How Can I Make Sure My Liposuction Doctor Is Good?
There have been a number of well-publicized events lately which point to the need for liposuction safety. Recently there was a court case which discussed the cosmetic surgery-related death of the former First Lady of Nigeria. Another recent complication during a surgery left a young American woman in a coma. Although such large scale accidents are fairly rare, they do nonetheless happen.
More commonly, there are other sorts of complications. These range from skin or tissue damage to anesthesia complications to unpleasant or unattractive results. No one wants to undergo an unsafe or unsuccessful surgery. When people's bodies and large amounts of their money are on the line, people want to get the very best they can.
One of the very most important things in insuring that your liposuction (also referred to as lipoplasty and suction lipectomy) is both safe and effective is your choice of surgeons. A good surgeon minimizes the chances of serious complications and maximizes your chances of achieving the sort of results that you want.
So, how can a person make sure that the surgeon they pick is a good one? The first thing that people need to know is that they should do their homework. Choosing a cosmetic surgeon is something that should take study and thought. You will have to live with your results for a very long time, so why not take a little time beforehand to check what you're getting into.
Patients should find out everything they can about the surgeons that they're considering choosing. A lot of information can be found online. You can find before and after pictures of the surgeon's work, patient reviews and testimonials, and information about the surgeon's credentials, experience and training.
In your research, go beyond just what you find on a given surgeon's website. All of the things that the surgeon has put on his/her site is there for advertising purposes. Try and go beyond and see if you can find any before and after pictures, reviews and information from other sources. You want to find out if there has been any bad press about the doctor so that you can make an informed decision.
Similarly, be aware and try to learn as much as possible at your consultation. Ask a lot of questions. Remember you don't need to make your decision right away, and you shouldn't feel pressured. You are in no way obligated to choose the first surgeon you meet with. Take time to learn everything you can about the surgeon and the procedure; your body will thank you later.
