While everyone is an individual, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic surgery if you’re healthy, have reasonable expectations, and know the risks of the procedure you’re considering.

You may not be a good cosmetic surgery candidate if you have serious health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, a bleeding disorder, heart disease, or depression. As well, obesity, smoking, or over consumption of alcohol will also impact whether or not you will be a good candidate for cosmetic surgery in the Florida Keys.

Discussions With Your Surgeon

Prior to your cosmetic procedure, you and and your surgeon should talk in depth about your health, your lifestyle (including exercise, drinking, and smoking), any conditions you have, and any medications or supplements you take. That discussion will help you know if surgery is a good option for you. Your surgeon may request that you quit smoking for two to four weeks before surgery and not smoke for at least two to four weeks after surgery. This will allow your body to heal from the cosmetic surgery procedure you invested in.

Be sure you tell your doctor about everything you take, even vitamins and herbal products that don’t require a prescription. Some may affect bleeding risk or interfere with other medications used during surgery.
