What should I ask in the cosmetic surgery consultation?

Before embarking on any cosmetic surgery, it is vital that you know what is involved and have the answers to all your questions – and the consultation is the time to get these. It is very common for people later to remember something they wish they had asked so you may find it helpful to take a prepared list of questions. Here are a few key questions to ask.

What are your cosmetic surgery qualifications?

When putting yourself in a surgeon’s hands you want to feel reassured that they are highly qualified. Are they on the GMC’s Specialist Register of Plastic Surgeons? By learning that your surgeon is a member of a professional body such as BAPRAS (British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons) you know they are committed to keeping up with the latest surgical advances and meeting the highest safety standards.

What is your experience?

Most surgeons will have an area of particular expertise so ask what experience they have of the procedure. How many have they performed and how often do they do it? There are a number of techniques to most types of cosmetic surgery; has your surgeon mastered a range or just one?

What are the risks?

Before making any decision it is imperative that you are aware of the potential side effects. During your cosmetic surgery consultation with Milton Keynes-based Mr Sudip Ghosh, you will talk through the procedure and have the risks explained.

What are the limitations?

While cosmetic surgery can achieve some fantastic results, it is essential that you have realistic expectations. Mr Ghosh will ask you to describe your goals and will be candid about the extent to which they can be achieved. Mr Ghosh finds that his Milton Keynes patients who go into surgery with realistic expectations are more likely to be satisfied with the outcome.
