5 Tips for Choosing a Plastic Surgeon, Lincoln, Nebraska

No matter how confident you are, there may be certain aspects of your appearance that make you uncomfortable. If you are interested in enhancing these areas, you may be considering cosmetic surgery. When done correctly, these procedures can boost your confidence and improve the way you look and feel. Choosing the right plastic surgeon is the key to making your surgery a success. 

How to Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon

1. Take Your Time

Cosmetic procedures should never be done in a hurry, Although you may be eager to get a breast augmentation or tummy tuck before an event, you should never choose a plastic surgeon simply because they can fit you in the following week. Take your time and be selective about the surgeon you choose to avoid problems.

2. Find Someone Who Specializes in Your Procedure

Plastic surgeons spend years perfecting their craft and specializing in specific procedures. Research each practitioner’s specialty, and only schedule a consultation with those who have experience with the surgery you want.

3. Check Board Certifications

Always ask if your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. This certification verifies they have been approved to perform cosmetic procedures and their practice is fully licensed.

4. Ask to See Their Portfolio

Any reputable surgeon will have a portfolio of previous patients. This will show you before and after photos and allow you to get an idea of your surgeon’s craftsmanship. Specifically, you want to see if the end results match your goals and how well your surgeon can minimize scarring.

5. Go With Your Gut

Ultimately, you have to feel comfortable with the plastic surgeon you choose. Their clinic, staff, and prior work need to make you feel relaxed, cared for, and at ease. Go with your gut and choose the professional you feel is the most trustworthy.
