A Few Things I Should Have Known Before Going Under the Knife

Thursday, November 5th, 2015

It is common nowadays to have your face enhanced via plastic surgery. Most women are encouraged to go under the knife to achieve the look that they dream for themselves or for even just having the nose that they never had. The women, who undergo reconstructive surgery, have increased in the past 10 years.

Getting work done on your face and on your body is risky but not totally wrong. You should just know a few things before doing so and know what you are getting yourself into. Here are a few things that will help you determine what and what not to do.

  1. Not all surgeons are skilled and qualified

Just because a surgeon had passed the board exams, doesn’t mean that he is a good or experienced plastic surgeon. You have to know how many surgeries they are doing weekly, how long they have been practicing and look for before-and-after photos to judge the quality of his work.

  1. You have to know what you want to do or to change

Never let the surgeon decide for you or what to do with your face. Tell them what you want and bring photos if necessary.

  1. Nothing’s perfect

Yep, no one is and nobody ever will be perfect. Do not let yourself be hyped by thinking that you will look perfect after the surgery. Different, yes but perfect? I don’t think so.

  1. A few regrets may come out after surgery

Regrets do come out at the end. Once you look at the mirror, there is a possibility that you may like how you used to look before the procedure.

  1. A lot of surgeons don’t care about you, they just care about the money

Keep this in mind, that nobody cares more for you than yourself. Pick the right surgeon.

  1. Depression may arise

You cannot do all the things that you used to do like going out with friends and just staying inside your home. You will also feel pain while recovering. It takes time.

  1. It takes a few months to see the result you’ve been wanting

There would be after-surgery swelling and scarring that may take a few months to heal.

  1. Surgery won’t be a solution to fix whatever problem you have in your life

Have you been dumped by your boyfriend? Do you not love your job? All of these won’t go away after your operation.  Before going under the knife, ask yourself why you’re doing it and assess your reasons so no regrets may come after your decision.

So before you go through a procedure, make sure that you know all the risks, get a trusted surgeon and be informed on how the operation should be done.
