Factors to consider if you want to get it right the first time
By Dr Sahar Al Kazzaz
Dubai has the largest number of plastic surgeons by population than any other city in the world. With all this choice, it’s no wonder potential patients are confused about what to base their decision on. You obviously can’t choose a surgeon based on price – your safety is important, as is getting the result right the first time, so you don’t have to face revision surgery. Worryingly, some people select a plastic surgeon based on recommendations by celebrities or social influencers. The surgeon offers money and free services to get such an endorsement.
Of course, recommendations from friends, or the sterling reputation of a surgeon or the medical practice he or she works for, are great places to start. However, you should investigate the surgeon’s background and continue to evaluate him or her during the initial consultation.
