01 How to Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon

How to Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon

Given the wealth of options available, choosing a plastic surgeon can seem daunting. It’s important to remember that you’re in control throughout the process. You can meet with multiple surgeons and learn more about their style, practice, and see if they fit your aesthetic goals. By choosing a surgeon who meets your needs, you can feel comfortable and confident with your elected surgical procedure.

What to Look for When Selecting a Plastic Surgeon

Whether you’re getting a mommy makeoverfacelift, or rhinoplasty, finding the right plastic surgeon with extensive experience, proof of past results, and a dedication to your overall well-being is crucial. Here are some things to look for as you choose a plastic surgeon.

They Are Board-Certified

It’s important to ensure your plastic surgeon has board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery to ensure you receive the highest standard of medical care. A board-certified surgeon must have at least six years of surgical training and spend two or three of those years focusing on plastic surgery in order to demonstrate extensive experience. Additionally, they must pass multiple rigorous exams and prove their practice is safe and ethical.

They Have Before and After Photos

Before booking your consultation, see if the surgeon offers Before and After photos of patients who completed similar procedures. These photos can help you see results achieved for other patients, and gauge how you may look after surgery.

During your consultation, your surgeon should provide additional pictures as well as take the time to discuss what you like about each photo and how they can help you achieve your ideal result.

If you research multiple surgeons, you will want to compare their Before and After photos.

They Ask You Questions Throughout Your Consultation

Before starting the plastic surgery process, your doctor should ask many questions to thoroughly understand your medical history and any concerns that may affect the success of the procedure.

Another essential question your surgeon should ask is about your goals for this elected surgery. By understanding what specific outcome you wish to achieve, your plastic surgeon can offer expert advice and create a personalized surgical treatment plan for improved results.

They Help You Feel Comfortable From Start to Finish

Receiving plastic surgery should feel like a partnership between you and your surgeon. You should feel safe and assured that they can care for you if something unexpected arises before, during, or after surgery.
