How to safely choose the right plastic surgery provider
When it comes to plastic surgery, choosing a surgeon is one of the most important decisions you make. Plastic surgery has come a long way in the decades since it became popular. Not only have plastic surgery techniques advanced in terms of sophistication and safety, men and women have also become much more comfortable with the idea of improving their appearance through plastic surgery.
The truth is that there is no one size fits all practice or surgeon. Even if you get the same doctor as your neighbour, you may find that it is not the right one for you, and that's okay. Plastic surgery can be a great, positive, and potentially life-changing experience, so remember not to rush the process. It's also a very personal experience, so what makes sense to your neighbours may not make sense to you. Experienced surgeons understand this and won't force a decision or rush you into surgery until you're ready. There are several criteria you can use to determine whether a particular surgeon is right for you and your procedure:
Look for certification in plastic surgery
For safety reasons and to ensure you find the best surgeon, make sure they have relevant certifications in their practice from their relevant country. Plastic surgery is dangerous if done with an unlicensed doctor who hasn’t had the relevant medical training.
Understand the surgeon's style
Different surgeons have different styles and expertise. You pick hairdressers carefully so it only makes sense to do the same with a surgeon. They will have a varied set of expertise and the same surgeon who did your liposuction may not be the best doctor for a breast augmentation procedure.
Vet the facility
There are a number of world-class facilities around the world. Some are in New Zealand and some are overseas. When you choose a location and surgeon you also need to choose the hospital as you’ll spend some time here in pre-op and post-op recovery, plus the procedure itself.
Find a provider you can trust
Making all these decisions without the guidance of an expert can be overwhelming. It’s hard to know who will do a fantastic and safe job and who just has good marketing. Check testimonials and reviews on websites. These are a good sign for customers.
