For many men and women who have been considering cosmetic surgery for many years, to correct or enhance a physical feature, their first step will be to research their cosmetic surgeon. Recommendations from friends and family are great and your local GP can be a real help, but many people use the internet which is a highly valuable resource.
Once you’ve chosen potential plastic surgeons then you should arrange a consultation. You have to be able to establish a solid relationship with your cosmetic surgeon based on trust and good communication and that might not happen with the first person you see. That is why it is worth having a couple of consultations – any more than two or three will probably just leave you feeling confused and unsure.
What should I expect from my consultation?
A reputable and experienced cosmetic surgeon such as Cambridge plastic surgeon Mr Tariq Ahmad will offer you a lengthy, unhurried consultation, during which there is no pressure or obligation to have a procedure.
The ethical guidelines that a cosmetic surgeon such as Mr Tariq Ahmad will follow dictate that he will never suggest a cosmetic procedure to you. The first step is for him to listen to your concerns about what has been bothering you and discuss in depth what you’d like to alter about your appearance.
Mr Tariq Ahmad will take a full medical history to ensure that you are fit and well for surgery. Then, when you’re at ease, he will perform a thorough physical examination, depending on what part of the face or body you wish to alter.

Breast implants come in a variety of different sizes and shapes and Mr Ahmad has to plan which size and shape will be necessary to fulfil your expectations.
What I will learn in a cosmetic surgery consultation?
