3 Things Guaranteed to Spoil Your Plastic Surgery

3 Things Guaranteed to Spoil Your Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery has certainly come a long way since the beginning. With the rise of ever less invasive procedures, many people are now looking for the right plastic surgeon to work on them. Whether it is for vanity or medical reasons, finding a doctor that fills your needs is no easy matter. But, even with a great surgeon, you have to be careful throughout the process to get the best outcome. It is only through a team effort between the doctor and patient that the chance of great results is highest. So, before you book an appointment for your plastic surgery, you need to understand different things that can ruin your surgery and how you can avoid them. Here are three things that can spoil your plastic surgery.

Not Following Instructions

Before you go in for the plastic surgery, you will have a session with your doctor to explain everything about the surgery. They will also let you know what is expected of you before and after the surgery. Ensure you follow all the instructions given to you carefully and seek clarification whenever something isn’t clear. Remember, the surgery’s success or failure depends on what you do before and after the procedure. For instance, you will receive instructions for medication and nutrition. You will learn about the adverse effects of smoking, improper exercising, and excessive alcohol. Failure to follow these instructions will affect your recovery and the results you get.

Choosing the Wrong Plastic Surgeon

With the rising popularity of plastic surgery, unqualified surgeons will inevitably continue to appear. This can make it quite difficult for a patient to find the right doctor for their surgeries. Every plastic surgeon wants to portray themself as a professional, but it is unrealistic to believe that all plastic surgeons maintain the same high standards. If you pick the wrong surgeon, you have already put yourself at a disadvantage. Therefore, you need to be careful when choosing a plastic surgeon. Take your time to interact with the surgeon and learn a few things about them. Ask about successful procedures they have performed that are similar to what you want. That way, you can make a better decision.

Unrealistic Expectations

There are numerous types of plastic surgeries available. Each procedure can help you improve your appearance and make you feel better about yourself. However, it would help if you keep your expectations realistic. Do not go for plastic surgery because you want to look like someone else. Strive to be the best you that you can be. Get your surgery for yourself, not other people.

    Hands down this is the most amazing plastic surgery office! No haggling and Dr. Jacobs will not perform a surgery if the scar exceeds the benefit. His words exactly which is exactly what I want to know ahead of time not after the surgery is done. Dr. Jacobs is a phenomenal surgeon and I trust him 150%. Felecia his nurse is as wonderful as Dr. Jacobs!!

  • I visited Dr. Johnathan Jacob's Office to see about getting a Lipoma removed from my upper left shoulder. After meeting Dr. Jacob's he discussed with me what needed to be done to remove it. I was very happy with the surgery and how good a surgeon he is. I was very satisfied with the procedure and the outcome. I was happy with his staff also they took good care of me. ???
