Are you thinking about undergoing a cosmetic procedure like eyelid surgery or tummy tuck, but find that fears are holding you back? You are not alone. Many people have concerns and fears when it comes to plastic surgery. But the team at The Plastic Surgery Center wants to put some of those fears to rest. Read on as we discuss common fears and provide honest information to help you feel more comfortable.
I am putting my safety and well-being at risk.
Any surgical procedure comes with risks. Selecting a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon and having your surgery performed in an accredited facility significantly reduces the likelihood that something will go wrong during or after your procedure. Following all of your surgeon’s pre- and post-op instructions is also essential to minimizing the risks.
I will be in pain.
No one likes to think about being in pain. Advances in pain management make it very manageable to recover from surgery without significant pain. Your surgeon will prescribe safe medication to take during the post-op period to help you stay comfortable.
I will have large, noticeable scars.
Your surgeon will do his or her best to minimize the visibility of your scarring to the extent possible. For procedures like eyelid surgery, this entails placing the incisions in the natural folds and creases of the eyelid skin. For tummy tuck, this involves placing the incision low enough on the abdomen to hide scarring under a pair of underwear or a bikini bottom.
I won’t see the results I want.
To get the results you want, it is crucial to select a surgeon with the right training and experience. You should have good communication with your surgeon and candidly discuss your desired outcomes during your initial consultation. Your surgeon can explain whether your expectations are realistic and if so, explain step by step how to achieve your goals.
I can’t afford it.
Cost is a consideration, but it shouldn’t interfere with your cosmetic goals. Plastic surgery financing makes it possible for qualified candidates to split the cost of surgery into affordable monthly payments.
