How To Plan Your Cosmetic Surgery
Due to the novel coronavirus, most of us are experiencing home isolation which has allowed us to enter into a reflective state, and to re-examine certain aspects of our life that we’ve been putting off. Planning for the upcoming months, we can begin to outline all of our goals and personal work that we wish to achieve. Goals don’t always have to be financial or work-related goals, they don’t have to fit into the mold of buying a new house or purchasing a new car- oftentimes, goals can simply mean strengthening our minds and identifying with aspects of ourselves that we wish to improve. Goals can also indicate physical triumphs, such as fitness goals and body enhancements that could have a significantly positive effect on our self-image and provide us with an enhanced self-love experience.
So with all of this extra time on our hands during COVID 19, now is the perfect opportunity to think about what kind of manifestations we would like to focus on. In terms of our physicalities, we’ve been faced with ample time at home to face ourselves in the mirror (hypothetically and realistically) and see how we can improve ourselves. For some, that means improving our health by going to the gym more (when quarantines are lifted), eating healthier and developing a deeper yoga practice. For others, it means finally going through with that rhinoplasty surgery that they’ve been waiting their whole lives for, but have been too nervous to undertake. For others, it could look like getting a new haircut that makes them feel fresh and new, while for some it’s getting a facial that leaves them feeling rejuvenated and more youthful. Regardless of what visions you may have, it’s important to know that all of them are valid, unique and appreciated. So, if cosmetic surgery is your version of self-love, beautification, and betterment, it’s time to own. During these unprecedented times, how can you use your home isolation wisely to plan for a future surgery or treatment? Below are some helpful recommendations to consider during this time.
Do Your Research!
First and foremost, going into any cosmetic treatment or surgery the most important thing you can do, is your research. Utilize the vast capabilities of the internet to look up what other patients have been through, what the relative cost of your chosen treatment was and other such crucial information. How expensive or affordable is your chosen surgery? Is it painful or painless? what was the recovery time? All of these factors should be carefully considered and thought out before committing to such an undertaking. Cosmetic treatments and enhancements should work with your life, not against them. Your work and personal schedule and the treatment’s recommended recovery time should be considered.
Secondly, knowing your doctor is very crucial in this whole process. Perhaps the most important facet of the success of your cosmetic treatment depends on the doctor that you choose. Every plastic surgeon/cosmetic doctor has their own strengths and their weaknesses. Some doctors specialize in certain treatments and are well-known for their work with surgeries like rhinoplasty for men, while others specialize in things like non-surgical eyelid lifts or facelifts or dimpled chin surgery or liposuction treatments. Doing your research and seeing your doctor’s unique artistic choices and capabilities are very important. Especially in Los Angeles where there are so many available plastic surgeons, it’s critical that you choose wisely.
How much will this all cost me? The next thing that you should look into is the relative cost of your intended treatment or surgery. While specific plastic surgery treatments tend to have similar Nationwide prices it can vary slightly from Clinic to Clinic. Do your research and see how much your desired enhancement will wind up costing. Also important to know is whether the facility that you plan to visit offers finance options and payment plans because that could be a deal-breaker for you depending on your financial situation. You never want to get into anything before knowing how much it’s actually going to cost!
Recovery time is an integral part of any cosmetic treatment no matter the size. Of course, depending on what kind of cosmetic enhancement you receive, the recovery time will vary. Though while the time may vary, it is important that you understand your doctor’s recommendations and also read testimonials from past clients who can talk about the post-treatment process and how it was for them. You should definitely schedule a solid chunk of your annual sick time from work for more extensive surgeries in order to fully recover and not strain yourself. There can be a few uncomfortable complications depending on the surgery if you don’t follow through with the doctor’s recommendations for post-treatment. By doing your research, talking to friends or colleagues that have had similar work done, speaking with your doctor and reading testimonials should well-inform you before initiating your treatment.
