Who Should I Tell About My Plastic Surgery In San Antonio? By Constance M. Barone, M.D. on October 07, 2019

The Benefits Of Sharing

Sharing information about your cosmetic surgery can have several benefits. First, you may need help during recovery.  Telling at least one friend of family member about your procedure can be beneficial, whether you need someone to pick up your prescriptions, or just drive you home from the procedure. If you’re scheduling a “mommy makeover” you will need help taking care of your kids, especially if they are very young. 



Second, many patients benefit from the emotional support they give and receive from the plastic surgery community. Whether you use a website like RealSelf, or just chat with your neighbors and friends, talking openly about your procedure can bring emotional benefits. The best plastic surgeons in San Antonio will always be able to answer your questions, but another patient may provide a connection and insight that only comes from experiencing surgery first hand. In addition to gaining these benefits yourself, when you share your experience you could be helping another woman along her journey. 


When To Keep Your Surgery A Secret

Your medical information is private, and only you decide when to share it. You should never feel pressured into talking about your cosmetic surgery. There are several reasons women choose to keep their experience to themselves. Some patients are shy, and don’t want the attention brought to their appearance and experience. Other patients simply prefer not to talk about their medical procedures. No matter what your reason, it is valid.


You may also choose to tell certain people, but keep it a secret from others, which is a very common approach. You may have a relative, friend, or coworker with negative feelings toward plastic surgery. Setting healthy boundaries is important for your confidence and emotional well-being.
