Emotion Check 101: How to Mentally Prepare Yourself for Plastic Surgery

I’m sure you’re having a lot of jumbled and conflicting thoughts after going for your initial consultation.

But before you make a decision that could change the course of your life, here are some tips you need to remember:

Keep your expectations manageable

No matter how excited you may be, keep your expectations of the outcome realistic. Your surgeon should give you clarity on what to expect after surgery.

Know your WHY

Your resolve might waiver as you wait for your schedule, but remembering the reason why you want to get plastic surgery can keep you on the right track. You might even want to post your BEFORE photo on the mirror just to remind yourself why you want to change.

Brace yourself for recovery

Cosmetic surgery does not stop at the operating table. Whether it’s a plus-size tummy tuck or BBL, you have to follow your surgeon’s instructions down to the letter to ensure the best results. Healing takes time, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t see the results you want right away.

Keep a journal

Writing can help you put things in perspective, making sure within yourself that you’re doing the right thing. Remember to focus on the PRESENT and FUTURE, not your past experiences.

Don’t rush your decision

Getting plastic surgery is a life-changing move. Take all the time you need to think things over and don’t let other people sway your decision.
