How To Choose The Right Plastic Surgeon

Posted by on May 21, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Doing research when you’re looking for the perfect plastic surgeon can be quite difficult – with so many (apparently) qualified surgeons out there. Which one is the right one for you? It’s a hard decision made harder by the fact that not all surgeons are equal, and when they’re performing potentially invasive cosmetic surgery, you want to make sure that they’re the best. To give you a better idea of what you should be looking for in a plastic surgeon, in this article we offer some great tips to give you a better place to start looking at surgeons from.

Finding the right plastic surgeon for you

Whether you’re wanting to get a rhinoplasty in Sydney or a facelift in Melbourne, finding a good plastic surgeon requires the same basic approach. First you should make sure that the surgeon you’re interested in certified by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, as this body is the only one capable of providing internationally recognised plastic surgery training. The quickest way to find out if your surgeon is qualified at a glance is by looking for the ‘FRACS (Plast)’ that follows after their name, which also indicates a membership with the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). This is so important because most people don’t know that anyone can refer to themselves as a cosmetic surgeon if they possess a medical degree, and not all of these people will have the same training – many far from it. After learning about whether your plastic surgeon has the core qualifications, it’s also a good idea to then find out if they have relevant training in their respective sub-speciality area. Formal training is usually obtained through a Fellowship, where a surgeon will work under a surgeon highly regarded in the sub-specialty field, performing surgeries and also receiving training at the same time.

More things to keep an eye out for

When you’re looking for a plastic surgeon, it’s important to remember that it’s not all about qualifications. Finding a surgeon who is highly relatable and demonstrates complete honesty is also extremely important – and some may say even harder to find than good qualifications! A good surgeon will always demonstrate to the patient any of the risks involved with the procedure they are interested in, as well as ensuring that any expectations are fully managed. Plus, rather than giving you a rehearsed spiel, surgeons who care about you and the procedure will want to have you ask all of the questions that are on your mind – surgeons shouldn’t be selling you a procedure, so if you ever feel like this is the case it’s probably best to find someone else. A good plastic surgeon at the end of the day will be all about transparency, integrity and what is best for the patient.

Asking questions matters

Although finding am excellent cosmetic surgeon is not always easy, there are quite a few things that can make the process much easier for you. If the above are still unclear to you, at the end of the day its best for you to trust your health instincts. Perhaps the best way to help you discover this is by asking questions and noting to what degree your questions are answered and how completely the surgeon listens to you. If this is the case, there will also be a much better chance that you will also receive the same good care post-operatively.
