I want to go ahead with Cosmetic Surgery what do I do next?
If you have read through everything, understand what the surgery will involve and have found a reputable surgeon then you are nearly ready to make a decision.
Remember: you can change your mind at any time.
Make sure that you are happy with everything your surgeon has told you and that you have been as equally honest with him/her.
If you are going into hospital for treatment then talk with the surgeon and his/her team or other health care professionals.
It is a good idea to discuss your cosmetic treatment with your GP. He/she will give you an objective opinion and can advise you where necessary.
If your surgeon is satisfied with your reasons for cosmetic surgery and that you are realistic about what can be achieved then surgery can be arranged.
Your surgeon will recommend that you give yourself a couple of weeks before making that final decision. This is, in effect, a ‘cooling off’ period in which you will take time to think things through and weight up the pros and cons of surgery. If you change your mind at this point then that is fine.
If you decide to go ahead with surgery then you will be given an agreement form to sign. This is, in effect, a consent form. It will contain details of the cosmetic procedure as well as the cost. These costs should be broken down so you can see what it covers. For example, does it cover the cost of aftercare and any further surgery if required?
Read the form carefully to see if there is a section regarding cancellation charges. If you change your mind after you have signed this form then you could be subject to a financial penalty. Check to see if this is included in the form.
Your surgeon or clinic will keep a record of your treatment which will include photographs taken ‘before’ and ‘after’ your cosmetic procedure. Make sure you are happy for your surgeon to show these to other patients. Your surgeon should ask for your permission to do this or to show any part of your records to other patients.
