Plastic Surgery Setting Realistic Expectations – Meeting The Desired Results

One of the most difficult aspects of having an elective cosmetic surgery procedure is setting realistic expectations. Even if you are truly informed, and even quite the surgery veteran, being caught up in overly-enthusiastic expectations is a serious, if not dangerous, issue. The goal is for improvement, not perfection. And while any improvement is a plus, we’re not exactly willing to dish out thousands and thousands of dollars to have slight improvement, are we?

Many times, subtle improvements are very beneficial to the overall goal. The overall goal being achievement of a more attractive, or younger-looking appearance. Sometimes all we truly need are subtle changes. I have had several procedures that produced very subtle improvement where significant changes would have taken away from my appearance, not added to them.

Expecting huge changes without considerable structure work is a problem I often notice with those trying to completely change their appearance. People who are attempting to significantly alter their appearance from say a round, undefined face, to a chiseled, angular face cannot get there without significant work. Work which will cause extended periods of swelling and change. This is setting oneself up for a long period of recovery and possible depression. Know this before going in.

Setting yourself up for failure in the form of over-expectation can trigger you into depression regardless if the reality is you are, in fact, improved! The nature of surgery is such that you become accustomed to the positive changes and then start focusing on the not-so-desired attributes. It happens a lot more than you’d think. A similar issue is becoming accustomed to the changes with augmentation procedures, thereby talking yourself into thinking there is no significant difference whatsoever. This is a problem often see with lip augmentation, facial fat grafting and breast augmentation. The best way around this is to compare pre- and post-operative photos.

The last issue, which is the most dangerous, can be Body Dysmorphic Disorder, or BDD for short. BDD is a disorder which causes great suffering to the patient. They feel their appearance is severely unattractive as compared to others and can surface in the form of eating disorders or trigger extensive body modification. BDD is a disorder which affects many people who seek out plastic surgery. The most common procedure for persons with BDD is often rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery. More males tend to have BDD than females, making up a good percentage of rhinoplasty patients affected by the disorder. Satisfcation is often elusive in this patient type.

Have I ever been disappointed after cosmetic surgery procedure? Yes, of course. With and without reason. It will sneak up on you without warning or be as obvious to another as it is to you. Quite frankly, plastic surgery can be like playing craps. The odds can be slim if you don’t conduct your own research and prepare for the procedure, but when it pays off, it pays off big. Be sure you do your part in increasing your odds of satisfaction. Please take your time when researching a procedure. Know what to expect and what can be realistically achieved by having it. Don’t think it will change you into supermodel. Plastic surgery is about improvement, not complete transformation—unless of course you are having considerable surgery. Shows like Extreme Makeover and The Swan can mislead the average patient into thinking a single or even three procedures can change one into the next top model. Be careful. Be safe. Be sensible.
