My philosophy has always been to deliver the best natural results I possibly can. This comes about for me through a strong foundation in training and a continual pursuit of knowledge and excellence. For my patients, this is achieved through an individually tailored plan in a safe, caring and experienced environment.
1 – Check their credentials Unfortunately in Australia, the cosmetic surgery industry is poorly regulated and doctors without specialist surgical qualifications can call themselves a surgeon. You want to ensure your surgeon is well trained, experienced, and has a specialist qualification. Check if your surgeon is a specialist
2 – Decide what you want Seems simple but if you can be specific on what you want and why, then your surgeon is more likely to understand your wishes and be able to achieve the realistic outcome you are looking for. It will also help avoid the trap of being talked into a procedure you do not need.
3 – Talk to People You may have friends or family who have undergone the procedure or know doctors or nurses who can recommend and give a first hand experience. Forums are also a good place to learn about a procedure or a surgeon.
4 – Go for a Consultation or Two Meet your prospective surgeon and ensure they understand your needs and hear you clearly. A good surgeon should advise you not only about the procedure but also its risks, realistic outcomes, recovery and alternatives. If you feel you cannot establish a comfortable rapport, then they are probably not the surgeon for you.
5 – Cooling Off Period Take time to process the information and ask questions. Seek a second opinion if you need. Do not rush into a surgical procedure without having all your concerns addressed. This may be a once in a lifetime decision on your body and you need to ensure you have done the due diligence to ensure you are making the right decision.
