Is Plastic Surgery Right for You?

To be considered a good candidate for plastic surgery, patients must first meet with Dr. Sanders for a one-on-one consultation. During this appointment, he will perform a full examination of your troubled area or areas, talk to you about your treatment options, answer any questions you have about your chosen plastic surgery procedure, and work with you to develop a treatment plan that suits your needs from start to finish. 

Additionally, Dr. Sanders will screen you to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure you wish to have. While candidacy requirements will vary from surgery to surgery, in general, Tarzana patients should:

  • Be in good overall health
  • Be in good mental health
  • Have realistic expectations for their final results
  • Choose plastic surgery for themselves and not others
  • Be a non-tobacco user or promise to quit using tobacco products for the time required by Dr. Sanders 

Cost of Plastic Surgery

The cost of plastic surgery varies from patient to patient. Factors that can influence the cost of your surgery include:

  • The type of plastic surgery procedure you choose
  • Whether or not you combine plastic surgery procedures into a single surgical event
  • How much change you desire from your procedure
  • Whether or not you choose a procedure that involves implants
  • Anesthesia cost

When you meet with Dr. Sanders for your initial consultation, he will provide you with a cost estimate for your plastic surgery procedure.

Recovery from Plastic Surgery

Because everyone who chooses plastic surgery is unique, everyone’s recovery from plastic surgery will be unique as well. Depending on the type of procedure you have performed, you can expect your recovery to last between 10 days and 3 weeks.

Any surgical procedure that involves cutting the skin will result in a degree of swelling and bruising. Therefore, Tarzana plastic surgery patients should be prepared for these side effects. But don’t worry—this is normal, and you will see improvement within a week or two.
