  3. Do I know all the details of the procedure? What exactly does it entail?
  4. Can I handle the weeks of pain and numbness after the operation? Am I prepared for the recovery process?
  5. Am I fully aware of all possible complications, including infections and scars?
  6. Can I afford this procedure? Is there room in my budget to finance the operation, recovery and after-surgery upkeep?
