Cosmetic surgery has improved a lot in recent years. While it used to involve a long period of recovery, and often provide mediocre results, nowadays it has become simpler than ever. However, that doesn’t mean that the decision to have cosmetic surgery should be taken lightly. Here are some things you should do before you go under the knife.
- Ask lots of questions
It’s important to know what you’re getting into when it comes to cosmetic surgery. Whether you’re having nose surgery (called เสริมจมูกสวย in Thai) or some liposuction, you should ask a lot of questions, including:
- How long will recovery be?
- What’s involved in the procedure?
- How can I prepare for surgery?
- What are the risks?
A reputable surgeon will be happy to spend time explaining the process to you and answer any questions before you commit to anything.
- Consider the costs
Cosmetic surgery isn’t cheap. While some procedures are pricier than others, even some simple surgeries can be costly. You should think about the costs and find out what the price includes, for example, is there aftercare and will you get follow up consultations?
- Think about whether it’s necessary
Even cosmetic surgeons will tell you to think very carefully before going under the knife. There are risks involved with any sort of procedure, and so you may want to look at simple options before you have a major surgery. For example, would losing weight, exercise or fillers make you feel better about yourself or improve your looks? It’s important to try small things first rather than jumping into surgery.
- Find a reputable clinic
Perhaps one of the most important things to do is to check the clinic is reputable. You should do some research into the governing bodies in your area and check the surgeons are qualified and experienced, so can take on your case. This helps reduce the risk of something going wrong and ensures that if there is a problem, the medical team will know what to do to deal with it.
Having cosmetic surgery is not something to take lightly, and there are ways you can protect yourself from harm if you decide to go ahead. Make sure you have the best possible surgeon, even if it costs a little more, as this will help protect you from harm. Spend time doing your research and having a serious think about whether this type of procedure is right for you. That way, you can look forward to the procedure and get the best possible chance of good results.
