Choosing a Surgeon Who Specializes in Tummy Tucks or Liposuction

Whether you choose to have tummy tuck or liposuction surgery done, finding a qualified surgeon is critical. Do not be afraid to ask your prospective doctor about his or her background and qualifications. A qualified cosmetic surgeon will welcome your questions and be pleased that you are concerned enough to ask.

Below are a few guidelines to assist you in your search for a qualified surgeon:

  • Check your surgeon's credentials and study them carefully. Is he or she board certified?
  • Find out how much surgical experience the surgeon you are considering has. Does he or she specialize in tummy tucks or liposuction?
  • How many procedures of this kind has the doctor done?
  • How many operations is the doctor currently performing per year?
  • Remember that although before-and-after photographs can give you some indication of a surgeon's ability, they are no guarantee of the results you will receive.
  • Ask your surgeon if it is possible to speak to former patients.
  • Make sure you are comfortable with the personal support between you and your surgeon. Moreover, be sure you feel at ease with the staff, and that your concerns are being addressed. Do not be satisfied with an incomplete answer from anyone.
