12 Jun Tips On How To Pick Your Plastic Surgeon
Having plastic surgery is a big decision and one you want to feel comfortable about making. Whether you are electing to have breast augmentation or abdominoplasty, you want to be sure you’re in skilled hands. Left in the hands of an expert plastic surgeon, you can have beautiful results that will have everyone turning their heads to look at you, (and asking for your doctor’s name). There are a number of plastic surgeons out there, so how do you select the right one for you? Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your surgeon.
Are They Board Certified?
This may be one of the most important things to look for when selecting a plastic surgeon. Being board certified means they are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and have taken extra steps to receive further training, including three to five years in general surgery and a minimum of two to three years in plastic surgery. This can ensure you’re getting a surgeon who is not only experienced but an expert at the procedure you want.
It’s always a good idea to read reviews from past patients. Reviews online can be a great source because people love to share their experiences, good and bad. You might also ask for references to patients who had the same surgery you’re considering. Plus, ask around and see if anyone knows of the plastic surgeon.
Look At Before and After Pictures
Every patient is different and will yield different results, however, looking at before and after pictures can give you an idea of the results you might expect. Pictures don’t lie and if you see exceptional results, you’re probably on the right track.
Trust Your Gut
You be the judge. We are all left with impressions after we meet someone, so think about the impression the surgeon made on you. How did you get along? Did he take the time to listen and answer your questions? Ultimately, you want to build a strong long-lasting relationship with your plastic surgeon so take into consideration how he makes you feel.
