Here's what you should keep in mind before going for plastic surgery.

1 Reason it out: You should have a firm reason to undergo a plastic surgery, i.e. get it done if you actually need it and you’re not doing it to imitate others.

2 Check alternative options: Make sure you are going for the surgery after you have exhausted all other nonsurgical options.

3 Browse pictures: It’s always advisable to look for before and after photographs at your surgeon’s office. Also, discuss everything related to the post surgery care.

4 Time it well: Don’t opt for a surgery just a few days before any major occasion. Take ample time to recover.

5 Experience counts: Avoid new clinics with tempting offers. Choose an experienced surgeon. Go through his qualifications and the work profile.
