Plastic Surgery Planning Guide
The internet is a vast resource for someone considering plastic surgery, but the sheer amount of information available can be overwhelming. Our Plastic Surgery Planning Guide provides you convenient access to quality information and resources to assist you on your cosmetic beautiful journey.
There are a lot of aspects of plastic surgery to consider before you go to your first consultation. We believe it is important to know how to be best prepared, physically and mentally. Plastic surgery isn’t for everyone; there are certain considerations you’ll want to think about, and discuss with your physician before you take the plunge.
Are you considering plastic surgery for the right reasons?
It is important, however, to remember that your plastic surgery is for you. You should never feel pressured into a cosmetic procedure. Ask yourself if you are pursuing your procedure because you want it, or because someone else is pushing for it. Unfortunately, many people turn to plastic surgery to please other people, often a partner. Plastic surgery cannot fix relationships – it is a procedure that should only be performed because you want it so you can feel better about yourself, not because you believe it will please someone else.
Are you a good candidate for plastic surgery?
- You have reasonable expectations for and know the risks of your procedure
- You are in overall (mental and physical) good health
- You are at a healthy weight
- You do not have major health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure
- You are not a heavy drinker or smoker
