4 Questions to Ask Your Doctor before Committing to Plastic Surgery

Whatever type of cosmetic surgery you are considering, before you make a commitment, it’s essential that you have a consultation with the surgeon. Don’t be afraid to ask plenty of questions. A professional surgeon will answer them all and put you at ease. If you are not sure what exactly to ask during your consultation, here are four questions to get you started.

Initial Consultation

Are You Board Certified?

This is an absolute must. This is the testament that you surgeon has attained a certain level of training and expertise in cosmetic surgery. It indicates that he/she has completed a specialist training in cosmetic surgery in addition to completing a surgical residency in a medical field. Furthermore, the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery only certifies cosmetic surgeons who practice in approved surgical facilities.

How Many Times Have You Performed The Type of Procedure I Wish To Have?

Often, cosmetic surgeons specialize in certain types of procedure, such as breast augmentation, or facial cosmetic surgery. There are obvious benefits in choosing a surgeon who specializes in the procedure you wish to have done as he/she will be more skilled in this technique.

What Will The Recovery Be Like?

You need to know how much time you will have to spend away from your normal day-to-day activities, such as work, immediately after the procedure. This way you can prepare to take some time out before you schedule your surgery.

What Will Be The Cost of The Procedure?

Cosmetic surgery, whichever type you have chosen on, is elective, so you will be responsible for the full payment of the procedure and possibly separate fees for anesthesia . You situation will be unique so the cost of the surgery will depend on the procedure that is designed specifically for you.
