You should discuss the procedure in detail with your surgeon. Ask as many questions as you need to so that you’re fully aware of what the procedure involves, how it will be carried out, what the results will be and whether there will be any after effects.
How long do the effects last?
Most cosmetic surgery procedures will produce effects that last 5-10 years. In the case of reshaping of the nose or ears, for example, the changes may last forever. Changes that involve fat addition or removal, such as liposuction, are more susceptible to fading if not supported by an appropriate diet and active lifestyle. Noninvasive options include Botox and other fillers. Your cosmetic surgeon will be able to tell you how long the changes you desire should last.
Like any other surgery, there are risks involved with cosmetic surgery as well. During recovery, one can experience a lot of pain.
