6 Questions to Ask Yourself When Choosing a Plastic Surgeon

If you are deciding to undergo plastic surgery, there are many things to take into consideration. One of the most important is finding the right cosmetic surgeon to work with. Here are 6 questions you must ask yourself before deciding on a plastic surgeon. 

If you are deciding on having plastic surgery, the most important decision you can make is choosing a surgeon who has the right training, skills, and experience, to carry out the procedure in a safe manner. 

Neglecting to make a carefully evaluated and well-researched decision about any aspect of your plastic surgery can have undesirable consequences, such as: 

  • Unsatisfactory results
  • Surgical complications
  • Higher costs 

No matter what cosmetic surgery you’re opting for, it’s important that you have a plastic surgeon whom you can trust and who meets all your specific needs.

6 Questions to Ask Yourself When Selecting a Plastic Surgeon 

After much research, you have come to the decision that you would like to have plastic surgery. This is an exciting, yet huge, decision, and so you must find a plastic surgeon who can help you achieve the best and safest possible results. 

When selecting a cosmetic surgeon, here are 6 questions you must ask yourself: 

1. What particular training and certifications does the doctor have? Any practicing physician may call themselves a cosmetic surgeon, or provide such services, but only board-certified plastic surgeons have received the years of specialized training and achieved the competence required to give you the safest and best results.


2. What is the surgeon’s particular experience with the surgery you want? Ask the surgeon how many times he/she has performed the particular procedure and if they have received specialized training for it. Remember, not all surgeons are experts in every area. An expert in rhinoplasty may not necessarily be the best surgeon for your breast augmentation procedure. 

3. Which hospital is the procedure performed at? Ask yourself if this hospital is accredited and if you are comfortable being treated there.


4. Does the doctor make you feel comfortable? Do you feel like you can trust your plastic surgeon and have they enquired about your reasons for having the procedure? A good plastic surgeon will always explain your alternatives and will never pressure you into making a quick decision. 

5. Is your doctor honest? Does your doctor answer all of your questions fully and clearly? A good surgeon will be frank about issues such as potential risks, recovery times, and having realistic expectations of your surgical outcome. 

6. Can you talk to previous patients? One of the best ways to ensure that you’ve found the right plastic surgeon is by talking to other patients. If they’ve had the same, or similar procedure, themselves, by the same doctor, they can be an excellent referral source.
