Before any cosmetic surgery, you’ll have an initial consultation with your surgeon. This is your opportunity to ask any questions that you might have, and is a really important part of the process.
It’s a sensible idea to think about what questions to ask your surgeon before the appointment itself. If you’re worried that you might forget them, write them down and take your notes in with you.
After the initial consultation, you may feel a little overwhelmed by the information you’ve been given. Professor Simon Kay, a consultant plastic surgeon and registered member of BAPRAS, recommends that you ask yourself the following questions before agreeing to the treatment.
Remember that you are under no obligation to agree to the surgery, even after this initial discussion with the surgeon. If during the appointment you felt pressurised in any way, then this is a definite warning sign. A reputable, qualified surgeon will not seek to force you into any decision you’re not 100% comfortable with.
