Preparing for Your Plastic Surgery Procedure
Are you preparing for your plastic surgery procedure? You’ve spent years looking at yourself thinking about alterations that you’d like to make to your body. Perhaps it’s those wrinkles and lines on your face. Maybe it’s that stubborn fat around your midsection. You might even be unhappy with the loose skin on your neck.

Let’s take a look!
Preparing for Your Plastic Surgery – Step 1: Selecting Your Plastic Surgeon
This is the most important step of all. Selecting the right plastic surgeon will have an impact on your experience, comfort and most importantly, your results. Don’t take this step lightly. Do your homework. Things to keep in mind as you review potential plastic surgeons are:
- Are they board-certified?
- What are their credentials?
- How long have they been performing the procedure you want?
- What are patients saying about them? (Remember, reviews are important)
- Ask to see some before and after photos of patients who have received the same procedure.
- What is their process?
- Are they committed to your safety?
You must select a plastic surgeon that you trust and are comfortable with. Do your due diligence. Ask the tough questions at the beginning. It will pay off in the long run because you’ll have an enjoyable plastic surgery experience with amazing results.
Preparing for Your Plastic Surgery –Step 2: Fully Understand Your Plastic Surgery Procedure and Experience
Once you’ve selected your trusted, board-certified plastic surgeon, it’s time to fully understand what the procedure consists of. Dr. Adibfar’s goal is to ensure all patients have an enjoyable and pleasurable experience, heal quickly and are happy with their results. That’s why it’s important to partner with a plastic surgeon that is open and honest. During the consultation phase, take this time to identify:
- The procedure’s risks and benefits,
- What the healing and recovery process consists of,
- What support you’ll receive post-procedure,
- What results can you realistically expect,
- Are there any physical restrictions after your procedure and will you need to be off work, and;
- What lifestyle changes you should make before and after the procedure
Overall, use the time before your procedure to prepare yourself mentally and physically for your journey. Rely on your plastic surgeon to outline everything you can do to make the experience more comfortable and effective. The more prepared, educated and informed you are, the better.
That’s why, when it comes to preparing for your plastic surgery procedure, Dr. Adibfar and his Toronto plastic surgery team invest the time before your procedure to review your medical history, educate you on every detail and ensure you’re ready for your beautiful future. Dr. Adibfar’s focus on transparency, honesty and openness is designed so you are left with no questions unanswered.
