Check the local regulation: Knowing how the treatment is regulated in your chosen country is essential. It will help you identify reputable clinics registered with the governing body or national association. It will also tell you about your rights.
Prepare a list of questions for your doctor: prepare a list of questions to ensure you receive quality treatment. Common questions to ask - do they provide a translator? Do they have patients' testimonials? Is the clinic registered with the national association?
Trust your instincts: This personal element should not be underestimated since the treatment can be traumatic for many people. Mainly when undertaken in a foreign country and in unfamiliar surroundings. You should trust your instincts as much as the raw data. If a clinic feels wrong, then walk away.
Have a clear expectation of the results: understand the necessary procedure plan.
Choose a surgeon registered with an international governing body like the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. Or any other reputable international board.
Verify the surgeon's experience. Ask about the surgeon's education, additional fellowship training, and how often they performed the treatment.
