  • How many years have you spent performing this procedure?
  • Do you perform many of these procedures?
  • Do you have any ‘before’ and ‘after’ photographs?
  • What are you success rates?
  • What can I expect to see from this surgery?
  • Do you hold a consultant post?

  • What is included (and not included) in the quote?
  • How much pain or discomfort will I have?
  • If something goes wrong can I contact you?
  • How soon will it be before I can go back to work?
