Before making a decision, getting a second medical opinion can help clear up any doubts.
Surveys show that over a third of patients seek second opinions. On average, these patients obtain information about the planned procedure from two other doctors before visiting the plastic and aesthetic surgeon. The risk awareness and the increasing information level of the patients is a very positive development, which we would like to support by providing understandable information on our website.
