Plastic Surgery in Seattle: Four Choices you Shouldn't Make

Jun 12, 2008
Seattle is a beautiful, green city sprawled alongside Puget Sound. Since the advent of the dotcom economic sector, Seattle has been a major breeding ground for new industries and technological ventures. The fact that Microsoft is headquartered in the suburb of Redmond has made Seattle a magnet city for new tech companies and services.

It is also a city with a large population of young, ambitious, attractive professionals. While it gave birth to the "grunge" movement in rock music and while the tech industries are noted for their casual dress codes, Seattle's active residents are just as appearance conscious as young New York movers and shakers. Cosmetic plastic surgery is a thriving business in the Seattle area; if you are in search of the right plastic surgeon or the right personal enhancement procedure, you'll find lots of choices there.

Since cosmetic plastic surgeons really have to get it right the first time, it's incumbent on you to be prepared to make the right choice for your personal body enhancement goals.
Cosmetic plastic surgery patients have given the entire process a great deal of thought. You've chosen to proceed; now you've got to choose the right practitioner. Here are four choices you SHOULDN'T make:

1. Don't do this on the cheap. Find out what the price ranges are for the procedure you're seeking: it's easily researched on the Internet. You're going to have to live with a breast augmentation or a forehead lift or a tummy tuck for a long time. Don't let cost be a deciding factor; like anything else you get the eye tuck or nose job that you pay for. Many clinics have payment plans available.

2. Don't be content with a surgeon who is new to the game. In many states, any doctor can claim to be a plastic surgeon as long as s/he is an M.D. You want a board-certified plastic surgeon who paid the dues in residency and who has trained for the procedure you want.

3. Don't settle for a cosmetic plastic surgeon that doesn't specialize in the procedure(s) you're seeking. Aesthetic surgery is so widespread now that there are specialists for breast augmentation, specialists for rhinoplasty (nose work); specialists for facial lifts and tucks, etc. Take the time to find the right one.

4. Don't opt for the latest, greatest "new thing" unless it's been vetted by the FDA. There are new fillers like Botox on the market that may have serious side effects. New procedures can be tested on someone else. People who opted for silicon injections some years ago ended up with deformed bodies and expensive removal procedures.
