Choosing the Best Reconstructive Plastic Surgeons in Flint

When you’re shopping around for reconstructive plastic surgeons in Flint and the surrounding areas, you have a lot of choices.  It can be tough figuring out which plastic surgeons will be best for your needs!  Given how life-changing plastic surgery can be, it’s vital to make the right decision here.

Fortunately, there are ways of narrowing down your options and ensuring you make a good choice.  Here are a few easy tips.

4 Tips for Picking a Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon in Flint

1 – Find out if they’re board-certified

Many people don’t realize it, but cosmetic surgery is not specifically regulated by Federal or State governments.  In theory, anyone who has obtained a surgeon’s license can legally perform plastic surgery – even people who haven’t trained to become a cosmetic surgeon.

For surgery around the eyes, a surgeon who is board certified in ophthalmology (eye surgery) is often the best choice. These surgeons have extensive training and experience in the delicate areas around the eyes. The American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery consist of surgeons who are specialist in plastic surgery around the eyes.

2 – Verify the surgeon is trained in the procedures you want

Not all plastic surgeons are going to be trained in all procedures because the options in cosmetic surgery are vast.  Nearly all will have specialized areas and you want someone who specializes in your area of interest.  Fortunately, cosmetic surgeons are a pretty tight-knit group.  If one doesn’t specialize in the procedure you want, they can often refer you to someone who does.

3 – Look at plenty of before-and-after pictures

Cosmetic surgery is a true melding of art and science.  Cosmetic surgeons are, in one sense, sculptors, and their artistic sensibility may not match yours.  Aesthetics are in the eye of the beholder, so you want to see a lot of examples of their past work.  Ask yourself, genuinely, “Is this the look I want for myself?”  If not, you should go to interview other plastic surgeons.

4 – How does the surgeon and their office make you feel?

Finally, do a “gut check.”  Do you feel comfortable talking to your would-be plastic surgeon?  Do you feel relaxed in their office?  Do they give you a genuine sense of confidence in the work they’ll be doing?  Follow your instincts here and don’t be afraid to walk away if something feels wrong.
