Body lift surgery is a complex operation that requires a lot of information to be processed and considered. There are 3 main points that people interested in this procedure should keep in mind especially that this involved both a major physical and psychological recovery period.
1. Make Sure You Have Appropriate Motivation & Realistic Expectations
Make sure you are doing the body lift surgery for yourself and for the right reasons and that you have realistic expectations. Be aware that an improvement in the problem area may not necessarily translate to an overall improvement in your life or home situation. You are bound to be disappointed with results of body lift surgery if your motivation is not intrinsic. Timing of your body lift surgery is crucial. Generally, it is not a good idea to have body lift surgery done during or immediately after a stressful period in your life e.g. divorce or death of a loved one. The additional stress of body lift surgery will undoubtedly be more challenging to deal with if your emotional reserves are already exhausted. Take note that an improvement in your physical appearance will not necessarily translate to an improvement in your life situation. Lastly, keep in mind the end results as you go through the sometimes tough, emotional times after your body lift surgery.
