Plastic surgeons know healthy patients have more successful surgery outcomes. That’s why they often decline to operate on a patient who is obese or one who engages in risky habits like smoking. Such patients face greater risks and complications like delayed healing, scars, and other issues.
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 Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we want our patients to have the best surgical experience possible, so we ask them to focus on being healthy first. The ideal patient refrains from smoking or using illegal drugs, maintains a stable weight, and has realistic expectations about cosmetic surgery.
