Questions to Ask Before you choose to undergo Plastic Surgery

Here we discuss a few of the questions you should ask before opting for any plastic surgery so that you experience safe and successful outcomes.

Is the plastic surgeon board certified?
Make sure the surgeon is board certified. When you choose a board-certified plastic surgeon, it assures you the extensive training the surgeon has undergone in plastic surgery. Board certifications are issued based on extremely rigorous training for years.

How experienced is the surgeon?
Make sure you ask how often the plastic surgeon has performed the procedure you desire. This is certainly not about the numbers but the experience and expertise the surgeon has. The surgeon’s relationship with the procedure should also be taken into consideration. The best surgeons do not just perform the procedure regularly, but they also excel in research work, publish the same in medical journals, engage in training and also contribute to the advancement of the procedure.

Which language does the surgeon speak?
If not mandatory, it is important that the surgeon at least understands your language. Plastic surgery is all about what you want, unlike a heart or brain surgery. So, if the surgeon is unable to understand you clearly, it may create a problem in communication and thus the desired outcome. There would be interpreters of course, but that may still create a communication gap.

Is the surgery done in a well-equipped facility?
Make sure your surgery is performed in a well-equipped facility. This will ensure that you will be taken care of by the most well-trained and capable medical staff just in case of an emergency.

Is it possible to see before and after photographs?
Make sure you see a few before and after photos of the previous clients which were dealt with by the plastic surgeon you have opted for. Pay attention to the smallest detail of the outcome of the procedure. Every plastic surgeon has their sense of beauty, so make sure you match your definition of beauty with your surgeon.

What about the risks involved?
Make sure you know about the risks of the surgery. The patient should be well informed of the complications involved before undergoing the surgery. Make sure you also discuss the benefits too.

Does the surgeon use a certified anesthetist?
Make sure you know whether the surgeon works with a certified anesthetist. The surgeon must use an MD or a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist for the anesthesia who has had rigorous training. As this is the riskiest aspect of cosmetic surgeries, make sure you get details of the anesthetist as well.

How long will be the recovery period?
Make sure to get all the details of the recovery, especially the first 48 hours. Discuss all the key points about when can you return with your daily activities and when you will start to see the surgery results. Make sure you will be given the recovery protocol for a successful recovery.

Can I go for a second opinion?
Make sure you get a second opinion either from a local doctor or from any other doctor in the destination country to get additional perspectives on the procedure you opted for. Do not hesitate to consult other board-certified plastic surgeons. This will help you in making a well-informed decision about your situation.

Can I have feedback from real people?
Make sure you rely on the most real people for valid information. It can surely be referrals in case you are opting for plastic surgery abroad. There is an ocean of misleading information on the internet and the media knows how to attract patients through their marketing networks. So, do not rely on these sources to get information on the procedure you wish to undergo.
