"If you are considering plastic surgery, you
must be honest with yourself. Exactly why do you want surgery?
And, what are your goals for surgery - what do you expect plastic
surgery to do for you?
This brochure will provide you with a basic understanding
of the psychological issues involved with plastic surgery. Because
the changes resulting from plastic surgery are often dramatic and
permanent, it's important that you have a clear understanding of
how surgery might make you feel - long before a procedure is scheduled.
It can't answer all your questions, since your individual circumstances
and your self-image must be considered. Ask your surgeon if there
is anything you don't understand about the possible psychological
aspects and effects of your planned procedure."
