What Questions Should I Ask My Surgeon before getting a cosmetic surgery Facial Procedure?
Make sure you don't leave a facial cosmetic surgery consultation until you have asked (and also received satisfactory answers to) these 5 Facial surgery questions:
1. Are you RACS or (AAFPS) certified in Facial Plastic Surgery?
Why you need to ask this question: When you confirm that a cosmetic plastic surgeon is RACS or (AAFPS) certified in Facial Plastic Surgery, this answers a number of other very important questions about that surgeon’s level of training, experience, and also their commitment to patient safety.
The frightening fact is that in Australia, any licensed physician can legally perform a cosmetic procedure--even a doctor who has never had any training in cosmetic surgery! One of the most effective ways to help ensure your surgery will be performed by a qualified individual is a safe option to choose a properly certified cosmetic plastic surgeon.
What Is RACS?
RACS stands for the “Royal Australasian College of Surgeons”
This college was first established in 1927 and is the body responsible for training and examining all surgeons in Australia and New Zealand. It is the only body recognised by the Australian Medical Board as being able to certify a doctor as suitably qualified to undertake surgery procedures. A doctor who is a Fellow of the RACS will have the initials FRACS after their name to signify that they have received extensive training in specific surgery procedures.
What does (AAFPS) stand for?
AAFPS stands for The “Australasian Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery”
The Australasian Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery (AAFPS), the only group of qualified specialists in Australasia focusing solely on facial cosmetic & reconstructive procedures.
If you visit a surgeon who is certified in a related field, such as plastic surgery, be sure to inquire about any specific cosmetic surgery training and experience that individual has undergone.( Not all plastic surgeons have comprehensively educated in cosmetic surgery; classic plastic surgery certification is weighed towards vast experience with reconstructive procedures .)
2. How frequently do you perform the the Facial procedure procedure(s) that I want?
Why is this question such an important one to ask your Doctor?, You want to ensure that the cosmetic surgeon you choose is well-versed in the facial surgery procedure you are interested in so that you receive the desired outcome.
It is very common for cosmetic plastic surgeons to specialize in specific types of procedures in Sydney, such as facial cosmetic surgery. Considering the overall benefits of choosing a cosmetic surgeon who performs the type of procedure you are interested in as a large part of his or her Cosmetic or Plastic Surgery practice.
Reason being is because that surgeon will be more than likely to have worked with a various number of patients with overall different body types and will most likely be skilled in the most up to date techniques.
3. What type of anaesthesia will I receive, and who will provide my anaesthesia on the day of my surgery?
Why you need to ask this question: Discussing your various options when it comes to anaesthesia should help you prepare physically and mentally for a safe, smooth procedure.
While cosmetic surgeons vary in the type of anaesthesia their using, it depending on the nature of the facial surgery procedure and the individual patient's requirements, all cosmetic surgery procedures will require some type of anaesthesia.
Both local and general anaesthesia are statistically very safe when performed by a qualified cosmetic surgery provider. The best type of anaesthesia for any patient is unique in nature.
While local anaesthesia does offer various advantages, such as shorter initial recovery time, general anaesthesia is most usually necessary for far more complex procedures, such as abdominoplasty “Tummy Tuck”, a full Sydney facelift, or when several plastic or cosmetic procedures are being performed.
No matter what certain type of anaesthesia a Sydney cosmetic surgeon recommends, make sure that you ask your potential surgeon which one of the surgical staff on hand will be administering your anaesthesia.
This person should be ANZCA certified physician anaesthesiologist Having a dedicated anaesthesiology family of doctors on staff ensures you have qualified professionals who will be monitoring you throughout your facial procedure(s) and that also allows the cosmetic surgeon to focus on reaching your desired surgery outcome in Sydney.
(ANZCA) stands for: The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists * Source
This is another great reason to limit your search to only (ANZCA) certified cosmetic surgeons--(AAFPS) certified surgeons only work with licensed, trained anaesthesiology professionals in accredited surgical practices.
4. What will my recovery from Facial Surgery in Sydney be like?
Why you need to ask your cosmetic surgery physician this question?: You need to understand the the detailed recovery process and what it entails before you decide if this is the right time for you to have a cosmetic surgery procedure?
Ask the Sydney cosmetic surgeon how much time will it take before your back to normal daily activities, such as work, childcare, and going to the gym. Before you schedule cosmetic or plastic surgery Sydney, you need to make sure you can manage being out of action for a few days or sometimes weeks, depending on how complex a facial cosmetic procedure you are thinking about.
Part of this discussion should include what specific limitations you can expect to endure. For instance, the vast majority of patients need to avoid lifting heavy objects including a small child for a few weeks after your surgery.
It could be that deferring your facial surgery procedure or choosing a less invasive procedures are in your best interest: your Sydney cosmetic surgeon can explain various alternatives and can help you choose what currently suits your current objective with Sydney Plastic Surgery or Sydney Cosmetic Surgery.
5. What will be the total cost of my facial cosmetic surgery procedure?
Why you need to ask your Sydney surgeon this question?: Because cosmetic surgery is elective, you can expect to be solely responsible for all fees as it’s not covered by medicare apart from in certain extreme cases.
The total expenditure for any surgical procedure will include surgeon's fees, anesthesia, operating room costs, and any materials involved. Each of the various patient's situations is a unique one, and the cost for a procedure will vary depending on your specific needs and objectives.
A reputable Sydney cosmetic surgeon will provide you a very detailed, individual quote of their fees, which is generally good for a month after your consultation, to give you time to think about your plastic or cosmetic surgery financing options.
Ready to start asking those questions to your Sydney Plastic Surgeon or Sydney Cosmetic Surgeon?
5. What will be the total cost of my facial cosmetic surgery procedure?
While price should factor into your decision whether or not to have a procedure-after all, you need to be prepared to cover the costs. You should never select a Sydney cosmetic surgeon based on price as the only factor.
Beware of any fee quote that sounds far too good to be true: there are a lot of unscrupulous physicians who offer discounted cosmetic surgery procedures and who may cut corners on operating room safety measures or have inadequate support staff on hand, you don't want to go bargain shopping with any facial plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery procedures.
Beware of any fee quote that sounds far too good to be true: there are a lot of unscrupulous physicians who offer discounted cosmetic surgery procedures and who may cut corners on operating room safety measures or have inadequate support staff on hand, you don't want to go bargain shopping with any facial plastic or cosmetic surgery procedures.
If price concerns you, instead of looking for a bargain, ask the cosmetic surgeon you think is most qualified to help you about their financing alternatives. Most Cosmetic Surgery practices have a staff member who specialises in coordinating their patients financing to help you apply for a payment plan or loan that best suits your current financial needs.
