Getting The Most Out Of Cosmetic Surgery
When you first think of cosmetic surgery, the amazing treatments had by Hollywood stars often come to mind first. But, you should know that your experience and results may be very different than theirs. The following are some plastic surgery hints to help you understand the process.
Talk about antibiotics with your surgeon. You will more than likely have to take antibiotics a few weeks before the surgery to reduce the risk of infections and other complications. You may want to consider a second opinion if your surgeon isn’t recommending an antibiotic.
Ask your doctor about the potential risks and complications surrounding the procedure you have chosen, and what can be done to reduce the chances of these complications occurring. Research risks of the surgery on your own as well to ensure your surgeon isn’t omitting unpleasant facts. Consider the risks as well as the benefits when deciding about surgery.
The cost of your surgery should always be negotiated with your doctor. Also, investigate whether or not a payment plan is an option if you do not have the full amount available. This agreement should be considered and resolved before anything is done.
Many times patients experience significant blood loss during surgery. Bleeding is common, but excessive bleeding is not and can create complications. Post-op bleeding is also something that needs to be discussed and understood. If you bleed a lot after the procedure, it might get under the skin and you might have to have corrective surgery. Therefore, speak with your doctor to determine the bruising and loss of blood that typically results from your procedure.
You must know what to expect prior to making the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery. Apply these tips to your decision-making process and you will enter the process informed. Before you know it, you will be a whole new you!
