No matter what type of plastic surgery you are looking to have, you want your surgeon to be a good one. These adjustments to your body are not only things you will have to live with for the rest of your life, but they can also turn into horrible medical experiences with the wrong doctor. However, with the right surgeon, such as Dr. Alan Serure, you will be in safe hands and your plastic surgery can be one of the best experiences of your life!
Here are 5 things to look for in a plastic surgeon.
- Certification and Experience
The most important thing is that your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. While state medical boards are important, this extra certification means that in addition to passing regular boards, your surgeon has many years of added experience specifically in plastic surgery. You can be sure you are among the best of the best.Along with years of experience, make sure your surgeon is a pro at the type of procedure you want. Maybe you want a tummy tuck, and she is more experienced in breast augmentation and tummy tuck is her weakness. You’d probably be better off with someone else.
- Hospital Privileges
This is especially important if the operation will be happening at an outpatient clinic, as most cosmetic surgeries are. Ensure that your chosen surgeon is also allowed to operate (and perform your chosen procedure) in the hospital.
- Great References
Whether on their website, a review site, or simply through word of mouth, pick a surgeon who has great reviews. If there are a lot of people who have been unsatisfied with his work, you probably will be too. But if hundreds of clients give him raving reviews, you will most likely have a positive experience.
- Personally Qualified
This is something only you can decide through personal meetings with the surgeon. While she may be a wonderful doctor, she might not be the right one for you. Whether the cost is too high or you simply don’t get along, there are a variety of personal factors that can—and should—influence your decision. Pick someone you can work with personally and professionally.
