How did I find the plastic surgeon I am planning to go to?
This is another important question you should ask yourself before you undergo any type of cosmetic changes on yourself. You should ask yourself truthfully whether you fell prey to heavy advertising or actually looked for a plastic surgeon on your own.
Like in everything else, low cost and usually heavily advertised services are not necessarily safe or effective. The best thing to do in this scenario is for you to get a referral from those who have undergone certain procedures you would like to get done. Satisfied clients will surely be able to refer you to the right doctor.
If you do not have friends or people you know who underwent a cosmetic procedure, you can always ask your physician for a recommendation.
ASKING FOR A SECOND OPINION
Second opinions are valuable and when it comes to plastic surgery, this is definitely something you should require to yourself.
You must remember that only another physician can confirm that you really need something done –whether we’re talking about a small nip or tuck or a major procedure.
A second opinion is also important for you to be able to determine whether the procedure will result to something that you want. Asking what you can expect from the procedure is the most realistic question you can ask your doctor –never mind about the things you hope for because often, a human being’s hopes on looking good are relatively unrealistic.
Aside from asking for a second opinion, you should also ask your plastic surgeon about the possibility of damage and in case this damage happens what will the extent be? One must keep in mind that plastic surgeons are not gods or goddesses and that whenever they fix something they will always leave a mark.
