What questions should I ask my liposuction surgeon at the consultation?

There are questions which apply to all types of procedures such as how many years have you been doing this procedure, what are the success rates of this surgery and what qualifications do you have.

These and many others can be viewed in our other sections and in the General Cosmetic Surgery section.

There are so many questions to ask that it’s a good idea to write these down beforehand. Take a list of these in with you when you meet with a surgeon and ask each one in turn.

You can either note down the answers or record the consultation on a Dictaphone or some other recording device.

Every cosmetic procedure will have its own set of questions. Here is a list of questions related to liposuction:

  • How long does liposuction take?
