When is Surgery Right for Me?

When is Surgery Right for Me?People undergo cosmetic and plastic surgery for various reasons. Some may seek surgery to turn back the clock, while others may want to look like their true self, or correct some blemish or concern that may nag at them. Whatever the reason, at Kass Center for Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, we are here for you and have some tips on when surgery may be right for you.


For many, they may not consider age to be a significant factor when considering surgery. However, depending on your procedure and what you seek to alter, your age can greatly affect how well your results last the test of time and age.

However, no matter your age, during your initial consultation we will discuss what procedures or treatment options are ideal for your goal and condition so that we can help you to look as great as you feel.


While plastic surgery can be the best way to achieve a flawless body, your health matters more. As such, your lifestyle determines if you are the perfect candidate for surgery. If you desire a more slender and toned figure, we always recommend patients begin with regular exercise and modifications to their diet that supports healthy weight loss.

Various lifestyles can hinder proper recovery after the surgery. Therefore, for your health and the success of the procedure, we will thoroughly examine your lifestyle and medical history.

Suppose you lead a lifestyle involving smoking, consuming alcohol regularly, poor diet, excess weight, or pre-existing medical conditions. In that case, you may have a longer pre-surgery checklist than others as these conditions can lead to complications after the surgery or put you at risk. We will work with you to determine the best treatment option for your lifestyle and goals.


For a long time, cosmetic and plastic surgeries seemed out of reach and luxury for the ultra-wealthy. This reputation stemmed from the fact that most medical insurers do not cover these “non-essential” procedures. So patients often have to pay out of pocket, which can be costly.

In recent times, specific surgical procedures have become more common and many offer assistance with payment so that these procedures are more accessible to everyone.

However, we want to warn you that quality should not be compromised for price. Though it can seem like a great deal and many may seek out surgeries elsewhere for a cheaper price tag, complications may be more likely and end up costing more in recovery and repair.

Plastic surgery should be for those who want to look as great as they feel and enhance or improve their current appearance. It is also important to have realistic expectations for both yourself and the procedure, we will do our best to describe the results tailored to your condition during your consultation so that you are aware of what is possible with our services.
