Reasons to Postpone Your Surgery

By The Landings Surgical Centre on September 03, 2018

Resting in a hospital bedExperienced plastic surgeons, Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau have helped countless people in and around Halifax, NS. Whether it’s a body contouring surgery to remove fat and tighten skin or a facial rejuvenation surgery to fight signs of aging, the Landings Surgical Centre is here to help.

Help can take many forms, and that includes letting patients postpone or delay their surgery if needed. Below are some common reasons why patients may postpone their plastic surgery procedure. Don’t feel bad if you need more time before you undergo surgery.

You’re Having Second Thoughts About Surgery

If you’re having any doubts about plastic surgery, you shouldn’t go through with it. Period. Patients need to feel confident about decision to undergo a cosmetic procedure, no matter what it is. If you have any qualms whatsoever, postpone the surgery and give yourself a moment to think. Consider why you want to undergo surgery and the expectations to you about the procedure.

After postponing the surgery, you may find that you don’t want to get surgery after all. That is totally fine, and it’s good that whatever decision you make is one you can feel completely confident about.

You’re Having Second Thoughts About the Surgeon

Sometimes the second thoughts aren’t personal but instead professional in nature. You may start thinking the surgeon or surgical facility isn’t right for you. Even if you’re confident about getting surgery, it’s important that you can trust the surgeon doing the work.

If you do not feel like your surgeon is right for you or won’t meet your needs, postpone surgery. Rethink this partnership. You may wind up looking for another surgeon you have better chemistry with.

You’ve Come Down with a Cold or Fever

So you’re ready for cosmetic surgery and feel confident about the work being done and the surgeon performing the procedure. A day or two before the surgery, you come down with a cold. Believe it or not, that could be grounds for postponing surgery. Having a cold or fever could make recovery more difficult, and could increase the risk of infection.

You’ll want to discuss these matters with your surgeon. Sometimes the surgery can proceed as planned depending on the severity of the cold and the timing.

You’ve Experienced a Serious Health Issue

You may come down with something more serious than a cold in the lead up to surgery. Perhaps you have a serious cardiovascular health problem, suffer an athletic injury, or are involved in an accident. All of these events can make the surgery and recovery process a health concern.

It’s important that you recovery from these matters before you undergo any sort of elective procedure. Focus on health before enhancing your looks.

Your Personal Life Won’t Accommodate Surgery

Life is what happens when you’re making other plans. Sometime may pop up by surprise that throws off your schedule, meaning that a surgical procedure will need to be postponed and rescheduled. This covers everything from surprise visits from loved ones to personal tragedies within your family. Take care of those matters first so you’re clear-headed and relaxed heading into surgery.

Your Professional Life Won’t Accommodate Surgery

Work is what happens when you’d rather be living your life. You may not be able to get the time off you need for surgery, or perhaps a major job has come up that you have to complete no matter what. When this happens, you can shift the date of your surgery so you can focus on your career.
