Answers to All Your Plastic Surgery Questions
Our in-depth consultations give you one-on-one time with your surgeon so that you can learn all about your cosmetic options and ask a full range of questions. Our doctors feel that patient education is one of their essential missions, and they take their role as educators seriously. Below are just a few questions you should consider asking of any surgical practice you visit for a consultation.
- Is the plastic surgeon board-certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery?
- Has the plastic surgeon completed at least five years of surgical training and a minimum of two years of plastic surgery training?
- Is the plastic surgeon trained and experienced in all plastic surgery procedures, including breast, body, face and reconstruction?
In addition, be sure to ask questions that are “procedure-specific.” For example, ask the physician how many eyelid surgeries he or she has performed. You can even go one step further by asking how many eyelid surgeries he or she has performed on someone your age or skin coloring, etc.
Before scheduling surgery, research the doctor’s qualifications and his or her surgical experience. Ask about training and educational background. It’s also a good idea to contact the physician’s office and speak with a nurse to obtain pertinent information about the practice and the physician.
