How can I prepare for cosmetic surgery?

Deciding to have cosmetic surgery is a big deal – but once you have made the decision, there are certain things you can do to prepare both body and mind for the journey ahead.

1. Find a cosmetic surgeon you trust:

Ffeeling that you are in safe hands is key to a positive cosmetic surgery experience. Choose a surgeon who meets the professional criteria (namely being on the GMC’s Specialist Register of Plastic Surgeons and a member of BAAPS or BAPRAS) and you can have confidence in their surgical skill. You also need to feel that you can ask limitless questions, that you get honest answers, and that you are under no pressure to commit – if you don’t feel this way, it is a good idea to reconsider your choice in cosmetic surgeon.

2. Make the most of your cosmetic surgery consultation:

This is your opportunity to find out all you need to know about the procedure, including side effects, preparation and what the recovery is like. Mr Sudip Ghosh advises potential patients to prepare a list of questions to ask at his Milton Keynes cosmetic surgery clinic so that they don’t forget anything. Many people find it useful to bring a friend to take notes or prompt you to ask anything you have forgotten.

3. Plan ahead:

When you come home from hospital after your cosmetic surgery, you will not feel like doing much initially. Think about the practicalities: organise someone to help you in those first few days, fill the fridge and freezer, clear your diary and delegate duties. During your cosmetic surgery consultation, Milton Keynes-based surgeon Mr Sudip Ghosh will describe how you should expect to feel after your surgery.

4. Get into your best shape:

The better health you are in, the more able your body is to cope with the stresses of surgery. Eat well, exercise and minimise stress where possible.
