Annapolis plastic surgeon Chris Bolling says the only way to have a successful cosmetic procedure is to take care of it yourself.
The 54-year-old says it takes a certain level of commitment to do a procedure that’s going to look good, and it requires a certain amount of self-discipline to make it happen.
“It’s really about the self-control, because you’re going to get hurt, and you’re not going to want to do it,” Bolling told WJLA.
“I have to say, if I’m going to have to pay for it, I’m willing to pay the price for it.”
Bolling said there are no guarantees when it comes to surgery.
He said the most common surgeries are laser or reconstructive procedures, which involve removing the entire nose, mouth and eye socket.
He said the biggest risk is getting a “cavity tear” that is a tear in the bone or bone that’s holding the skin together.
Bollings told WOFL he doesn’t make the procedure mandatory for people with facial problems, but he would prefer people who have problems with their eyes to have their surgeries done.
“You have to have some type of cosmetic surgery that’s not going too well, or if it is, you can get it done, and if you’re willing to do that, you will not regret it,” he said.
