If you’ve found yourself considering how a facelift, tummy tuck, breast lift or liposuction would improve your self-image, but may be a bit timid about actually going through with it, here are a few tips that may help. When done correctly, plastic surgery doesn’t have to be frightening. In fact, plastic surgery can give you a healthier, younger look.
- Easy and simple does it. The effects of aging such as lines and wrinkles can be corrected with a facelift, that’s true. But you may want to start simple with injectables or fillers such as Botox or Juvederm. Botox and dermal fillers can target all areas of the face – without going under the knife.
- What questions do you have? Before you decide on surgery, do some research, formulate questions and consult with your surgeon. Know your goals; know your expectations. Your surgeon not only performs the procedure but can help guide you through the process so that you feel comfortable from start to finish. For example, if you are considering breast augmentation surgery, have your surgeon explain the different cup sizes and how they would relate to your body type.
- Know when enough Is enough. It’s possible to become hooked on plastic surgery. But remember, less is usually more. Before you meet with your surgeon for the first time, make a list of the areas of your body that you consider “problem areas.” Discuss these with your surgeon. You may be able to limit potential procedures or combine them – a tummy tuck with liposuction, for example.
Your body and how you feel about it are things we are trained to understand. You should make your own decisions about any procedure, whether surgical or cosmetic, and should not be influenced by your significant other or your favorite Hollywood starlet.
