The decision to have surgery shouldn’t be taken lightly, and neither should the decision of which cosmetic surgeon is right for you. While there are many highly qualified cosmetic surgeons to choose from, you don’t want to go to one who is inexperienced or unprofessional.

Luckily in this day and age you don’t have to just flip through the phone book to find a cosmetic surgeon and then hope they know what they’re doing. The choice you make will be one that you live with for the rest of your life, or at least for many years. surgery can give you more confidence if done well, but an inexperienced surgeon could mean spending extra time and money getting your surgery corrected.

The first thing you’ll want to look for is that your cosmetic surgeon is board certified. You might be surprised to learn that the U.S. government does not require a surgeon to be trained specifically in the procedures they offer. That means that your cosmetic surgeon may have trained in general surgery and then switched to cosmetic surgery. While they might still do a great job, you do have to be a bit leery of circumstances like this.

You should also look for a surgeon or practice with plenty of experience. As previously mentioned, a surgeon may have plenty of experience in general, but they might not have much in the certain procedure you are looking for. Be sure to ask questions about how many procedures they have performed, their training, how long they have been practicing, etc.
