You are probably NOT a good candidate for Plastic Surgery if:

  • You can only accept a PERFECT result
  • You cannot emotionally deal with possible complications
  • You have unrealistic expectations. Plastic surgery won’t make you look like a model, fix a broken marriage or romance, or guarantee a better job
  • You are in poor health and the risks of surgery and anesthesia outweigh the benefits
  • You’ve had multiple plastic surgery procedures before and continue to be dissatisfied with the outcome
  • You are having plastic surgery to please someone else
  • You have body dysmorphic disorder
  • You cannot give yourself the “downtime” required to heal
