Choosing an experienced and fully qualified surgeon is key when it comes to achieving your aesthetic goals.
If you are considering plastic surgery, it is important that you take the time to choose a surgeon that fully understands your aesthetic goals, concerns and needs. Read on to find out what you should know about your surgeon before going ahead with your procedure of choice.
What organisations are they part of?
When considering a plastic surgeon, be sure that they are board-certified, and that they are members of the relevant Australian professional organisations, such as the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons. The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons is the body for specialist plastic surgeons and consults with state and federal government, as well as legislative and regulatory authorities in order to advocate for patients and ensure the highest level of care.
If your surgeon is a member of the organisation, you can rest assured that they are fully qualified and have the expertise that you require for your treatment.
What services do they offer?
When it comes to choosing your surgeon, it is important that you find a professional who is able to provide you with the services that you are seeking. There is a wide range of procedures available in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery, and it is advisable that you choose a surgeon who has expertise suited specifically for your needs.
The best starting point is to consult with your surgeon and speak to them about your needs and expectations. They will be able to let you know if you are suited to the treatment in which you are interested and address any questions that you have about the process.
Some of the most popular aesthetic and reconstructive treatments available include breast, body contouring, skin cancer and hand surgery. An experienced plastic surgeon will also be able to provide paediatric and trauma surgery.
What do you need to know about your treatment?
One of the best things you can do when you consult with your plastic surgeon is to ask for all the information you need about your chosen procedure. Your surgeon should be able to address any concerns that you have and provide you with the details you need to fully understand your treatment. When you see your surgeon for a consultation, it is important that you are open and honest about your aesthetic goals so that they can do their best to achieve your desired results.
Your surgeon should also be able to discuss any possible complications and risks with you, as well as what to expect from the recovery process.
