Plastic Surgery Secrets – Questions you will be asked…

So you’ve decided to get some plastic surgery.  Good for you.

You’ve probably put a lot of thought into what work you’re going to get done, whether it be a face lift, tummy tuck, boob job, calf implants, or tattoo removal.

But how did you pick your plastic surgeon?  Did you go with the one that your insurance agent recommended?  The one that all your friends used?  Or the one that you heard doing a segment on the local morning radio program?

Here’s a list of 10 THINGS THAT SHOULD CONCERN YOU ABOUT YOUR PLASTIC SURGEON CHOICE, courtesy of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons:

  • Pick a surgeon that’s certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
  • Do they offer discount coupons?  “Buy one boob, get the other boob free”?
  • Do they upsell you while you’re getting your consultation, suggesting you get work done that you hadn’t even considered?
  • Do they advertise heavily?  The theory is that good plastic surgeons already have full schedules based on their successful patient referral program that they shouldn’t have to advertise in the mass media.    One observer said “The number of ads a surgeon has is often inversely proportional to the quality of the doctor”
  • Do they use “innovative” techniques that no other doctor does?  Why would you want to go off the beaten path with something that’s not mainstream?
