When choosing a Tampa plastic surgeon, you should consider a variety of factors to ensure that you select an experienced and successful doctor. If you skip this crucial step, you could end up with a doctor who does irreparable damage to your body or face.

Some questions you may want to ask of any Tampa plastic surgeon you are considering:

  • “How much experience do you have performing this particular procedure?” Specifically, you can ask how often they do the surgery you are considering, what sort of specific training they have for it, and if they have any particular complications or problems with this procedure. The answers to these questions should give you a good idea of how familiar they are with the procedure you’d like.
  • “Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?” This certification ensures that a surgeon graduated from an accredited medical school and has at a minimum, five additional years of training as a resident.
  • “How many of your patients are referrals or repeat clients?” The answer to this question will let you know if the work this surgeon has performed is good enough that his or her patients would trust them again.
  • “Do you have any industry awards?” There are good plastic surgery doctors that have no industry honors, but you can be sure that awards indicate an especially high caliber of work.

Of course, you should also follow your instincts when choosing a Tampa plastic surgeon. The most important deciding factor in choosing your doctor should be whether or not you feel comfortable with him or her. If you don’t – or if anything feels out of place – move on and consider another doctor. Your health and physical appearance are at stake.
