In recent years, the number of cosmetic procedures has increased considerably, unfortunately the procedures performed by unlicensed physicians also have increased, and most of them do not complete the minimum requirements.
This has led to an increase in the number of patients with complications and unsatisfactory results that lead to permanent complications or future problems. For this reason, we reiterate that undergoing cosmetic treatment should not be taken lightly, you must inquiring about the clinic’s and making an exhaustive search for trained doctors is essential.
Here are some recommendations to take if you have already decided to undergo in to a procedure
Meet your doctor
You must go to a direct consultation with the surgeon who performs the procedures so he can solve all the specific doubts you may have, when you go to the clinic you have to meet him directly, do not accept assessment inquiries from someone else who works in the clinic as sales staff, receptionists or nurses, since all questions must be solved by a professional who explains to you in detail how this will be carried out.
It is necessary to check that their licenses are valid, make sure that they are part of the association that validates their specialty as well as the fulfillment of their studies and accreditations necessary to work.
Plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons are different, the first mentioned have training to perform reconstructive aesthetic treatments, some specialties offer aesthetic treatments, this is the case of ophthalmologists, dermatologists and otorhinolaryngologists.
