If you are finally ready to get the cosmetic procedure that you have always wanted, you want to make sure that you are doing it in the safest manner. To help make sure that this happens, you will need to ask the surgeon a lot of questions about cosmetic surgery during your consultation.
How Long Will I Be Under The Knife?
It is important to make sure that you are well aware of the amount of time the surgery will take. This way, you can tell your loved ones who may be waiting in the waiting room. While there are some things that can delay the end of the surgery, it should not go over by too much time. By having a time frame in mind, your loved ones will not have to worry. It is also a good idea to know how long it will take just for your own peace of mind.
What Are The Risks?
This may be the most important question to ask during your consultation. You want to make sure that you are very much aware of all of the things that could happen while you are in surgery, during your recovery, or even years down the road. Knowing these facts are the only way you are going to be able to make an educated decision as to whether this is something that you want to go through with. Risks vary depending on the procedure, but our surgeons will be able to discuss everything in depth during your consultation.
How Long With the Healing Process Take?
You need to be able to let your employer know how much time you will need off from work. You will also need to make sure that you have a friend or family member at home with you in order to help with the kids, the pets, as well as the cooking and cleaning. Many non-surgical treatments are offered at CCLS, which require little to no recovery. However, if you are looking into surgeries such as a breast augmentation or a face lift, you will need to discuss recovery time.
What Are The Expected Results?
You cannot expect to look like a completely different person. You are still you. However, you should be able to expect an improved version of yourself. With the advancement of technology, your surgeon might be able to show computer images of what you should look like after he or she is done with your procedures.
By making sure that you are asking all of those questions about cosmetic surgery, and any others that you can think of, you will be able to feel comfortable moving forward with the process. Schedule a consultation at the Center for Cosmetic and Laser Surgery if you think cosmetic surgery is the right option for you.
