Planning Your Surgery
It is important to think about having any form of cosmetic enhancement very carefully indeed. You must be totally honest with yourself (and your surgeon) about why you are considering surgery.
"Right reasons, right time, right place and right surgeon are key to a successful cosmetic outcome" says Mr Henley.
The decision to undergo surgery should not be taken lightly and if you do decide to go ahead, your treatment or surgery should be carefully planned.
As Mr Henley points out "cosmetic surgery is not like going for a hair cut – it won’t grow out if you don’t like it."
