5 Important Questions For Your Surgeon
5 Important Questions For Your Surgeon
  1. What are my options, from non-surgical to surgical, to help with this problem?
  2. How much experience do you have for performing this particular procedure? Can I see pictures of the work you’ve done? (An honest doctor will tell you that 3%-5% of scars are bad scars. He should also show you a range of results – average, wows and not-so-good results.)
  3. What is your background? Where did you train?
  4. Have you been the subject of any malpractice suits? (In our litigious society, the average plastic surgeon is sued once every three years.)
  5. What can I expect from the procedure? (If you’re a 60-year-old woman and a doctor tells you he’s going to make you look 30, walk out the door. He’s lying to you. The honest answer is that you’re still going to look 60, but a better-looking 60.)

Good Questions
You should definitely ask these question before opting for Cosmetic Surgery.

If your cosmetic surgeon shows any sign of nervousness, then understand it that he/she do not have much experience in this field.
