Tips For Choosing a Cosmetic Surgeon


September 26, 2016

Choosing a cosmetic surgeon is not like choosing where to go for lunch. This decision will stay with you for your entire life and it is important that you feel confident in your choice. The research process begins online, scanning the field and seeing what your options are. Once you have narrowed it down, you should go in for consultation and evaluate the doctor that sits in front of you. Here are some things to look for:

Are They Board Certified?
Medical doctors with general surgery training often get into the cosmetic field in pursuit of greater profits. This is not the type of care that you want when it comes to your SmartLipo or Gynecomastia surgery. You want surgeons certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery because of their expertise in the specific field. At Wall Street Cosmetic Surgery, we have some of the best surgeons in the business. Dr. Emmanuel Asare and Dr. Gordon Andan are both board certified and ready to answer all of your questions.

Do They Have Procedure Experience?
You wouldn’t trust a plumber to fix your car, so you shouldn’t trust a cosmetic surgeon whose expertise is in a different field. For example, if you are inquiring about a SmartLipo procedure, you’re not going to a surgeon who specializes in face lifts. At Wall Street Cosmetic Surgery, our surgeons are known for their work in male breast reduction, SmartLipo and mommy makeovers.

What Will You Look Like?
When you go on your visits, it is important to ask for pictures from previous procedures. As you scan through, pay close attention to the figure of the patients in the before shots. Do they have a similar body type to yours? What procedure did they receive? Are you satisfied with their results? The best way to predict your post-surgery appearance is to look at previous patients with a similar starting point.

Do You Like The Surgeon?
Believe it or not, connecting with your surgeon is one of the most important steps in the process. Don’t just settle for someone who doesn’t go out of their way to comfort and consult you on what is right for you. Any procedure is bound to cause anxiety, but connecting with your surgeon on a personal level might ease the tension.

Your research is all you have when it comes to choosing the right cosmetic surgeon for you. Some decisions might be more difficult than others, but you’ll feel it when you meet the right person for the job.
