Below are the top 10 common questions about cosmetic surgery.

1. Which is the Right Age for Cosmetic Surgery?

There is no specific age for cosmetic surgery. However, certain procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentation, dermabrasion, and nose jobs are most common with young patients. On the other hand, older people seek a brow lift, eyelid lift, or facelift procedure.

However, there are other factors that your doctor will have to consider before the surgery, including your bone structure, body size, type, age, and overall body health.

2. Do I Qualify as a Cosmetic Surgery Candidate?

Most people with overall good health could be good candidates for plastic surgery procedures. However, patients suffering from depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and most smokers cannot benefit from cosmetic surgery.

Additionally, your doctor will help you set realistic expectations before the procedure.

3. How Safe is Cosmetic Surgery?

Typically, most surgical procedures have some risks. Nevertheless, with a qualified surgeon, you can be sure to expect better results with minimal risks. The vast experience helps Dr. Berman to offer all our patients at Berman Plastic Surgery & Spa the best results without any complications. Additionally, be sure to follow all instructions as directed by your doctor.

4. Where Can I Have My Cosmetic Procedure?

If you consider having cosmetic surgery, it is crucial to note that your procedure depends on the facility you choose. Berman Plastic Surgery & Spa is an accredited outpatient facility that you can choose for your surgery.

5. How to Prepare for the Plastic Surgery

If you have scheduled cosmetic surgery, you need to prepare physically and mentally for the best results. The process begins with a doctor consultation where you discuss the entire cosmetic procedure. Your doctor will advise you accordingly to help you attain a successful outcome.

6. Are There Alternatives to Cosmetic Surgery?

Patients who are not ready for surgery can opt for several available injectable fillers. However, it is important to note that the alternatives only offer you temporary results.

7. What Does a Board-Certified Surgeon Mean?

While any medical doctor can perform surgery, board certification will help you know your doctor’s knowledge and skills. Dr. Berman is a double-board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience.

8. Is Cosmetic Surgery an Outpatient Procedure?

Most cosmetic procedures can be successfully done in an outpatient facility. However, you might need to stay overnight in case of any complications during the procedure.

9. What Should I Do After My Surgery?

Following your surgery, be sure to follow all instructions from your doctor. This may include avoiding smoking and any drug having anticoagulation or aspirin, among other measures.

10. Do Medical Insurance Cover For Cosmetic Procedures?

Patients requiring reconstructive surgery, for instance, as a result of an accident, might benefit from their medical insurance coverage. Nevertheless, for general cosmetic surgery, patients have to pay from their pockets.
