If you are one of the many who have, there are some points to consider carefully to ensure it is the right decision for you

Dr. Andrew Lofman is a sought-after plastic surgeon in metro Detroit and has helped countless men and women achieve their aesthetic goals and increased confidence. Read on for more expert tips to learn whether cosmetic procedures are right for you.


Whether you are looking to lose excess fat in the stomach area, tone your arms or return your breasts to their pre-pregnancy shape, there are factors you should consider.

First, you should understand why you’re wishing for the surgery and have realistic expectations. When performed correctly, plastic surgery can reshape and restore your body in a natural-looking way. You should only be considering plastic surgery if you yourself wish to have it, without influences from anyone else.

Further, you should have realistic expectations when it comes to your treatment. If you are 50 and looking to return to your 30-year-old body, that is not realistic. Plastic surgery can help to enhance the appearance of your current body. Your surgeon may recommend more than one treatment to attain the results you’re looking for, i.e., a mommy makeover along with a breast augmentation, for example.

You should also be prepared for the downtime associate with your treatment. Some procedures require taking a week or more off of work and no heavy lifting for up to three months. Your surgeon can talk to you in depth about the specific aftercare involved with your treatment.


Perhaps most importantly is who you choose to perform your plastic surgery treatment. It’s key to understand that plastic surgeons need not be board-certified in order to practice. However, board-certification does, indeed, matter and can have an impact on your results.

Becoming board certified is a meticulous and lengthy process that requires the surgeon at hand has attained a medical degree from a school that is accredited. Further, it requires that a specific residency is attained. The takeaway: Do your due diligence and choose only a highly-educated and trained, board-certified plastic surgeon.
