Questions to Ask Yourself before Cosmetic Surgery

If you suffer from self-esteem issues caused by the shape of your body or seek to refine some facial features, you may have already considered undergoing cosmetic surgery. After all, cosmetic surgery has helped so many people regain confidence that leads to more professional and personal success and a better quality of life.

Before you agree to go under the knife, however, you should carefully consider all your options. Meet with a cosmetic surgeon beforehand to discuss the procedures, answer your questions and concerns. After that initial consultation, ask yourself the following questions:

“Have I found the right doctor?”

The “right” doctor should never be based on the price tag. During your initial visit, do not be afraid to ask your doctor where he or she has studied. When you arrive home, browse the web to be certain your surgeon is board certified and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

“Can I afford this procedure?”

The answer to this question goes beyond the depth of your checking account. It is also about taking time off work to recover, sacrificing some activities for a while and relying on family or friends to assist during recovery, which may also require a few days off from work. You’ll have to be mindful of all of these aspects and you’ll need to be sure that you can afford to take the time off work to allow your body to heal properly.
