Patients always ask my staff and myself; what are the questions they should ask when interviewing a plastic surgeon? Questions you should ask your cosmetic surgeon during your consultation are one; is he board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery? Number two; is he or she able to obtain privileges in performing this cosmetic surgical procedure at a major hospital? Thirdly; how many of these procedures does he or she regularly perform? And finally; will your surgeon be intimately involved with each step of your preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative course, including regularly seeing you in the postoperative period?
