Bad Plastic Surgery Experience? Here’s How to Fix That…

Remember the first time you walked into a plastic surgery office? Perhaps you felt nervous, hopeful, and vulnerable all at once. Trusting someone to make changes to the shape of your body — the results of which will also shape your body image — can feel nerve-racking. And at the same time, the prospect of feeling more comfortable and confident in your own skin is exciting! 

While results can vary depending on the surgeon and procedure, there are so many benefits of plastic surgery when done properly. Here are just a few:

  • Increased self-confidence
  • More youthful appearance
  • Increased physical comfort  
  • Fitting better into your own skin after extensive weight loss 

So, what if you’ve already had a procedure or begun working with a plastic surgeon, and you’re not happy with your results? 

Choosing the Right Surgeon

Choosing the right surgeon to entrust with your plastic surgery is crucial. Unfortunately, some surgeons may not have robust experience and expertise for the procedure you selected. It’s best to make sure that the surgeon you work with is: 

  • Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
  • Highly experienced with the procedure you want
  • Well-reviewed by former patients
  • Attentive to your needs and desired results
  • Familiar with using the latest techniques and technology

Choosing the Right Procedure

Unfortunately, sometimes patients undergo surgeries they’re not the best candidates for or that don’t address their primary concerns. That’s why it’s also essential to choose the right procedure for your unique needs. 

A surgeon interested in best serving you should take the time to learn about your concerns, goals, and overall health. Then, with those things in mind, you can decide together which procedure or procedures are the best fit.
