When you’ve made the decision to undergo plastic surgery, you want to ensure you find the best professional possible. But in an industry where there are so many credentials and certifications, how can you separate subpar plastic surgeons from the real deal? And what are some of the surefire signs that you’ve found a plastic surgeon who will work hard to ensure you achieve your desired results?
When it comes to the type of credentials you should look for in a plastic surgeon, here’s what you need to know:
- Carefully consider the credentials that your plastic surgeon is displaying. You want to look for a plastic surgeon who is board certified in plastic surgery by the American Board of Specialists. A qualified board-certified plastic surgeon should also be a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
- Find a plastic surgeon who has privileges to perform the procedures he would do in his office at accredited hospitals. This means that a plastic surgeon has experience and has been vetted by the hospital.
- Look for a professional who has years, if not decades, of experience. This ensures you’re working with a seasoned plastic surgeon who’s worked with many patients. These surgeons should have ample before & after photos and case studies.
- Find a plastic surgeon who makes you feel comfortable. This is the person who is going to help you achieve your desired results – and that means you should feel safe and confident in his or her hands. The consultation should be thorough and put you at ease with your decision.
