“Surgery” is a loaded word for a lot of people. But plastic surgeries shouldn’t be frightening. Plastic surgery procedures are designed to enhance your appearance and sense of self, and undergoing one of these procedures can drastically improve your confidence and quality of life.

With Dr. Salameh, you know you have the most professional care and experience you can find anywhere in the world. If you’re preparing for plastic surgery or merely considering it, we have many methods for you to eliminate any pre-op anxiety and feel calm and excited about the new you.

1. Eliminate fear of the unknown.

Most of the time, when we’re stressed, it’s because we don’t know what to expect. Educating yourself about the ins and outs of your plastic surgery procedure will certainly help alleviate any concerns you have about what the procedure will involve.

When you’re doing research about your procedure to prepare for plastic surgery, it’s always best to turn to a board-certified plastic surgeon. This is one of the very reasons our personalized, one-on-one consultations with Dr. Salameh are such an important part of our process. They allow you to get to know your plastic surgeon, ask any questions you may have, and gain all the reassurance and information you need before you make your final decision.

It may also help to familiarize yourself with the environment in which your surgery is to be performed. Your plastic surgeon may be willing to show you around the facility or describe in detail what your procedure will involve if you express anxiety. Dr. Salameh’s top priority is your comfort and happiness.

2. Plan your recovery.

Knowing exactly how and where you’re going to recover is an essential part of planning for your plastic surgery procedure, and it’s a great way to eliminate anxiety.
Often, especially if there’s anesthesia involved, patients are more concerned about the pain that follows afterward than the actual procedure. Having someone to take care of you and a relaxing, comfy place in which to recover will reassure you about the aftercare process immensely.

Prepare for plastic surgery by planning a recovery you look forward to. Whether that’s a walk through Mammoth Cave National Park, a Netflix binge, or a good book, you should make recovery something you’re excited for. You should look forward to your enhanced body and appearance after a procedure, not dwell on unfounded fears about possible discomfort.

3. Build trust in your plastic surgery team.

If you have any nagging doubts about the skill or expertise of your plastic surgery team, naturally, you will worry.

Research what credentials and education are involved in becoming a plastic surgeon. You’ll not only be comforted, but you’re likely to be highly impressed. Becoming a medical professional takes years of intense training, and plastic surgery is one of the most advanced and precise medical fields there is. Establishing confidence in your team is an important step to preparing for plastic surgery.

Your team would not have gotten the reputation and accreditation it has today without rigorous effort, intelligence, and talent. Salameh Plastic Surgery’s team has every certification you need to feel confident and safe during and after your plastic surgery procedure, and a friendly attitude to make you feel at home.
