How to prepare for plastic surgery

The decision to undergo plastic surgery of any kind is a complex one — each patient is different when it comes to their goals and motivations.

For this reason, we treat each patient with individual, customised care, and provide specific treatment based on their unique needs. While there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan, here are some tips for preparing for your procedure.

  1. Ask Mr Morgan all your questions
    Undergoing any kind of plastic surgery procedure is a big decision, and it’s likely that you will have a lot of questions as you prepare for surgery. Don’t be shy to ask about anything that is unclear to you—Mr Morgan is happy to address any concerns you might have. Open communication is key when it comes to a successful treatment (and recovery) process, so let Mr Morgan know all of your expectations, worries, and motivations for considering cosmetic surgery. All of these factors will help Mr Morgan determine the type of treatment best suited to your needs. Also, feel free to ask Mr Morgan about his past experience in performing the particular procedure you are interested in; whether there are any potential risks; how the procedure will be performed; how long the recovery period will last; and if there are any before and after photos from past procedures available for you to look at.
  2. Research your procedure
    Take some time to read about the procedure you are interested in: for a full list of the treatments that Mr Morgan offers, have a look here. Once you have familiarised yourself with how the procedure works, make a list of any additional questions you have and bring them in when you come in for a consultation with Mr Morgan. This will ensure that you have all the information you need, and you can make an informed decision about undergoing your procedure.

  3. Have realistic goals
    Decide exactly what it is that you want from your procedure and explain your goals and expectations to Mr Morgan when you come in for your consultation. If you have reference images, feel free to bring them in as well. It’s important, however, that you keep your expectations realistic. Mr Morgan will give you an idea of what is achievable by taking into consideration a number of factors, including your body/skin type. Keep an open mind and try and be open to Mr Morgan’s guidance and expertise.
  4. Consider the recovery process
    Recovery is an important part of the entire plastic surgery process, and your healing time will depend on a number of factors, including the specific procedure you undergo, as well as your overall health. Mr Morgan will provide you with more details when you have opted to go ahead with your procedure, but it is a good idea to prepare yourself for some time off work and a break from your usual exercise regime. It is also common to experience side effects like bruising and swelling following surgery, so be aware that it is likely to take some time before you are able to see the full results of your procedure.
