The cases of “bad plastic surgery” highlighted in the media tend to be very rare and extreme. “Bad” plastic surgery can be avoided by doing due diligence and researching your potential surgeon. It is important to verify that any surgeon you see is Board Certified; meaning they have the highest standard of certification and experience.
I also recommend that you look at before and after pictures of previous patients to see if the surgeon’s aesthetic matches yours. Make sure you and your surgeon are on the same page when it comes to your treatment plan and goals.
It’s also important to note that complications can happen no matter how good the doctor is or how minor the procedure. Any surgical procedure should be undertaken with caution and a clear knowledge of the facts, potential risks, and rewards.
You want to find a surgeon who listens to your goals, addresses your questions, is someone you feel comfortable with, has high safety standards, and has a great deal of experience. You should feel comfortable with your surgeon every step of the way, and if you do not, find another.
