Although it may be just a knife on the eyelids, it is not a heart surgery. However, after surgery, you still have to know all the benefits and risks of surgery.
Moreover, plastic surgery is an industry that is in a good position. Many non-orthopaedic specialists are also shaping patients. You must be more careful.
Of course, you must also measure your own economic, health, and psychological conditions to decide whether you want to undergo plastic surgery.
The first stage: psychological construction
First, ask yourself: Is your health healthy?
In some physical conditions, plastic surgery must be excluded. Such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or allergic to anesthesia, coagulation problems, it is not suitable for plastic surgery, director of the general surgery department of Hospital.
What is your expectation? Can you accept imperfect results?
You must ask yourself honestly: “Why do you need surgery?” Then discuss with the doctor whether you can do it medically and seek a reasonable expectation.
And you must know in advance that “the eyes of the double eyelids may not be exactly the same, the nose of the nose may not be completely straight, and the breast augmentation cannot be touched,” the president of the Chinese Hospital, admitted.
No one wants to fail surgery, but if it fails, there must be psychological preparation to deal with the consequences.
Can your time match?
Any simple plastic surgery requires at least one week of recovery time, so if you want to reshape, you must collect good information, choose a hospital, doctor, and go to surgery at the beginning of a long vacation.
If you have a plan to go abroad, don’t forget to take photos and change your passport. Dr. X has already encountered too many patients who have been blocked in the customs.
When the body and mind are ready, you must get enough information before making a decision.
Second stage: collecting information
Next, you should collect information through various channels.
Plastic surgeons have a lot of websites and advertisements. Are they credible? “Half of the doctors who advertise are not specialists in plastic surgery,” a plastic surgeon said.
An office worker found that the doctor who saw a cold in the downstairs of her family actually moved to the downtown area to help people shape, and also advertised on buses and newspapers and magazines.
Moreover, the advertisement content doctor can arbitrarily indicate his qualifications and training background, and does not need to be verified by the government unit or the publication media. Therefore, when looking at the plastic surgeon’s advertisement, in addition to dazzling the effect of “before and after plastic surgery”, don’t forget to see if the doctor is a member of the “Orthopedic Medical Association” or “Surgical Surgery Medical Association”.
It should also be noted that doctors who are often interviewed or reported by the media are not necessarily qualified or powerful doctors. It is likely that the doctor knows the rhythm of the media and understands the needs of the media. Some people will take “positive evidence” and see that the effect of friend plastic surgery is good, the process is also well taken care of, will go to see the same doctor.
However, many doctors have reminded that such doctors can indeed be included in your doctor’s list, but you must also know that everyone is different. If you do well, it does not mean that you can do well.
If you have an employee who knows the hospital, it seems to be a good source of information. Most of the hospital staff know the strength and character of the doctor.
The third stage: the first diagnosis
It seems that there is not much information to judge, you have to rely on your own judgment, do not ignore the precious opportunity of new diagnosis.
Because as long as it is surgery, you need a second opinion , suggest that you go to more than two hospitals, observe the following points, can help you determine whether the doctor is responsible doctor.
1. Is there a certificate from the Plastic Surgery Medical Association or the Aesthetic Surgery Medical Association?
Look at the wall of the waiting room for a certificate from the Plastic Surgery Medical Association or the Aesthetic Surgery Medical Association. If you don’t have one, you can ask the doctor directly. If the doctor says it doesn’t matter, or the answer is confusing, you should be careful.
2. Does the waiting room provide relevant information?
A public-oriented doctor will focus on patient education and should provide relevant information in the waiting room, but a privately-oriented doctor will sell the product in the waiting room.
3. Do you want to buy cabbage, but the doctor sells radish?
If you want to cut your double eyelids, the doctor looks at your face and says, “Would you like to do the laser by the way, I am 30% off,” you must be careful, a responsible doctor should not take the opportunity to make a profit.
4. What is his attitude towards other patients who are being reviewed?
Lawyer director of the Consumers Foundation, suggested that doctors and nurses can also observe the attitudes of patients who are returning to the clinic, and whether they will have different attitudes before and after collecting money.
5. Ask the doctor to explain the risks of this operation?
Ask your doctor to explain in detail the risk of the surgery you want to do. If the doctor describes the surgery as simple as a manicure, it is a big problem.
6. How many cases have he done in surgery like this?
You never want to be a doctor’s white mouse. To give an example, before Miss A received plastic surgery for small ear, the doctor said, “I am relieved. I have done a lot of this operation. I have only failed two cases.” Unfortunately, Miss A’s surgery also failed. Afterwards, the doctor admitted that Miss A is the third case of small ear surgery he has done.
7. How many knives does he open a day?
You only have one face, you don’t want the doctor to be too tired, just come in and open your knife.
8. How many assistants does he have?
If the doctor has only one person and then runs in his own office (which is actually quite a lot), you may have to worry a bit.
9. How did he describe the results of the operation?
A responsible doctor will explain the facts. For example, “How much can your nose improve through this operation,” and will not say, “If you do this surgery, you will become a fairy.”
10. Did he mention postoperative pain, wounds, and possible infections and comorbidities?
If not said, the doctor has not fulfilled his duties and the patient has the right to receive all the information.
Plastic surgery is a serious matter, and if you take it seriously, you will be able to get satisfactory results.
