There may be several plastic surgeons in your area, but there is a foolproof way to select the best one for your cosmetic procedure needs. If you’ve decided to get plastic surgery, you need to select a surgeon who is not only recommended for that procedure in particular, but who will also fit your needs as a patient.
Below are three questions to ask yourself with any surgeon you’re considering:
Do they make you feel comfortable? With any doctor, whether they’re a general practitioner or a plastic surgeon, you need to make sure you feel comfortable around them. Always trust your gut and go with a surgeon who you feel a personal connection with, as long as they are also qualified.
Do they specialize in your desired procedure? Many plastic surgeons specialize in different areas of cosmetic surgery. From rhinoplasty to breast augmentation, you should always ask what your surgeon’s expertise is and look for one with a background in the procedure you’re looking to have performed.
Are they board certified? In order to ensure your plastic surgeon is qualified to perform the procedure you want, make sure they are board certified. A board certification shows that the doctor meets minimum standards of excellence in this field.
Whether you’re looking to get a face lift, nose job or laser skin resurfacing, make sure you go to the best surgeon for your needs, both medical and personal.
