Answers to questions about cosmetic surgery
It is normal to have questions about plastic surgery. Many people want to know about the requirements for getting surgery. People also want to know if plastic surgery is painful and if it is necessary to take time off work. Patients wonder what questions to ask during the consultation as well. Get the answers to these questions.
Who is a candidate for plastic surgery?
Plastic surgeons evaluate patients to determine if they are good candidates for the procedures they have selected. However, patients can get a good idea about their eligibility beforehand. People should be in good health before undergoing plastic surgery. Also, people need to be close to or at the ideal weight for some procedures. For example, people should be close to the ideal weight to get liposuction since it is not a weight loss surgery. Instead, it is used to remove stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise.
Is plastic surgery painful?
The degree of discomfort that patients feel after the procedure depends on two things. First, people have different pain tolerances so what is uncomfortable to one person might be painful to another. Second, the type of surgery will impact the degree of pain. People who undergo minimally invasive procedures will not feel as much discomfort as those who undergo invasive procedures.
Still, it is possible to provide patients with an idea of what to expect following surgery. People should expect some discomfort following a procedure. The discomfort is normally described as an aching feeling although some people do experience more pain. Patients are given medications to help with the discomfort. Those who are concerned about recovering from cosmetic surgery should talk to the plastic surgeon about these specific procedures.
Is it necessary to take time off work?
While each procedure is different, most people will need to take a minimum of two days off work. During this time, patients will likely require assistance. Patients without physically demanding jobs can return to work sooner than those who have to lift or move a lot at work. The surgeon will discuss the length of time off work required before the procedure.
What questions should patients ask during consultations?
Patients should bring a list of questions to ask during the consultation. Patients should ask if the surgeon is board certified. Also, patients need to find out how experienced the surgeon is with the procedure they are getting. It is also wise to ask to see before and after pictures of similar procedures.
