Surely you’ve seen a plastic surgery disaster or two: uneven or lopsided breasts after breast augmentation, a nose job that doesn’t look anywhere near natural, or the “frozen” Botox face. As board certified plastic surgeons we hate seeing these disasters because while we may not have caused them, they are out there, possibly scaring potential patients away from the benefits of plastic surgery. Please don’t judge the whole plastic surgery industry by a couple of bad cosmetic surgeons, who may very well not even be board certified in plastic surgery. If it looks like bad plastic surgery, it is bad plastic surgery, and most definitely not what you will receive here at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery + MedSpa.
How Do I Avoid These Plastic Surgery Disasters?
If you’re considering plastic surgery, the right surgeon can make all the difference between results you’ll love and a plastic surgery mistake. Make sure you choose a board certified plastic surgeon, not just a plastic surgeon (all of our doctors at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery + MedSpa are board certified plastic surgeons). When looking for plastic surgery, quality matters. You might save a few dollars choosing a bargain surgeon, but surgery is lasting and you want your results to be stunning both now and for a lifetime.
See Results First
Another important tip for choosing a plastic surgeon is to see the quality of their work before going into surgery. Ask to see before and after photos of the procedure you’re considering to see if you’re likely to receive the results that you want. If you’re considering plastic surgery with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery + MedSpa, check out our online gallery to see before and after photos of actual patients at our practice. A variety of photos for procedures across the body are available including abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast augmentation, and facelift. Another great way to see before and after results is to attend the H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery + MedSpa 4th Annual Beauty Bash event where you can speak one-on-one with existing patients about their experience. Don’t miss this year’s event taking place on Saturday, October 25 from 10-5pm.
Make sure you see photos from actual patients of the plastic surgeon, not general photos of surgical results from others. You’ll also want to see photos of the exact procedure you’ll be receiving. If your surgeon doesn’t share photos online, call and ask for them. Most surgeons will happily share photos of their work.
Past Patients Know the Real Story
Patient testimonials can also be a valuable resource when evaluating potential surgeons. These patients have been there, know what results they received, and have seen the care of the board certified plastic surgeons and surgical staff. Former patients can tell you a lot about the experience you’re likely to receive with a particular surgeon. Ask for patient testimonials if they are available. To learn more about our practice, check out these video testimonials from some of our patients.
Plastic surgery is an art form and just like you’ll find great artists and no so great artists, you’ll find plastic surgeons at every end of the skill spectrum. Make sure you see your surgeon’s work before you ever commit to surgery so you can see for yourself what they can create.
