5 things that make you a good candidate for cosmetic surgery

The cosmetic surgery consultation has many purposes. It is the patient’s chance to meet their surgeon and decide if they feel comfortable in their care, but it is also the opportunity for patient and surgeon to discuss whether cosmetic surgery is the right choice for the individual.

1. You are in good health.

During your Warwickshire cosmetic surgery consultation, Mr Alan Park will take your full medical history before conducting a physical examination. Medical problems, a high BMI, and smoking all increase the likelihood of complications during surgery so these risks need to be evaluated.

2. You are making informed decisions.

Opting to have cosmetic surgery is a very personal choice – and only you can decide if it is right for you so you need to know the facts. If you have done your research, you should have a good idea of what to expect on the journey ahead. Mr Park encourages all patients in his Warwickshire cosmetic surgery clinic to ask as many questions as they need in order to make an informed judgement.

3. You are ready to follow your surgeon’s instructions.

Your surgeon will give you guidance about self-care in the period before and after surgery, including any medications and supplements to avoid, wearing a compression garment and avoiding certain exercises. Following this advice will make your cosmetic surgery experience a safer, more comfortable one – and will lead to the optimal results.

4. You have realistic expectations.

It is important to understand that cosmetic surgery has its limitations. Accepting that, and setting achievable goals, will lead to a more satisfied outcome.

5. You are committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

The results of your cosmetic surgery will be longer lasting if you look after yourself: maintain a stable weight and avoid ageing agents such as smoking, sun exposure and excessive alcohol.
