It is vitally important for potential patients to educate themselves in understanding, knowing and realizing the importance of obtaining facts and information about how to choose a surgeon. Patients need to understand that it is imperative to consider asking critical questions when considering the doctor that will perform their surgery or procedure. Any well-trained, reputable and confident surgeon will welcome all patient questions, and will want you to be completely truthful and comfortable with his/her qualifications.
The following questions should be asked about the surgeon’s credentials:
1) What medical/dental school did the surgeon attend?
2) In what disciplines is he/she board certified in?
3) Where and what residency did he/she study?
4) What is the surgeon’s training with regard to the specific cosmetic surgery procedure you are considering?
Remember that a well informed patient will be better able to make more confident and appropriate decision about undergoing any proposed procedure(s).
