Things to Consider Before Having Plastic Surgery

Electing to have plastic surgery is an important decision and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. It requires much planning and consideration. Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. John Park wants you to be as informed as possible prior to undergoing plastic surgery. Here are a few things you should keep in mind when planning for your procedure.

Do It For Yourself

This is one of the most important things to remember when electing to have plastic surgery. You should be having surgery to correct or enhance something that you would like altered, not anyone else. The majority of plastic surgery procedures are for cosmetic purposes and therefore elective, meaning they are not necessary. You’re the only one that needs to be happy with the results; it’s your body and your decision.

Wait Until You Are Ready

There’s no need to rush into having surgery, especially if it’s for cosmetic purposes. It’s vital that you’re in good health prior to surgery as even cosmetic surgery is hard on your body. The more physically fit you are before your procedure the easier your recovery will be and, quite possibly, the better your results will be. Take the time to get your health under control.

Your Results May Not Be Immediate

Following your breast augmentation, mommy makeover, tummy tuck or another surgery, your body will be swollen depending on what you had done. This will prevent you from seeing results at first. Also, many surgeries take time for your body to finish taking shape and contouring. Don’t be discouraged, with time your results will settle and take form. Plastic surgery is not an overnight fix-all but rather a journey to rejuvenation. You should always approach any procedure with realistic and attainable expectations.

Ask A Lot Of Questions

Don’t be afraid to ask questions during your consultation. You need to know what is going to happen to your body. Plastic surgery is major surgery and something that you can’t just reverse or take back. Sure, some procedures can be tweaked but ideally, you want to make sure it’s done right the first time or that you’ve chosen the correct procedure and have done all the correct steps to achieve your desired results.
