The Top 3 Questions To Ask During Your Plastic Surgery Consultation
The questions you ask during your initial plastic surgery consultation can have a direct impact on the success of your surgery and your overall satisfaction with the results of your procedure. In our experience, patients who ask questions and get a thorough understanding of the procedures they are having done are often more satisfied with the choices they make. While there is no wrong question, there are certain questions you should ask during every plastic surgery consultation. Asking these questions will help you decide which procedures are right for you and help you safely attain the results you are looking for.
Do You Have Board Certification?
Many people are shocked to hear that any licensed physician can legally perform plastic surgery, even if they have no specialized training in plastic surgery. The best way to ensure the procedure you are having done is safe and for you to get the results you desire is to choose a plastic surgeon who is Board Certified. Board certification ensures the surgeon you are working with has completed a higher level of specialized training, gained the specific experience they need within their field, and has passed a test to prove their knowledge. Dr. Rieger at Hyde Park Cosmetic Surgery Center is a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon who has been distinguished as a member of the prestigious Millard Society, an honor bestowed upon only a few hundred plastic surgeons.
How Much Experience Do You Have With The Procedure I Am Interested In?
While Board Certification should be the first thing you check for when choosing a plastic surgeon, the next thing you should consider is how much experience that surgeon has with the specific procedure you are interested in. Dr. Rieger is one of Tampa Bay’s most respected top plastic surgeons and has extensive experience in breast surgery, facial plastic surgery, and body contouring surgery, having completed thousands of procedures during his more than 30 years in plastic surgery.
What Should I Expect During Recovery?
Understanding what you should expect during the recovery process can help you be sure this is the right procedure for you, and that it is the best time for you to have the procedure done. You will need to know how much down-time you should expect after your surgery, what restrictions you will need to accommodate for during your recovery phase, and how long after your procedure you should expect to need to wait to see the full and complete results from surgery. If you’re not comfortable with the answers your surgeon provides to you about a specific procedure, ask them to discuss alternative procedure options that may be a better fit for your needs and goals.
