Making the choice to have a cosmetic procedure done can be a big one. Some know right away that it’s right for them, while others take more time to make a decision. If you’re considering a procedure then you should speak to someone from Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in Cherry Hill. Here are some tips from our office to help you determine whether or not cosmetic surgery is right for you.
Are you a Good Candidate?
At Davis Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, we will take the following into account when determining whether or not you are a good candidate for a cosmetic procedure:
- Overall health
- Medical history
- State of mind
- Reasons for wanting the procedure
Often, prospective patients don’t have a reasonable set of expectations for a given procedure. It’s important to determine whether or not this is the case and to be sure that goals, expectations and likely outcomes are all aligned.
What are the Alternatives?
There are some alternatives to cosmetic procedures, though they will likely not yield the same results.
If you wish to remove unwanted hair, you could try wax, threading or depilatory creams as an alternative to shaving, although these do not last nearly as long as laser treatments.
If your goal is to keep your facial skin toned, facial exercises may help. To help keep your skin looking fresh and bright you will need to do the following regularly:
- Apply a daily moisturizer with a minimum of SPF 15 as protection and wrinkle prevention
- Avoid smoking and second hand smoke which takes moisture from your skin
- Keep hydrated with at least 8 glasses of water per day
If you’re feeling like you need a pick-me-up or a quick boost of confidence, a new hairstyle or a trip to the mall for some new items in your closet sometimes help give you that boost you’re looking for. If you feel a procedure would be right for you, give Dr. Davis, a trusted Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Cherry Hill, a call at 856-424-1700 to discuss your options.
