With all pro­ce­dures, there can be side ef­fects, and pre­cau­tion should be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion. The longer lead time you give your doc­tor, the bet­ter. If you are plan­ning a pro­ce­dure before go­ing to a ma­jor event, it is ad­vised that you con­sult your prac­ti­tioner at least six to 12 months prior to the event. The New Zealand So­ci­ety of Cos­metic Medicine has some sim­ple guide­lines to help you before you pro­ceed. You need to ask your­self: Am I con­fi­dent in my doc­tor? Do I feel con­fi­dent about hav­ing this pro­ce­dure done? Am I happy with the ar­range­ments that have been made for me to reach my de­sired re­sult? Have I had all my ques­tions an­swered? Do I un­der­stand any risks and po­ten­tial com­pli­ca­tions with this pro­ce­dure? Re­mem­ber, NZSCM (New Zealand So­ci­ety of Cos­metic Medicine) physi­cians are bound to take into ac­count the holis­tic na­ture of the client’s needs, in­clud­ing phys­i­cal, emo­tional, psy­cho­log­i­cal and en­vi­ron­men­tal.
