( — September 29, 2016) Troy, MI — Doctors who advertise on television or billboards aren’t necessarily reputable. In fact, any type of cosmetic surgery advertising needs a closer look because not all doctors have the extensive training and experience needed for first-rate results. An entertaining ad doesn’t mean the surgeon behind it can deliver high quality, natural-looking results.

What to Look for in a Cosmetic Surgeon Detroit

Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

When you choose a member who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ASPS) you can be confident your choice is a qualified, extensively trained plastic surgeon. Plastic surgery includes both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Surgeons who are ASPS members have the training, experience and qualifications to perform both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Since cosmetic surgery is based on reconstructive plastic surgery, ASPS Member Surgeons are distinctively qualified to deal with your cosmetic needs.

Approved to Do Any In-office Procedure at an Accredited Hospital

An important factor to examine is if the surgeon is approved to do a cosmetic surgery procedure at both his/her office-based surgery center as well as at an accredited hospital.

An accreditation is important because it ensures the doctor you’re considering undergoes a continuous review process from the organization that gives the accreditation. To keep this status, the review determines the doctor consistently shows the ability to meet stringent standards. These standards include confirming the doctor is dedicated to complying with the highest standards of quality care.

When your cosmetic surgeon Detroit is accredited at both his or her office-based surgery center and at hospitals, you’re assured your doctor upholds and practices the highest standards for both types of healthcare settings.

Extensive Experience Needed – Ask Questions

It’s important to ask how many procedures the cosmetic surgeon Detroit has done before for the surgery you are considering. The more a doctor performs a procedure, the better the outcomes tend to be.

Bring a checklist of questions and get detailed answers.

Here is a checklist of questions to ask your cosmetic surgeon Detroit:

  • Do you have a certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS)?
  • Are you an associate of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS)?
  • What specific training do you have in the plastic surgery field?
  • How many years of plastic surgery training do you have?
  • Where and how will you perform my procedure?
  • Do you maintain hospital privileges for performing my type of cosmetic procedure? If yes, what are the name(s) of the hospital(s)?
  • Is your on-site surgical center accredited by a recognized accreditation agency? Is it licensed by the state or approved by Medicare?
  • Am I well-suited for this procedure?
  • What will I need to do to get the best results?
  • What surgical approach is best for me?
  • How long will my recovery period be? Do I need help while I am recovering?
  • Are there any risks or complications related to my procedure?
  • How do you deal with any complications?
  • How can I expect my (body area) to look in the future?
  • What are my options if I am not happy with the cosmetic results of my surgery?
  • What reasonable results can I expect for myself?
