High school reunions, more so than college reunions or family reunions, make people take a look at who they are and what they have accomplished in their lives. Because of our sensitivity to the opinions of those around us at the hormonal whirlwind ages of 13-18, the prospect of meeting up with those people again after 10, 20, or 30 years does something important to people. And recent research indicates that it doesn't matter how big the school is, where it was, or the number of years since high school that the reunion is being held--people respond to high school reunions in the same way. They use high school reunions to gauge themselves and their lives against others and against their own sense of accomplishment. An important part of assessing yourself against peers is looking your best. If you are planning cosmetic surgery for your high school reunion, make sure you allow enough time to get the best results and recover before the event. If you think you might get Botox or injectable facial fillers, these can be done just two or three weeks prior to your reunion. Surgical treatments require a little more time to get the best results. With liposuction or tummy tuck, breast augmentation, or rhinoplasty you should allow at least six weeks before your reunion to get the best results. Looking better for your high school reunion can help you feel confidence in your achievements. To learn how you might improve your appearance before your reunion, schedule a cosmetic surgery consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits in New York, New York today.
