If you have decided to have some work done, perhaps some lipo under your chin for example, then before you start searching for a ‘facial plastic surgeon near me’ you need to first have a good understanding of what you are looking for. Although procedures and materials used are generally the same no matter which plastic surgeon you use, there is a huge number of factors which we can look to that differentiate the quality and the care which a plastic surgeon will give you.
This then is what you should be looking for in a plastic surgeon.
The process here is to first understand what to look for, then whittle down your searches and finally head to 2 or 3 surgeons to speak with them around what you are looking to have done. In sticking to this process you can make sure that you make the best choice.
It is never 100% possible to know exactly what your personal plastic surgery experience is going to look like but reading testimonials of others who have had work done is always a very good indication of what the surgeon is capable of. Bear in mind that not all plastics surgery experiences are guaranteed to work, sometimes the body plays a key role in this so don’t be discouraged if you see some negative experiences, most plastics surgeons have one or two.
You should be focussing on the care, professionalism and the communication which was given to each patient, as well as thinking about the cleanliness of the clinic.
Whilst many plastic surgeons will tell you that they can turn their hand to anything within plastics, some will specialize in certain areas and these are the men and women who you should be on the lookout for. If you are having a tummy tuck done for example then find yourself a surgeon who specializes in that as this way you can rely on a more professional and well thought out procedure.
The cost of the procedure is something which varies wildly and you could be paying $10,000 for a procedure which in another setting costs $25,000. The factors which dictate price are generally the location of the clinic, the experience which the surgeon has, the type of patients which the surgeon receives and generally how valuable the surgeon believes that they are. You want to be looking at somewhere in the mid-range here, too cheap and you run the risk of poor quality clinics and materials, perhaps even a newbie, too expensive and you are paying for just the name of the surgeon and nothing more.
When you sit down in a consultation with the surgeons be sure to keep an eye out for how clear they are in their instructions and their ideas as to what they can do, how cared for you feel and whether or not they instill confidence in you that they are going to have your best interests at heart.
