Why take the risk?


Posted in "Secrets" of Cosmetic Surgery, January 26th, 2013 | Posted by Dr. Kreidstein

It is not unusual for patients to present to our practice with problems for which cosmetic surgery is an ideal solution, but they hesitate to proceed with a procedure for fear of the tiny risk of a bad outcome.  Everyone has a different way of approaching risk, but it is vital that you consider the risk of inaction, and not just the risk of action.  The risk of inaction?  Let’s say it’s a face lift you are considering.  Without the face lift, you are judged (unfairly) to be too tired for that promotion at work, your appearance and diminished feelings of attractiveness interfere with your personal relationships, and you become depressed by the loss of opportunities.  Not having a face lift carries risks, and these risks are much more likely to occur than are the risks of complications from well-conceived cosmetic surgery.

Moreover, by overcoming your fear of risk and having your surgery, you gain both the physical advantages of your procedure as well as an increased confidence in your ability to understand risk, which  may empower you to improve your life through accepting strategic risks  in other areas of your life.  We see countless examples of people changing jobs or entering new relationships after their cosmetic procedure, and confidence in assuming acceptable risks is at the core of these changes.
