For some people, making the decision to get any kind of cosmetic surgery is only the first of many steps that come with the procedure. Once you’ve made the decision, it’s time to research what you think you might want, visit doctors for consultations, decide which doctor you’re most comfortable with, and the list goes on.
Let’s just say, hypothetically, that you’ve overcome half of those hurdles – you decided to get the procedure, you’ve consulted with multiple doctors, picked your favorite and landed on the deep plane facelift to help alter the signs of aging you’re just not feeling. Now let’s just say you’re a few weeks away from your surgery and you’re starting to become apprehensive.
What do you do? How do you calm your nerves? You’ve wanted this for months, possibly years, and now you feel nervous?
One thing that some people find helpful when it comes to appeasing this kind of anxiety and uncertainly is to really understand the benefits of the surgery.
Jean-Paul Azzi, M.D. is a double board certified Palm Beach facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who actually specializes exclusively in procedures of the face, nose, and neck. One of his specialties is the deep plane facelift. Dr. Azzi feels it is important for his patients to really understand the procedure, it’s benefits and what to expect. For example, it’s important for patients to understand that a deep plane facelift is different than a standard facelift due its modification of techniques.
Beyond a very natural appearance, some of the benefits of Dr. Azzi’s deep plane facelifts are long lasting results and a quick recovery. Dr. Azzi does not use general anesthesia, so the patients remain awake during the procedure. He also doesn’t use drains or large and bulky wraps.
Having this knowledge and understanding of the procedure can often times help patients manage those thoughts of apprehension leading up to the procedure. Having a full comprehension of the benefits can help rationalize the “what if” thoughts and focus on the positive outcome. We’ve all seen before & after photos, and while your “after” is unknown, knowing what to expect can help ease your mind. If you know that before the surgery you’re unhappy with certain features on your face, knowing these features will be improved could be how you help suppress the feeling of nerves.
In South Florida, Dr. Azzi is the go-to facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and he is known for using the most advanced surgical techniques in the field. He treats every patient like a true individual and tailors his approach to ensure every patient gets exactly what they’re looking for every time.
Your next decision could be the one that changes your view on your appearance, how you feel about yourself, and your outlook on life. Being nervous about any kind of procedure is definitely normal. It’s up to your plastic surgeon to make you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the entire process, even prior to any kind of surgery.
