Things to Consider Before Having Cosmetic Surgery


Cosmetic surgery is elective surgery that is undertaken by the patient in order to improve their physical appearance solely for aesthetic purposes. Although cosmetic surgery isn’t considered to be essential in medical terms, for many people who choose to undergo this type of surgery, the emotional benefits are huge. Cosmetic surgery can visually improve areas that the individual may be unhappy with, which may have previously caused them stress or embarrassment. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Things to Consider Before Having Cosmetic Surgery

Things to Consider Before Having Cosmetic Surgery
 Do it for the right reasons Cosmetic surgery is
elective and can be major surgery so you
shouldnt make a rash decision or do it for the
wrong reasons. Your choice to have cosmetic
surgery should be considered and be because you
want to improve an area of your body that youre
not happy with and feel more confident with the
way you look. Cosmetic surgery may improve your
self-esteem and confidence but it should not be
considered if youre pinning your hopes on it
changing and improving other elements of your
Do your research Its important to research your
cosmetic surgeon and the clinic or hospital
setting where they operate. Dont just accept
their claims for excellence of care. For peace of
mind its important to choose a consultant who
is GMC registered and on the GMC specialist
register for plastic surgery, holds an FRCS or
FRCS in plastic surgery qualification, works or
has worked as an NHS consultant plastic surgeon
and, holds membership for an organisation like
Have realistic expectations Cosmetic surgery
aims to improve a body part that youre not
content with and potentially improve your
self-esteem. Your consultant will discuss with
you the realistic improvements that your chosen
cosmetic surgery can achieve for you. Every
procedure is tailored to an individual and their
specific requirements. 
Dont go overboard Your cosmetic surgeon will
aim to enhance or refine a body part to improve
your overall look whilst retaining your natural
physical characteristics so that you still look
like you.
The costs Most cosmetic surgery procedures
arent covered on the NHS or by health insurance
plans. Youll need to be aware of the total cost
of your cosmetic surgery including any follow-up
care. Some clinics offer the reassurance of
all-inclusive package prices with no hidden
extras to pay or competitive finance options to
fund your treatment.
Be prepared to follow pre and post-operative
advice If youre a smoker your cosmetic surgeon
will strongly advise you to stop smoking
altogether or at least for two to four weeks
before and after your cosmetic surgery. Smoking
significantly compromises your body's ability to
heal and recover after surgery as well as
increasing your risk of infection and other
The risks of your procedure Many cosmetic
surgery procedures are major surgery and as such
they carry the possibility of complications
occurring such as excessive bleeding or infection
at the surgical site. Your cosmetic surgeon
should discuss in detail the risks of the
specific surgery youre considering. You need to
understand these risks.
 Recovery time Your cosmetic surgeon will be
able to give an estimate of how long in general
patients take to recover from specific cosmetic
surgery. You can organise your best recovery plan
based on this information and put in place any
personal or professional measures to make your
recovery easier and more amenable.
