The holidays highlight relationships good and bad. A recent Sign on San Diego article shared advice about bickering relationships ruining the holiday festivities. Withn plastic surgery the stakes can be much higher.
Dr Kincaid encourages his patients to maintain positive relationships throughout their plastic surgery decisions. Procedures that have an intense recovery like abdominoplasty and thighplasty should have a strong support system to assist the patient through recovery. These procedures limit the patients ability to walk alone for the first 7 -10 days.These procedures also have a moderately high level of pain and the emotional aspect of recovery could be spoiled with the bickeing of a friend or spouse. Dr Kincaid cautions his plastic surgery patients to include only the friends in which they have a positive relationship with the information of their plastic surgery decision. Friends that opposed to the patients decision to have plastic surgery should be avoided. Dr Kincaid stresses to his patients that a positive attitude will help his patient to have a positive plastic surgery experience. Although complications are rare in plastic surgery they can happen. Most patients will heal well even after a slight complication but without a good positive support system even a small complication can cause a patient a great deal of anxiety.
