Who are suitable candidates for body surgeries?
Details for what makes a suitable candidate can be different for each procedure. Before undergoing your procedure, you will have a consultation to discuss your health history and other personal factors.
Generally, the criteria to be a suitable candidate for surgery include:
- No allergy to anaesthesia or its components
- Not taking certain medications that can increase risks
- Willing to follow preparation and recovery instructions
- Does not have a bleeding disorder
- Does not smoke
- Is in good physical and mental health

What will influence my surgery costs?
Surgery costs can vary greatly depending on the procedure, but they can also vary from patient to patient, as the details of each procedure are tailored to individual requirements.
Some factors that can influence surgery costs include:
- Anaesthesia fees, including the type of anaesthesia
- Costs of materials used for the procedure
- Operating room costs
- Surgeon’s fees
- Post-procedure appointments
What can I expect for recovery?
Recovery after surgery must be managed according to your personalised instructions. Every patient is different and can have differing guidelines to support their body after surgery.
Initially, patients can expect postoperative discomfort, swelling, and bruising and may require pain management with medication. Dressings, drains, and compression garments may be involved, and physical activity will be restricted to allow for sufficient healing time. Full healing can take weeks to months, and the visibility of full results will require patience. Follow-up appointments are essential for monitoring the healing progress.
What are the risks and complications of body surgeries?
All surgeries can be associated with certain risks and complications. During a consultation, you will be thoroughly informed of the risks associated with your specific procedure, as well as how to minimise and prevent these risks and complications.

- Poor wound healing
