Safety in Surgery

If you’re considering cosmetic surgery it’s vital to get the right advice at the consultation stage. Take time to do your research and don’t be afraid to ask questions, you should never feel rushed into any cosmetic procedure.

All prospective patients should be aware that cosmetic surgery is not without risks, and before going ahead with any type of procedure, no matter how small, it’s important to find out all the facts. Your surgeon should be open and honest about what to expect and any potential complications, they should also be able to provide proof of their qualifications, level of training, and amount of experience in your chosen procedure.

The BAAPS believe that every patient should expect high quality care, and has the right to fully understand every aspect of their surgery from pre-op right through to aftercare, before agreeing to go ahead with any procedure.
