Give Heartburn The Heave-Ho: Tips For Easing Discomfort

I've found many different things that help in different ways. I decided to create this site to document the solutions that I've found and help others to find a way to manage their chronic heartburn as well.

Some Things You Should Know To Prepare For Plastic Surgery

Health & Medical Blog

Getting plastic surgery can be a great way to correct things that you don't like about yourself and get the body you have always wanted. There are some things that you need to know about plastic surgery before you decide if it is right for you. Here are some things to consider.

Most Plastic Surgery Is Elective

Most plastic surgery procedures are considered elective, meaning your insurance will not pay for any of it. You are choosing to get the surgery done, it is not something that you have to have done, which is why your medical insurance won't pay for. The only real exception to this is if you have a HAS (health savings account) in some cases you might be able to use your HAS account to pay for a plastic surgery procedure.

There are some plastic surgeons who do non-elective surgery. For instance, if you have had some deformity from a burn injury, a car accident, a scar or so forth, you can get your insurance to pay for it. The difference is if you are changing something about yourself that is non-medical or something that you have had your whole life, compared to having some traumatic accident that created a deformity. Of course, it never hurts to try and run the procedure through your insurance and see if they will help with any of it.

The Recovery For Plastic Surgery Can Be Severe

Just because the surgery is elective doesn't mean that it won't be intense. Depending on the type of surgery you get, you could be healing for days, even weeks. There will be a lot of pain, and you may need help from family and friends to heal. For example, if you choose to get a breast enhancement surgery, or a breast lift, you should expect to have at least a week of healing. There will be lot of bruising, swelling and overall pain. You won't be able to go back to work or resume your normal activities for at least a week after the procedure. So although the procedure will be a same day surgery, the healing may require more time than that.

Make Sure You Have Prepared Yourself Emotionally

Plastic surgery is a great way to change what you don't like, but that doesn't mean that it is simple emotionally. There are many people who jump into it without realizing just how much it will affect their emotional psyche. Seeing a therapist or having close friends or family to talk about it will help.

These are just a couple things you need to consider about plastic surgery.
