Cosmetic Surgery checklist:

It is important to understand what your procedure involves and the anticipated results. Your surgeon will be able to discuss expectations with you and share any possible side effects or complications that may occur. As well as what you will need to do after your procedure.

It is about surgical safety. Your plastic surgeon should work in reputable hospitals and clinics that comply with the highest Australian standards of safety, cleanliness, infection control, staffing and equipment.
