3 Tips For Finding The Right Plastic Surgeon

If you are planning elective surgery, such as a plastic surgery procedure, you must be very diligent about finding a board-certified plastic surgeon who has the knowledge, experience, and training to provide you with the safest and best results.

To get you started, here are 4 things to consider when looking for a plastic surgeon:

1. Board-Certification

The first thing you should ensure when selecting a plastic surgeon is that you are working with someone reputable. Any plastic surgeon you are considering should be a member of the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgery.

This means that he/she:

  • Adheres to a strict code of ethics
  • Has passed comprehensive examinations
  • Has completed a minimum of 5 years of surgical training
  • Has extensive training in all forms of cosmetic and plastic surgeries

This is the best way to ensure that you minimize your surgical risks and that you get the natural-looking, long lasting and beautiful results you are looking for.


2. Personality

A consultation is a great opportunity to ensure that the plastic surgeon you choose is a good fit. During this appointment, pay attention to the surgeon’s overall demeanor. Ask yourself:

  • Does he/she answer questions in a detailed and professional manner?
  • Does the surgeon take his or her time during the consultation to address your needs, or do they seem rushed?
  • Are you confident in this person’s ability to operate on you?

A surgeon’s mannerisms and demeanor during the consultation is a good indicator of how he/she will act during your surgery and post-operatively.

3. Customization

Each person’s body shape, facial structure, and aesthetic needs are unique. This means that you must find a plastic surgeon who will create a customized plastic surgery plan for you and tailor the procedure to your specific anatomical and aesthetic needs.

Choose a surgeon who will:

  • Carefully incorporate your personal cosmetic goals and needs into the plan
  • Spend time customizing your procedure
  • Encourage you to share your aesthetic desires and goals
  • Pay careful attention to your concerns regarding your overall look

Remember: If your surgeon adopts a cookie-cutter approach to cosmetic surgery, your results may not turn out to be as desirable as you want.

Always Ask Detailed Questions

Plastic surgery is not a decision that should be taken lightly. To ensure you stay safe, you must ask your potential surgeon some detailed questions, including:

  • How many times have you performed this procedure?
  • How many years of experience do you have?
  • What specific technique will be used? Why do you use this technique over any other?
  • Is anyone assisting you with the procedure? If so, what training do they have?
  • Who will administer and monitor the sedation?
  • Realistically, what results can I expect?
  • Have you had any instances of complications with this procedure? If so, what were they?

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
