedures done. What should you prepare to ask in your initial consultation in order to make your visit with your plastic surgeon as successful as possible?
Whatever procedure you are considering, research the subject. Don’t go to an initial consultation with your plastic surgeon and expect them to “inform you” for the first time what plastic surgery is. Your initial consultation will be more successful if you understand the basics and are prepared with specific questions. Reading blogs such as this, shows that you are taking steps in the right direction. Learning the benefits and risks before you decide will help your experience with plastic surgery be a positive one. Our 4-part-system explains to you step by step what to expect before you decide.
Not everyone is a good candidate for plastic surgery, sometimes simply due to unrealistic expectations. Someone who is indecisive is also not a good candidate. The ideal candidate is someone who wants to look and feel healthier. The best way to discover if you are a good candidate for plastic surgery is to discuss your unique situation with a plastic surgeon in your area who will be able to evaluate your goals and help determine whether or not you should proceed.
There are many questions you should ask yourself before you see a plastic surgeon. A few obvious ones that most people start with are; Do I really want this procedure? Would I be able to live with the results if they were not what I was expecting? Can I afford this?
Of course there are even more questions you need to ask your plastic surgeon. Be open and honest with the doctor and make sure they specialize in the procedure you are considering. Do not be afraid to ask any questions and express any concerns. In order to be prepared, we have provided a thorough list of plastic surgery questions to ask yourself and your doctor.
As with any endeavor, good communication is key to success. Insure that you have a good rapport with the surgeon you are considering for your procedure so that you feel comfortable talking openly and honestly with him or her.
