Like Mary suggests, I fully believe it is important for anyone considering plastic surgery to truly know what they’re getting themselves into. Fortunately, cosmetic plastic surgery is an elective surgery, meaning you have time to figure everything out. Don’t rush into anything. Take your time and allow yourself to get fully prepared both mentally and physically. Like Mary said, the first and most important step is to find the right doctor. The right doctor, should be able to answer all your questions, and explain the procedure, the recovery, and any potential risks in full. Chose a doctor your feel comfortable with and whom you feel listens to you.
