Choosing a Cosmetic Surgeon

When planning a cosmetic procedure, it’s important to engage a cosmetic surgeon that you can trust and feel confident with. The results of your procedure are results you’ll be living with for most, if not, all of your life, so choosing a cosmetic surgeon is the first and most important decision to the overall journey. When it comes to knowing what to ask or search for beforehand, there are a few things to keep in mind that will assist in guiding you to finding the perfect surgeon for your specific procedure.

Cosmetic surgery is a highly competitive industry and there are a lot of surgeons that claim to be the best in their field, however, the only time a surgeon should be considered for your specific operation is if they specialise in that designated field. If you’re unsure of how to choose the right surgeon for your operation, we’ve collated a list of questions and things to keep in mind moving forward.

Tips to Choosing a Cosmetic Surgeon

Personal Recommendations

One of the first things you can do leading up to deciding on your procedure is seeking personal recommendations from friends and family, or even looking at forums online and Google reviews. An understanding of people’s personal experiences with surgeons and clinics is especially important when forming your conclusion. If you can find a clinic that specialises in your preferred procedure, checking their reviews on as many platforms as possible is a great tool to utilise.

Medical Referrals and Consultations

Although personal recommendations are important, it’s also useful to ask your GP or any additional healthcare providers if they know of and can recommend a cosmetic surgeon for your specified procedure. Once you have a few surgeons noted down, you can give them a call to discuss your plans and even book a consultation; this will allow you to gauge whether you’ll connect with a specific surgeon, feel comfortable in their presence and trust in their ability to complete your operation successfully.

Credentials and Experience

Skills, training, and qualifications are extremely imperative to take into consideration when choosing a cosmetic surgeon. Many countries offer a ‘board’ of some sort that lets you search for specific surgeons to double check their credentials and qualifications. Before you engage with any surgeon for your cosmetic procedure, make sure you have a good idea about their qualifications and whether they properly line up with what you’re looking at having done. In Australia, you can utilise the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons to find a cosmetic surgeons qualification history.

Understanding a Surgeons Aesthetic

A lot of cosmetic surgeons have before and after pictures on their websites or social media platforms where you can gauge whether their overall work and aesthetic will give the results you’re looking for. Whether you’re looking for breast implants or even eyelid surgery, you should be able to find before and after pictures on the web. If you’ve narrowed your search down to a few surgeons and you’re ready to make a final decision, there’s no harm in contacting each surgeon and asking if it’s possible to see a portfolio of their previous operations. From there, you can both discuss the procedures, how they were performed, and what you should expect if you were to engage each surgeon for your operation.
