Cosmetic surgery can be a wonderful way to improve your looks and self-esteem. If you’re considering any procedures, here are a few things you should think about before deciding to make a permanent change:

Bring in pictures – Clip out photos from magazines of what you’re envisioning. Your doctor can’t read your mind, so it’s helpful for them if you bring in concrete examples of what you think looks good. Remember that everyone has different tastes, and you want to make sure yours are communicated to your physician.

Do it for yourself – Don’t make a drastic physical change for anybody but yourself. Take some time and consider why you want a certain procedure. You want to make sure you’ll feel good about your decision even years later.

Don’t go overboard – Too much cosmetic surgery doesn’t look good on anyone. Consult trusted friends and your doctor to see how far you want to go, because you might not need to make any change at all.

Know the recovery period – Be sure you’re aware of what the recovery for a procedure entails so you can plan accordingly and take time off from work if needed.

Your surgeon must be board-certified – For safe procedures and satisfactory results, you should only consult with a board certified  plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Don’t be shy about asking doctors about their experiences and certifications. They’ll be expecting you to ask, and more than likely will be pleased to share information with you about what makes them qualified to treat you.

Are you considering a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck is a great option for removing excess fat and skin. The procedure can also restore weakened or separated muscles creating a more appealing abdominal profile.

Although the tummy tuck can achieve desired results, it’s important to note that it is not ideal for everyone:

A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or a regular exercise regimen.

The results of the surgery are permanent, but will not withstand significant fluctuations in weight. Therefore, if individuals are considering future pregnancies or weight loss, they should not undergo the surgery until a later date.

A tummy tuck cannot correct stretch marks. However, if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be removed—generally those treated areas below the belly button—they may disappear.
