    In all honesty PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't go with a cosmetic surgeon, these are the ones you heard horror stories about. Whilst they are doctors they're not specialist ( like going to the GP to get heart transplant) a plastic surgeon was only slightly more in my research but worth it for piece of mind.

If u are keen, you could watch a bit and see if you like his manner, etc. The clinic was featured in one episode - the launch of some new equipment or something. Good luck.
    I've read mixed reviews on a surgeon review site so for the price they charge I'm not sure I'll go with them now.

    I've joined a plastic surgery forum, that could be a place to start with research.

    Plastic is perfect . They have under gone years of specialist training - like an obstetrician, heart surgeon, etc still doctors but specificity trained in an area. They are more aware of the impact augmentation has on the body and what nerves, muscles etc are located in the area

    I watched the 60 minute segment on The Cosmetic Institute, there were a handful of cases of heart attack during surgery, I think from memory it's because they are 'cosmetic surgeons' and legally can't give you a general anaesthetic, instead it's a sedated local, which then puts pressure on the heart. They tell you they prefer this method rather then tell you they aren't allowed to. They also said almost any GP can be a cosmetic surgeon.

    Plastic surgeons can give a general, and are trained specifically for augmentation.

    I don't know how much truth was in the story, they often show misinformation, but food for thought, do your research and I'm sure you'll be fine. I'd love to get it done one day!

    This story really was true. We have friends who are plastic surgeons and I work in operating theatres.

    The first issue is something called local anaesthetic toxicity which in severe cases will cause cardiac arrest and possibly death, basically the body is flooded with to much and can't cope.

    The other main issue is the patients are given sedation to make the relaxed/ a little sleepy, the problem is a light sedation can turn into unconscious not able to support your own airway and breath very very quickly.

    In a hospital you have your plastic surgeon as well as an anaesthetist. That means the surgeon can focus 100% on operating and the anaesthetist looks after your airway, breathing circulation (ie keeps you alive). In these clinics there isn't an anaesthetist at all.
