Choosing the Right Plastic SurgeonRecently we have been hearing about the fake doctor who was using a concoction of super glue, tire sealant, cement and mineral oil to plump up patients’ curves. Although this is an extreme case of medical malpractice, too many people are signing up to have cosmetic work done by under qualified doctors.

It is very important to seek out cosmetic procedure from licensed plastic surgeons. During a consultation with a plastic surgeon is a great time to ask him questions to get a better feel for his experience and qualifications.

Doctors who have the proper credentials and experience will not mind answering any questions you might have about your procedure. Here are some guidelines to consider when consulting with cosmetic surgeons:

  • Is the doctor’s experience relevant to you? Ask to see before and after pictures to get a better idea of his work on patients that have similar traits to you, such as ethnicity, age facial structure, etc.
  • Does the doctor listen to you? It is important to find a doctor who listens to your goals and needs.
  • Where did the doctor go to school and how much experience does he have? This will give you better insight into his credentials (or lack of credentials).
  • What is the doctor’s philosophy? Get a good sense of the doctor’s overall view on cosmetic surgery to make sure his ideals are cohesive with your philosophy.

Try to select a plastic surgeon who is not just competent and experienced, but understands your individual needs and goals! Here is more detailed information about choosing a cosmetic surgeon.
