As more celebrities go public with their plastic surgery, so too does its popularity rise. In 2015, over 1.3 million women got plastic surgery, with 12.5 million receiving procedures that could be categorized as minimally invasive. Does this mean that you should have plastic surgery too? Surgery to look better is not inherently right or wrong. While the ultimate decision will be up to you, there are several things you should know before making your choice.
Plastic Surgery Does Not Always Mean Immediate Results
You can read plenty of success stories about body transformations through plastic surgery. With some media polish, these pieces can make the process sound like an easy one-visit operation that will make you perfect in no time. Whether that means your body needs time to adapt to new conditions, or you require more than one visit to the clinic before you get the results you are looking for, the reality is that some plastic surgery procedures do not lead to immediate results.
Research Your Doctor
Most people don’t think about who their doctor is until they are on the operating table. By that point, they may feel it is too late to say anything. Your doctor should be someone who you are comfortable with evaluating your body – which is a part of the process for plastic surgery. Even the most confident people can start feeling uncomfortable, whether it is because the doctor is someone of the opposite gender, does not have good bedside manner, or is too cold about analyzing your physical features.
There is also the matter of knowing how skilled your surgeon is with injections. While using injections in plastic surgery is a common practice, it is still very technical. A surgeon’s skill with these injections can be one of the most decisive factors of how your surgery ends. Are they using the same injection pattern for every person, or do they treat every case as unique? Asking questions like these can help you find a doctor you are comfortable with.
Every surgery has some level of risk involved, and plastic surgery is no exception. If you believe you have been injured due to a doctor’s negligence, you may be eligible for filing a personal injury or medical malpractice claim.
