Choosing the right cosmetic surgeon to perform your procedure can greatly affect the outcome of your surgery. You’ll want to find a reputable plastic surgeon who has extensive experience in the field, so that your surgery will be performed safely and will produce the results you desire. The most reliable way to ensure that your cosmetic surgeon has received proper education and training is to check that he or she is Board Certified through the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) to perform plastic surgery procedures on the face and body. The ABPS has strict surgical training requirements, and some of the highest standards for certification.

You’ll also want to choose a surgeon who specializes in the type of procedure you’re interested in. Feel free to ask how many times your cosmetic surgeon has performed this particular procedure and how regularly he or she performs it. If you need a very specific type of procedure, such as revision rhinoplasty, make sure to inquire about that. The challenges presented by these types of procedures can be very different than those presented by the more common variations.

In addition to finding a cosmetic surgeon with the appropriate training, education and experience, you’ll also want to find a surgeon who provides prospective patients with many “before” and “after” photos of other patients. These images can help you assess the skill level of the surgeon and determine whether his surgical techniques can produce the outcome you want.

Once you’ve found a cosmetic surgeon you can trust, you’ll be able to schedule a one-on-one consultation to discuss your wishes and learn more about what that surgeon can do for you. In the end, what matters is that you feel comfortable with your surgeon and that you are confident in his or her abilities.
