Talk to the performing surgeon and check qualifications
Make sure that the surgeon is certified with the Plastic Surgery Board of his home country. This is VERY important. As a board member you have the privilege to call yourself a Plastic Surgeon. There are doctors who call themselves Plastic Surgeons and yet they are not members of their home Board, be aware that other medical practitioners cannot use this title. This, along with other memberships and qualifications will be listed on the surgeon’s website. Check that the doctor in Dubai holds the title of Specialist Plastic Surgeon, or one step above that, Consultant Plastic Surgeon, this means that the doctor has passed the required exams in Dubai to practice as a Plastic Surgeon here. Check his reputation and remember personal recommendations are a good starting point.
Ensure that your qualified surgeon will be the one operating throughout the entire process. By law, a physician with a current medical license, such as a GP, gynecologist, vein doctor, dermatologist, etc, can perform cosmetic procedures with no experience. Make sure that the surgeon is working together with a certified anesthesiologist and that all blood work and necessary exams have been undertaken and checked pre surgery. Always check on the medical facility where your surgery will be performed.
Research details of the procedure
Aesthetic surgery changes the appearance of the face or body, and usually this is permanent. Hence, before you undergo the surgery make sure you and the surgeon know what you want and hope to gain.
Does it for the right reasons?
These types of surgeries are not something you undergo because a friend, relative, or celebrity did it and looked great. The reasons one might opt for an aesthetic procedure might be, small fat pockets that diet and exercise won’t move, breast reduction surgery because the weight of a heavy chest is causing back problems, a face lift because you no longer look as young as you feel. There are many reasons; the reason though, must be because it’s for you, not someone else
Have Realistic Goals
Do not ask the doctor to make you look like Angelina Jolie, for example. Do not aspire to look like your favorite celebrity; a skilled Plastic Surgeon does not change the features of the face but enhances its natural and unique beauty subtly.
Prepare Questions for the Surgeon
When you visit a surgeon, it is expected that you will ask questions about the experience, and skillfulness of the surgeon. If the surgeon seems irritated or nervous answering the questions, then that person might not the right person for the job. Have some questions ready, such as how many times has the surgeon performed the procedure, where will the surgery take place, and who will be assisting them during the process.
Recommendations from friends, family, or a Facebook group is great. They can help you find the right surgeon without all the hassle. You can even judge the performance of the surgeon based on the final results of your friends and decide if they are the right cosmetic surgeon for you.
