The Things You Should Consider Before Undergoing A Cosmetic Surgery

Aug 18, 2007
Looking attractive and full of youthful vitality even at fifty is no longer the dreams of romantic fools. What you need a little bit of cosmetic surgery and it is time to encounter a new face in the mirror sans all the irritating marks of growing age----the sagging skin, double chin, crows feet all over the face and forehead, bags under the eyes and so on. With cosmetic techniques becoming far fetched, less invasive and less expensive, more and more common people today are able to fulfill their dreams about a flawless looks---both of their face and of their bodies. Dissatisfied over the shape of your nose, the lips appear to be too thin, a protruding tummy affecting your self esteem----these are some of the problems the twenty first century people are not ready to put up with. And this explains the dramatic increase in the number of cosmetic surgery cases over a decade.

However, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) strongly recommends that patients should do extensive research before undergoing plastic surgery. This is because, while cosmetic surgeries generally produce dramatic results, there are cases where patients regret their uninformed decision followed by dissatisfactory results.

Here are some points you need to consider before undergoing plastic surgery:

Many patients view cosmetic correction as a life changing solution. But aesthetic outcome of any cosmetic surgery may vary with individual patients and that is why you must have realistic expectations about the outcome of surgery. Avoid the over-hyped publicities; instead research well about the limitations of the surgery you are planning to undergo.

You also have to know you surgeon well. The aesthetic outcome of any cosmetic procedure depends most on the hands of your surgeon. Make sure, your surgeon has a proven track record in the field of cosmetic surgery. A reference from your friends can help you find an efficient plastic surgeon.

The most important point to learn is the risk factors associated with cosmetic surgeries. This is after all a surgery and no surgery can be completely devoid of some risks such as infections. The cosmetic surgeries come with the risk of dissymmetrical outcome, removal of too much skin, internal bleeding and so on. Before jumping into decision, make your doctor clearly explain the possible risk factors.

There are many cosmetic procedures that are aimed from enhancing your features to contouring your body---but not all the procedures are suitable for all patients. Make sure you qualify for a certain procedure.

Lastly, whatever may be your intention for undergoing cosmetic surgery or whatever procedure you may have chosen, do not forget to do adequate homework. As said by Dr. Roxanne Guy, president of ASPS, "You can afford to be nonchalant about some things, but surgery is not one of them."
