How To Choose A Cosmetic Surgeon
Choosing Your Cosmetic Surgeon
Choosing the right cosmetic surgeon is a big decision, and one that cannot be taking lightly. Before choosing someone, however, there are three main categories to research.
Medical Credentials and History
There are one-too-many horror stories of plastic surgery gone wrong. Don’t let that happen to you. When you’re looking for a surgeon be sure to check with their medical credentials. To ensure that you’re getting all the right information, check:
- Are they certified within your state?
- Do they belong with any professional association or group?
- Have there been any malpractice suits?
Your wants and needs will vary greatly from the person in the operating room next to you. Because of this, it’s critical that you are upfront about what you want done. Choosing a surgeon who specializes in your field of work will lead to the best results. Be sure to ask:
- How many times a week is this surgery done?
- Has the surgeon had an extra experience or education in this particular field?
Finally, your best source of information will be reviews and referrals. Past customers are often willing to spill all the details, from scheduling to post-op experiences. Getting information directly from someone who has had that experience will be your best insight.
- Ask friends who they would recommend.
- Check reviews online and peruse forums local to you.
Be sure to choose the right plastic surgeon for you by checking through all the important points. Credentials, experience and referrals will give you a good understanding of what you can expect.
