Today, with the developing technology, the field of aesthetic and plastic surgery has become widespread and has become an area that is applied not only for health concerns but also for aesthetic concerns. Although this area is seen as ordinary and has simple operation processes done by many people, aesthetic operations have processes that need to be researched and prepared beforehand as well as other fields. We’re talking about in this article 10 things to consider before getting aesthetic surgery.
1.Find a Good Doctor
Aesthetic and plastic surgery is a very wide field. Although people who specialize in this branch have received a special training and degree, some doctors may have preferred to focus on certain areas. Surgeons, who can be specialized in different body parts such as nose, breast, chin and eyes, come to the fore with their work in the areas they concentrate and make their names heard. Therefore, when making your choice of doctor, do not forget to pay attention to the specific area that the doctor has focused on. You can get detailed information about doctors from their private websites or from the websites of the hospitals they work with.
2. Make Sure You Can Effectively Communicate With Your Doctor
Aesthetic operations (especially operations performed due to aesthetic concerns, not health concerns) have different dynamics than those performed within the scope of other branches. It would be best to explain this with a small example. Let’s say you have a health problem related to your stomach and your doctor stated that you need surgery. You can consult your doctor on every subject and ask questions on every subject, but you cannot make special requests about the operation you will undergo, as for example you cannot say “Can you sew my stomach membrane from above?”.
Aesthetic operations are quite different from other branches in this respect. The patient goes to his doctor with a special demand and expectation. Patient has an image in his head and expects the doctor to do a suitable study to get this image. For this reason, it is very important to be able to convey your expectations to the doctor correctly.
In aesthetic operations, as well as how successful the doctor is in his field, his communication with the patient is also of great importance. For this reason, you should pay attention to the quality of your communication with the doctor, as well as researching the area of specialization of your doctor before aesthetic surgery.
Doctors working in the field of aesthetic surgery and plastic surgery in Turkey, are highly experienced in working with patients from different countries and cultures. For this reason, there are fewer problems in communication than in different countries.

3.Investigate Your Hospital
If the doctor is at the top of the list of importance for a patient, the hospital should take the second place. The care you will receive before and after the operation is of critical importance. For this reason, do not neglect to do a detailed research about your hospital.
There are quite successful doctors and hospital in aesthetic and plastic surgery fields in Turkey. It should be noted that while doing your doctor research, you will come across many hospital names. These hospitals stand out in Europe for the success of the doctors they work with and the care services they provide.
4.Get Information About Pre and Post Operative Process
Be sure to get detailed information about the process before aesthetic surgery operations as well as before any kind of surgery. Especially the healing process proceeds differently in aesthetic operations. Do not neglect to ask your doctor any questions in your mind about how and when you can achieve the desired result.
5.Do Not Use Medicine Without Your Doctor’s Knowledge
Aesthetic surgeries are seen by some people as quite simple operations. Unfortunately this is not true. In almost all aesthetic operations, anesthesia is given as in other surgeries and an surgical incision is made in the body. Therefore, you should take this process seriously.
Do not use any medicine without your doctor’s knowledge before the operation. In particular, avoid using any blood thinners (aspirin, etc.).
6.Inform Your Doctor About Your Health History
Your doctor and healthcare team will ask you questions regarding your pre-operative health history. If there is a special situation in addition to the requested information, do not hesitate to mention it. Remember, aesthetic operations are also serious medical interventions.

7.Pay Attention to Your Diet
One of the issues to be considered before the operation is the diet. Before the operation, you should stay away from foods that will discomfort your stomach and intestines. It will also be beneficial for you not to consume alcohol and tobacco products.
Be sure! Before the aesthetic operations performed due to aesthetic concerns, the patient asked himself “What do I want?” and be satisfied with the answer he gave to this question.
“I want my nose to be like Audrey Hepburn’s nose”
“Why don’t my legs look like Kendal Janner’s legs?”
“I wish my chin would look like Nicole Kidman’s …”
These are not just words you say to yourself. Many things are now possible thanks to today’s health technologies and doctors who specialize in this field. The important thing is that you decide whether you really want this or not. Do not forget to listen to yourself well and be sure about what you want while doing your research on aesthetic operations.
9.Consult Your Close Friends
As we mentioned above, it is very important for the person to be confident before the aesthetic operation decision. Sometimes you may be confused during this process, and you may have question marks about what you want. Do not worry! Making a decision about own body is not an easy process. Try to consult people you trust and who knows you well. They can guide you by noticing things that you do not notice, and can help you eliminate question marks in your mind.
10.Don’t Overdo it
The biggest danger with aesthetic operations is the tendency to overdo it. Today’s technologies and medical knowledge allow you to almost reinvent a person, but that doesn’t mean you are a play dough. Do not try to make all the changes in your mind in one go. Proceed step by step for the changes you want to have in your body. So you can better evaluate whether these changes are worth for you.
