Though it seems like everyone in the world is getting plastic surgery, they aren’t. They may be trying new products, getting Botox, or other less invasive treatments. So, before you rush out to get plastic surgery, it’s important to understand what it is that you really want. Your results may differ from someone else, and a procedure that worked well for someone’s situation may not be the best for you and your body. Keep reading for some questions to ask your plastic surgeon.

Am I a good candidate for the procedure I want? Is there another procedure better suited to me?

Finding the right procedure is almost as important as finding the right surgeon. Just because a friend had great results from a specific procedure, it doesn’t mean that you will have the same results. Your body type may be different, which could make a different procedure better suited to you.

Can I see examples of your work?

The right plastic surgeon will change your experience of your surgery, and the outcome. Everyone has a different eye for aesthetics, and so your results may be quite different between surgeons. Finding a surgeon who does great work will ensure that your results are as good as they can be.

How much will it cost?

Understanding the bill may not make much sense before you undergo your surgery, as things may change during your procedure, but it’s important to get as close as possible. Understanding the cost for the hospital, various drugs, and your surgeon will help you make the best decision for you. Prices may vary wildly between surgeons, so make sure to ask this question of every surgeon you are looking into.

How long will results last?

Some procedures are not designed to last forever, and the natural aging process will affect your future results. Understanding how much time comes along with your procedure will help you make a better decision. You may be pleased with a surgery that will not need updates, or you may enjoy knowing that a specific procedure will not be permanent.
