You’d like to have a little cosmetic work done. Before you schedule a procedure, there are some questions that you want to ask. You’ll find that our plastic surgeon is happy to provide the answers you seek. Here are some examples of the more common questions that patients ask before they decide to go ahead with the procedure.
Am I Healthy Enough to Undergo the Procedure?
Your health is of paramount importance to our plastic surgeon. That’s why it’s necessary to review your medical history and your current state of health before agreeing to perform any procedure. The goal is to ensure that your current condition will not complicate the surgery or your recovery. If there are some risks due to a chronic condition, the two of you can discuss ways to minimize the risk before deciding to schedule the procedure.
What Sort of Results Can I Expect?
You have a vision of what the procedure will accomplish. Is that vision realistic? The only way to know for sure is to talk with our plastic surgeon. As part of the examination, the surgeon will tell you what can be done and the type of results you can expect. Thanks to modern technology, it’s possible to create an image that gives you a better idea of how you’ll look. The goal here is to help you understand what the procedure will and will not accomplish.
How Do I Prepare for the Procedure?
Preparing for the procedure is key to the entire process. Our plastic surgeon will provide a list of things that you can do in advance. Some of them apply to anyone undergoing the procedure. Other things on the list will have to do with your specific circumstances. Everything on the list is designed to help things go smoothly before, during, and after the surgery.
What Should I Do During My Recovery?
Just as you received a list of things to do prior to the procedure, the plastic surgeon will provide a list of things you can and can’t do at different stages of the recovery. This allows you to prepare in advance to take time off, ensure you have someone to stay with you if necessary, and in general know how you can participate in the recovery process.
