What Should I Ask My Surgeon?
Several questions you should ask before undergoing cosmetic surgery include:
Why should I choose my cosmetic surgeon carefully?
If you are considering any cosmetic surgery procedure, you need to be highly selective when choosing a cosmetic surgeon. Your surgeon should have the experience and expertise to give you the best possible results.
What type of accreditation should my cosmetic surgeon have?
Your surgeon should have current memberships in credible associations with stringent standards of ethics and excellence. Dr. Chhatre is a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS) and The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). These are two prestigious professional organizations within the plastic surgery community with strict membership criteria:
- American Society of Plastic Surgeons
- The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Inc.
Can I ask to look at pictures of other patients ?
Yes, and you should. Pictures of other cosmetic surgery patients are a good way to see a surgeon’s work. At Summit Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we will show you numerous before and after pictures of the cosmetic procedure you are considering so you will know the kinds of results to expect.
What kind of experience should my cosmetic surgeon have?
If you are considering multiple procedures, look for a cosmetic surgeon with diverse expertise. If you are only considering one procedure, a variety of experience is less important. No matter which, you should select a cosmetic surgeon with a proven track record of safety and results. Dr. Chhatre has decades of experience and, unlike other cosmetic surgeons, doesn’t rush into fads. He waits to see if a procedure is safe and effective before incorporating it into his practice. This is the kind of care you deserve.
Is there anything else I should look for?
Yes – a dedication to personal care. Your cosmetic surgeon should be interested in appearances, but in your safety, health and well being. At Summit Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we are committed to giving you our full attention and providing you with lasting care at a reasonable price.
