Cosmetic surgery: Tips to avoid risks if you want to undergo surgery

Anyone who uses cosmetic surgery thinks about improving or beautifying a part of their body. The nose, the breasts, the abdomen… Even the navel can be molded at the whim of the patient thanks to the magic of the scalpel! However, behind the success of a cosmetic surgery operation, there is much more than a beautiful nose or firm and natural breasts. Plastic surgeons also take care, for example, that the organs undergoing surgery or those that are close to the operated area do not present any alteration at a functional level.

Search the Internet for doctors who have the title of plastic surgeons

People who operate without timely titration use the fact that the patient is poorly informed. In fact, according to the SECPRE survey, 65.17% who undergo cosmetic surgery do not report the qualification of the doctor who will perform it. But the Internet is a great ally since it contains all the information about a medical professional: his biography, his positive comments, his criticisms … SECPRE has a search engine where all plastic surgeons with a degree can be located who they practice in our country.

Ask three licensed plastic surgeons for advice.

It is very positive and very convenient to ask for one, two opinions, or up to three medical opinions with qualified surgeons. This will allow us to assess what interests us the most. It is common for each surgeon to give a different opinion on the same intervention since, in Plastic Surgery, there are no strict techniques. The aspect of training and experience of each surgeon here is very important: each one does well with a technique depending on each case, their ideas, their hands, and their knowledge. That is not why he is wrong.

Talk to the three surgeons face to face and see what trust they convey.

Let’s not forget that the doctor must transmit confidence. And a plastic surgeon must be, above all, a good doctor. It is not about operating well but also understanding the patient.

Go to the Internet to check the opinions about the surgeon.

Knowing who we put ourselves in is essential to avoid bad results, but you also have to know how to filter criticism, because there are difficult patients who obsess and also leave their comments.

Ask what type of hospital is going to have the operation.

If we are talking about surgeries, we must ensure that the surgeon operates in a qualified hospital. In this sense, the larger the hospital in which we are going to operate, the better. We should not consent to be operated in a licensed clinic with an operating room, even if it is in the city center. These operating rooms do not usually have an ICU or a blood bank, something that is basic in large hospitals because they are used to doing maximum operations and give operating rooms great agility and experience.
