Are you ready to tackle the sagging skin on your neck or to clear up the pesky cellulite standing in the way of your swimsuit body dreams? Approaching a medical problem can seem to be a daunting task and involves a lot, but finding the right doctor and procedure for you is easier than ever.
How to Choose a Plastic Surgeon
Choosing a plastic surgeon is indeed a very important part of your experience as a patient. While there are many doctors, only a handful will be suited for the symptoms and treatment you’re seeking. The key to finding the right plastic surgeon is research.
Important information to discover is the area of expertise of the surgeon. Do they specialize in a specific procedure or a broader spectrum of treatments? Try and find someone with ample experience. A good way to determine the expertise of your doctor is to identify if they are board certified. Dr. Carp is board certified by the American of Plastic Surgery, which means he is a designated “expert” in his field.
Always Schedule a Consultation with the Doctor
Once you’ve found a couple options for doctors, the next step is to go talk with them face to face. A consultation about your situation and what you want to get out of the experience is the place to get a feel for your doctor and to get all the little details of the procedure or treatment. The doctor can offer their personal insight to the symptoms you’re experiencing, and together you can determine what would be the best course of action to help you get where to you want to be.
Do Your Research
After going to your consultation, the final step is to do research on your doctor or the procedure in question. Before and after pictures are a huge help to patients unsure about a treatment plan. The images provide invaluable insight and help you visualize the results you can expect after your surgery or treatment. Patient testimonials from the same doctor are also in the same vein. They offer a window into the treatment process.
After all your research and time has paid off, you get to pick the doctor and treatment plan that you believe will work best with your needs and wants to ensure you have a satisfying experience.
