Plastic surgery not only offers patients a renewed physical appearance, but it also raises their self-confidence and changes their outlook on life for the better. For this reason, it is understandable that new patients are usually eager to start their cosmetic surgery journey as soon as possible.
However, before scheduling their procedure, it is crucial for them to assess their options thoroughly. Plastic surgery is a complex procedure, which should only be undertaken by a skilled and experienced surgeon for beautiful results.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides safe and proven procedures for the breast, body and face to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Patients should ideally create a list of any questions that they may have prior to setting up an appointment with a surgeon for their procedure.
A comprehensive understanding of the areas to be evaluated can help them choose the right cosmetic surgeon for their unique needs. Patients should determine a plastic surgeon with the appropriate background and experience, likely an ABPS board certified plastic surgeon.
Correlating with this, the patient should consider a plastic surgeon whose fees are affordable to them. It is important for the patient to feel comfortable with the personality and bedside manner of the surgeon. Does the patient want to work with a friendly surgeon who makes them feel comfortable? Or one who possesses a more business-like approach to the surgical process?
Is the patient seeking a surgeon who will guide them on the most suitable techniques for them or one who follows a “cookie-cutter” approach? It’s vital for the patient to find answers to such questions before a consultation with a surgeon to ensure that they arrive at the right decision.
It’s essential for the patient to choose a surgeon with specialized training. But it is equally vital to understand whether the surgeon has the requisite practice experience in cosmetic surgery procedures.
In case the patient seeks a particular type of surgical technique or a combination of procedures, they should work with a cosmetic surgeon with experience in these specific procedures.
