Have Realistic Expectations

When you decide to have a cosmetic procedure done it is very important to realize what can and cannot be done. By educating yourself on the particular procedure you are considering, you will have a better idea of its limitations and will have more realistic expectations.
It’s far better to ask exactly what you can expect then to assume how it will turn out. However, from our experience most patients are quite happy and excited with their results.

Who Can Trust?
Every year, hundreds of thousands of plastic and cosmetic surgeries are performed worldwide. While most operations are performed to high standards by fully qualified specialists, a number are carried out by ill-prepared surgeons, in substandard hospitals or private clinics.

Patients should be fully informed on the quality of the hospital they are treated in, the qualifications and experience of those carrying out the operations, the possible risks, and the after care.
If you are considering cosmetic surgery, you should check out the credentials of the clinic, the consultant who will treat you, and what you are paying for.

What to look for?
Ensure your surgeon‘s registration on the medical specialist register - as well as him meeting other criteria, qualifying him/her for cosmetic surgery procedures. Don’t take for granted that a specialist registration, a plastic surgery diploma or consultancy qualifies a surgeon to have expertise in “cosmetic” surgery procedures.

Ensure your surgeon has experience and formal education in “aesthetic” surgery.
Especially full time consultants - surgeons in State Health Care hospitals are often lacking experience and formal training in aesthetic surgery procedures, as these procedures are not the main goal of State Health Services. Therefore make sure your registered specialist - consultant is not performing aesthetic surgery as “a bit on the site”.

Ensure you're given the full details of your treatment you're going to have and take your time to think about it.

Be prepared to ask questions, and ask for a second consultation to
      make sure you understand the risks and the expected outcome.

Make sure that these extra information sessions are free of charge, as it is your own and your consultant’s duty to be fully informed.

Choose your private clinic - hospital with care.
The safety and quality of medical care is regulated by international standards.
Make sure the hospital – private clinic you choose for has an up to date, official, internationally recognized, Quality Certificate for Medical & Surgical care, and even more specific for Plastic Aesthetic Surgery and cosmetic treatments.

Make sure that your initial consultation is with the treating consultant surgeon himself and not with some surgeon or consultant hopping around to collect patients for surgery abroad.

Make sure your aesthetic surgery is not performed in the same operating theatre and facilities as surgery for infected pathology.
Infections - Bacterial Cross-infection - should be avoided, but especially so in healthy cosmetic surgery patients. Check if your clinic - hospital has an overnight facility, or that you will be discharged after the operation and taken to a hotel.
Many clinics or private hospitals in Europe and the USA have no hospital rooms. Patients are taken to a nearby hotel with, at best, some paramedical supervision. A hotel room is not medically equipped and is not an ideal environment after more extensive surgery.

Make sure the fees are all inclusive. Be aware of “cheap surgery”. Make sure that fees are reasonable. Expensive is not a guarantee for high quality, but cheap isn’t either. Be aware of some low budget clinics and assure yourselves of the quality of the materials and the equipment used.
Make sure your reservation fee will be fully reimbursed in case you will decide to cancel the operation.

Cosmetic surgery does not require general anesthesia.
Keep in mind that some of the more serious risks of aesthetic surgery are due to prolonged general anesthesia. Modern aesthetic surgeons should offer alternatives such as intravenous sedation techniques to avoid these serious and unnecessary risks.
