Set Realistic Expectations

Numerous studies have shown that plastic surgery can increase a patient’s confidence. Recently, a study by the University of Basel revealed patients who had realistic expectations going into their procedure were happier with their results. How can you set realistic expectations? Start by thinking of your surgery as a way to enhance your natural beauty, not fundamentally change the way you look. Look at the before and after pictures of patients with similar body types to see what results you can expect.

Prepare Your Body

Eating healthy, exercising regularly, and quitting cigarettes are steps that you should implement before visiting a plastic surgeon. Smoking in particular has been shown to increase risks during and after surgery, so plan to quit 6 weeks before your procedure and stay smoke-free for at least 4 weeks after. Bring a list of all the medications and supplements you take to your surgeon, some will need to be stopped before your procedure.

Find The Top Plastic Surgeon In San Antonio

Finding the right plastic surgeon will help you get great results, and feel confident before and after your procedure. How do you know you’ve found the right plastic surgeon? Here are a few tips:

  • Make sure your surgeon is board-certified in plastic surgery.

  • Ask your surgeon about their background, including how often they perform the procedure you want.

  • Take note of your surgeon’s bedside manner. Does your surgeon listen to your concerns, and answer your questions?

  • Find a surgeon who offers options for your procedure. There is no “one size fits all” in cosmetic surgery.
