The dissatisfaction with the plastic usually happens when false expectations are created as to the result of the surgery. Some women come to the office with impossible dreams, like looking like someone famous. The best way to prevent this problem is medical consultation, where the doubts will be elucidated, the anxieties minimized and the false expectations demystified.
Do not hide anything from your doctor. The use of illicit drugs and certain medications interfere with anesthesia and can cause severe complications and even death.
You should find out what preoperative tests are needed, how long it will take for the end result to appear, and what the price will be charged.
Do not be ashamed to return to the office for further consultations as often as necessary to clarify your doubts and insecurities. You must be completely safe when you have surgery.
Studies have already proven that we never absorb everything we read or what is transmitted to us orally at once. There has to be a repetition. The patient, when going to the first appointment, is usually very excited. Even with his doubts and questions annotated, he does not write down the answers. The doctor clarifies everything, gives much information at the same time and it is normal that part of them, the patient forget. Therefore, the patient can and should return to clear his doubts. These new clarification queries, as well as the consultation to take the requested tests, should not be charged by the doctor, exactly to give more freedom to the patient.
The surgeon should explain the procedure that will be used, in what way and to what extent he can improve his appearance. Tell the place where you want to operate, whether in the hospital or in the office. The type of anesthesia that will be used. What is the recovery time? And prevent about possible risks.
