How To Find A Plastic Surgeon

Jun 6, 2008
In the United States you have many options available to you if you wish to have any sort of cosmetic or plastic surgery operating performed. You should not simply pick the first plastic surgeon you meet and dive into a costly and personal procedure without doing some research.

You'll probably want to put together a list of plastic surgeons to choose from and then meet with each one personally at some point, even if that means driving around for a couple of days and doing some serious research. The more time you spend researching your decision before your procedure, the less time you'll spend regretting it later.

There are many different ways to find a plastic surgeon but here are some more useful ways of finding a surgeon you can trust and work with:

Ask your current medical professionals: Whether you're at the hospital or just visiting your doctor, people in the medical professional stay in communication with each other and often share patients. They can often recommend people from outside their own expertise area. Many doctors around will gladly recommend a plastic surgeon they have heard good things about.

Ask other plastic surgeons about specialists: Some people who choose to have cosmetic surgery of one type or another often later to choose to have another type later one. Perhaps someone choose to have rhinoplasty first and then a year later decides she would like to look into breast augmentation. An obvious person to ask about about a referral would be the plastic surgeon who performed her nose job. Sometimes the same practice will have multiple cosmetic surgeons who specialize in different parts of the body.

Ask former patients and clients of plastic surgeons: All plastic surgeons benefit from having happy clients who spread the word about their business, so if you know someone who has had a procedure similar to the one you are looking at, ask the person if he or she was happy with his plastic surgeon.

Ask a local hospital about plastic surgeons they recomment: Many plastic surgeons work out of local hospitals and most hospitals have a reference telephone number or website you can use to see which plastic surgeons work there. Most hospitals are very strict about making sure the doctors working in them are qualified and competent.

Remember, these methods are simply a good way to initially find a list of qualified plastic surgeons for your procedure. You'll still want to meet and work with each doctor before you make a life-changing decision. Take your time, do your research, check references and, most important of all, trust yourself to make the right decision!
