Choosing the Right Plastic Surgeon

If you are considering plastic surgery, researching the background and credentials of the plastic surgeons in your area should be your first step. An unqualified plastic surgeon will not only provide you with less satisfying results – they can also put your safety at risk. Make sure you select a surgeon who has the training, education, and hands-on experience that you need to obtain the best outcome possible from your chosen procedure.

During your initial consultation with a plastic surgeon, consider asking questions like:

  • Are you board certified?
  • Are you a member of any professional plastic surgery organizations?
  • How often do you perform the procedure I am interested in?
  • Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
  • What are the risks and complications asssociated with my procedure?

The right plastic surgeon will provide you with clear, direct answers that make you feel confident enough to make an informed decision about plastic surgery. He should also listen carefully to your personal cosmetic goals, taking your feedback and desires into account. You should feel comfortable with the surgeon, staff, and the office: it isn’t worth trusting such a serious decision to anyone you feel nervous about.
