When looking for the plastic surgeon that best suits you, price should not be your most influential factor. Choose someone whose specialties, training, education, experience and “core values” match your needs and expectations. Dr. Sands at Metairie Plastic Surgeons in Metairie is board-certified to perform niche medical procedures. With that being said, here are just a few tips for finding a cosmetic surgeon you can trust:
Make Sure Your Doctor is Board-Certified in Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery is a highly specialized, so having practiced general surgery is not enough to deliver natural-looking results. Health authorities recommend selecting someone who is board-certified in plastic surgery.
Learn About a Doctor’s Experience
Ideally, choose a surgeon who is performing the sought-after procedure regularly for a minimum of multiple years. Experience is the greatest way to hone one’s skills. So, if you’re considering breast augmentation, then be sure to choose a doctor who frequently operates on breasts and is adept in breast implant surgery and its complementary procedures such as breast lifts.
Choose Someone with a Good Bedside Manner
The right cosmetic surgeon should listen and respect your input, allay your concerns and take the time to answer all your questions. Choose someone you’re comfortable with and can trust.
Pay Attention to the Staff
The plastic surgeon’s staff should exhibit professionalism and sympathy toward all patients.
Ask the doctor’s previous patients about their experiences, read online reviews (taken with a grain of salt) and ask your friends, colleagues, family members or general physician if they have worked with the particular plastic surgeon.
