New dawn, new day...

On my way to Birmingham for a day of consultations and 2 procedures.
I saw a patient yesterday who was interested in VASER to her thighs.
She had a previous consultation for VASER at a medispa in Kensington. She was seen by an "advisor" who gave her a brief description of the procedure and subsequently booked her in for an exorbitant amount of money.  Fortunately the patient cancelled her procedure prior the treatment day.  I cannot stress enough how important it is that you meet the Doctor/Surgeon who is going to perform the procedure before the treatment day.  It is also vital that you are councelled and informed on the procedure by a doctor who is experienced in the procedure.
To make an informed decision on a medical procedure you need to be told about the possible risks and complications.  There is no way an advisor is trained and experienced enough to do that.  Advisors are helpful for in arranging time slots and give you some tips on pre and post treatment advice, but it is imperative that you meet and speak to the doctor that will be treating you.  Furthermore, it is vital that the doctor is available after the treatment for possible concerns, complications and questions.
Make sure that the aftercare package is well described and that you are aware of what it entails and includes.  This is sometimes more important than the procedure itself.

Hope that helps.
