5 Plastic Surgeons to Avoid Powered By Docstoc
					There are many guides available that explain the best way to find quality plastic
surgeons to perform your cosmetic procedure. However, you also need to be aware of
which ones to avoid. Here are the top five characteristics that you don 鈥檛 want in a
surgeon.
 1. Poor Communication
 One of the most important qualities great plastic surgeons possess is the ability to
clearly communicate with their patients. Not only should they be skilled at explaining
the procedure, complications, and results in simple terms that their clients can easily
understand, but they should be able to accurately interpret and accept their patient 鈥
檚 ideals and expectations. Without a good line of communication between clients
and plastic surgeons, there is a greater chance of dissatisfaction and frustration.
 2. Unavailability
 Plastic surgeons, like most doctors, have busy and demanding schedules. Although
they are required to see many clients and work on many different cases at once, that
doesn 鈥檛 mean that they shouldn 鈥檛 be available when needed. While you can
鈥檛 expect a surgeon to be at your beck and call, you should be able to set up
appointments or have the chance to ask questions without an unreasonable amount of
hassle. At the very least, they should have a competent office staff to assist you with
basic inquiries. Avoid plastic surgeons who are consistently unavailable or impossible
to track down.
 3. No Professional Development
 Technology and techniques used by cosmetic professionals are constantly evolving
and changing. A surgeon who is not up to date, has not heard of the latest trends, or
does not attend professional development trainings does not have his clients 鈥?best
interest in mind. While the latest trends and gadgetry doesn 鈥檛 necessarily mean
the best course of treatment for every individual, it is important for surgeons to
remain current so as to best serve their patients. Ask your potential surgeon specifics
about the techniques and technology he uses and what other options are available.
 4. Poor Aesthetic
 Not all cosmetic professionals will share your beauty aesthetic. The preference for
the average patient is a natural but still uniquely individual look that suits them.
However, some surgeons may prefer more conservative changes while others tend to
make more dramatic ones. Ultimately, you should choose a surgeon whose aesthetic
most closely matches with your surgery goals. Studying before and after photos and
discussing your expectations with your surgeon will help give you the best indicator
of whether or not they can achieve your vision. If you find you disagree with a plastic
surgeon 鈥檚 aesthetic choices, or that all of his clients look suspiciously similar after
their surgeries, it may be best to find another, more suitable specialist.
 5. Sketchy Background
 Cosmetic practitioners who don 鈥 檛 produce qualifications, professional
documents, and aren 鈥檛 ready to discuss their professional experience are to be
avoided. There are some surgeons that operate without proper education, credentials,
and certification. This is especially true if you travel outside the United States in order
to save some money on a procedure. Always ensure that your surgeon is qualified to
perform the job.
