Is Plastic Surgery Right for Me ?

Plastic surgery has obvious and often dramatic benefits. It is not for everyone; however, if you are considering plastic surgery, keep in mind the following :

  • Understand the limitations as well as the benefits of plastic surgery. No surgery can achieve perfection, and there is no guarantee that the results will look exactly as you envision them.

  • Have realistic expectations. Plastic surgery can reshape your body, not your life. Although an enhanced appearance after surgery may improve your self-esteem, plastic surgery will not solve career, marital, or emotional problems.

  • Time your surgery at a point when you do not feel exceptional stress and when you have emotional support available.

  • Be prepared to tolerate some discomfort during and after surgery, as well as the possibility of scars or other side-effect.

  • Understand any surgery, to include plastic surgery, has risks.

  • Be able to pay for or finance the surgery if your insurance does not cover the costs, as is the case for elective, cosmetic surgery.

  • Know that plastic surgery is not suitable for people who are prone to mood swings, erratic behavior, abuse drugs or alcohol, or are receiving treatment for clinical depression or other mental illness.

A special note for those under 18 years of age: You will need your parents consent for surgery. You also must have achieved certain milestones in growth and physical maturity.

What Can I Expect ?

Before you have plastic surgery, you will meet with your plastic surgeon for a consultation. Many plastic surgeons charge a consultation fee, since they are providing a professional evaluation, recommendation, and explanation of procedures. Others offer free consultation. Be sure to ask about fees when you make the appointment.

During the consultation, you will want to discuss your goals with your plastic surgeon. He or she will examine you and advise the best procedure to achieve your desired results.

The surgeon should:

  • Answer all of your questions thoroughly and clearly

  • Ask for your reaction to recommendations

  • Offer alternatives, where appropriate, without pressuring you to consider needed or additional procedures

  • Welcome questions about professional qualifications, experience, and cost and payment policies

  • Make clear the risks of surgery and possible outcomes

  • Provide you information about the surgery you want

  • Leave the final decision to you

You also have the right to expect that your surgery will take place in a surgical facility or hospital that is safe and well-equipped. Facilities and accreditation from a recognized accrediting organization have demonstrated that they have appropriate equipment and staff to safely monitor patients and deal with potential complications. Ask whether the facility your surgeon uses is accredited, or is in the process of being accredited.
