Who is the ideal candidate for cosmetic surgery?

The ideal candidate depends on the specific treatment, but in general terms, we are looking at a patient who is a healthy, non-smoker, does not have high blood pressure, does not require anti-coagulants, is in their late 40s or early 50s, where the impact of the surgery is highest.

This person would have a clear appreciation and understanding of what they desire from the procedure, and at the time both understands and accepts the risks that come with the surgical procedure.
