Top 8 Dos and Don’ts of Plastic Surgery

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, cosmetic surgery can be an extremely effective way of achieving all your aesthetic goals. However, before going under the knife, it’s important to know what to expect, and what to do, in order to achieve the best results.

To help get you started, follow these top 8 Dos and Don’ts of plastic surgery:

Dos of Plastic Surgery:

  1. Always keep realistic expectations. You may love a certain celebrity’s nose or lips, but it’s unrealistic to think that you’re going to end up looking exactly like them. No two faces are ever the same, and in the end, the goal of good plastic surgery is to have natural looking results that enhance your overall appearance without looking out of proportion.

  2. Maintain a healthy diet before your procedure. Plastic surgery, like any surgical procedure, doesn’t come without its risks. If you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle prior to your procedure, you can lower your risks of any complications. In addition, if you are planning a surgery such as liposuction, make sure any planned weight loss happens before the surgery.

  3. Choose a family member or friend to look after you. After your surgery, you’ll need someone to take you home and care for you, so make sure to plan for this ahead of time. Depending on the type of surgery, they may need to drive you home after surgery, take care of you until at least the next morning, or until you are off pain medications.

  4. Plan to take time off work and other activities. One of the most important aspects of successful plastic surgery is the recovery. So make sure to take time (at least one week) off work and other social activities to give your body the time it needs to heal properly.

  5. Be patient. We all want instant gratification from our cosmetic surgery, but you must understand that it can take a few months for your final results to fully materialize. Be patient and trust in yourself and your plastic surgeon.


Don'ts of Plastic Surgery:

  1. Don't let the cost be your primary decision factor. While price is a consideration for any patient who is looking to have cosmetic surgery, it shouldn’t be the primary one. Plastic surgery is an investment, and you should invest wisely. Going for cheap deals can lead to a botched procedure and serious surgical complications. If price is a barrier, consider saving up for the procedure, or other financing options.

  2. Don’t nitpick. After your surgery, it can be easy to constantly look at your results, but you will actually see more dramatic results if you avoid doing this. If you want a more objective perspective on your progress, take a photograph once a month, but remember, your recovery is a journey, not a race.

  3. Drink alcohol, smoke or take blood thinners for at least 3 weeks before and after your surgery. Alcohol and blood thinners can increase your risk of bleeding, while smoking can decrease blood flow to the treatment area, preventing proper healing and greatly increasing your risk of surgical complications.
