Plastic surgeons know healthy patients – with a stable weight, who don’t smoke – have more successful surgery outcomes. That’s why they often decline to operate on a patient who engages in unhealthy habits. Such patients face greater risks such as delayed healing, or scars.
Those interested in cosmetic and facial plastic surgery should first go through a sort of ‘lifestyle makeover,’ modifying their habits until they have reached a satisfactory state of health. At About Faces Cosmetic Surgery, we want our patients to have the best experience possible, so we ask them to focus first on being healthy. The ideal patient refrains from smoking or using illegal drugs, has a stable weight, and realistic expectations about cosmetic surgery.
