The 4 Ps to Consider Before Plastic Surgery
- Posted on: Mar 21 2014
The increasing number of various cosmetic procedures is proof that more and more people are showing interest in how plastic surgery could change their lives for the better. Here at our Victorville plastic surgery practice, we always remind our patients that they are most likely to get the results they want if they do the procedure for the right reasons on the right time with the right plastic surgeon.
If you’ve been thinking of getting plastic surgery, whether it’s surgical or non-surgical in nature, it is very crucial that you do your homework — know everything there is to know about the procedure and carefully assess your options from the knowledge you gathered.
Dr. Tehrani recommends the following 4 Ps to consider before making your decision:
What exactly is it that you want to change? While you may need other people’s opinions, it is you alone who will have the final say of your procedure. By and large, ideal candidates of plastic surgery are people with realistic expectations. It is important for you to realize that plastic surgery won’t help you get your ex-lover back or solve bouts of depression.
Planning for Your Plastic Surgery
Keep in mind that plastic surgery may take time — from preparing for the surgery to your recovery period, except for non-surgical procedures such as Botox, fillers, and chemical peels. You need to have a plan, like setting aside time for it and having enough funds for the expenses, to achieve optimal results.
Potential Risks and Complications
Like all types of surgery, there will always be risks and complications. You need to carefully discuss with your plastic surgeon the possible risks and complications of the specific procedure you want to have and which measures you can take to prevent them from happening.
Plastic Surgeon of Your Choice
Not all plastic surgeons are created equal. It takes considerable experience, skill, and knowledge for a plastic surgeon to successfully perform a procedure so make sure you choose a board certified plastic surgeon. Furthermore, you need to find someone whom you are comfortable discussing your expectations and goals with. Lastly, the surgeon of your choice should perform the procedure in an accredited facility with qualified health professionals that are available throughout your operation.
