In London, rhinoplasty procedures are on the rise But although they are becoming more popular and common, inexperienced surgeons and health risks are still there. These are the only 5 tips about rhinoplasty in London you’ll ever need. Make sure your doctor is board certified. A cosmetic surgeon in London that is board certified must have 3 to 5 years experience in general surgeries and 2 to 3 more years in a plastic surgery operating room. This will ensure that your surgeon has plenty experience with patients “under the knife.” Check the surgeon’s practice records. Look to see if they have any malpractice judgements against them or if the board has had to take any disciplinary actions against them. A good surgeon generally has neither of these. Call local hospitals in London to ensure that your surgeon has hospital privileges. Although your procedure may be outpatient and performed in their private clinic, this is an important factor. Hospitals run background checks on doctors before allowing them hospital privileges. If they do not have privileges at local hospitals, that should raise a red flag. Another red flag is when your doctor tries to recommend multiple procedure at one time. Not only does the price you owe increase but your health risks increase as well. A good surgeon has your health in mind and will only recommend one procedure at a time. Go to your initial and/or pre-op appointment armed with questions. Ask how often they perform rhinoplasty procedures (weekly is a good answer). Also, research the health risks of a rhinoplasty and asked to be informed about their complications statistics. Always remember, no question is a stupid question.
