THE NEW YOU
Cosmetic Surgery could give a real boost to your life, and your self conﬁdence We’re sometimes unhappy about aspects of our appearance, and so cosmetic surgery can often bring a real improvement to our quality of life and boost our self-conﬁdence. If you are considering cosmetic surgery, you want to know you will be in the safest, most qualiﬁed hands. A good surgeon should not recommend surgery if he or she isn’t conﬁdent it will achieve the results you would like, or if there is a clinical reason why it wouldn’t be appropriate. They should always talk through your expectations and only recommend surgery if it is right for you. Before undertaking any type of cosmetic treatment or surgery there are some important points you should consider. This will help you prepare for an initial consultation with your surgeon so that you can ask questions about what’s important for you, for instance, realistic results, time for recovery, associated risks, etc - and then make a well-informed decision.
