Save time in your search for the ideal surgeon. At Claris Clinic, we have the privilege of working with highly qualified and respected specialists in the field!

However, choosing the best plastic surgeon in Brussels (or in Belgium) for your procedure, be it blepharoplasty, facelift, breast augmentation or liposuction, is above all a very personal choice! That’s why we’ve put together a few tips to help you see things more clearly and, above all, ask yourself the right questions.

How to choose your surgeon

  1. First, check that the surgeon is certified by the Belgian Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (SBCPRE). The importance of this certification lies in the guarantee that he has received adequate training and has considerable experience in his field. Many so-called “aesthetic” surgeons are in fact neither certified nor qualified. At Claris Clinic, all our plastic surgeons are members of the SBCPRE.
  2. Ask for references and before-and-after photos of patients who have undergone a similar procedure to the one you have chosen. This gives you an idea of the quality of the surgeon’s work and what to expect after the operation. It also ensures that the surgeon has significant experience.
  3. Discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure with your surgeon and make sure you understand all the details. This ensures that expectations are realistic, that risks are understood and accepted, and that all questions have been asked.
  4. It’s important to understand that the advertised price for a cosmetic surgery procedure may not include all the costs associated with the operation. It is therefore essential to ask for details of the costs that will be included in the final price, such as the surgeon’s fees, the costs of anesthesia, hospitalization and equipment used.
  5. Make sure the surgeon listens to your needs and expectations, and takes the time to answer all your questions. This means the surgeon takes the time to understand your concerns, which is crucial to feeling confident and secure, and also helps avoid misunderstandings and dissatisfaction following the operation.
  6. Don’t hesitate to consult several surgeons so you can make a comparison and choose the one that’s best for you. This will give you the opportunity to compare the different options and the different levels of skill and experience of the surgeons. It will also make you feel more comfortable and confident in your final choice.

Some clinics may only mention an apparently attractive amount, but it’s important to take into account all the other costs involved, such as anesthesia, hospitalization and any implanted materials.
