This is something you consider in the goal-setting process and also discuss with a surgeon. Ultimately, make sure that your goals are specific, realistic and measurable.

You will also need to find a surgeon that is best suited. Find a cosmetic surgeon that has exceptional reviews and is board certified. Based on your goals you may want someone specializes in a particular procedure as many doctors do. Also, check out the surgeon’s previous work to ensure that your ideas align with the aesthetic vision of their work.
Talk to your surgeon
There are a lot of questions that you should ask your surgeon. First, you need to find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure or if there is another procedure that could be better suited for your face and your goals.

Figure out the logistics. Take into account the cost of the procedure and the amount of downtime that will follow. Some procedures are less invasive, or more cost-effective than others. Consider the costs and benefits of your options and how they will realistically fit in with your lifestyle. If recovery is required, pick a date that allows for a relaxed recovery free from stress or travel. Guarantee that you are certain about your decision by talking it over, meeting with the surgeon multiple times, and taking as much time as you need before scheduling the procedure.
