Whether you are getting a facelift or a rhinoplasty, you may be a little bit anxious about your upcoming procedure. It’s normal to have a lot of questions about what you can expect from surgery. To help you feel a little calmer, we have created a list of some frequently asked questions.
Am I A Good Candidate For Cosmetic Surgery?
Typically, patients who are in good general health make good candidates for cosmetic surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Smith, he will discuss your goals, medical history, and concerns in order to determine whether or not you will be a suitable candidate for surgery.
What is the Ideal Age for Cosmetic Surgery?
There isn’t a definitive rule as to what age is ideal for cosmetic surgery. Typically, Dr. Smith only does surgeries on patients who are over 18 but during your consultation, he will be able to determine whether or not you are the right age.
What is the recovery from cosmetic surgery like?
Unfortunately, we can’t say what kind of pain you will experience because every patient tolerates pain in a different way. Depending on what kind of surgery you have, will also determine what your recovery will look like. After surgery, Dr. Smith will prescribe you with the appropriate pain medication to help minimize discomfort.
How Do I Know I Have Found the Right Surgeon?
The American Board of Plastic Surgeons recommends that patients only get cosmetic surgery done by a board certified surgeon. When you get surgery done from Dr. Smith, you can rest assured that you’re in good hands. Not only is he board certified but people travel from Oakhurst and East Brunswick just to see Dr. Smith.
