Be informed before having a cosmetic surgery procedure

There are some key questions that you need ask yourself, and your prospective Plastic Surgeon, before you have a cosmetic surgery procedure – no matter how simple it all may sound.

You may feel you don’t need to ask any of the questions below because you’ve already done your research. But if you are unclear, you can use them as a guide. Having cosmetic surgery is a choice – be informed and do your homework. Each procedure and individual patient carries their own potential risks and complications. Being forthright about any previous surgeries and your medical history is imperative.
