Cosmetic Surgery Decisions

Dr. Mahsa Moghaddam at BCSC

In the current issue of Southwest Metro Magazine, our own Dr. Mahsa Moghaddam and her patient are interviewed about the importance of feeling confident in understanding surgical options when approaching the notion of cosmetic surgery. However, even as plastic surgery is more commonly discussed in media today and marketing hype is in over-drive, women can still sometimes feel uncomfortable about seeking information, perhaps feeling it is too vain to want a cosmetic change.

In an excerpt from the article she explains, “Is there something about your physical appearance bothering you enough that you want to change it? Is it hurting your quality of life?” Moghaddam says if you answer yes, you should consider speaking with a plastic surgeon. It’s most important to find the right doctor for you and she offers a few suggestions to follow.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery almost 2 million cosmetic procedures were performed last year, so you are not alone in considering surgery. Do your homework, schedule consulations and be sure to have all your questions answered. Feel confident in your decision, because as Dr. Moghaddam sees it, “Ultimately, an informed patient is more likely to be a happy patient because he or she has chosen that procedure understanding all the facts, and will be more likely to be invested in it in their recovery.”
