Medical treatments, including plastic surgery, are private matters. You don’t have to tell anyone in your personal or professional life about your cosmetic decisions if you don’t want to, but you may wish to tell a handful. Some patients like to tell friends and family, others only share their experience with a spouse, and some keep their procedure a secret from everyone. Deciding which approach is right for you will require some reflection. Some of the questions our experienced facial plastic surgeon recommends asking yourself include:

  • How will my husband, wife, friends, or family respond if I tell them?
  • Will I be uncomfortable if someone I tell reacts differently than I expect or want them to?
  • Do I want or need support from others during the process?
  • Would I prefer to surprise them with the results?

These questions can help guide you in your decision-making process. Many people like to share a few details with a close friend, family member, or spouse so that they have help and encouragement at every stage of treatment. Some are excited to tell everyone about their facial plastic surgery plans and even spread the news on social media. Some individuals wait until after the procedure to tell people, so that it can be an exciting surprise. Still others opt to keep it all hush-hush, often because they feel some individuals won’t be understanding or because they like the “mystique” of the secret. If you are concerned that revealing this information to someone, such as your spouse, may not have the result you want, it is perfectly fine and reasonable to keep the experience to yourself. What’s most important to know is: there is no wrong choice.
