Customized Care and Attention
Liposuction surgery signifies a personal journey for a patient. Therefore, they should spend time identifying a surgeon who makes them feel at ease and who is willing to offer them adequate time to answer their questions and address their concerns.
The patient should be able to reach out to the surgeon during the surgical process as well as the recovery phase.
Ideally, the surgeon should have operating privileges at one or more local hospitals or accredited surgery centers. In the exceptional case of an emergency, the patient would be guaranteed quick access to a hospital.
Hospitals also conduct thorough background checks before awarding privileges. This serves as a further assurance to patients when deciding on a plastic surgeon.
