Is your face badly burnt because of a fire accident that you were involved in the past? Is your face badly injured because of an accident? Do you want to alter the shape of your nose or lips? Do you want to reduce or increase the size of your breasts? If you have answered “yes” to at least one of these questions, you need to visit a plastic surgeon at the earliest. While the first two questions relate to a more serious issue, the other questions are mostly to bring a makeover to your appearance. Most of the celebrities opt for one or multiple plastic surgeries to stay in the show biz for a long time. However, it doesn’t work well for a few of them. Plastic surgeries have gone horribly wrongly for some celebrities. That’s because they didn’t choose the right surgeon for the same. Here are some tips that will help you choose the right plastic surgery San Francisco expert for your needs:
Choose a board-certified surgeon
You need to choose a plastic surgeon, who is certified by a reputed board like the ABPS (American Board of Platic Surgery) or ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgery). A certified surgeon is more reliable and trustworthy because he comes with around 3 years qualification of general medicine, 2 years of general surgery, close to 3 years of specialized qualification in plastic surgery and around 2 years of practical experience on various plastic surgeries and other related treatments. You can rest assured that you are entrusting your looks to a person who knows his job very well.
Choose credible surgeons and accredited facilities
Once you have drilled down on a few certified surgeons, refer to your state’s medical board to know more about the qualification, history and practical experience of these surgeons. Do they have a clean medical history? Have they been involved in any medical negligence in the past where a plastic surgery conducted by them went horribly wrong? Are there any cases pending against them or the clinic that they work in? These are the questions that you should focus on when you cross-check the background and credentials of the plastic surgeon. The San Francisco Plastic Surgery expert that you have chosen should perform surgeries only at accredited facilities in the US like the AAAASF (American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities), JC (Joint Commission) and the AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care Inc.).
Ask the right questions
One of the best ways to choose the right plastic surgeon is to ask the right questions when you fix an initial appointment with him. Ask him about the complete details about the treatment, its duration, recovery period and side effects. You should also know if he would be performing the surgery individually or with a team. If he is performing it with a team, you should know the names and credentials of each of these team members to be sure that you are not cheated at any stage. Ask him about the sedation process and what he/his team would do in case of an emergency, to understand his process better.
