Surgery is always your decision, so being part of the planning process is undoubtedly an important aspect. You must ensure that you’re taking responsibility for your health and your decisions.
You must enter into this decision knowing that surgery involves time for planning and recovery, and you must be realistic in your expectations – not everyone will achieve the same results from the same operation.
You also must understand that surgery does come with potential risks and complications. Existing medical problems and smoking increases your risk of complications. Your procedure cannot be reversed. Pain, bruising and swelling can be expected.
