Making the right cosmetic surgery decisions

Pageantry magazine recently featured an article by Dr. Ronald Bergman highlighting the fact that, when considering cosmetic surgery, it is critically important that you take your time, find a surgeon you trust and feel comfortable with, and be realistic about your anticipated results.

Although there are stories about botched surgeries or bad reactions, this situation is not typical. In an E! TV series called Botched about this experience, supermodel Janice Dickenson was featured replacing her breast implants. Despite having a negative experience, Dickenson is still an advocate of cosmetic surgery, but only if it is done safely.

Advice we offer those preparing to undergo cosmetic surgery includes:

  • Learn about your procedure
  • Follow instructions to ensure a successful recovery
  • Select your cosmetic surgeon carefully
  • Don’t look for the cheapest deal

Possibly the most important aspect of cosmetic surgery is finding the right doctor. Make sure he or she is board certified and request to see pictures of surgeries performed. Although it may be tempting to accept the doctor with the best deal, this may not be the best decision. Cosmetic surgery is a lifelong investment and will change your body forever. This sort of procedure warrants serious consideration and would be worth spending more money on for a greater degree of security and care.

Celebrities like Kaley Cuoco, Ashely Tisdale, and Lisa Kudrow have spoken about surgeries that positively affected their careers and confidence. Ask your friends about their experiences to help you find a surgeon you can trust.
