If you are looking to enhance your appearance and feel more confident about what you see in the mirror, you might be thinking about talking to a plastic surgeon. You may be eligible for numerous procedures that could help you reach your goals for your body. But how can you get the most out of your plastic surgery consultation? One thing you should do is ask the right questions, including the following:

What Are Your Credentials?

You are more likely to have a safe and satisfactory experience if you entrust your care to a qualified team. Feel free to ask your potential surgeon how long they have been practicing, whether they are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and the types of procedures that they are most experienced in.

What Will My Results Look Like?

Plastic surgery can provide beautiful results, but it cannot work miracles. Your doctor should set you up to have realistic expectations for what you will look like after any post-surgical swelling subsides. Most doctors have an extensive photo gallery that they use to help patients understand what various procedures are able to accomplish.

What Risks and Complications Should I Be Aware Of?

Most plastic surgery procedures are successful, and when complications occur, they are usually minor. However, in rare cases, serious and unexpected problems arise. You should ask your doctor if you have any risk factors that increase your risk of complications and what steps you can take to minimize the risk that something will go wrong.

What Should I Expect During the Recovery Process?

Each plastic surgery comes with its own average recovery time and process. You should ask your doctor how much time you should take off work, how much you need to limit your physical activity, and what else you will need to do to support your body’s healing process.

What Will It Cost?

Most cosmetic surgeries are not covered by medical insurance, so it is important that you are aware of how your procedure may affect your budget. Many procedures run at least several thousand dollars. You can ask your surgical team for an itemized estimate of the costs associated with your care. Also be sure to ask about the price of follow-up visits. If you are concerned about being able to pay for your surgery, inquire about financing options.

Your plastic surgery consultation is a huge first step toward your dream body! Prepare to ask the right questions so you can commit to your procedure with confidence.
