Choosing Your Plastic Surgeon : Part 2
How to Choose Your Plastic Surgeon The Answer Will Surprise You
By: Dr. Kenneth Hughes
Reviews: Reviews are certainly helpful for the patient in getting an understanding of the types of procedures the surgeon performs and perhaps the numbers of procedures. However, certain review sites can certainly be gamed, and patients should be aware.
Before and After Photos and Surgical Videos: If the patient can develop a very critical and discerning eye, before and after photos may be the most useful and unbiased way to evaluate a plastic surgeon. If you can determine when body positions have been manipulated and camera angles have been altered, you will be able to determine when more is done with less and how often maximal results are achieved. With the ubiquity of Photoshop, procedure videos on You tube can substantiate surgical skills and results.
Social media is here to stay but I do not think that any are useful in selecting the best plastic surgeon. I think that all of these things can simply divert focus from surgical outcomes and patient care. Even if you are the brightest individual and possess the greatest technical skill, you will never achieve the best outcome without extreme focus, perseverance, and dedication to your patients and their outcomes.
