There are many questions you need to prepare if you are in the state of being 100% certain to try plastic surgery. Things you really need to consider the most are the cost of the surgery if you can afford it or not, the particular type of plastic surgery that is best for you to undergo with, and the surgeon who will be performing your surgery.

It is highly significant for a surgeon to do his job well in order for you to be satisfied with the results. Always keep in mind that not all surgeons are capable and eligible to perform sensitive surgeries so it is still better to do proper research about the best surgeons you need to trust with.
So here are the common problems that are normally mistaken to do by most patients when choosing the right surgeon.
A first world problem perhaps?
If you are considering to go through a specific type of plastic surgery, you should always ensure that the plastic surgeon you choose is board certified. Plastic surgeons who are board certified are the ones who are legit and qualified to perform surgical procedures.
These surgeons have gone through extensive training and earned certifications, they should have tons’ experiences in plastic surgery in the past. With their experiences, these surgeons have lower complication rates compared to any other doctors “guarantees” you that it’s a low complication surgery and stuff.
However, it is not that hard to look for a board certified plastic surgeon. You can simply know if they are qualified by doing some research on their previous performances and checking out reviews in the internet. Getting the board-certified plastic surgeon will give you a you safer and more successful outcomes.
So just what is it that can help me in my quest of finding that “right” surgeon?
Ask and ask and ask. If you ask a generic question to Surgeon A,B and C. the 3 of them will give you the same answer somehow. But, if you ask these surgeons a more in depth question such as how many cases of this procedure have he or she done before, there, you will have 3 different answers. It will help you in narrowing down which surgeon you find comfortable with in terms of doing that procedure for you.
The common mistakes that patients do when considering plastic surgery often happens during consultation. They failed to ask in depth or essential questions about the procedure they are doing. This may actually result in a failed outcome of the surgery.
- Don’t be afraid to ask your surgeons the questions you really want to know regarding the procedure. You can have a bucket list of questions before the consultation. It is important that you need to be true to your surgeon for you to be able to get the information you deeply want to know. To help you decide what questions are necessary to be put in your list, here are the questions you might consider to ask with your surgeon on your consultation day:
- When did you start to perform this procedure?
- How many patients or clients have you performed this kind of surgery?
- How many successful results have you performed?
- Which technique or method of surgery that is best suit for me and why? And, how is it going to work?
- How many times have you performed this procedure?
- Have you ever encountered any complications when you were doing this surgery
- Who is your assistant for this procedure?
So these are just recommended questions you may ask to your surgeon. But if you have other questions, feel free to ask them right away to give you assurance and confidence about your surgery.
Cost should not be your main priority. If it is, then be prepared to take risk.
It is given that any surgical procedures to be performed are very costly and expensive. You need to exert some investment for the procedure. However, avoid dealing with bargain prices. Dealing with surgeries that offer cheap prices doesn’t mean it is good to try. Many patients choose those that are affordable in order to save money but usually these are the ones that can put you at risk. You get what you paid for, period.
you encounter a surgeon who is offering a procedure that is low in price, that “might” be a sign that you are actually dealing with a surgeon with incompetent skills and experiences, or perhaps they may be using tools and equipment that are outdated which explain the low price.
Alright folks, all the best on your quest in finding the right surgeon for your procedure.
