Cosmetic Surgery Facelifts - Choosing The Correct Cosmetic Surgery Treatment - Articles Surfing
The first and most important step in choosing the cosmetic surgery treatment that you feel is right for you is research. Speak to your doctor and frankly outline your wants and expectations.
Fear of the procedure itself it also a major determining factor, along with recovery time and financial issues that influence a person's choice of treatment.
While reading up on different surgery techniques, you will notice that some procedures appear riskier than others do. This is generally just an appearance and very misleading. A point in example is the comparison between a liposuction procedure and a tummy tuck operation. The former seems like a scary, invasive technique while the latter sounds like a minor procedure. However, the truth is quite the opposite. Tummy tucks involve major incisions and scaring whereas liposuction leaves behind only tiny reminders of the surgery.
Knowing what you want
When you go for consultation with a cosmetic surgeon, he will normally place a mirror in your hand and ask you to minutely detail your issues with your appearance. Your expectations from the surgery are best explained thoroughly at this initial point. If there is something about your face or body that bothers you, you must make it clear now. Talk to the surgeon and spell out exactly what you need changed and what your expectations are.
Before you sit with the doctor, write down any queries you have, or anything you wish to discuss with the doctor. Write down what he says, so that you have a handy reference for later.
When the doctor discusses the procedure with you, be sure to ask him to map the procedure in your case so that you know what you are in for in all detail.
If you have extremely high expectations from the operation, you may be in for a disappointment. Each surgical treatment has its own limitation. Doctors cannot give you the face of a superstar through surgery.
Each person's skin type, its elasticity, bone shape and medical history influence the results of the surgery. You individual healing pattern will also determine the way your face or body shows results. As a result, just because a friend or colleague looks great after a particular procedure, doesn't mean that you'll look great following that as well. You have to deal with facts from day one o avoid a severe disappointment.
A good piece of advice is to make sure you ask your doctor practical questions about the surgery. Clear out issues with fees, payment structure and appointments for various consultations. Speak to the nurse or manager as well to clear out questions regarding such formalities.
Cosmetic surgery sometimes needs to be viewed holistically to ensure that the best results are achieved. It is not always possible to address one area, ignore the surrounding area, and yet arrive at a good-looking result. For example, a person undergoing an eyelid lift may also need brow lifting to achieve an overall pleasing effect. Although doctors generally do mention such issues, it is up to you, the patient to understand and accept the requirements enabling the doctor to give you the bet he can and allow you to look into the mirror with wonder.
It is best to keep in mind that beautifying one aspect of your face, may leave the others stand out and make an unflattering picture of your face, much like painting only one spot on a wall and letting the rest be.
Overall, study, read up and be prepared for practical results. With these taped to your conscious as bottom lines, you will choose the right treatment and come out of it beautiful.
