Whether or not to undergo plastic surgery is a big decision. Patients considering any cosmetic procedure owe it to themselves to be well educated. Knowing about your procedure, and understanding any potential complications, can help when it comes time to choose a doctor whose aesthetic ideals and surgical skills most closely align to your desired outcome.
An Ever Changing Field
The art and science of aesthetic medicine is ever changing. New tools and techniques available to doctors can help patients to achieve more natural results with minimal downtime. For patients to achieve the best possible outcome, it is essential that they verify that their surgeon is up-to date on the latest methods and equipment and is comfortable with, and knowledgeable about, the procedure they are seeking.
At Boulder Plastic Surgery, our doctors are board certified and have decades of combined experience in the field.
When a Bargain Isn’t Such a Good Deal
It’s natural for consumers to seek out the best value for their money, and plastic surgery is no exception. While it can be tempting to choose a surgeon based on price, using this limiting factor doesn’t guarantee a positive outcome and can, in fact, place patients at risk for subpar work or dangerous practices that can have long-term, life-changing consequences.
To ensure the best outcome for their investment, patients should keep a few things in mind:
- Check for Board Certification – Not all doctors advertising as cosmetic surgeons have experience with the procedures they are offering. Making sure your surgeon is board certified, like the doctors at Boulder Plastic Surgery, ensures that they have the proper training and expertise to perform your procedure – improving the chances that you’ll achieve the outcome you desire.
- Look for Testimonials – Satisfied clients are happy to share their experience. Look for testimonials to get an idea of what past patients thought of the service they received.
What you seek from your procedure is unique to you, therefore, it is essential to find a surgeon who shares your view of aesthetics and has experience with your body type and particular concerns. Discuss your goals with your surgeon and look carefully through their before and after samples to see if their skill and view meets your expectations.
The Importance of Customer Service
Making a connection with your surgeon is important. When meeting with a prospective doctor, you should feel comfortable with more than just their skill level. There are a few important questions to ask yourself before agreeing to any procedure:
- Do you feel comfortable with your surgeon?
- Does your surgeon make you feel confident?
- Can you ask questions with the expectation of receiving honest answers?
- Are you comfortable disclosing your medical history to this surgeon?
Being able to ask questions and feel confident that your surgeon has your best interests in mind is key to achieving the outcome you desire when pursuing plastic surgery.
