Choosing to undergo plastic surgery is one of the most important decisions you can make in your life. If you are looking to get your dream body, have more confidence and higher self-esteem, you may be considering if plastic surgery could be the solution.
However, there are some risks involved in this procedure, and that’s why it is important to be wary. One of the factors that you should consider before undergoing plastic surgery in Singapore is the kind of surgeon that is going to work on you. Singapore has a lot of qualified plastic surgeons, but not all of them can yield the results you are looking for.
Singapore or Korea: Where to go for plastic surgery
With more and more Singaporeans opting to go under the knife and refurbish their looks, there has been a bit of speculation on where to get the best services: Singapore or Korea? While there is not a definite answer to this debate, there are a few considerations to keep mind when deciding which country offers the best cosmetic surgery.
When it comes to quality and effectiveness, both countries seem to be on par. However, some reports seem to suggest that Singaporeans prefer Korea to Singapore itself when it comes to plastic surgery (http://www.asiaone.com/health/bangkok-or-korea-where-singaporeans-go-plastic-surgery-and-why).
Although it is relatively challenging to gauge which of the two countries offers the best cosmetic surgery, there is one factor that stands out clearly; price.
And this is where Korea has a distinct advantage over Singapore. A lot of people who have had their plastic surgery in Korea confidently admit that their prices are more than 50% lower than what is charged in Singapore, without sacrificing the quality.
For instance, a nose job could cost you as much as $7,500 in Singapore while the same procedure is done for as little as $2,500 in Korea. Additionally, getting a boob job in Singapore is twice as much as expensive as it is in Korea. To have a facelift in Singapore you would need around $20,000 and only $1,500 in Korea.
Plastic surgery is a life-changing experience. It is, therefore, important that you find the right person to do it. Remember that this is a decision that can either build or destroy your life. A slight mistake could lead to tremendous effects.
Here are some tips to help you choose the right plastic surgeon in Singapore.
There are very many plastic surgeons in Singapore, but not all of them can provide the kind of quality services that will make you realise your dream body. It is imperative that you are careful when choosing a plastic surgeon to work with.
Ask your trusted friends and family
Friends and family are the most trusted sources of recommendations for the best plastic surgeon. These are people that care for you and would only recommend the best of surgeons. If you have friends or family members who have undergone plastic surgery before, talk to them and let them tell you about their experiences and who they think would be perfect for the job.
Check out the plastic surgeon’s record
An ideal surgeon has a high reputation, and that means their work and experiences with clients are publicly available. This presents an opportunity for you to check out the surgeon’s past work. You will be able to determine how many successful surgeries they have had and whether they are the kind you want. You can also check to see if the surgeon is licensed to practice medicine in Singapore and whether they have been involved in any medical malpractices.
Ask enough questions
When you go for a consultation, make sure that you ask all the right questions and get answered satisfactorily before agreeing to undergo surgery. If you feel like the surgeon has no idea of what you want, feel free to walk away.
Do not risk going into surgery when you still have unanswered questions in your head. Ask anything about the surgery and the surgeon even those questions that you think are unnecessary or insignificant. Do not let the plastic surgeon or anybody else rush you into the operation.
