What’s the best way to find the right surgeon? Search PlasticSurgery.org for a board certified surgeon in your area, and schedule a consultation with a few surgeons. You should be able to relate to a surgeon and feel like you’re going to have a long-term relationship with him or her.
What pieces of advice would you give to someone looking to have cosmetic surgery of any kind? Do your homework in order to pick a plastic surgeon and find out about their experience performing the procedure. Also, ask to see before and after photos.
What are the most popular cosmetic services that you offer? Breast augmentation, local anesthesia facelift, rhinoplasty, tummy tuck, fat grafting, mommy makeover procedures, hair restoration and revision of plastic surgery for the face and body.
Do you think someone can have too much cosmetic surgery? This can be assessed on an individual basis, but it takes interviewing the patient to know if they are having symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder. When done correctly, plastic surgery restores your appearance in a natural way.
