How do I know if cosmetic surgery is right for me?

Making the decision to have cosmetic surgery is not an easy one, and not one to be taken lightly. It can produce some very pleasing results, but it should be recognised from the off that the process involves not just a financial commitment but a physical and emotional one, too. At Mr Sudip Ghosh’s Milton Keynes cosmetic surgery clinic, he sees many patients who are nervous about their decision to commit. Here are four tips to help you evaluate if you are ready.

1. Do your cosmetic surgery research.

Find out as much as you can about the journey ahead. Before you can imagine you will feel about the process, you need to know what is involved.

2. Ask yourself some difficult questions.

To ensure you are having cosmetic surgery for the right reasons, give yourself a grilling. Are you confident you are doing it to please only yourself? Are you unrealistically expecting cosmetic surgery to solve all of your problems? Are you prepared to take time out to recover?

3. Talk to someone who knows you.

Having cosmetic surgery is a very personal thing, and it must only be you who makes any decision, but you may find it useful discussing with someone who knows you as they are likely to ask the right questions. If you don’t wish to share it with friends of family, talk to your GP for informed but impartial advice.

4. Talk to a surgeon you trust.

Your cosmetic surgery consultation is your chance to meet your surgeon and to establish a rapport. Milton Keynes-based surgeon Mr Sudip Ghosh believes it is imperative that there is trust between surgeon and patient, that a cosmetic surgeon gives candid advice, and that the patient feels able to ask as many questions as they need – and, crucially, that there be absolutely no pressure to commit.
