Are you a Good Candidate for Plastic Surgery?
- Posted on: Feb 15 2018
If you are considering getting plastic surgery, you likely have a lot of important questions. At Lam Plastic Surgery, we understand that the decision to pursue plastic surgery can be both exciting and overwhelming. Our services range from breast enhancement and liposuction to facelifts and rhinoplasty.
Questions to ask before you get plastic surgery
To determine if you are a good candidate for plastic surgery, conduct a self-appraisal. First, are you in generally good health? If you drink too much or have serious health issues like obesity, high blood pressure, a bleeding disorder, heart disease, diabetes or depression, you may not be a good candidate for plastic surgery. Depending on your specific situation, you may be able to still pursue plastic surgery. For instance, if you are a smoker, you will be asked to quit about 2-4 weeks before your surgery and 2-4 weeks post surgery. Getting rid of your smoking habit is vital to helping your body prepare for the surgery and heal properly after the surgery. Second-hand smoke also needs to be avoided.
Second, do you have realistic expectations for the result? If you think that getting rhinoplasty (a nose job) will suddenly make you more popular or magically land you that job promotion, you may need to reconsider your decision to get plastic surgery. Plastic surgery can deliver wonderful results, but it is important to understand that your expectations must be tempered by reality. To help you determine what plastic surgery procedure is right for you, schedule a consultation
