Tips to improve doctor-patient relationship.
When you find yourself in the plastic surgeon's office wondering what you need to be asking your surgeon.
More often than not, we find ourselves with more questions instead of answers.
Asking the right questions will help your surgeon and improve your overall experience.
If you and your plastic surgeon work together to set reasonable goals and speak freely, you'll get the best outcomes from your procedure. Together, you and your surgeon can decide whether plastic surgery is the best option for you if you both have a clear knowledge of your objectives, expectations, and driving forces.
As a reference during your consultation, use this checklist:
Do you hold an Indian Board of Plastic Surgery certification?
Are you recognised by the National Medical Council?
Did you receive special training in plastic surgery?
Did you receive special training in aesthetic/ cosmetic surgery?
How long have you been studying plastic surgery?
Do you have permission from the hospital to carry out this procedure? If so, which medical facilities?
Is the office-based surgical facility licenced by the state, authorised by Medicare, or accredited by a nationally or state-recognized accrediting agency?
How many of these kinds of surgeries have you completed?
What are my chances of success with this procedure?
Where will you carry out my surgery, and how?
How long would it take me to recuperate, and what type of assistance will I require during that time?
What are the possible risks and side effects of my procedure?
How are problems resolved?
What choices do I have if I'm not happy with how my operation turned out?
What outcomes are reasonable for me and do you have before-and-after pictures for each surgery I may look at?

y. After all, it's not the answers that enlighten, but rather the questions.
