One of the most important decisions you will need to make when considering plastic surgery is who you will trust to perform your procedure. Your plastic surgeon is responsible for your comfort, safety, and final results, making it a good idea to take your time when choosing a plastic surgeon.
What to Look for in a Plastic Surgeon
Your plastic surgeon should board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS.) Board-certification is only given to surgeons who have undergone additional schooling and residencies focusing on plastic surgery and also met the high standards of the ABPS.
Your safety should be a top priority for your plastic surgeon. Make sure your plastic surgeon offers technologically advanced options and performs all of his procedures in a local hospital or an accredited surgical center.
Lastly, make sure your plastic surgeon respects his patients’ desires and is capable of producing good results. The best way to start the process is to ask your friends about their experiences with those surgeons you are considering. An initial consultation is the best way to determine if you are choosing the right plastic surgeon for you, but word of mouth is not far behind
