Having a facelift, liposuction, breast augmentation or any other cosmetic surgery is a serious investment in altering your appearance. For most people, it is a personal experience and they want to connect with a surgeon that engenders their trust.

When choosing a surgeon, you should always look for one who is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or the American Board of Plastic Surgeons. These associations have rigorous standards that often include board certification, a set number of years of surgical experience and a basic residency requirement. They also encourage members to seek continuing education opportunities on a regular basis.

Location is also another factor to consider. Many procedures require multiple consultations and follow-up appointments. Even after the procedure itself you may need to come back for two or three follow-up appointments to monitor your healing and recovery. Trying to find a surgeon who is within a reasonable traveling distance will help you maintain a comfort level to maximize recovery time and limit over all cost.
