An uninformed patient is not a good candidate for plastic surgery.
The fact that you are here, reading this, shows that you are taking the right steps and want to learn about plastic surgery before you jump in. Learning the benefits & risks of cosmetic surgery can also be very helpful.

Who is not a candidate for plastic surgery? An indecisive patient is not a good candidate for plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is a major commitment and should not be performed on someone who is mildly curious to see how they might look. Also, a patient with unrealistic goals, such as fifty-year-old woman who wants her teenage body back, is also not a good candidate.

Patients with underlying emotional issues are not good candidates. Most plastic and cosmetic surgeons will ask potential patients a series of questions upon their initial. The purpose of these questions is to evaluate whether the patient is sincerely considering plastic surgery to look and feel healthier, or if the patient is seeking plastic surgery as a way of disguising emotional distress.

The best way to discover if you are a candidate for plastic surgery is to discuss your situation with a plastic surgeon in your area. A plastic surgeon will be able to evaluate your goals and help determine whether or not you should proceed.
