Choosing the Right Procedure

Does the procedure you are considering provide the improvements you want? 

When establishing realistic expectations for plastic surgery, it is important to understand the improvements the procedure can provide. For example, you might be considering liposuction when a tummy tuck is necessary. Our procedures section provides overview pages for common aesthetic plastic surgery procedures. 

Do you fully understand the procedure and possible complications? 

Make sure you understand what the procedure entails in terms of scars, recovery time and risks. Check our recovery, aftercare and complications page for more information 

Are you a good candidate for the procedure you are considering? 

Talk with the surgeon about your expected outcome to make sure that it is reasonable. It is also important for your surgeon to conduct a medical screening to determine whether you are at risk for complications. Read our Safety Considerations and ask yourself - Is plastic surgery right for me? Am I a good patient for this procedure?
