Tips to Choose the Best Plastic Surgeon in India

Posted by DrDebrajShomeBlog on December 1st, 2015

Getting plastic surgery is often a huge, life-altering decision. As such, your choice of cosmetic surgeon is one that you will have to live with for the rest of your life or at least until the effects of the procedure lasts. You want a plastic surgeon who knows what they are doing and cares about the results you want to achieve. Choose someone who will walk you through the entire procedure, its potential risks, the rate of success, cost, and post-surgery care. Getting under the knife of an experienced surgeon is far better than spending thousands extra on a botched procedure. Here are tips and guidelines you can follow to make sure your surgeon is qualified, experienced, and suited for the job:

  • Know the ins and outs of the procedure you want to have performed. While you won't necessarily have to be an expert on the technical and medical aspects of the surgery, ample knowledge will help you ask the right questions as you dialog with your potential surgeon. Know the best clinics, hospitals, or medical centers that offer the procedure and seek out surgeons who are best known for the particular surgery. Write down the questions you want to ask and absolutely must get the answers to so you can make a more informed decision.
  • Some good questions to ask your candidate surgeon would be: what their qualifications and experience are, how often they have performed or carried out the procedure you need, what sort of aftercare you can expect post-operation, and how much the surgery typically costs. Choosing a surgeon who practices close to where you live is also a good rule of thumb, especially when you have an outpatient procedure. It also pays to choose a clinic/facility that has all the necessary machinery and instruments for the procedure you are considering.
  • There are numerous resources you can turn to online to check whether or not your surgeon is duly certified or qualified to practice as they claim. Be sure to check on your doctor's credentials to make sure you are in good hands.

Also importantly, look for personal connection. You will be spending a good amount of time with your surgeon before and after surgery. You want someone with whom you can feel completely comfortable. They too, will be a part of your support system as you journey through the surgery and thereafter.
