The term “surgery” includes everything from the anesthesia, to the operation, to postoperative recovery. Due to this, deciding if plastic surgery is right for you is usually not a straightforward math problem. In fact, there are a number of variables to consider in this decision.
Most young, healthy and well-informed patients are excellent candidates for most surgeries. Any underlying medical problems you may have, your general health and lifestyle, the “problem” being addressed, the magnitude of the surgical “solution” and the anticipated outcome all play a role in determining if plastic surgery is right for you.
Exceptional judgment, thorough preoperative evaluation, meticulous surgical technique and careful post-op management can often counter-balance any mitigating factors.
Why do you want to have surgery?
Our goal as plastic surgery specialists is to ensure that you, as a patient, have a positive life change from surgery. Your body deserves the very best care, so you should seek out a plastic surgeon who is willing to take the time to completely understand your goals and why you wish to undergo surgery.
Whether you’re looking to repair damage from an injury, ease any pain that you may be feeling or have been considering an aesthetic procedure, you may want to consider talking to a plastic surgery specialist to understand the different plastic surgery options available to you.
Conduct research on your surgery
A positive life change comes from making informed decisions about surgery, its goals and timing. Patients who research the procedure (and surgeon) in advance typically have the best surgical outcomes. Take time to research your procedure to make a smart and comfortable decision for yourself.
The time that you put in now, to learn about your condition and find the right surgeon, will pay off in the long run. Make sure that any NJ surgeon that you consider for your surgery has top qualifications, such as the required licensure, years of experience and they provide trustworthy advice.
Find the right doctor
Whether you are considering cosmetic or reconstructive plastic surgery, we believe the most important part of the process is proper doctor selection. You’re looking to find a surgeon that you feel comfortable with and whose in-person persona matches the top qualifications.
Those that are looking to get plastic surgery to look like their favorite actress are generally not a good match with us. We have found that those with realistic expectations about what plastic surgery can achieve are the ones that are the most satisfied after the surgery is completed.
Schedule a consultation
Ultimately, the best way to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for plastic surgery is to come in and talk to us about it. We offer a no-charge consultation to help patients learn about their options and determine if surgery is right for them. We can only promise an honest evaluation and recommendation.
You will be comfortable in knowing that if we felt a particular procedure was not a good decision for one of our friends or family members, we would not recommend it to you. We view the process very much as a partnership in which we share in both the risk and reward with you. We’re in this together.
Make a decision on having surgery
It’s important that as a patient, you feel secure that you are making the right decision about the procedure and your choice of surgeon. When you meet the right surgeon to help you along your journey, you’ll know.
Once we (patient and surgeon) decide to go forward together, we partner with you to achieve your desired result. From the planning stage of plastic surgery through your complete recovery, we’re on this journey together.
