How to choose a Sacramento Plastic surgeon

You have decided to have plastic surgery in the Sacramento area. Read below to learn how to choose your plastic surgeon

So you have decided to have plastic surgery. You have thought about it for a long time. You have worked hard and saved for the procedure, how will you choose your plastic surgeon? No matter what surgery you are considering, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction or mommy makeover which includes tummy tuck and liposuction as well as breast surgery. Or maybe facial procedures such as facelift or eyelid surgery, you have to start looking for the surgeon that will be able to deliver that result you are expecting.

The first place to start is to ask family or friends who have had prior plastic surgery, they can be a very good source of information regarding their experience and surgical outcome. Remember that is only part of the answer, you are looking for a plastic surgeon in the Sacramento area that can consistently provide excellent results. Other good sources for referrals include your physicians, they have most likely seen many patient’s results and can provide some help. (But be aware that there may be friendships and referral patterns that are not necessarily in your best interest) but it is a starting point. One of the best sources of referral is your hair stylist or esthetician, they have the most contact with people who have undergone cosmetic surgery here in Sacramento and surrounding areas. They actually see the results and are good judge of outcome, by comparing before and after results first hand, since they see many clients and tend to have discussions regarding the procedures. I find hair stylists to be a great source for names of plastic surgeons in Sacramento area to start your search for your cosmetic surgeon.

OK, now you hopefully have several names or may be you did not find any referrals, next place to go is online. Try Google, Yahoo, Bing whatever your favorite search engine is. But a better place would be Review sites such as Realself.com to look for the best Sacramento plastic surgeon. Also try Healthgrades.com for patient reviews. Here you should be able to come up with names of several surgeons you like. Take your time and read the online reviews. These are great source of information regarding the plastic surgeon’s technical skills, bedside manner and abilities. Also read about the office staff, you will spend a lot of time with them as well. Spend some time reading the reviews of others who have already had the procedure you are interested in.

Before you call the office to ask questions or make an appointment, there is one more step to complete. Check to see if the physician is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery the only certifying board for plastic surgeons. This part is easy if they are a member of ASPS ( American Society of Plastic Surgeons) or member of ASAPS ( American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) then the plastic surgeon you want is a fully trained and board certified cosmetic surgeon. That is how you find a board certified plastic surgeon who is a well qualified cosmetic surgeon.

Now that you have found the board certified cosmetic surgeon, checkout the web site. Look at the before and after photos in the photo gallery.
