It only makes sense that the bigger an impact that a decision has on your life, the more time and effort you should devote to planning for it. Liposuction and other cosmetic procedures absolutely hold the capacity to change your life for the better, improving your confidence level and your outlook on life, but shouldn’t you take the time to research before committing?

Below, you’ll find three factors that you should consider while planning your procedure. As you wade through all of the information available about cosmetic procedures, these can add structure to your research.

1. There Will Be A Recovery Time

It is very important to factor in your estimated recovery time when deciding when to have your procedure. The length of your recovery will depend greatly on the area that you choose to have worked on and the amount of fat that you plan to have removed.

Generally speaking, patients are advised to take a week off of work. Combined with two weekends on either end, this will give you 9 days to recover. If your procedure is focused on a small area, you may only need a few days, and the majority of swelling should subside at about the one-week mark.

2. You Have Some Options In Terms Of Which Procedure To Choose

Depending on what area of the body you hope to address, you may want to look into a liposuction alternative like Zerona. Zerona is a non-surgical procedure that can help you lose up to 3 inches from your waistline. It is designed to be comfortable and non-invasive, but it does not offer the same level of fat loss as traditional liposuction.

3. It Pays To Choose An Experienced Cosmetic Surgeon

Smart Beauty Guide recommends spending a significant amount of time deciding which surgeon you trust to perform your procedure. Every doctor has a different set of credentials and will have a different amount of experience performing your selected procedure.

Some qualifications are absolutely vital for cosmetic surgeons. For instance, you should only consider surgeons who are members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS). The academy thoroughly vets their members, so you can be sure any of their members are qualified.

Millennium Medical is run by Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael, who has more than 16 years of experience performing cosmetic procedures. Also, he is a very active member of the AACS.
