What is the right age for cosmetic surgery?
There’s no hard and fast rule as to the right age for cosmetic surgery. Our approach is to evaluate each cosmetic surgery patient on a case-by-case basis. During a consultation, your surgeon will take into account individual factors, such as your unique body type, size and age.
Am I a good candidate for cosmetic surgery?
Individuals in good general health are typically good candidates for cosmetic surgery. It is very important for prospective patients to have realistic expectations for their surgery results. During your consultation with your cosmetic surgeon, it is important to openly discuss your previous medical history, cosmetic surgery goals and any concerns you have so that your surgeon can make an informed and realistic assessment about your candidacy for cosmetic surgery.
Is cosmetic surgery safe?
As with all surgical procedures, there is some level of risk. To reduce your chances of complications, it is important that you follow all of your doctor’s pre- and post-operative instructions carefully, and thoroughly discuss any and all medical conditions with your doctor prior to your procedure. This way, you’ll be sure you and your cosmetic surgeon are prepared and that your body is appropriately cared for before, during and after surgery.
Is cosmetic surgery covered by insurance?
If the surgery is for reconstructive purposes, insurance may cover your procedure. For cosmetic surgeries, insurance is usually not involved. Your surgeon can help you determine if, and to what extent, insurance will be able to help.
