Cosmetic and plastic surgery.  Cosmetic surgery is usually performed for aesthetic reasons whilst plastic surgery may be performed for medical reasons.  In both cases they are usually concerned with enhancing appearance or function.  Cosmetic surgery is an elective surgery.  All surgery is associated with a degree of risk.  Make sure you understand the risks and the benefits and that, for you, the benefits you will receive will outweigh the risks.  There may be alternative non-surgical treatments to help you achieve your goals that involve less risk and less expense.

Chose your surgeon with care.  Finding the cheapest surgeon may mean you can afford the surgery sooner, but may be worse than a false economy if the surgery should go wrong.   Always check that your surgeon has the proper credentials.  Look for evidence that they are a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons.  If you are looking to go abroad for surgery, make your your surgeon has appropriate qualifications that are recognised internationally.  Look for evidence of what your surgeon has achieved previously - make sure you like the results.  Compare different surgeons and seek independent advice before making a final selection.  Make sure your selected surgeon is a specialist in the type of surgery you need - if not ask for a referral.
