The decision to have cosmetic surgery is one that could change your life forever. From self-conscious to confident, we see patients’ entire view of themselves change after a cosmetic procedure like SmartLipo. For this reason, we suggest patients emotionally prepare for surgery, just as they do physically.
Research the procedure online.
While you by no means need to be an expert on the procedure you’re considering, having an idea of what’s going to happen can ease your mind and make you feel more confident in your choice.
Never shy away from asking something “embarrassing.”
In the world of cosmetic surgery, there’s no such thing as an embarrassing question. This is your body and we want to make sure you’re 100% aware of what to expect before, during, and after surgery.
Don’t trust unbelievable deals.
As they say: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It’s important to know what the average going rate for SmartLipo is because you want to make sure you’re not being taken advantage of or choosing someone who will do low quality work. If the price a surgeon gives you is far below average, they’re likely using unregulated materials and surgical techniques — two things that could jeopardize your health and results.
Choose a surgeon that makes you feel comfortable.
During your consultation, did your surgeon make you feel at ease and supported? Was he or she knowledgable and compassionate? Remember: bedside manner is just as important as surgical skill.
Have realistic expectations.
Even cosmetic surgery has its limitations. The goal of surgery should be to improve on your natural features, not achieve perfection.
Go in with clear motives.
The decision to have liposuction should be your’s and your’s alone. If you’re doing this for someone else, it’s not the right time to get surgery.
