Few decisions are more important than choosing a cosmetic surgeon. A good plastic surgeon will dramatically improve your looks while also making sure you receive expert medical care. This requires a unique skill set, combining an artistic sensibility with scientific aptitude. Here are some tips for finding the cosmetic surgeon who is right for you:
Good doctors always welcome questions from patients, so never be afraid to ask! Allowing an inexperienced or unqualified doctor to operate on you could leave you with permanent physical damage. Your appearance and health are at stake, so do your homework.
Check the facility
Look for a well-trained staff and a certified surgical center that is owned and operated by a licensed physician. Remember, no discount is worth putting your looks and your safety at risk.
Ensure the surgeon is board-certified
You should only trust your body, face and health to a board-certified plastic surgeon. This means that he or she graduated from an accredited medical school, passed rigorous exams and completed three years of general surgery, three years of plastic surgery residency and two years of professional practice. There are no short cuts to becoming certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, which means your doctor is less likely to take short cuts when it comes to your health.
