The most important thing is ensuring you feel comfortable with your surgeon. You should trust your surgeon and feel at ease asking them any questions you have beforehand.

Patient Testimonials

Getting an opinion from someone with firsthand experience from a surgeon can give you insight into what your treatment will be like at that practice. This can help you understand your procedure’s consultation process, surgery, and healing process. Knowing how the patients interacted with the staff and overall experience at the office can help you gain insight into what your treatment would be like there.

Doctor’s Credentials

Knowing your surgeon’s credentials can help you learn about their education and training to ensure a successful procedure. You can look online to find their credentials or can call their office. Your surgeon should be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This guarantees they have had extensive training on the procedure, surgical techniques, and safety requirements.


Knowing how much experience your surgeon has can help relieve your worries beforehand. Selecting a doctor specializing in your desired procedure can assist you in understanding what to expect before your operation. More experience with a broader range of body types can ensure that they have the capability and expertise to perform surgery on you.

Before and After Photos

Looking at your doctor’s online portfolio can help you better understand their surgery style and whether it fits your needs. Choosing a doctor whose pictures resemble your treatment goals is extremely important. Some doctors may provide natural-looking surgeries, while others perform more noticeable procedures. Knowing what you desire and that your doctor excels at it can ensure your surgery turns out how you wish.

Will my Insurance Cover this Procedure?

Finances can be a significant obstacle during surgery. Ensuring that your insurance will cover medical procedures is extremely important. Before your surgery, asking the surgical staff about their payment options and accepted insurance is essential. This can help ease your mind before surgery and can take a load off of your wallet.
