Chin Reduction Surgery Surgeons

Find Chin Reduction Clinics in London & UK »

If you have decided that you wish to undergo chin reduction surgery one of the first steps that you will need to take towards getting the surgery that you want is finding a qualified surgeon to perform the operation. This may seem like a lot of effort, when you can pick up the phone book or go online and find a host of people offering the surgery. However, it is a measure that you should take to ensure that you are safe before, during, and after the procedure.

Finding a Surgeon in Your Area

Chin  reduction  surgery is a complicated procedure and as such requires a doctor with experience in performing the operation. Not all cosmetic surgeons perform chin reduction surgery, and you may be better off if you search for maxillofacial surgeons to perform your operation.

One way of finding a surgeon to perform your chin reduction surgery is to speak to your GP. They will be able to give you more information on where to find a surgeon in your local area. They may also help you by giving you information about the procedure so that you can prepare yourself for meeting with the surgeon.

Another place to look for a surgeon, who performs chin reduction surgery in your area, is to search the internet. The internet can provide you with a range of information about local clinics and surgeons. However, you should always be aware that people can put misleading information on the internet and thus should regard what you see with a critical eye. When you have found a number of local surgeons to perform your chin reduction surgery, you should set about ensuring that they are qualified.

How to Check that a Surgeon is Qualified

The best place to look when searching for qualified surgeons in your local area is the General Medical Council. All surgeons have to be registered with the General Medical Council to perform surgery. Although the General Medical Council does not give any indication of the reputation or the experience of the surgeon, it does allow you to check that surgeons are qualified to operate.

Before you can check the List of Registered Medical Practitioners through the General Medical Council, you will need the name and reference number of the surgeon. You will then find information about their status.

How to Check that a Surgeon has a Good Reputation

Once you have found a qualified surgeon, you should ensure that they have a good reputation. This is important as although the General Medical Council has standards that surgeons have to meet, patient experiences may differ. You can do an online search to see if there are any reviews or complaints about your surgeon online. Many people discuss surgeons and their experiences of surgery on online forums and these can be extremely helpful in gathering information. You should also ask if you could see patient testimonies when you speak to the surgeon. Although these are likely to be a sample of their best reviews, they can be helpful in seeing what some patients think of their surgery.

You should also make sure that your surgeon has a lot of experience in performing chin reduction surgery. You can do this by asking the surgeon how often they perform the operation and for how long they have been practicing it. You could also gather information by talking to other staff at the clinic, for example the nurses or the receptionists. Although these people may not have the answers that you want, it is likely that you will gain valuable information from them and their reactions to your questions.
