Common concerns about cosmetic surgery

The decision to have cosmetic surgery is not always an easy one to make. When Mr Sudip Ghosh meets prospective patients in his Milton Keynes cosmetic surgery clinic, he talks them through all that the procedure involves and asks if they have any areas of particular concern. Here are three of the most commonly voiced fears.

1. What if I’m disappointed with the results?

Cosmetic surgery has its limitations: it can produce very pleasing aesthetic improvements which in turn give self-confidence a real boost, but if you are expecting it to solve life’s problems, then you need to give it some more thought. It is vital that anyone undergoing cosmetic surgery is realistic in their expectations. To this end, Milton Keynes surgeon Mr Sudip Ghosh uses the consultation to have an unhurried discussion about a patient’s motivations and objectives. He has found that those patients who are aiming for achievable goals are the more satisfied with the outcome.

2. Is anaesthetic safe?

When under the care of a highly qualified team of surgeon and anaesthetist, general anaesthetic is very safe. There is always a risk and this is increased in patients with a high BMI or complex medical history, but Mr Ghosh will assess your fitness for surgery before making any surgical plan.

3. How prominent will the scars be?

Noticeable scars are a common deterrent to cosmetic surgery, but techniques are always being improved, allowing surgeons to produce barely discernable, fine scars. As a surgeon with many years’ experience of performing intricate procedures, and as a member of the professional body BAPRAS (British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons), Mr Ghosh keeps abreast of the latest developments in the field. At your consultation, he will give you a very clear and honest indication of the degree of scarring you can expect.
