Who Is A Good Candidate For Cosmetic Surgery?Wednesday, March 21, 2012 - 13:04
Wrinkles can make us feel and act older than our years. Cosmetic procedures can restore a healthier, more youthful look to the face, and in so doing can boost confidence and self-esteem. But cosmetic procedures cannot restore youth or stop the aging process.
A good candidate for cosmetic surgery is in good general health and is psychologically stable with realistic expectations.
Skin type, color, and elasticity, bone structure, and individual healing patterns should all be considered before deciding to undergo a cosmetic procedure. Because deep chemical peels using phenol cause permanent loss of skin pigmentation, they usually are not recommended for people with dark skin. Phenol is also not recommended for people with heart, liver, or kidney conditions.
