What to look for in the best plastic surgeon

Have you made the decision to have plastic surgery?    If yes, and you want to get great results, it’s important to find the best plastic surgeon to do the job.  But what should you look for in a plastic surgeon.

3 tips for finding the best plastic surgeon

  1. Choose a board certified plastic surgeon

A surgeon that is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is uniquely qualified to perform cosmetic surgery.  Certification by the ABPS confirms that the surgeon has the required education and credentials, and is therefore capable of performing surgery safely and effectively.

  • Review their portfolio

Reviewing the plastic surgeon’s portfolio can help you assess their skill and expertise.  The portfolio should contain ‘before and after’ photos of previous patients that have undergone the same procedure you would like to have done.  It’s important to look at patients that are similar in age, size, etc. so that you can determine the surgeon’s ability to provide the aesthetic outcome you desire. 

  • Choose a surgeon you trust

It’s important to choose a plastic surgeon you trust and feel comfortable with.  The surgeon should be willing to listen to your concerns, offer advice, and answer any questions you may have about the procedure.  They should also inform you of possible risks and complications, and recommend options to help you achieve the results you desire.   If the surgeon is not willing to discuss these issues with you, it may be best to consult with another surgeon.
