The Myths of Plastic Surgery Vacations
A search on the internet for plastic surgery will return many options for people considering traveling to a coastline resort or other country for their plastic surgery. Some of these websites claim that you can have fun and relax after your procedure or that you can enjoy a full vacation before you return home with a great new body.
The truth is, you may not be able to have nearly as much “fun” as you would like to believe. One of the most important parts of plastic surgery is the recovery period. For procedures like liposuction, abdominoplasty, and breast augmentation, the recovery period is a time for you to rest and avoid strenuous activity. It would endanger your cosmetic surgery results if you were to engage in any sort of physical activity or outdoor exercise.
You might also put yourself at risk for more complications than if you had chosen a plastic surgeon near your home.
You would be best cared for it you are recovering in a location near your plastic surgeon. Imagine flying home after a plastic surgery vacation only to realize you are suffering from surgical complications. Where would you go? Who could you talk to? By selecting a plastic surgeon near you, you ensure being able to speak and talk to the surgeon if any problems arise during recovery.
If you are considering any type of plastic surgery, make sure you speak with a plastic surgeon near you before making any plans to travel for it. Please contact us for a consultation with Dallas, Texas cosmetic surgeon Dr. Vasdev Rai today.
