Nip and Tuck: 5 Questions You Should Ask Before Plastic Surgery
Every year, Americans spend over $16 billion on cosmetic plastic surgeries.
Are you thinking about having cosmetic surgery? There are some things you need to know first to make sure you’re prepared for what is going to happen to your body.
We look at five questions to ask before plastic surgery.
1. What Does the Procedure Entail Exactly?
Don’t go under the knife before first finding out exactly what is going to happen to you while you’re under.
During your pre-op consultation, you’ll have plenty of time to ask this question – this isn’t the time to feel squeamish.
When you get home, make sure to use the internet to learn about other people’s experiences and decide whether this surgery really is right for you.
2. Are There Any Risks to Be Aware Of?
Once you’ve worked out exactly what will happen to you, find out what you’re risking.
Could you deal with the complications if something went wrong? Is this plastic surgery worth the risks?
Could you have time off from work due to infections? Do you mind having scars?
3. What’s the Best Possible Outcome?
In order to figure out the best possible outcome from surgery, you need to clearly communicate with your surgeon what you want. Don’t skip any details.
They will then be able to help you get closer to this goal. Perhaps your dreams aren’t realistic and they’ll be able to give you a better idea of what to expect.
Do you still want to undergo surgery if you’re not able to achieve your dream breasts/booty/nose?
4. Is Surgery the Only Option?
If you’re feeling uncertain about undergoing the knife after having spoken extensively with your surgeon, then you may want to consider alternatives.
A good surgeon will be able to help you decide on whether to have surgery or to start with an alternative.
For example, are you hoping to have surgery to help you lose weight? Instead, why not spend six months with a nutritionist and a personal trainer before making the decision about whether surgery is truly right for you.
5. How Much Are You Willing to Spend?
Perhaps the most important question to ask is how much will this procedure cost me in total?
You don’t want to put yourself into debt without first knowing this would happen. Make sure to both speak with your surgeon and do your research to find out how much surgery will cost.
Relax Before Plastic Surgery
If you’ve asked all of these questions and are happy with the answers, then there’s nothing more to do than mentally prepare and relax.
Before plastic surgery, you may be unhappy with your body and come out afterward with completely renewed confidence! Focus on this, rather than the surgery itself.
However, don’t entirely rely on surgery to make you happy. Check out these ideas for how to bring back your happiness when it fades.
