How to Choose a Saint Petersburg Plastic Surgeon

  • Certification Matters: It is recommended that you choose a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Board certification signifies that your surgeon has had rigorous training, passed exams, and adheres to high ethical standards. Although board-certification does not guarantee a successful outcome, you can be confident that you are working with an experienced surgeon who will help minimize risks and ensure you achieve your desired cosmetic results. For State Medical License information, visit the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) website.
  • Professional Memberships: Check to see if your surgeon is a member of various plastic surgery organizations such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) or The Aesthetic Society. Membership in these organizations demonstrates a strong commitment to ongoing education and keeping up with the latest advancements in the field of plastic surgery.
  • Browse Before & After’s: Browse through before and after photos to assess the surgeon’s aesthetic abilities and quality of their cosmetic results. Look for patients with similar physical features as yourself to get a better idea of what you can expect.
  • Accredited Surgical Facility: Ask about surgical facility and safety protocols where your procedure is being performed. To ensure a safe experience, check to see if the surgical facility is certified by the Accreditation Associations for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
  • Online Patient Reviews: Read online reviews from sites like Google or Yelp to gauge your surgeon’s overall business reputation. By reading online reviews, you’ll get a better sense of your surgeon’s commitment to patient satisfaction from past patients. Keep in mind, individual experiences may vary, so it’s important to weigh the overall consensus.
  • Ask for Recommendations: Ask for referrals and recommendations from family members, friends or even co-workers who have had cosmetic surgery. Oftentimes, their personal experiences (good and bad) will help guide you in the right direction.
  • Understand Associated Costs: Your plastic surgeon’s office should provide a detailed breakdown of all the costs associated with your procedure, such as the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, facility fee, and other related expenses.
