What should I ask my surgeon?
You may have a little knowledge or you may have a lot of knowledge about your chosen surgery, but you should always research a little yourself before you visit clinic for your one-on-one. Know what you are stepping into. By looking on Internet and perhaps ringing around several clinics asking for information you will probably be presented with a few questions you want to ask. Do not be afraid to ask questions, no matter how trivial or how stupid they seem.
There are a number of questions you should always ask a surgeon or a clinic before you make that all-important final decision. These questions should include, but not be limited to, asking about any side effects. If you are told there are no side effects you should be very wary indeed. Consider side effects on a tub of painkillers you can buy over counter. The list is seemingly endless, and having cosmetic surgery will undoubtedly have a longer list of potential side effects than taking a couple of Paracetemol. Question your surgeon about his experience and qualifications. Usually certificates will be framed on wall of their office, if not, do not be afraid to ask. A reputable surgeon will be only to please to show you his certificates.
Ask how long treatment will take and how much time will be needed to recover. Ask is there are any alternatives, surgical or non-surgical. Once you have all facts you will be in a position to make a better informed and accurate decision.
The bottom line on cosmetic surgery.
Many people consider and have cosmetic surgery and decrease in price has brought with it a wider array of potential treatments. Surgery isnít always necessary but, if you have your heart set on it, then be sure to thoroughly research every aspect of your treatment, clinic you intend to use and surgeon who will carry out procedure. Ask plenty of questions about experience, qualification and side effects. Once you have all knowledge, and if you are sure you want to proceed then at least you know you have done as much as possible to make sure your cosmetic surgery is done safely.
