Signs of A Great Cosmetic Surgeon

Published by Aubrey Sohaney

Cosmetic surgery is an important decision and making sure that you are using the right cosmetic surgeon is one of the biggest steps in the process. It can be hard to know if you are making the right choice, but it is very important that you do. There are plenty of doctors that specialize in cosmetic surgery, but not every doctor can give you the results that you hope for. Cosmetic surgery is an art that requires a combination of education, experience, and talent. Making sure that your surgeon has all three main qualities can change the outcome of your surgery.

There are three ways you can tell if you are going with the right surgeon.

  1. Honest evaluation
  2. Past performance
  3. Patient-centered practice

Honest Evaluation

When you meet for a consultation, you want to have an honest evaluation. In some cases, the surgeon will reassure you that everything that you want done can be done and you will get the results you want, but they leave off the potential risks or they do not give you a realistic explanation of the results. You will know if you are with the right person by the consultation. The right team will let you know upfront and honestly about every aspect of the surgery, going through the risks as well as all the benefits. They will be more concerned with your health and the overall wellness than selling you a procedure.

Past Performance

How are other people rating this surgeon? Are the majority happy with their results? Can you take a look at some before and after pictures? You should feel confident going into the consult that this provider has helped many people to get the results that they hoped for. People are typically honest about their level of satisfaction so pay attention to what other patients have to say. You want to make sure that this surgeon has performed your specific procedure before and that you can see before and after pictures of what you want.

Patient Centered Practice

Do you feel like your case is an important case? Do you feel comfortable and welcomed in the office? You should! A patient focused practice will work hard to ensure that all of the patients feel comfortable in the environment from the minute they walk through the door.

If you do not feel comfortable in the office or with the surgeon, it is not the right surgeon or practice for you. Here at the Center for Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, we work with you to ensure that you receive the results you want and feel immediate ease with our team and at our practice.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
