Being well-informed about your cosmetic surgery procedure is the first step toward ensuring a positive experience.* There are three questions you should ask your Denver liposuction surgeon before booking the appointment.
1. What Types of Liposuction Do You Offer?
There are a few different methods available for performing liposuction in Denver, and it’s good to know which one your surgeon endorses. There may be options that have different healing times, be less invasive or be more appropriate for treating the areas which you would like treated.* Do your research, and know your options.
2. Am I a Good Candidate?
Check with your surgeon to make sure lipo will be the right choice for you. Liposuction can be great for treating small trouble spots* like ‘love handles,’ but is not a substitute for weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. Check with your surgeon to make sure liposuction is the right option for you.
3. What Will My Recovery/Results Look Like?
Studies show that patients who go into cosmetic procedures with realistic expectations are happier with the results.* Discuss the reality of your procedure with your surgeon so that you know exactly what to expect.* You should also ask about the recovery process so that you’re prepared. Although liposuction is cosmetic, it is still a type of surgery and some patients feel sore or run down for a day or two afterward.* Ask your surgeon how much time you should plan on setting aside for recovery.
Above all, you want your time with your surgeon to be a positive one, both during the procedure and in the results. Take charge of your own health care choices, and make sure you get the experience that’s right for you.
