ASAPS Explains the Importance of Pre-Surgery Research

In a recent news report, The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) reminds patients of the importance of “doing your homework” before jumping into any cosmetic procedure. First and foremost, you should always research your plastic surgeon.  According to the ASAPS, “Unlicensed or inexperienced surgeons may help cut costs, but the dangers of going under the knife without researching the background of a doctor are insurmountable.”  Always seek out a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.  Always ask for their credentials.

Secondly, you should understand that plastic surgery is often misrepresented in the media.  Because of this, one of your most important considerations should be keeping goals realistic.  Research the procedure you’re looking into as well as some actual results.  Plastic Surgery Before and After Photos can always help.  But, no matter how much research you do, the only way to find out everything you need to know is to schedule a plastic surgery consultation.

The Consultation: Your Questions Answered

A plastic surgery consultation is the time to ask questions, voice concerns and set realistic goals.  If you’re looking into a procedure such as Botox Injections, a consultation will really help to shed light on the potential benefits and limitations of treatment.  If you’re looking for a more in-depth procedure such as Breast Lift Surgery, your consultation will be essential to evaluating your medical needs and goals.
