“Extremely Bad Makeovers”
Remember the “Extreme Makeover” Television series? The program heralded extreme changes in appearance following Plastic Surgery. However, many of you comment,” I don’t want to look like “ put your Hollywood Star’s name here”. Another comment: “What Plastic Surgeon make someone look “put your Hollywood Star’s name here” so bad? I listen to those comments but also wonder. Here are some of the things you should do to potentially prevent adverse outcomes when you are anticipating having cosmetic surgery.
Communicate what bothers you and the order of your concerns to your Plastic Surgeon. Be as specific as possible and possibly use photographs, digital imaging, or direct demonstration to show your Plastic Surgeon what you like and don’t like. Sometimes it is surprising what individuals want and expect. Don’t be shy or intimidated asking questions. Sometimes individuals want “extreme changes” and that should also be a major discussion between the surgeon and that individual. Favorable enhancing changes following cosmetic surgery are what everyone desires. Determining what that means for you is tantamount to successful planning and favorable outcomes. Also remember Plastic Surgery Nurses are immense assets for you in the Plastic Surgeon’s office but the planning, corrective measures and information regarding your areas of concern need to be discussed in detail with your surgeon. Communicate direct with your surgeon if you want to have the best chance of avoiding the “Extreme Makeover” less then desirable outcomes.
