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, your body and your decisions.
You must enter into this decision knowing that plastic 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 surgical procedures.
You also must understand that plastic surgery does come with potential risks and complications. Existing medical problems and smoking increases your risk of complications. Your surgical procedure cannot be reversed. Pain, bruising and swelling of skin and surrounding tissues can be expected. Whether you are having a facial or skin procedure or breast augmentation, you will need to allow time for your body to recover after the surgical procedure has been completed.
