How to Choose a Plastic Surgeon That’s Right For You

Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on August 1, 2014

6Plastic surgery is a major industry down here in image-conscious South Florida.  There are untold numbers of plastic surgeons offering a wide array of services and treatments.  It’s important to be able to sift through all of these potential options to find the plastic surgeon that best suits your needs.  Here are some tips to take heed of as you research the plastic surgeons available to you.

Check Credentials

Surgeons, regardless of their specialty, require extensive education and training.  Even after they start their practices, it’s best to see if they’ve been admitted to any professional organizations or supervisory boards.  These credentials show that the surgeons have been reviewed and approved by their peers and, by definition, are quality choices for prospective patients.

Seek Testimonials from Previous Patients 

You can also go in the opposite direction and seek out testimonials directly from the people affected most by plastic surgeons: their former patients.  The internet is full of resources that can be used to check up on what customers and patients thought of their surgeons, from how effective and safe their procedures were to their bedside manner.

Speak to the Plastic Surgeon to See if They’re a Good Fit For You

And when all else fails, why not meet with the plastic surgeon yourself and make your own judgments?  A consultation can tell you a lot about what you’re getting into.  Does the surgeon sound knowledgeable?  Does the office appear well-organized?  Some things are detectable with your own two eyes.

Pay Attention to the Services Offered

Not all plastic surgeons are alike.  Many have a specific area of plastic surgery in which they excel.  Having your breasts enlarged and getting Botox facial enhancements require different skill sets.  Usually, the surgeon has one or two specialties.  One surgeon may specialize in breast augmentation or reduction operations, while another is more geared towards facial rejuvenation and injectables. A well trained and experienced board certified plastic surgeon, however, should be competent in all areas of aesthetic surgery.
