In the case of men and according to the expert, fat reduction in abdomen and sides, gynecomastia, nose reshaping, and hair micro implantation are the most chosen.

When we talk about care measures, we refer to all those aspects that both doctor and patient must consider to minimize the risk of a complication appearing. Here are the top 3 questions to ask ourselves:

What are we looking for?

Professional-patient interviews are essential. The relationship established between the two is a society that begins when the first consultation is held and must last forever. In all types of intervention, it is essential to understand that each case requires a personalized evaluation, an exchange between both parties where the steps to be taken are determined, based on desires and achievable aspirations. Experience is decisive for the operation to be satisfactory.

How will the procedure be performed?

The surgeon must explain both the patient and his relatives the risks of the procedure as well as the scope of the applied technique; and that in the event of a complication, an early diagnosis will be reached, either through a physical examination, enter consultations with other doctors or using complementary diagnostic methods, in order to resolve it without lethal consequences. This point is essential since many times, the fear of being judged by other colleagues means that a surgeon can minimize it and ignore it, wanting to take up the reins when it is too late.

When is the best time to do it?

The best time has no medical specifications. There is no ideal time to perform surgery and that it is related to the seasons of the year. Although it is true that some interventions should be carried out in winter, for example, the facelift to avoid exposure to the sun or the same happens with tummy since the use of the belt in summer is uncomfortable.

What is important to note regarding the ideal moment is that the patient feels safe, confident that what he is doing is under his own determination. The confidence in the medical team is of vital importance to achieving postoperative evolution as expected. It is normal for all patients to enter the operating room with a degree of uncertainty, but it is covered with the tranquility that the professional and his team give him.
