Before any patient can undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure, they must first select the right plastic surgeon to perform their surgery. Making this selection can be a time-consuming process, but it also doesn’t have to be. The trick is knowing what to look for. With this in mind, the expert plastic surgeons here at Atlanta Plastic Surgery wanted to highlight some helpful tips for patients when choosing a plastic surgeon to perform their procedure.
Specific Expertise Is Important
When it comes to selecting a plastic surgeon, it is essential to select a doctor who is not only qualified, but experienced performing the specific procedure(s) that you are interested in undergoing. In addition to discussing this expertise during the pre-surgery consultation appointment, ask to see plastic surgery before and after photos and testimonials from past patients that they have worked with in the past.
Patient Care Should Always Be a Priority
Obviously the final results of your procedure are incredibly important to consider, but it’s also essential that you find a plastic surgeon who is capable of providing an outstanding experience throughout the entire process. That means creating an environment with a helpful staff that will always make the patient feel comfortable and cared for in the lead-up to their procedure, as well as the post-surgery recovery period.
Communication Is Critical
When you are getting acquainted with your new plastic surgeon and their medical team, the line of communication between you and them should be effortless. We think of our patients as partners and make sure to really listen to their preferences, questions, and curiosities in order to ensure their needs are met. It’s important that the plastic surgery process be collaborative and for the patient to always feel like their voice is being heard.
If finances are a concern, make sure your plastic surgeon offers plastic surgery financing options to assist with the potential costs of your procedure.When picking a plastic surgeon, it’s important to take your time and do your research. Doing so is a great way to promote the best plastic surgery experience and the best results from our procedure.
