Tips for Choosing the Best Plastic Surgeon for Your Needs

Plastic surgery is meant to be a positive and stress-free experience. So choosing the right plastic surgeon is crucial to ensuring a successful procedure outcome.

Consider these factors as you narrow down your choices and make a decision.

Board certification

Medical credentials can be confusing if you’re unfamiliar with what they mean. A plastic surgeon board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) has undergone the rigorous board certification process by the only board the American Board of Medical Specialties recognizes. Board certification signals you can trust a cosmetic surgeon to be highly trained and qualified to perform your procedure.

Experience and expertise

Along with comprehensive training, your plastic surgeon should have extensive experience and a proven track record in performing the procedure you’re interested in. And they should be able to customize the treatment to your situation and needs.

Patient reviews

Ask to review similar patient cases and testimonials and request before and after photos to get a sampling of the surgeon’s previous work. You might also consider searching for patient reviews on forums or chat boards.

Schedule a personal consultation

A successful plastic surgery outcome begins with a personal consultation that goes over your goals and expectations while allowing you the opportunity to evaluate the surgeon’s “bedside manner” and communication skills. It’s also the perfect chance to see the facility or surgery center where your procedure will take place.


Any surgical facility you’re seriously considering should be accredited by industry-recognized organizations like the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), and the Joint Commission.

Cost and Insurance

Ask what the surgery will cost and whether it’s covered by your insurance. You should also ask if the facility provides financing options, which Napa Solano Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer its patients.


You want to ensure you’re treated well and safely. Ask about the facility and the surgeon’s safety protocols and how well they’re equipped to handle potential complications.
