How to Choose a Cosmetic Surgeon in the Cleveland Area

It is imperative when choosing a cosmetic surgeon in Cleveland to consider the following issues. Cosmetic surgery is a major decision and careful thought should be given to choosing  a provider. Any reputable cosmetic surgeon will welcome your questions and want you to be completely comfortable with his or her qualifications.

What are the surgeon’s credentials?

Don’t hesitate to verify a physician’s medical license, certifications and professional society memberships and ask what the requirements are to be a member or to be  board certified in that specialty.

What is the surgeon’s experience?

Ask about the surgeon’s medical education and training specifically for cosmetic surgery and the procedure that you are considering. How many procedures of this kind has the doctor done and how often does he or she perform them?

Ask for referrals from friends

Keep in mind that physicians specialize in different areas of cosmetic surgery and most are not experts in every area. The surgeon who did a fantastic facelift on a friend may not be the most experienced to perform breast augmentation.
Before-and-after photographs can give you some indication of a surgeon’s ability, although you must realize that they cannot guarantee the result you  will achieve.
Each patient is different and the surgeon can help determine what kind of results you should expect.

Explore all of your options

Don’t hesitate to consult with more than one cosmetic surgeon to discuss your desired outcome. There may be more than one technique available with varying risks, benefits, recovery time and results.

Ask where your surgery will be performed

Cosmetic surgery is performed in various facilities such  as hospitals,  surgical centers and office settings. An accredited surgical facility must be meeting certain minimum standards to obtain and maintain its accreditation. Facilities may be accredited by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Healthcare (AAAHC) or the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
Make sure you are comfortable with the personal rapport between you and your surgeon. In addition, you should feel at ease with the staff, as much of your communication will be with them. You should always feel that your concerns are being addressed.  Do not be satisfied with an incomplete answer from anyone.
