How to Choose Your Plastic Surgeon

The popularity of plastic surgery is soaring, with more and more doctors trying to meet the demand for a specialty that has become an integral part of mainstream medicine. Any licensed physician can call himself/herself a cosmetic surgeon, so it is important to find a properly trained and certified provider.

Your Responsibility
Before deciding on a surgeon, it is important that you think about your goals and your treatment. Do your research and prepare well before scheduling a consultation. Once it is time to meet with your potential surgeon, you want to feel confident asking about your doctor’s credentials, experience, outcomes, and safety record.

During the consultation, your plastic surgeon should answer all of your questions thoroughly and clearly. A great plastic surgeon will ask about your thoughts on the recommended treatment, while also offering alternatives without pressuring you to consider unneeded or additional procedures.

An experienced plastic surgeon should give you information about the procedure you want, explain the risks of surgery and possible outcomes, and welcome any questions about your procedure. Lastly, please remember that a professional plastic surgeon will leave the final decision to you.

As a prospective plastic surgery patient, educating yourself is one of the most important things you can do. It is your body, your safety, and your life. To help you prepare, we want to share the three essential questions you need to ask your surgeon before deciding to have surgery:

1) Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
2) What can I do to optimize my results?
3) What are the risks?

From a patient perspective, make sure you do your homework, find an expert surgeon with plenty of relevant experience, ask questions prior to surgery, and carefully discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure. If you take these precautions, you greatly increase your chances of being happy with the final outcome.

The Surgeon's Responsibility
Despite what you might think, you are not the only one responsible for making sure that you and your surgeon are a good fit. A great surgeon will not only use the consultation to answer your questions, but to help determine if you are a suitable candidate as well.

An experienced surgeon will consider where the patient is in his/her life, the timing of the surgery, the reason for considering surgery, and, perhaps most importantly, the patients overall expectations. While you might not know this, a successful surgery often comes down to the surgeon making an accurate evaluation of your candidacy.

At the CENTER, we realize the importance of developing strong and lasting relationships, which is why we have so many satisfied patients. We take the time to listen to our clients, and perform detailed consultations prior to surgery to ensure that the patient and the surgeon are on the same page.
