With the boom in cosmetic surgery worldwide, it has become imperative for prospective patients to choose safety first.
A recent poll of 1,235 UK patients found that 61 per cent were unsatisfied with the results of their cosmetic surgery mainly because they failed to carry out adequate research.
"These results show why it is absolutely key to know everything about the surgeon and the practice carrying out your procedure," said Christiana Clogg, co-founder of thegoodsurgeonguide.co.uk, which carried out the research. "Sometimes cost can become the most important factor and low prices can be dazzling, taking priority over creditability and experience."
Two-fifths of those surveyed said they had to go back to get things corrected. Some of the ways to stay safe from botched up surgeries is to research the doctor and seek recommendations. Furthermore the cheapest is not always the best.
