Plastic surgery is a big decision to make, a big step in life, and not to be taken lightly. You are looking at changing your appearance for good. Maybe looking forward to having to work done and feeling more confidence about yourself. You may be unsure. But don’t worry. Make sure you choose a qualified, competent and experienced plastic surgeon who is regulated.
Most UK cosmetic surgery procedures are regulated by the general medical council.
To carry out cosmetic surgery, a surgeon has to be a qualified doctor, therefore they will be thoroughly trained in medicine and will have excellent knowledge of human anatomy and procedures.
Choosing a Plastic Surgeon
Choose someone who is regulated or certified by the GMC or other body, that way you know that they are answerable to someone. You have to find a surgeon who you feel comfortable with and who you feel can answer your questions honestly and responsibly rather than thinking simply about the profits that you will bring them.
Check their qualifications and history, their reviews, reviews and testimonies are important, they help you to see what care you might expect, while the surgeon himself will tell you what to expect from the procedure.
Overall, the right surgeon is the one who you feel safe with when you have done your evaluation and shopped around.
Don’t forget your doctor.
Before considering surgery, make sure that your GP is happy about it and has no concerns relating to your health. Your doctor may even know of a reputable surgeon or have other advice to offer. He or she may want to check your blood pressure and general health in order to confirm that you are fit for surgery, although a reputable plastic surgeon will also do these checks.
The NHS also offers a comprehensive guide to cosmetic surgery.
