Nervous about liposuction to the abdomen - what helps?
Nervous about surgery
It is very common to be nervous about having this type of procedure done. I would start by researching some surgeons in your area whom you would like to have a consultation with. I would recommend a board certified plastic surgeon. During your consultation have some questions ready about the concepts that are making you nervous. Your surgeon can explain the surgery, its risks and benefits, and what you can expect before, during, and after surgery. This knowledge will hopefully alleviate some of your anxiety. Best wishes!

- Your best help with your nervousness is to have confidence in your surgeon.
- Liposuction is a very safe procedure - as long as it is done in an accredited surgery center within safe limits.
- If you haven't found a surgeon yet, get several consultations and select the surgeon with whom you feel most at ease.
- At times, people need a mild sedative for a few days before surgery.
- Stretching, deep breathing, staying busy and vigorous physical activity are common ways for people to release tension and feel less nervous.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Scared of liposuction
- find a surgeon who is credentialed and reputable. RealSelf is a great place to start your research.
- Have an in person consultation
- Make sure the surgeon and their team LISTEN and understand your goals
- Ask if you're a good candidate. No sense having surgery if you're not.
- If you decide to go through, make sure your surgeon is operating in a state certified facility. Safety is important. Major surey shouldn't be happening in a hotel room or in someone's basement.
