What makes me a suitable candidate for cosmetic surgery?

The patients Mr Sudip Ghosh sees in his Milton Keynes cosmetic surgery clinics seek a wide variety of procedures. Occasionally, the conclusion reached during the cosmetic surgery consultation is that they are not suitable for a particular surgery and this can be for a number of reasons. Here are four questions to help you make a self-assessment.

1. Have you done your homework?

Do you understand how invasive a procedure is and what the risks are? Do you have a clear idea of what is involved? Mr Sudip Ghosh encourages patients to ask as many questions as they need during the consultation but it is important to have a good idea of the process beforehand.

2. How well are you?

Patients with a high BMI or certain medical conditions carry a higher risk of complications when under general anaesthetic. Prior to your consultation with Milton Keynes-based Consultant Mr Ghosh, you will be asked to fill in a medical questionnaire so Mr Ghosh will be up to speed with your medical history.

3. What do you hope to achieve?

Cosmetic surgery can boost a person’s self-confidence – but if you want it to resolve any life issues you may have then you should think on some more. To avoid dissatisfaction at a later point, it is important to appreciate what cosmetic surgery will not do and to be honest about your motivations. Candidates who have realistic expectations do, on the whole, feel happier with their final results.

4. Will you look after yourself afterwards?

Improvements made through surgery will later be undermined by significant fluctuations in weight and an unhealthy, dehydrating lifestyle. Ask yourself if it is worth having cosmetic surgery if you are not able to preserve the results. Mr Ghosh finds that his cosmetic surgery patients are so pleased with the outcome that they readily commit to a healthier lifestyle.
