After making the decision to have a tummy tuck, you’ll need to find a capable surgeon. Choosing the right tummy tuck surgeon takes time and requires thorough research. Your choice could be the difference between being fully satisfied with your tummy tuck and regretting your decision to have the procedure.
Below are the basic factors to consider when choosing the right tummy tuck surgeon:
- Surgical Experience – Plastic surgery is a wide-ranging industry. It pays to choose a plastic surgeon who has performed tummy tucks for a long time and is adept with the different techniques used in the procedure. Beyond queries about the surgeon’s experience, you should also ask for before-and-after photographs. A surgeon’s personal photos will give you a sense of the their aesthetic sensibilities.
- Education and Board Certification – Plastic surgeons with board certification have passed a rigid set of oral and written examinations and served an approved fellowship specific to plastic and cosmetic surgery.
- Artistic Eye – Like other types of plastic surgery, a tummy tuck procedure is also an art form. Aside from having expert knowledge on the newest surgical techniques, your tummy tuck surgeon should also be able to provide aesthetically pleasing results.
- Caring Attitude and Genuine Attention to Your Needs – A good tummy tuck surgeon goes beyond simply being able to perform the procedure. He or she needs to take the time to listen attentively to your goals, preferences, and expectations. Patient comfort should be a priority, and the plastic surgeon needs to recognize that each patient is unique.
