Top Tips to Help Ensure your Cosmetic Surgery Procedure is a Success

Posted on 4 July 2016
Undergoing a cosmetic surgery procedure is never without risk, and the same applies to any operation. Even non-surgical procedures such as facial fillers and injections can backfire, which is why it’s so important to be fully informed before agreeing to undergo any form of plastic surgery.

While only a small percentage of patients experience problems, TV reality shows like “Botched” have helped to raise awareness of the possible issues that can occur. Sometimes, the medical practitioner is to blame; in other instances, the patient has an allergic reaction or develops a post-operative infection. Therefore, it’s essential that you do your research and ask as many questions of your surgeon as possible before you sign on the dotted line.

If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got four top tips that can help ensure your procedure doesn’t go wrong.

1) Don’t be afraid to be fussy
If the person performing your procedure isn’t fully qualified and/or experienced, things are more likely to end in disaster. You should check whether they have the FRCS (Plast) qualification (which is awarded by the Royal College of Surgeons upon completion of training), and that they are a member of BAAPS and/or BAPRAS. Find out more about how to choose the right cosmetic surgeon.

2) Ask your surgeon about the risks
Any cosmetic surgeon worth their salt will be happy to tell you about any possible risks that are commonly associated with your chosen procedure.

3) Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages?
Once you’ve found out about the potential risks, it’s time to decide whether you’re prepared to deal with the fallout if you’re unfortunate enough to become one of the few patients whose surgery goes wrong.

4) Do some detective work
If you research holidays and goods prior to purchasing, why wouldn’t you want to check out your surgeon online? After all, anyone can make an enticing website and add flattering testimonials. So, don’t neglect to search the internet for chat rooms and review sites where your surgeon’s previous patients may have published positive or negative feedback.

Finally, don’t forget that Liberate Cosmetic Surgery is always here to help. So, if you have any burning questions or concerns about a particular procedure, get in touch with us today.
