So you've decided on elective cosmetic surgery, well nothing is more important than choosing a certified cosmetic surgeon as it's a choice you'll live with for the rest of your life. The wrong plastic surgeon can do far more harm than good, and when you're altering your visual appearance, the last thing you want is a botched job.

As long as you choose the right surgeon, you should have a successful cosmetic procedure that not only makes you feel more like yourself, but it should give you confidence for years to come. Now, with that being said, let's take a look at some things you should look for when trying to find your ideal cosmetic surgeon.

3 Tips for Finding a Reliable Cosmetic Surgeon

  1. Board Certification

    While they should have their certification hanging on the wall for their patients to see, some do not. Board Certification is the first thing you want to look for when trying to find a cosmetic surgeon and you can even directly ask them if they're certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

  2. Find Someone Who Specializes in Your Desired Procedure

    Plastic surgeons each have their specialty just as any other doctor would focus on trauma, neurosurgery, or cardiac. Therefore, you want to make sure they have had successful experiences with your desired procedure. To determine this, feel free to ask them if they've trained in this procedure, and how many times they've successfully completed it.

  3. Look at Their Aesthetics

    Everyone has their own definition of what they find attractive or appealing which is why you want to look at some of your surgeons before and after photos to make sure you share the same vision. When you're looking at the before and after photos, try honing in on those patients who share the same features as you that you wish to change or alter.

If you're looking for a reliable cosmetic surgeon and you want to see your desired results, look no further. Whether it's acne treatments, facial fillers, or laser hair removal that you desire, Dr. Blanchar specializes in all of the above including more.
