Questions to Ask Concerning Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery is can be a liberating option for someone who wants to alter his or her aesthetic appearance. It can also help individuals that are suffering from physical issues, like severe burns or disfigurements. If you are considering having one of these procedures done, be sure to interview any surgeon that you plan to work with. Try using some of the following questions to become more familiar with your doctor’s history and experience.

  • How long have you been practicing?
    A physician's experience directly reflects the level of work he or she is capable of. The more facelifts, tummy tucks or breast implants that your doctor has safely performed, the higher the likelihood that the surgeon will do an excellent job for you.

  • What area of cosmetic surgery do you specialize in?
    Many surgeons choose to focus on one area of plastic surgery, and develop their expertise in that field. Though your physician may be capable of performing facial procedures, such as rhinoplasty, the doctor may have built a reputation on successful liposuction. Be sure to research the reputation of each physician before even entering into the office. That way, you will have a better idea of what type reconstructive surgeries he or she has performed.

  • Do you have any customer testimonials or before and after photos?
    Looking at a surgeon's before and after photos of any reconstructive surgery can give you a good idea of the quality of his or her work. You can judge if the breast implants look natural, or the results of someone's eyelid lift. Also, try to find reviews from previous clients. If they were happy with their procedure, you can feel more confident in your plastic surgeon.

    The rewarding yet demanding field of cosmetic surgery all starts in the classroom. Students wishing to become cosmetic or plastic surgeons must attend at least four years of medical school after college, followed by a residency program. Students then declare a specialty in plastic surgery and undergo training for three years with a residency in this area.

    After the student becomes licensed, he or she can begin practicing cosmetic surgery, which involves clinical procedures like tummy tucks and rhinoplasty. They may open their own practice or work in a clinic or hospital to help people augment their faces through lifts, for example. They may work as part of a cosmetic surgical team within a hospital or clinic that provide a broad range of services such as eyelid lifts and penis enlargements, all using lasers and other equipment.

    Attention to detail, a steady hand, and good communication and teamwork are all necessary for this career. Doctors in this field must have steady precision when it comes to performing high-tech procedures involving breast implants and reductions, buttock enlargements, and the like.

    Many plastic surgeons work primarily on reconstructive surgical teams in trauma wards to help people restore their facial features, for example, after a terrible accident. Birth defects can also lead to a person wanting to change their appearance. These reconstructive procedures are generally covered under health insurance but elective surgeries, such as silicone injections for filling wrinkles and cosmetic rhinoplasty, are generally not covered. Dental reconstructive work may also be covered in whole or in part. Liposuction is generally an elective surgery and the payment for this procedure, along with breast implants, comes out of the patient’s pocket through a financial plan.
