Are You Ready for a New Year and New You?

Johnny Mao, MD When Dr. Mao consults with new patients, his first concern isn’t scheduling your surgery; his first concern is your safety. In fact, the primary reason for having an initial consultation about your desire to obtain plastic surgery, whether it’s for a breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, a facelift, or some combination for a new you, is to determine whether you meet the requirements for safely undergoing the procedure.

Physical Health

Any invasive surgery carries risk, so being in good health is a basic requirement in being qualified to undergo any kind of plastic surgery. You must be physically healthy enough to safely be placed under anesthesia, which means your blood pressure should not be too high, your BMI should be with a certain range, and you should have no complicating factors, such as cardiovascular disease.

Mental Health

The purpose behind your desire to have plastic surgery is something we will explore with you. We have had patients come in requesting plastic surgery who clearly did not want it but had outside pressure, from a significant other or even from a family member, to get something done. We want to give you the body YOU desire – not fulfill the expectations of someone else.

Support System

Recovering from plastic surgery takes time. You will need to have someone who can drive you home after your procedure; someone who can stay with you for a few days if needed while you recover. You may need help doing simple things depending on the procedure you have until your incision heals.

Dr. Mao also encourages patients to ask a lot of questions, make informed decisions, and ensure their expectations are achievable. After a personal consultation, patients leave feeling well-informed about the best treatment options. They understand the benefits and limitations of select procedures, and ultimately leave with an informed treatment plan to get the results they want.
