These days, plastic surgery is all the rage. Due to the sheer number of plastic surgeons available, it often feels like there are endless options for patients seeking to enhance or improve their appearance. Unfortunately, not all plastic surgeons are equal in their training, skills or experience. So if you want to avoid looking plastic in Miami, here is what you need to know:
Look for Experience in Your Desired Procedure
The first step to ensuring that your results look natural and not artificial, is to seek out a surgeon with plenty of experience in the specific procedure you would like to have completed. If a surgeon is constantly performing your desired procedure, there is a higher chance that they are especially skilled in achieving quality results. Although some surgeons may list many procedures, if they are not performing these on a regular basis, their results may be less than satisfactory.
View Before and After Photos
The next step to avoiding looking plastic is to take a look at the surgeon’s before and after photos. This is the best way to get an idea of what your results may look like, and to see how the surgeon has performed similar procedures on a variety of different bodies. If the results look good in the photos, you can rest assured that you will be in competent hands. Conversely, if the before and after photos do not look appealing or there are no before and after photos to view, consider looking elsewhere for your procedure.
Thoroughly Discuss Your Goals in Person
While much of your evaluation can be done on the surgeon’s website, the final and key factor to ensuring beautiful, natural-looking results is to thoroughly discuss your concerns and goals with your prospective surgeon in person. Having a consultation will allow you to get a feel for the doctor’s bedside manner, while also asking any key questions you could not find out online. Be mindful of how your surgeon discusses your procedure. If you feel like they are simply pushing a product without taking aesthetics and your specific body into account, feel free to walk away.
