Cosmetic surgery should not be taken lightly. In my practice in Denver, cosmetic surgery patients always receive a detailed consultation before I am comfortable performing any procedure, no matter how small. If you are considering having an elective procedure performed, it is critically important that you research that procedure as carefully and thoroughly as you can before committing to having it performed. Remember: once performed, very few procedures can be undone.
Surgery for the Right Reasons
If you’ve just broken up with your significant other, just lost a job, or had something else traumatic happen in your life, it might not be a good time to have a breast augmentation, liposuction, or other cosmetic procedures. Many patients who have had surgery performed in haste ultimately regret the decision.
Make sure you are absolutely clear about what is involved, both before and after surgery, and have reasonable expectations about how the surgery can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. It is important to remember that cosmetic surgery will improve your appearance, not perfect it. You will also want to understand the risks, and decide if the benefits make those risks worthwhile. Recovery times also must be taken into consideration, and you must therefore modify your lifestyle after surgery accordingly.
The Right, Smart Price
No one considering cosmetic surgery should make finding the lowest price their top priority. The price range of most cosmetic procedures really doesn’t vary too much, so if you have found a surgeon that offers a procedure you want for thousands of dollars less than the median price, be very wary. If the cost of a cosmetic procedure will cause potential financial hardships, it is best to postpone it or talk with practices about the ability to finance the procedure over time.
