4 Tips to help you when selecting a facial contouring surgeon







Too many doctors…and you can only select one for your surgery.

How do you go about making that selection?

We put together a criteria list of important information to check about your surgeon before going under the knife.

1. Research

We cannot stress enough how important research is. Research involves checking credentials, checking previous patients’ results and asking questions. 

A board-certified plastic surgeon is completely different from a cosmetic surgeon so you have to make sure that the selected surgeon is qualified and experienced to perform your surgery. The surgeon should be able to give you the best results with the first surgery only.



Another point it, learning what the procedure entails and getting answers about any questions you have during the face to face consultation with the surgeon. 

The questions can include surgery procedures, anesthesia, surgery duration, post-surgery care etc. and should be addressed to the surgeon directly. Take notes if you have to during the consultation, so you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.

2. Anesthesia

A board-certified anesthesiologist should administer the anesthesia and monitor your condition throughout the surgery duration. You have to make sure that an anesthesiologist will be present and is trained to take action if required.



If you are taking any medication or have any disorders or symptoms, for your own safety you have to make sure to disclose your medical history.

3. Surgery facilities

People may not think of the surgery facilities being important, but a clinic needs to have the proper space and facilities for surgery with trained staff members. You can check if you will stay overnight, and what services are offered by the clinic to care for you post-surgery. 



4. Dealing with surgery results or medical emergencies

Post-surgery care is just as important as the surgery itself. Be sure to check how they will resolve post-surgery issues. Another important part is checking what would happen in case of a medical emergency. Surgery complications, although not so common, can still happen, so make sure that you are in good hands.

As with anything in life, proper planning is crucial so take the time and consider all your options.
