Their commitment lies in offering the support and guidance that women truly deserve during this transformative journey.

Cosmetic Surgery on the Rise: A Look at the Booming Industry

In the United States, the world of plastic surgery is flourishing, with nearly 10,000,000 cosmetic procedures performed annually. Among the most common procedures are those related to the abdomen, breast, and face. Notably, the year 2021 witnessed a significant surge in the popularity of “mommy makeover” surgeries, with over 100,000 performed in the U.S. alone. This number skyrocketed by 40% in just one year and is expected to continue its upward trajectory, largely due to the growing trends in weight loss.

Psychiatric Disorders on the Rise: Among Elective Plastic Surgery Patients

As the cosmetic surgery industry grows, so do psychiatric disorders. According to a study conducted by the National Library of Medicine, in 1960, “72.4% of 98 cosmetic surgery patients had psychiatric disorders. The study also predicts that psychiatric disorders will also be statistically significant for those seeking elective plastic surgery because a large percentage of those patients already have a history of psychiatric disorders. The most interesting find of all of the studies is that psychiatric disorders are prevalent in patients seeking elective plastic surgery, and that anxiety and depression were the most common diagnoses.” The solution, according to the study, is to ensure that every patient undergoes an assessment before, during, and after surgery.

When Expectations Collide: Understanding the Emotional Struggles After Surgery

While plastic surgery offers transformative possibilities, it’s important to acknowledge that not every patient experiences their desired outcome. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 29% of the 240,000 patients who underwent procedures such as tummy tucks and mommy makeovers reported dissatisfaction with their results. Alarmingly, a significant portion of this dissatisfaction—19% to be precise—can be attributed to emotional distress.

Emotional distress can manifest in various ways, including feelings of loss, heightened physical discomfort, increased reliance on others without adequate support systems, and heightened vulnerability that contributes to irritability and fatigue. Simple tasks such as deciding what to eat, what to wear, the logistical aspects of the surgery, and how to manage pain can become overwhelmingly challenging as patients strive to establish a new sense of normalcy post-surgery.

Due to dissatisfaction rates, the need for risk focus is paramount for the Plastic Surgery offices. Pop Recovery Systems worked with a patient, like Victoria, who didn’t understand what the surgery process encompassed and was planning to have a nurse one day after surgery and recover alone after. The Practice had no knowledge of this plan; however, when Pop Recovery Systems engaged with the patient, they quickly contacted the practice, and the surgeon’s office provided two (2) options; 1) get sufficient care or 2) cancel the surgery. Patients must be safe after receiving surgery, and lowering liability increases profit. When there is profit, surgery offices can become more innovative and worry less about patient liability.

Preparing for Success: The Need for Education in Surgical Recovery

One of the most common reasons for emotional-distress medical claims post-surgery is a lack of effective communication and education related to anxiety among their patients. Doctors must be aware of this issue and ensure that not only do they prepare their patients for physical surgery, but also the mental preparation as well. Unrealistic patient expectations can contribute to dissatisfaction and emotional turmoil; therefore, it is imperative to address physical and mental expectations holistically to improve patient satisfaction.

Shockingly, almost 85% of patients who undergo skin removal, tummy tuck, and face and neck procedures do not receive personalized post-operative care. Among the fortunate 15% who do, the care is typically self-sought, with nutritionists being the primary source of support. Notably, these nutritionists are often not affiliated with the surgeons who performed the procedures, and mental care is not even addressed.
