PLASTIC SURGERY & MEDICAL TOURISM: TOP 3 RED FLAGS
TOP 3 RED FLAGS TO LOOK FOR:
1) Your plastic surgeon fails to discuss the postoperative instructions with you before the surgery.
Miami faces a significant issue. In such places, patients frequently meet the surgeon on the day of the procedure or not at all, and are often released from the clinic without any postoperative guidelines, follow-up care, or further consultation with the surgeon. This lack of appropriate care can lead to severe consequences for patients.
2) They are not equivalent of board certified.
Using a doctor without proper credentials may be less expenisve, but the cost of treating complications that may occur because of their lack of training will come at a high cost. Furthermore, putting oneself at risk of facing such complications is not justifiable.
3) No Contract.
Verbal agreements are insufficient; written contracts are necessary. If your doctor fails to provide you with a written contract prior to the surgery, they may not be obligated to fulfill their verbal promises.
