Cosmetic (Aesthetic) Surgery

Cosmetic plastic surgery can be a powerfully positive force in a person’s psychological and emotional life. Improving your appearance can boost your self-esteem and confidence and help you to face life with a better outlook. But it probably won’t make your looks match some ideal you have. It may not change the way other people view you or treat you. And it will not magically solve all the problems or emotional issues you must deal with.

Realistic Expectations

That’s why, when you consider any form of plastic surgery, it’s important to clearly understand why you want the surgery and what you hope to gain from it. Your motivations and expectations should be realistic, and you need to discuss them honestly with your surgeon. Good rapport, open communication, and trust between patient and surgeon are among the keys to successful plastic surgery.
