If you’re keen on removing those final few inches of fat, you may be considering liposuction. Your greatest task now is locating the right surgeon to perform the procedure.
To get you started, First Health Finance provides readers with a list of registered specialists. However, be aware that we are not affiliated with any of them and cannot vouch for their expertise. You have to search for one that suits you best, and here’s how:
1. Find a doctor that can answer your questions
Medical practitioners are responsible for supplying you with all the necessary information regarding your liposuction. Try and choose one that you feel comfortable with. That way, you can voice your concerns and ask for any else you need – before treatment.
The best surgeonswelcome questions and offer clear, honest and detailed explanations, because they want you to have realistic expectations. This usually proves that they:
- Are patient and putting you first
- Know the procedure very well
- Anticipate and plan for the unexpected
- Probably discussed the same topic with many patients before you
You want a specialist who shows this level of talent and experience, and who takes an unhurried approach to your care.
2. Don’t rush your decision
Even after you have the information you need, never allow anyone to pressure you into a particular procedure, especially not your surgeon.Carefully consider why the person might be rushing you:
- Does he or she truly understand how big the decision is for you?
- Aren’t there other patients on their waiting list?
- Is he or she thinking about you or the money to be made?
It’s also worth investigating whether the surgeon you choose is just starting out, is lacking business or has recently lost a lot of clients. This is an excellent indication of the quality of their work.
3. Cheap doctors can cost you more
Be careful of letting the price of cosmetic surgery dictate your end results. There’s a reason why some practitioners charge hefty sums and others offer discounts. So think quality first.
The liposuction procedure requires skill and experience. Therefore, surgeons typically set their prices according to their expertise and list of happy patients. The good ones never hurry, treat your body like a work of art and take pride in your final appearance.
A rushedor unqualified alternative may mess up the operation, leaving you with little to no visible change, or unsightly bumps and scars. Are you prepared to spend more money to repair damages that weren’t even there before?
What exactly are you paying for?
To gain a better understanding of the cost, these are a few of the factors that determine the price of your liposuction:
- Your pre-procedure size
- The duration of your operation
- Theatre fees
- The cost of an anaesthesiologist
- Post-op necessities
Once you choose a specialist, independent credit providers like FHF can offer you liposuction financing. In this small way, we hope to make it easier to love your shape again by helping you pay for that life-changing treatment.
We strongly recommend that you request a written estimate of your total cost from your doctor. Surgeons who are clear on their fees and confident in their abilities can be candid about what they charge.
