According to figures from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Americans spent over $16 billion on plastic surgeries in 2016 alone. Think that’s nothing? Well, figures also showed that it’s the most Americans have ever spent on cosmetic operations.
If you’re planning to undergo your first plastic surgery, Mohave Centers For Plastic Surgery and other industry experts in Lake Havas City, AZ list some questions you need to ask yourself. Let these help you make a better, informed decision:
Am I doing the plastic surgery for me?
In the age of the Internet, it’s easy to feel more self-conscious about the way we look. With cosmetic procedures becoming more popular and affordable, it’s easy to get one. But why are you doing it? More importantly, for whom are you doing it for? Make sure that the answer is for yourself. If you’re doing it for someone else, you need to realize that no amount of plastic surgery can make you feel the way you want to feel.
Am I a good plastic surgery candidate?
Simply because you want one doesn’t mean you can do it now. You should consult your doctor before getting one because there are many factors to consider, physically and emotionally. We’re not just talking about the actual procedure itself. We’re also factoring in your eligibility in relation to post-surgery.
Do I have the right doctor?
Like any other doctor, you need to feel comfortable with your cosmetic surgeon. It’s important to take your time to find the right one because if not, you won’t be able to air out your concerns before, during, and post-surgery. When you find the right one for you, you need to be transparent with your doctor, especially with your health concerns and family history, particular your medical history.
Ask yourself these questions and you need to be truthful with your answer. These can help you decide if you’re good to go now with the cosmetic surgery or delay it a bit.
