Are You a Good Plastic Surgery Candidate?

Because every client is unique, the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for plastic surgery in Knoxville is to let a board-certified plastic surgeon assess your personal needs and aesthetic goals. During a private consultation, Dr. Kleto can evaluate certain candidacy factors to make sure that you will have a safe procedure with successful results.

Some of the criteria he will evaluate include:

  • Your overall health – You’ll have a better recovery period and get back on your feet faster if you’re in good general health. If you are overweight, have serious health problems or drink excessively, you may not be a suitable candidate for surgery. Additionally, if you smoke, your ability to heal after surgery can be compromised.
  • Your expectations and goals – While plastic surgery can correct a great deal of problems and Dr. Dean Kleto has the experience and technology necessary to help you achieve your goals, each procedure has limitations and your expectations need to be realistic. If you understand the function of the procedure you’ve chosen and have goals, you’ll have a more satisfying experience.
  • Your knowledge of potential risks – Each plastic surgery procedure, from breast augmentation to rhinoplasty (nose job), comes with inherent risks. Dr. Kleto’s experience will minimize those risks, but you will still need to understand them before undergoing any procedure.

Once Dr. Kleto determines your candidacy, he will also help you determine which procedure is right for you. Sometimes the procedure you think you need isn’t always the most effective one to meet your needs.
