Making Decision regarding procedure: I finally had abdominoplasty and breast reduction after contemplating it for over 10 years. I investigated many options in India and abroad. Researching for the most suitable doctor and suitable hospital was a bit challenging. Had to think of many things like doctor’s experience in the field, procedure results, availability, finance, type of pre and post care available, hospital where the doctor works where the procedure can be carried out, hospital environment, support, hygiene, equipment used, after care, in patient care given, etc. I visited 2 cities in India for this and decided to finally have it done in Mumbai. Coming from abroad meant I had to make a few expensive visits to India to decide where and who I will be comfortable with for the procedure.
This is my second visit with CCRS and I’m already planning my third.
