Making The Decision To Have Cosmetic Surgery
Making the decision to go ahead with a Cosmetic Surgery procedure is certainly not one to be taken lightly. This is because the outcomes of cosmetic surgery often can have life-changing effects. We have put this page together to provide you with all the resources and information you need to make a preliminary assessment before you come to a final decision.
Each individual patient must be involved in decision-making, and it is the role of the cosmetic surgeon to ensure that the decision is ‘informed’. This means that meaningful dialogue must take place, and cosmetic surgeons must first understand what matters to the patient, so that appropriate information may be provided. This information must include the pros and cons of different decisions, including not having a procedure.
