Six Sneaky Ways to Check Out Your Plastic Surgeon

Jun 26, 2008
You've done your research and you have a few plastic surgeons picked out for your exciting new look. You're feeling pretty good about the doctor and the procedure but you want to make absolutely sure that your cosmetic
surgeon is completely on the up and up.

Here are six sneaky (and legal) ways you can check out your plastic surgeon to make sure you're going to be in good hands:

1. Look up Your Surgeon on the Web - You should probably look up your plastic surgeon's name and practice on Google or another search engine to make sure he or she has a good reputation and doesn't have any skeletons in the closet. When you use Google you'll be able to search message boards, websites and all sorts of blogs instantly for your surgeon's name and practice. If your plastic surgeon is experienced and has a lot of happy clients you will definitely find some testimony and people raving about the services. Likewise, if there are a lot of unhappy people you will probably read about it. Don't be discouraged by one or two bad comments, but try to go with the general consensus of client opinions. If you find any very negative reviews or comments you may want to bring it up with your plastic surgeon to see what he or she says to explain the situation.

2. Pay Attention To the Waiting Room and Offices - You'll want to keep an eye out around your plastic surgeon's waiting room and offices. Make sure they are clean and tidy and kept in good condition. You might even want to make sure the magazines are new and up to date. A plastic surgeon is a business owner as well and if a business owner doesn't keep is business clean and desirable then it could be a sign of a troubled business or lack of attention to detail.

3. Personal Appearance - Your plastic surgeon's personal appearance should be neat and professional, just like any other doctor or professional you'd invite into your home. Just as you would not want to eat food from a restaurant with sloppy and dirty waiters and cooks you would not want to be operated on by someone who cannot take the time to keep up physical appearances.

4. Personal Interaction - Pay attention to how your plastic surgeon speaks to you, answers your questions and generally treats you. He should treat you professionally and with respect as two business partners should respect each other. If your plastic surgeon is dismissive of your concerns, don't ask you many questions or doesn't treat you well, you should look elsewhere. After all, if your surgeon isn't listening and respecting your opinion then how you can expect him to change your body the way you want?

5. Interaction With Staff - Just as you should expect respect and professional treatment, watch to make sure your plastic surgeon also treats his or her staff and colleagues with respect. Remember, this person is going to make permanent and life-changing modifications to your body and you want this to be done by someone who genuinely wants to make you happy and is just simply looking at the paycheck at the end of the day.

6. Visit the Hospital - Many cosmetic surgery procedures need to performed in a hospital even if they are only outpatient procedures. Your plastic surgeon will have a relationship with a local hospital. You can almost certainly visit the hospital and ask the nursing staff or people working there about your plastic surgeon.

Obviously you may not be able to check up on your plastic surgeon with all of these methods, but by paying attention to detail and using some simple techniques you will get a much better idea whether your choice of plastic surgeon is a good or bad one.
