10 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR DOCTOR

Before putting your idea into action, it is important to find a qualified practitioner with whom you can build a relationship based on trust. This is why, to help you search for and choose an aesthetic physician and/or surgeon, we have developed a (non-exhaustive) list of questions for you.

1. What are his/her qualifications?

The success of any aesthetic procedure is dependent on the practitioner’s qualifications. So don’t hesitate to do your own online research and then ask your prospective practitioner about his/her training and work experience during your appointment.

2. Will the aesthetic procedure you are considering achieve your desired result?

Thanks to his/her experience and knowledge, an aesthetic physician is in a position to advise you on the technique best suited to you, as concerns the desired result and in view of your physical person (skin type, morphology, etc.).

3. How many times has he/she performed the aesthetic procedure?

The more experienced the doctor, the better your chances of success.

4. Can he/she show you any before & after pictures?

Don’t hesitate to ask your doctor for before and after pictures of the outcome of the aesthetic procedure performed on other patients, to give you an idea of the end result. Additionally, some doctors have augmented reality devices they can use to illustrate the end result that certain aesthetic procedures would have on you, by means of photos or videos.

5. How will the aesthetic procedure unfold?

To have all the information you need to make your decision, don’t hesitate to ask the doctor to explain the procedure in detail.

6. What side effects does the aesthetic procedure have?

Most aesthetic medical procedures come with side effects like redness, sensations of heat, bruising, swelling, etc.
Aesthetic surgical procedures are more invasive and more involved than those in aesthetic medicine, and so can have more serious side effects, sometimes requiring some time before the patient can be seen in public again.
As a result, it is very important to consider all of these various side effects before making your decision.

7. What can be done to reduce side effects and prevent adverse reactions?

Your doctor should be able to give you answers and concrete solutions so that you can make a fully informed assessment of your aesthetic procedure, without a shadow of a doubt. Remember that CEBELIA’s product was specially designed in partnership with aesthetic physicians and surgeons to accompany aesthetic procedures, reduce side effects and prolong the effects of procedures back at home.

8. How long will the results of the aesthetic procedure last?

Some aesthetic procedures have permanent results, like face lifts, mammoplasty, etc., while others have a limited effect over time and will need to be repeated as maintenance; these include injections (every 6 to 9 months), skin peels, etc.
Look into the specific case of your aesthetic procedure in particular.

9. How much does the aesthetic procedure cost, and how many sessions are needed?

For budgeting purposes, it is important to look up the price of the aesthetic procedure and determine whether or not multiple sessions will be necessary.

10. What is free, informed consent?

Free, informed consent is a document you will need to sign, giving your doctor permission to perform the aesthetic procedure on you. It also means that your doctor has fully informed you about the course of the procedure and that you are aware of the possible side effects.
