Enhancing your appearances can leave many people feeling nervous and excited at the same time. While getting cosmetic surgery is nothing abnormal in today’s world, those undergoing surgery for the first time should do their research and be well prepared. Here are some tips if you have decided cosmetic surgery is for you.

1. According to a recent survey, 1 in 4 people who undergo cosmetic surgery do not check their doctor’s credentials. Dont take a gamble when it comes to your health and well-being. I recommend that everyone should do as much research on the procedure they wish to have and, more importantly, only consult with a doctor that is board certified in the US. Please, don’t skip this step in your research. Take your time to find the right surgeon that puts you at ease. Beauty should not cost you your life! The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery is a good place to verify the qualifications of the doctors in your area.

2. Set realistic expectations. Having a cosmetic procedure can give you more self-confidence and make you more attractive on the outside but don’t expect it to make you perfect inside and out. Talk to your doctor about your cosmetic goals in order to reach a clear understanding of what can be accomplished through surgery.

3. Ask the doctor as many questions as possible. Be well-informed about the actual steps of the procedure, possible scars and risks, and recovery time. The doctor is there to make you feel comfortable going through the surgery. It’s also good to do your own research because it helps you to ask the right questions.

4. Be prepared to follow the doctor’s orders and plan ahead if you know that you will need help shortly after surgery. It’s normal for patients to have a someone taking care of them post operation and making sure that medication is taken on time.

5. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE…abstain from smoking prior and after surgery. This is very important and does get neglected many times. Smoking can increase risks of scar tissue, infections, and the many other dangers that come along with cigarettes.
