Why a local cosmetic surgeon is a good idea rather than going overseas?

If you go overseas, you will definitely have cosmetic surgery by an unknown surgeon, probably someone that does not speak exactly the same language as yourself and someone who only has a short-term relationship with you. You also have very little knowledge of the training of not only the cosmetic surgeon like Dr Hodgkinson but also the anaesthetist and their nursing staff; so you really could be a in a situation whereby you might be “all at sea”.

It is much better to have a local cosmetic surgeon who will not rush you into surgery and you can spend time getting to know them, their staff and you can be worked up appropriately to have the surgery.  The other thing is that we cannot predict 100% how the surgery is going to go and surgery requires follow-up.  If you need follow up and have a problem with the cosmetic surgery, your local cosmetic surgeon will take care of this but if you have to be committed to go back overseas, firstly, the savings that you thought you were going to have will be diminished and secondly, if you decide not to go overseas, the local cosmetic surgeons are not going to be too happy to see you, nor will they have the appropriate information to be able to help you.  Also, if you go overseas, you can possibly pick up a bacterial infection, that we just do not know about in your own country, and this can make treatment very difficult and expensive.
