When you’re sick, you don’t just go to any doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Not all doctors are the same, nor have the same specialty. Well, the same goes for plastic surgeons. It’s essential that you select a skilled and qualified surgeon, such as Salem plastic surgeons Dr. Keith Neaman and Dr. Dustin Christiansen, to perform your cosmetic procedures.
If you don’t know a surgeon personally, referrals are an excellent place to start. Referrals let you gain insight into patient care. But if you want to learn about a plastic surgeon’s skill and expertise, the best thing you can do is view their before and after pictures. Before and after photos will give you an inside look into how a surgeon approaches a procedure and what types of results he is able to achieve. When you’re looking at a surgeon’s photos, it’s important to view them with a healthy skepticism. You should always be realistic and look out for the following:
- Results That Appear Too Perfect
While this seems like what you would want in a surgeon, it isn’t exactly realistic. You want consistency, but most people aren’t perfect 100% of the time. Even the best surgeons are going to probably have a patient or two that display so-so results. A good surgeon will show you his best results alongside his less-than-perfect results so you can see an authentic portrayal of his work.
- Results Should Vary
No two people are the same, so their results shouldn’t be. A good surgeon will be able to adapt to the needs of the patient, yet still, produce aesthetically pleasing results.
- Make Sure You Like What You See
Just as a writer has a unique style of writing, a plastic surgeon has a unique technique for different procedures. The majority of the before and after photos should appeal to you aesthetically. If you don’t particularly like the results you’re seeing, there’s a good chance you won’t like your own results if you select that surgeon. If you’re considering breast augmentation, you should be pleased with the results you are viewing. A good surgeon understands this and will work with you or may even refer you to someone else that can give you what you desire.
