Seek Qualified Professionals for Your Plastic Surgery Procedures

by

ATTENTION! Seek qualified professionals for your plastic surgery procedures. With burgeoning technology and increased availability to quality doctors, there has never been a better time for cosmetic procedure options. The cosmetic surgery industry is booming, with many procedures becoming plastic attainable and discreet. People in the United States spend billions of dollars a year on cosmetic procedures, from breast augmentation, face lifts and liposuction to butt implants, Botox injections and more.

As seen on the show Botched on E! Entertainment it is evident that people seeking cosmetic surgery will do anything or go to anybody to get it. These plastic surgeons see patients for implants that have leaked, foreign substances injected into the face acting as fillers with Botox, and all kinds of weird procedures, that all have one thing in common, they were not done by a board-certified plastic surgeon.

The importance of finding a qualified professional for your plastic surgery needs is crucial. The trust between you and your plastic surgeon is vital. Ask about your doctor’s experience, especially with the procedure you are considering. Ask about your doctor’s certifications. It is absolutely vital that your plastic surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and can speak to his or her training. If you aren’t confident with the doctor who will be altering your physical appearance, what’s the point of getting work done?

Questions to ask your plastic surgeon:

1. How often have you done this procedure?

You want to know if your doctor is skilled in the procedure you’re considering. This helps you feel confident that you’ve chosen the right surgeon.

2. How and where will my procedure be performed?

You want to know where your surgery will take place. Will it be in the doctor’s office, certified surgery center or a local hospital? Will your doctor have the best instruments and staff as well as access to emergency medical attention? You deserve the highest standard of safety as the patient and technical expertise. Along with your physician’s outstanding credentials and experience, you want to know your outpatient surgical facility is fully accredited.

In addition, ask your doctor who they will use for anesthesia. To further ensure the highest standard of safety for your procedure, find out if the people providing your anesthesia are properly credentialed and supervised by a board-certified anesthesiologist.

3. What will my procedure cost? 

The total price for any surgical procedure includes surgeon’s fees, anesthesia, operating room expenses, and any materials involved, such as breast implants. Each patient’s situation is unique, and the price for a procedure will vary depending on your specific needs and goals. While price should factor into your decision, you should never choose a cosmetic surgeon based on price alone. 

4. What can I expect from my recovery?

You need to understand the details of the recovery process to decide whether this is the right time for you to have a cosmetic procedure. Ask the cosmetic surgeon how much time you can expect to take away from your normal activities, including work, childcare, and exercise. Before you schedule surgery, you need to be sure you can handle being somewhat “out of commission” for a few days or weeks, depending on how complex a procedure you are considering.

When you come to your consultation, bring these questions with you, along with any others you might have. You can expect your plastic surgeon to answer your questions and provide you with the information you need to make a final decision about your plastic surgery.
