  • Are there any other procedures you think I should consider that would better fit my goals?
  • Where will my procedure be performed?
  • Do you have hospital privileges? (If there is a complication, your cosmetic surgeon should have hospital privileges so he or she can continue to provide your care if you are admitted to the hospital).
