5 Tips for Finding the Best Plastic Surgeon

We will be in touch

Any licensed physician166421094 is legally allowed to perform cosmetic surgery, whether he or she is an ENT or even an OB/GYN. Just because a physician can perform procedures doesn’t mean you should choose a plastic surgeon without doing some research first. Finding the best plastic surgeon is fairly simple when you keep a few things in mind.

  1. Know What Board Certification Means

    Becoming a board certified plastic surgeon is a rigorous-but-rewarding process. The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is one of the 24 specialty boards recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), and the ABPS is the only ABMS board that is certified to cover head-to-toe, full body plastic surgery.

  2. Find One with Hospital Privileges

    A plastic surgeon who has been given specific hospital privileges often means that he or she has been approved by a hospital board committee to perform in their accredited facilities.

  3. Post-Surgery Attention

    The best plastic surgeons are those who provide post-operative instructions. Recovery can be a sensitive time, and finding a surgeon who is attentive to the healing process and responds to recovery questions is important.

  4. Rapport and Relationships

    Often termed “bedside manner,” good rapport between patients and their plastic surgeons is invaluable. Feeling comfortable and trusting your doctor doesn’t happen overnight, and professional rapport can facilitate your feeling confident.

  5. Thorough Consultation

    Asking questions and voicing concerns during a thorough consultation to discuss medical history and expectations, is the easiest way to understand a procedure and know what to expect from a surgeon.

    Plastic surgeons are not one-size-fits-all, which is why finding the best one for your needs is so important. Don’t settle, and keep these five tips in mind as you’re searching.
