It’s easy to be bombarded with information these days. Everywhere you turn, there’s someone enticing you to check out the latest cosmetic product or plastic surgery procedure that’s sure to make your life better. Each day, we’re exposed to hundreds of such messages, each offering to solve a different cosmetic problem – from resurfacing lasers for wrinkles to full facelifts and beyond. While many of these procedures really can offer life-changing transformations, the ads don’t always address two of the most important topics: who is performing them and are these procedures even right for you in the first place?
Ads are great at piquing patient interest, but they leave many questions unanswered. For instance, should you have grafting performed or should you choose filler to help restore facial volume? In our strong opinion, these are questions that should only be answered after selecting a plastic surgeon who best understands your needs. Someone who treats you as a person first, and not as just another procedure. Starting off with a candid, in-depth conversation with your plastic surgeon is just the first step toward a successful outcome.
The right plastic surgeon will guide you through surgical and noninvasive options, carefully explaining the pros and cons of both, and also discuss recovery time for surgical vs. non-invasive procedures. When you select a board-certified plastic surgeon with a specialty in cosmetic surgery designated by membership in the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, you’re choosing to work with someone with years of experience in cosmetic and plastic surgery. This doctor will have the experience needed to guide you in the direction that most fits your desires, need for discretion as well as availability for recovery time.
