5 Important Considerations Before Any Cosmetic Procedure

With the growing number of cosmetic procedures done each year, there is a tendency to take it for granted. The fact is, the body needs to heal after any procedure, which is just one reason the non-invasive forms of body contouring have become so popular. There is no surgery, the downtime is minimal and the outcome is fantastic – under the right conditions.
For optimum results, you need to keep in mind that everybody is different and every practitioner is too.

Dr. Scott Siverhus and Dee Siverhus, the owners of Contour You, have over 60 combined years of medical and surgical experience. They strive for “Absolute Best Outcome” for each and every patient whatever the age, shape or procedure.

Here are Dee’s Tips

1. Your Health.
Be honest with yourself, you may want to look great for an event but if you are extremely stressed, recently, or often sick, or have other health issues, you should consult with your doctor and get yourself as healthy as possible for the best results possible. Remember your skin will be in a repair and rebuild phase, so you want to support that as best you can.

2. Your providers’ credentials and their actual results.
At Contour You all providers are medical professionals with years of experience taking care of patients. All providers at Contour You are certified in all the procedures we offer. Ask to see the before and after photos of the actual patients treated by your clinician.

3. Your age and hormones.
It’s a fact that the average thirty-year-old will respond better than a seventy-year-old. Age and hormones can have a big impact on your metabolism rate and weight. A good assessment of your body, health, activity level and skin, coupled with professional recommendations; most people can optimize their treatment outcomes.

4. The correct procedure for your situation.
Do you know the difference between skin laxity, fat cells, and cellulite? The nurses at Contour You will educate you on the difference. It is important to go to a practice that treats all of these, so that you are given the right procedure for your specific needs, and not just what they offer. Many times the best outcome is a combination.

5. Your nutrition and lifestyle.
If you have 3 glasses of wine a night, rarely sleep eight hours, and go, go, go, you may want to take a few weeks off that particular lifestyle – before your procedure. Optimally you may want to consider a healthy diet, including adding healthy fats and lots of hydration for a month before and after.
