Things to Look Out for in Your Cosmetic Doctor

You’ve decided to take a step to regaining your looks and confidence by undergoing surgery. That’s great, but you must remember that there are several things you should watch out for, especially if you’re planning to get the treatment through medical tourism. Here are critical issues to be mindful of:


Your prospective doctor should not just be be a licensed medical practitioner, but certified by your local board of plastic surgeons. Keep in mind that it’s not enough to confirm his medical degree. Cosmetic surgery demands a more in-depth and specialized study of the field. Unless the doctor is board-certified in his field, walk away and find a professional legally qualified to practice his or her specialization.

Familiarity with Procedure

There is a reason why cosmetic surgeons explain the latest techniques and procedures that they employ in their clinic. For one, few reputable clinics have caught up with techniques and technology already introduced in the industry. For another, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon presupposes mastery of technique and integration of academic knowledge from years of experience. Don't be tempted to settle on the first name on the list.


Every medical procedure inherently runs the risk of complications; even routine ones cannot be discounted. A reliable cosmetic surgeon should explain these risks, and help you weigh the pros and cons. Stay away from those who would claim their techniques are flawless.
