When looking at any type of surgery, you should always be prepared for problems. This is even more true with plastic surgery, as you also have the chance of a botched job. This isn't meant to scare you off, just as a reminder to have the number of a back-up surgeon on hand.
Surgery is very expensive and it makes doctors a lot of money, which is why you need to be extremely careful about where your money is going. Check your doctor's background and read some reviews. Do not get lured into using a surgeon just because they have a brochure that makes things look perfect.
Ask about different options for the anesthesia. For major interventions, a general anesthesia is best, but you should know about the risks involved. You have the right to ask for a general or a local anesthesia but do more research so you can make an educated decision. Ask your surgeon to have a qualified nurse assists him or her for the anesthesia if necessary.
