How can I get the most out of my cosmetic surgery?

Having cosmetic surgery can be very rewarding but it does, naturally, require an element of investment, both financial and emotional. Here are five tips on achieving a maximum return:

1. Prepare for the consultation.

The consultation is an invaluable stage in your cosmetic surgery journey. It is not just the time when your surgeon plans the procedure, but your opportunity to find out everything you need to help you make an informed decision. Previous patients attending Mr Sudip Ghosh’s Milton Keynes cosmetic surgery clinic have found both researching ahead what is involved and bringing a prepared list of questions helpful.

2. Get yourself in the best shape before cosmetic surgery.

If you are intending to lose weight, do so before your body contouring surgery. Fluctuations in weight have an adverse effect on skin elasticity, so doing so afterwards could compromise the improvements made by cosmetic surgery. More generally, being in good shape will help your body cope better with surgery: a lower BMI reduces the risks of complication and those who are fit tend to bounce back quicker.

3. Make downtime arrangements.

Ensure your recovery time is just that: time to recover and not time to run around fulfilling your normal responsibilities. Draft in help at home if necessary, fill your freezer and clear your diary.

4. Observe your surgeon’s aftercare advice.

After your cosmetic surgery, Milton Keynes-based Mr Ghosh will send you home with comprehensive written instructions. These will include guidance on incision wound care, avoiding certain movements and exercise, how to reduce scars, and the wearing of compression garments.

5. Don’t hurry your recovery.

Your body needs time to get back to its pre-surgery self. Try to avoid enforcing a deadline or rushing the process. Allowing yourself time to heal will encourage the optimal aesthetic result – something worth waiting for.
