Cosmetic Surgery Overview

Cosmetic surgery and procedures reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve appearance and self-esteem. While it might seem like the easiest way to shave years off your appearance or improve your physique, cosmetic surgery does have risks and limitations, and results are permanent. Therefore, it’s crucial that you are completely sure about wanting to go ahead.

If you're thinking about cosmetic surgery, here are some factors to consider:

  • Your expectations: Expect improvement, not perfection. Being unhappy with something about your appearance, such as a large nose, small breasts, wrinkles, or fat around your belly is a common reason for choosing to have cosmetic surgery. For people who are unhappy with their overall appearance rather than just a certain part of their appearance, cosmetic surgery is probably not the answer.
  • Expense: The cost of cosmetic surgery varies depending on the procedure. Because it is elective, cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance. Also, consider the cost of any follow-up care or additional corrective procedures.
  • Risks: Dissatisfaction is possible after any type of cosmetic surgery. Surgical complications are possible, too — including excessive bleeding or infection at the surgical site. Thoroughly discuss all potential risks and complications with your doctor before undergoing surgery.
  • Recovery: You might need days, weeks or even months to recover after cosmetic surgery. Understand the physical effects that might be part of your recovery, as well as how the surgery might affect aspects of your personal and professional life.
  • Psychological changes: Your self-esteem might improve after cosmetic surgery, but cosmetic surgery isn't likely to relieve depression or other mental health conditions. Healthy individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations are appropriate candidates for cosmetic procedures.
