Although a large portion of the US population finds dissatisfaction with at least one part of their body, some are apprehensive to undergo plastic surgery for one reason or another. In this blog, the surgeons at Atlanta Plastic would like to address your personal concerns and share the reasons why you should not fear plastic surgery after COVID-19.
I don’t want to be exposed to COVID-19.
While COVID-19 has presented unprecedented challenges over the past few months, our plastic surgery offices are now open, and we are taking extra precautions to ensure your safety including a rigorous cleaning schedule of all facilities and equipment, regularly screening patients and employees for temperatures and COVID-19 symptoms, and the usage of personal protective equipment (PPE) in office. These changes are outlined in our blog, “Moving Forward: COVID-19 Care and Protocol.” Please refer to this resource before attending any appointment in our office.
I’m scared of surgical complications.
Every surgery incurs some risk. Statistically, however, complications are rare. Much of the fear of plastic surgery is unfounded. The more educational research you do about the particular procedure you’re interested in, the more you will become comfortable with your procedure. Furthermore, talking to plastic surgeons will also help relieve some of your anxiety.
Plastic surgery seems expensive.
In short, with plastic surgery, you get what you pay for. Many patients learn that plastic surgery is more approachable than they expected. To get a good estimate, you should schedule a consultation with one of our experienced plastic surgeons. You should be skeptical of any surgeon who has incredibly low prices, little to no reviews, or no social media presence. You want to be sure your plastic surgeon is knowledgeable and thoroughly understands your aesthetic vision. Keep in mind that there are financing options available for those who are interested.
I’m worried I won’t look like myself.
This is a common concern among patients. While you may want to enhance your look, we understand and consider your aesthetic preferences. We can tailor your surgery to reach your goals of subtle aesthetic improvement while maintaining your natural look.
