Choose a member of the Hellenic Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (HeSPRAS) when looking for a surgeon in Greece (http://www.hespras.gr/elxis/index.php?mylang=english). The Plastic Surgeon is better to be a fellow of the prestigious EBOPRAS (European Board of Plastic Reconstuctive and Aesthetic Surgery) (www.ebopras.org). This guarantees that the doctor has been well trained in Plastic Surgery. Check out the credentials and the CV of the Surgeon who will treat you. It is vitally important for patients to be comfortable with their doctor, particularly when considering Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
To help ensure optimal results and to limit risks and complications:
- Do Your Homework: Research the procedure, the benefits, and the risks.
- Have Realistic Expectations and be informed in order to know what to expect.
