Am I ready for plastic surgery?
Many options are available to enhance natural features or to correct natural or acquired deficiencies. But undergoing plastic surgery needs to be the product of a sound decision. Plastic surgery is a journey which you need to be mentally and physically prepared for.
People can be attracted by plastic or cosmetic surgery. But to quote Dr. Foad Nahai, one of the greatest Plastic Surgery mentors, “Forget about aesthetic, remember surgery!”
Surgery is a complex undertaking, performed by specialised people. It helps to enhance the natural appearance, but it can not be guaranteed to be without risks.
If you are in a good health, a non-smoker, in a good phase of your life, have realistic expectations, are relatively well informed, psychologically stable, you are most likely a good candidate for plastic surgery.
During your first consultation, we will discuss your concerns and expectations.
Every person is a special, different entity, with special requirements. We believe this and treat everyone accordingly. You will have some guidelines about what to expect, the limitations, recovery time as well as risks, but the reality can be quite different from one person to another.
The common-sense advice for every patient is to listen to their surgeon and their instructions, even if they feel well and capable. You are feeling well for a reason, and that is due to following the correct instructions so far. It is very predictable (unfortunately still occurring) that once the rules are not respected, unnecessary delays and unwanted events can occur.
I cannot overemphasize the need for the necessary recovery time, especially for big procedures.– Dr Carmen Munteanu
