How to Trust a Plastic Surgeon

Knowing whether or not your plastic surgeon is worth trusting is one of the most important ways to gauge if he or she is the right choice for you.

There are several factors that should be taken into account before signing on the dotted line to have SmartLipo (or any other procedure for that matter). Here are the top things to look for.

Investigate their Qualifications

While all surgery carries some risk, the chance for complications is significantly reduced by choosing a plastic surgeon who possesses the following attributes:

  • Board Certified
  • Looks out for patients’ best interests
  • Previous good outcomes (look at their before & after pictures)
  • Excellent safety record
  • Highly trained and experienced in laser-assisted liposuction techniques

Travel to See the Surgeon

Don’t rule out the possibility of traveling for your surgery if you are unable to locate a SmartLipo expert in your area that you can trust completely.

Don’t choose a plastic surgeon solely on price, as you may end up needing revisions due to unattractive or painful outcomes after your laser fat removal procedure. Doctors who are willing to offer rock-bottom pricing in order to get more patients in the the door is not someone you want operating on you.

Read Online Reviews

This is a fairly new way of evaluating a plastic surgeon, but is one of the most telling. In a world where you can read about other peoples’ experiences in an instant, it is very valuable to read honest opinions online.

Go to online review sites to see what other patients are saying. Some reviews can be emotionally-based rather than factual, so use a discriminating eye to determine which reviews are actually factual and helpful.
