1 – Make sure your doctor is board certified in plastic surgery.
2 – Be healthy physically. Have a complete medical check-up to screen for any risk factors. Don’t hide anything – this is your life (and health) at stake.
3 – Be healthy emotionally. Cosmetic surgery can’t and won’t fix any of the underlying problems making you miserable.
4 – Follow doctor’s pre and post operative orders EXACTLY. Cut corners and you will compromise your results.
5 – No smoking. Quit weeks before your operation. It’s also wise to cut out the caffeine and alcohol.
6 – Stay out of the sun. Protect your skin from damaging and aging UV rays, which will make scars more visible.
7 – Expect to look worse before you look better. It takes time for swelling and bruising to dissipate before you see results.
8 -Be realistic. You’ll look marvelous, but you won’t look exactly like your fave model or movie star.
9 – Be more realistic if you’re 65 or older. Not even the most gifted surgeon can turn the calendar all the way back to 25. You want to look natural and refreshed, not ridiculous.
10 – Communicate. If you have questions, concerns, worries, or fears. talk to your doctor. there really are no stupid questions. We are here for you and here to help you every step of the way.
