08 Oct How to Choose a Cosmetic Surgeon
Plastic surgery is a big decision. That’s why at John Park MD Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, every patient is given the VIP treatment. You’re entrusting yourself to an expert, and when you first begin researching your plastic surgery journey, it can feel a little overwhelming. How can you tell who the best cosmetic surgeon is in Newport Beach? What do you look for? What are the signs that you’ve found the right cosmetic surgeon for you?
Picking the Right Surgeon
Consider this your must-have checklist as you start this exciting, life-changing journey:
- What are the surgeon’s qualifications? Of course, your plastic surgeon needs to be board-certified, but you also want to take a look at where they attended medical school, their residencies, and their continuing medical education. How long they’ve been practicing and how many procedures they’ve performed is also an indicator of their skill and expertise.
- How are the reviews? Take a look at both the testimonials on the plastic surgeon’s website as well as reviews from non-biased, third-party sites. It’s the modern equivalent to word of mouth and remains one of the best ways to gauge the skill of a surgeon.
- Pore over the before-and-after photos. Any great surgeon will have an impressive gallery of before-and-after photos. There are often many more in the office, so consider online galleries a sneak peek. Take a look at the photos of the surgery (or surgeries) you’re interested in, and you’ll get a preview of the kind of results you can expect.
- Come prepared to your complimentary consultation. Consultations should be complimentary, and this is your chance to not only learn more about the surgeon and procedure, but to see if you “click.” It’s usually a good idea to write down your questions before the consultation so nothing is forgotten. This consultation is also where you’ll get a gut reaction, and it’s important to trust your instincts. The appointment should both put you at ease and get you even more excited about the surgery.
