Preparing the mind for surgery
As well as considering the body, it’s also important to look inside the mind. Patients need to be in the right head space for surgery and by that I mean analysing their motivations for the procedure. Ask yourself questions like, why do I want to do this?
It’s imperative to have all the facts when making a decision about surgery so I recommend my patients to do some background research so that they have a good understanding of their different options and are able to prepare thoroughly.
It’s a good idea for patients to attempt to gain a picture in their own mind of how they want to look, in terms of both shape and size so that they can communicate this image with their Doctor.
Finally, research the Doctor you are going to consult with, the Doctor is extremely vital to the outcome and each Doctor achieves different results aesthetically and has a different skill level.
