Before you get plastic surgery, it's important to know exactly what you should expect so that you can stay healthy after your procedure. In a recent article, Smart Beauty Guide – the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's (ASAPS) new consumer education brand – shares tips for what you can do to ensure a smooth recovery: 

  • Understand the risks involved – "As with any operation, there are risks involved," explains the source. "Whether you're receiving an injectable or going under the knife, there are several things to consider before your procedure. First, patients should only visit board-certified surgeons that they have spoken to beforehand. Choosing the right doctor – one that has experience conducting the procedure and is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery – is essential to the success of your results." Don't be afraid to schedule consultations with more than one plastic surgeon so you can find the one that's right for you. 
  • Follow your plastic surgeon's advice – Depending on the the type of procedure you get, there are instructions and advice that you'll need to follow after your surgery to ensure a healthy recovery. With a non-invasive procedure like Botox, you'll probably be able to return to your daily routine shortly after. On the other hand, if you get breast implants, rhinoplasty or a tummy tuck, your recovery time will be significantly longer.
