What to ask the surgeon before deciding on plastic surgery?

Thousands of people are dissatisfied with their bodies and therefore want to change, often resorting to plastic surgery. And with the subject increasingly in evidence, the plastic surgeon Paulo Hypacio, specialist in plastic surgery by the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery (SBCP), Member the American Society of Plastic Surgeons warns about what to ask the surgeon before the procedure.
“Consultation with the surgeon is the first step towards successful surgery. The surgeon must answer about the possible risks involved, the place where the procedure will be performed, the type of anesthesia that will be used, and how the preoperative should be, ”said Paulo.
It is worth mentioning that in any type of surgical intervention there may be some type of complication. However, a detailed preoperative assessment with laboratory and cardiac exams in order, these risks are minimized.
The doctor also says that it is necessary to communicate to the surgeon all the medications that the patient is taking. “Vitamins and even dietary supplements can interfere with the surgical process,” he said. Before surgery, it is necessary to stop the birth control pill, if possible, a month in advance, and if the patient smokes, the ideal is that he/she should not smoke for at least 1 month before the surgery.
The surgeon remembers that in any surgical procedure where there is a trauma to the tissue, a scar is left. However, in most cases, it is possible to place these scars in discreet locations.

With regard to the result, the doctor reveals that the patient arrives at the office with expectations of what she will look like after the surgery and the surgeon must make clear the possibilities of meeting the patient’s wishes. “Plastic surgery aims to improve patients’ self-esteem and well-being, the plastic surgeon should never sell false illusions”, concluded Paulo Hypacio.
