If you are considering cosmetic surgery, make sure to do your homework before selecting a cosmetic surgeon. Not all cosmetic surgeons are created equal!

Before you move forward with your decision to undergo breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, liposuction, a non-surgical cosmetic procedure, or any other type of enhancement surgery, make sure to ask the following questions of prospective surgeons.

How to choose a cosmetic surgeon:

Do you specialize in the type of procedure that I am seeking? You want to make sure the cosmetic surgeon you select has extensive experience with the specific procedure you are considering. There are plenty of cosmetic surgeons, so you want to make sure you choose one that has the right type of expertise.

Where will the surgery take place? Not only do you want to make sure that your cosmetic surgery will take place at a convenient location, but you also want to make sure the facility is up to par and certified. Don’t put yourself at risk by agreeing to have cosmetic surgery performed in a facility that is not equipped to handle emergencies. Just The Right Curves world-class surgery center is fully certified.

Does the cosmetic surgery pose any significant risks? There are risks associated with all types of surgery. Many cosmetic surgery procedures are considered elective or optional. If you are seeking a type of cosmetic surgery that is associated with a high level of risk, make sure the cosmetic surgeon(s) that you are interviewing explains all of the risks to you in full detail. Dr. Moore and his staff make it a point to discuss all client questions and concerns during our detailed consultation.

How much is the procedure going to cost? A cosmetic surgeon or his/her office staff should be able to provide you with a good estimate for the cost of your procedure. Keep in mind that many health insurance carriers do not cover elective or cosmetic procedures so it’s important to verify this beforehand.

Do you have before and after photos available? Most experienced and talented cosmetic surgeons are more than happy to share before and after photos of previous patients to prospective patients. If the cosmetic surgeon cannot or will not provide you with photos, you should probably be concerned. We offer customized before and after photos suited to your body type.

Can you provide me with references from previous patients? It’s very common for prospective cosmetic surgery patients to ask for references from previous patients. If a cosmetic surgeon has happy and satisfied patients, he or she should be happy to share their references with you.
