Plastic surgery, when done correctly, can be very beneficial for a person who desires making a change to their body. Plastic surgery can also be extremely detrimental if the person getting the surgery does not do the necessary research or gets the surgery because someone else initiates the idea.
Does the cosmetic surgeon you are considering to perform the surgery have satisfactory malpractice insurance? Mistakes happen during surgery or even worse, something occurs that they could have foreseen. If this happens, you want to know that there is enough compensation to address problems.
Ask the prospective physician about their previous surgeries. Do they have ample experience with procedures similar to what you want? Look at before and after pictures. The most reputable doctor can only be found if research is done.
Each and every surgery has risks whether they are big or small, they are there. The patient should be fully aware of the process and all risks before undergoing surgery. Do not look over the risks.
Surgery can be expensive, everyone knows that. That being said, there is a way around it. You can ask the doctor to place you on an on-call list. This means that if a patient with a previously scheduled surgery cancel, you will be called for your surgery since the doctor and OR room and team are already scheduled. This means the doctor saves money and the money they save can be passed onto you.
As important as it is to know about the procedure and the risks, you should also know about the recovery period. Will you need someone to stay with you to help? How long will you need to take off of work? How much pain can you expect? These are all important questions that need answering.
Hopefully this information will help you if/when you are planning to get plastic surgery. Research and planning for the pre and post op scenarios is super important. New York cosmetic procedures are common, but that doesn’t mean they are free of risks.
