How to manage your expectations before surgery

14. 7. 2015

From Breast Augmentation to Nose Surgery to Liposuction, millions of people are opting for Cosmetic surgery.

Before you decide on surgery, Beauty in Prague believe that you should consider the following questions:

Have you considered alternative approaches?

For many issues that have surgical solutions, there are alternatives that are based on discipline and motivation. Have you tried all of the behavioural and alternative approaches available to you, like exercise and diet? If Plastic Surgery is just an easy way for you to avoid diet and exercise, then you need to re-evaluate why you want surgery and if your expectations can be met. Also, if you are young, having surgery could be premature because you haven’t finished growing and developing.

What are your expectations?

What do you expect in terms of the surgery itself and the recovery period? What do you think will happen if the surgery is a success? What will change in your life? Think about the end result before you take such a drastic step. Will it really solve what you hope it will?

Are your expectations realistic?

Ask yourself if your expectations are pure fantasy. Will anything really be different in your life after you’ve had surgery? Are you expecting people to be more accepting of you simply because you’ve altered your appearance? Do you believe that surgery will help you gain some form of success that you perceive as unattainable otherwise? Be honest. Will this really make a positive difference in your life?

Will surgery help you reach reasonable goals?

Are there any feasible goals that surgery could help you attain, such as alleviating back pain with a breast reduction surgery? If you are expecting plastic surgery to change everything about your personality and/or self-esteem, you could be very disappointed. But if your goals will likely be reached after a medical procedure, that’s a significant consideration.

Do the positive possible medical advantages exceed the possible complications?

All medical procedures have the potential for complications. You should obtain as much information about the advantages, concerns, recovery, etc.
