Is Second Opinion need before Cosmetic Surgery?
Sometimes to make the best decisions before having a cosmetic surgery, you should have a second opinion before you go for a cosmetic surgery. As your surgeon or doctor may tell you some other options you may like else than having a surgery.
When you make a call for an appointment with a Plastic Surgeon for a second opinion, it is not necessary to tell them that you are in need of a second opinion as there is nothing bad if you want to have a second, third or fourth opinion for the best you can get about your health and appearance. It is your own time and money which you are using and you got complete right to know which the best way out of it is. When you are going for a second opinion, you have to visit each surgeon in a way that he is the first one you are going to consult.
When you are having a secondary consultation of a surgeon, do not discuss about what does the other cosmetic surgeon (you have consulted before) thinks or recommends you to make the things according to your wish. It is more important when the recommendations of both the surgeons differ from each other. In this kind of matter ego and professional jealousies can be involved. If you know some different recommendations and you really feel like discussing it you should ask it in a different way and preface it that you have heard or read about some of these options too. After that you just have to listen and take the important notes which may help you to compare all the consultations later.
The cost of a cosmetic surgery is no doubt a definite factor for making a final decision but you should NEVER take it as you are just shopping around for the best price. After having all the opinions, you should compare all the other factors; else than prices, and if everything else is the same and just the prices of the cosmetic surgeons are different, then you should go with the lower price. But even then, if there is a cosmetic surgeon you may like but his price for the cosmetic surgery is higher than others, there can be a good reason for that.
For the best decision making about a cosmetic surgery ask the same questions while getting your second or third opinion from the Cosmetic Surgeons.
