How Would I Choose a Plastic Surgeon?

In the year 2017 alone, over 17.5 million plastic surgeries were performed worldwide. While the right cosmetic surgeon can remove excess fat from your mid-section or sculpt your nose to your liking, the wrong surgeon will leave you feeling cheated out of your time, your money and your ideal “you.”

When searching for a plastic surgeon, there are many things to keep in mind. Finding a surgeon who is board certified is crucial to getting your desired results. Keep in mind that there is no government requirement for a surgeon to be properly trained in the procedures that they offer. Many doctors who perform general surgeries begin doing cosmetic surgeries purely for profit.  So make sure that your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Another thing to keep in mind when looking for a surgeon is word of mouth recommendations. If a trustworthy friend, family member or coworker talks highly of a particular surgeon, take their advice to heart. They are likely to give you a good recommendation because they want you to be pleased with the results just as much as you do.

It is also important to take the online reputation of the plastic surgeon into account. Make sure to read customer reviews before committing to going under the knife. If most of the reviews are good, you should move forward with scheduling a consultation. If most of the reviews are bad, it’s best to look for someone else.

Lastly, take the time to look at before and after photos of previous patients. There is no better way to get an idea of a surgeon’s skill level than through viewing the results of their past surgeries. Make sure that they have a lot of photos of the specific procedure that you hope to have done to ensure that you are making the right choice.

            Now that you have more information about how to pick the right plastic surgeon, hopefully, you will feel more confident in your decision. Plastic surgery is serious business and shouldn’t be rushed into. So, take your time. We’ll be here when you’re ready for us to sculpt your ideal “you.”
