As one of Colorado Springs’ leading cosmetic plastic surgeons, Dr. Bland is often asked by individuals if they are a good candidate for cosmetic plastic surgery.
每个人都是独立的个体. Bland often explains that you may be a good candidate for cosmetic surgery if you’re healthy, 有合理的预期, and know the risks of the procedure you’re considering.
He also explains that you may not be a good cosmetic surgery candidate if you have serious health problems such as 糖尿病, 高血压, 出血障碍, 心脏病, 或抑郁. 也, 肥胖, 吸烟, or over consumption of alcohol will also impact whether or not you will be a good candidate for cosmetic surgery.
之前你的 整容手术, you and and your surgeon should talk in depth about your health, 你的生活方式(包括锻炼, 喝, 和吸烟), 你有什么条件, 以及你服用的任何药物或补充剂. That discussion will help you know if surgery is a good option for you. Your surgeon may request that you quit 吸烟 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.
Your skin type and other unique characteristics should factor into your decision to have a 整容手术. For example, skin resurfacing techniques work best on people with fair skin and light colored hair. People with thin and delicate nasal skin get the best results from nose surgery (rhinoplasty).
As we said, each cosmetic surgery procedure and patient are evaluated individually. 然而, industry experts provide this list as a general guideline to help you determine if you are a good candidate for a specific facial 整容手术:
唇术. You are a good candidate if you are young and want bigger lips or if you are older and your lips have thinned. You are not a good candidate if you have recently taken the acne drug Accutane or if you have one of these conditions: herpes, 糖尿病, an autoimmune disease like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, 任何类型的严重过敏反应. 也, you must accept the risk of allergic reaction to the implanted material.
脸颊植入物. You are a good candidate if you have flat cheek bones or early sagging of the cheeks. You are not a good candidate if you have excess sagging of the skin, 哪种整容效果更好. 也, you must accept the risk that the implant could become infected, 被身体排斥, or shift to an abnormal position requiring more surgery.
下巴植入. You are a good candidate if you have a weak chin or if your chin is not balanced with your nose. You are not a good candidate if you have an abnormal dental bite that requires jaw realignment. 也, you must be able to accept the risk that the implant could become infected, 被身体排斥, or shift to an abnormal position requiring more surgery.
额/提眉. You are a good candidate if you have heavy eyebrows, deep forehead wrinkles, or frown lines. You are not a good candidate if you are balding or scar easily. 也, you must be able to accept the risk of losing your hair around the surgical area and the possibility of having some 麻木 in your forehead and scalp.
眼皮手术(追求). You are a good candidate if you have droopy eyelids, bags, or puffiness around your eyes. You are not a good candidate if you have dark circles, fine lines, or crow’s feet. 也, you must be able to accept the risk of blindness (extremely rare), 眼睛干涩, 明显的伤疤, and eyelid “pulling” (which can cause eye irritation).
鼻手术(鼻整形术). You are a good candidate if you have a large or crooked nose that is droopy or has a bump. 如果你脸皮厚，你就不是一个好的候选人, 是一个孩子(身体尚未完全发育), 或者进行接触性运动. 也, you must be able to accept the possibility that in 15% to 20% of cases, 为了达到最佳效果，需要进行额外的手术.
面部和颈部抬起(整容术). You are a good candidate if the skin and soft tissues on your face and neck sag with deep wrinkles, 垂下眼睛, 还有双下巴. You are not a good candidate if your skin is not elastic and flexible or if you are significantly overweight. You must also accept that aging continues and be willing to accept the risk of skin loss, 疤痕, 麻木, 部分面瘫, 或者发际线的变化.
Remember, some of these procedures do not last forever. 它们无法阻止自然衰老的过程. Think about whether you’re at the right age for cosmetic surgery. For example, you can have a facelift in your 30s, but it may last only five or 10 years. Some people delay having a facelift until they are in their 40s or 50s, 希望只做一个手术.
