How to Choose a Plastic Surgeon
Your choice of a plastic surgeon is as important as your decision to undergo any type of elective surgery. You should thoroughly investigate the experience and credentials of your prospective cosmetic surgeon before choosing any type of treatment. Some qualities to look for include:
- Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
- Specialized training in cosmetic surgery (beyond standard medical training)
- Educated and trained in the latest technologies and techniques
- Operates in accredited medical facilities
- Has a very high standard of ethics and practices
Your plastic surgeon should also be a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), and be skilled at helping you to make informed decisions concerning what type of plastic surgery would be best for your individual needs.
During your private consultation, your surgeon should be well-spoken, personable and able to explain every aspect of your prospective surgery to you in clear and detailed terms. It is very important to your surgical procedure and recovery that you are sure of your decision and comfortable with your surgeon and his staff. Be sure to ask a lot of questions and learn everything you can about your surgery, your cosmetic surgeon, his staff and their facility before making any decisions.
