Three Factors To Consider Before You Select a Plastic Surgeon

Every day, we seek research and information about the professional services we need in our lives. We’ll scour search engines, rating websites, social media, and even seek references for plumbers, contractors, car dealerships, and veterinarians. Shouldn’t you take the same diligent approach for your board-certified plastic surgeon?

Like choosing any doctor, searching for a plastic surgeon should include research, references, and ultimately be someone that you can trust. Making sure your doctor has the proper credentials and is registered with the ASPS. Here are three factors you need to take into consideration before you select a plastic surgeon for your cosmetic procedure.

• Is your surgeon board certified?
This is a very important question that every potential patient should ask. While any doctor can be “board certified,” it’s important to understand which board they are certified by. Your plastic surgeon needs to be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. This board certification assures you are getting the highest quality care. If a different board certifies a plastic surgeon, you may want to look elsewhere. All four doctors of CAPS are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and hold high credentials in their areas of specialty.

• Look through the before & after portfolio.
Every board-certified plastic surgeon should have a before and after
portfolio that they can display of the procedures they have completed, with demonstrated results. This portfolio will give you a strong indication of their capabilities, and allow you to make a more educated decision of whether or not a procedure is right for you. Before you agree to any procedure, be sure to see the doctor’s portfolio. Click here to see CAPS’ portfolio of procedures.

• Read the right reviews.
While online reviews are a good starting point, they can also give mixed indications of any doctor’s abilities. Instead of limiting your reading to online reviews, be sure to research their history with the state licensing authority as well. The State Medical Board of Ohio will list a doctor’s specialties, as well as disciplinary action taken against doctors.

With the right research, you’ll find that the doctors of CAPS are the most qualified to help you achieve the perfect look for your life. Setup your consultation today, and learn why CAPS doctors are the most trusted and qualified throughout Central Ohio!
