3 Tips on How to Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon
When you’re considering opting for a cosmetic procedure or plastic surgery to enhance the way you look, it’s important that you choose the right plastic surgeon for the job. Here are three tips on how to choose the right plastic surgeon for you and the procedure you want to get:
- Board-certified: When a plastic surgeon is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, they have successfully completed additional training in both general surgery and plastic surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeons must continue their education as the medical field advances and continually changes, as well as complete written and oral exams to achieve proper certification. Opting for a board-certified plastic surgeon will ensure you are choosing a surgeon that has the knowledge, skill and education necessary to deliver consistent and beautiful results.
- Experience: Experienced plastic surgeons generally perform a wide variety of cosmetic procedures on a regular basis. Patients should ask about the surgeon’s experience with the procedure that’s being considered. A plastic surgeon with significant experience can help you get optimal results.
- Hospital privileges: Before granting operating privileges, hospital review committees evaluate a surgeon’s training and competency for specific procedures. Wherever the surgery is performed, be sure that the surgeon has operating privileges in an accredited hospital for the procedure you are considering.
