Thank you for your question.
It Is important to be open and honest with your plastic surgeon about your anxiety. They may require you to get a clearance from your medical doctor to clear you for surgery or have an anti-anxiety medication prescribed for you to take prior to your surgery to ease your nerves and calm and relax you. It is best to have any medical or mental illnesses under control before undergoing elective cosmetic procedures. Best of luck.
