How to Mentally Prepare the Night before your Plastic Surgery

preparing for plastic surgery

Having plastic surgery performed is an exciting process for most patients. Being well-prepared beforehand in a mental and physical capacity though, will ensure that your procedure and recovery goes as smoothly as possible. Below are some tips to help you prepare mentally and emotionally right before having your procedure performed.

Ensure that you are Fully Educated

Although most forms of plastic surgery are minimally invasive nowadays, it is still surgery after all – which means that you could find yourself feeling a little stressed and pensive beforehand. However, the night before your surgery is not the time to be doing research about the procedure(s) you will be having done in the morning. This will only cause you to start second-guessing whether you should have surgery performed or not and thinking about every little thing that ‘could go wrong ‘– which will in turn cause even more stress. Rest assured that you already have all of the information you need from your surgeon and you will be well on your way to feeling calm.

Selfie Plastic Surgery

Survey results have shown that the rise of selfie photos has played a significant role in the increasing amount of plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures being performed each year. It’s been suggested that this could be due to the fact that patients have become hyper aware of even the smallest flaws in their looks thanks to increasing social media usage.

Sharp Rise in Procedures being performed

A poll compiled by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery noted that one out of three respondents out of a pool of 2,700 of its members noted a sharp increase in the amount of procedure requests being logged due to patients’ social-media awareness. Procedures like hair transplants, rhinoplasty and eyelid surgery were among more popular options, rising by 10%, 7% and 6% respectively. Dr. Sam Rizk, a plastic surgeon in New York, said in a Reuter’s interview, “There has been a 25% increase over the past year and a half to two years. That is very significant.
