What Kind Of Expectations Do You Have About Surgery
July 12, 2013
What are your expectations?
This is a complex question. All patients come to a plastic surgeons office with expectations of how they will be changed, both physically and in other aspects of their lives. Managing these expectations is an integral part of the preoperative process. Viewing before and after pictures allows you to see previous patients that represent typical results. Talking with loved ones who know you well about the changes you are contemplating can also be very helpful. You may reveal to them expectations of how the surgery may impact certain areas of your life such as work, family or social life.
