What are the risks involved with this procedure?
Can you tell me about your previous experiences with this procedure and provide examples, such as before & after photographs, etc?
What accreditations do you and your facility hold? (Is the surgeon board certified and with whom? What are the credentials of the anaesthetist and other surgical staff?).
Researching The Best Plastic Surgeons In The World… For You!
