3 Essential Questions to Ask Before Plastic Surgery
As you were taught throughout the school, there’s no such thing as a bad question. Deciding to undergo cosmetic surgery is a big (and ultimately life-changing) decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s important that you feel comfortable and confident enough with your surgeon to voice any questions or concerns you may have. To help prep for your upcoming consultation, we put together a list of the top three essential questions you should ask to ensure a pleasant and safe cosmetic surgery experience.
1. Are you board certified?
First and foremost, you need to be sure that your surgeon is board-certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. If the answer is yes, you can move forward with the procedure feeling comfortable at the fact that you are in the hands of a nationally accredited and state-certified facility. Being board certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery is a testament to having attained the highest level of training, expertise, and experience.
2. What type of anesthesia will I receive?
As with any surgery, you can expect to be put under anesthesia. Whether it be local or general, anesthesia is statistically very safe when administered by a qualified anesthesiologist. We recommend asking your surgeon for a chance to meet your designated anesthesiologist before your operation, as a way to help calm your nerves and give you an opportunity to ask any further questions you may have.
3. What will the total cost be?
The cost of each procedure will vary per person. Typically, insurance will not cover any elected cosmetic surgery. Fortunately, we have plenty of different financial options and payment plans for you to choose from.
