Plastic surgery, even the most minor one, should not be undertaken without first examining every detail of the procedure you’re contemplating and developing a set of realistic expectations. Your goal is to minimize the chances of an unexpected outcome by understanding the limitations, risks as well as the benefits.
Take into consideration your body type, your general health (everything from allergies to blood pressure, from your innate ability to heal to your tendency to scar) and your state of mind.
Spend time researching the best Board Certified surgeon you can locate. Relevant experience and solid patient references are critical. All outcomes are affected by the surgical techniques used, how your body responds and what you do (???). Know beforehand, for example, that almost all breast surgeries will result in visible scarring to one degree or another. For many women the marks fade over time and become so faint they don’t even notice. For others, the scars are more aesthetically and functionally problematic and they may choose ameliorative treatments that may include laser or other surgical interventions.
There are never any guarantees, only best-case scenarios.
Careful, compassionate pre-surgery counseling from your chosen surgeon and their staffs, will put you on the path of understanding the potential downsides and rewards. All these elements can affect the way you look and feel in your post-surgical skin.
