How To Find the Best Cosmetic Surgeons in San Bernardino County

 

Plastic surgeons in San Bernardino County CA must be licensed by the Medical Board of California as protection for consumers. But it is not a license for cosmetic surgery specifically, making it all the more critical that the surgeon you go to has proven expertise in the specialty of plastic surgery. 

They are not required by law to have malpractice insurance; however, all plastic surgeons bearing The Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have that malpractice insurance coverage for your protection, in addition to passing all other requirements for certification as Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 such as our survey phone calls to their previous patients to verify high satisfaction, verified license, time in business, clean complaint record, and more.

 

Plastic Surgery in San Bernardino County CA

There are two basic types of plastic surgery: Reconstructive surgery, which corrects defects on the body or face such as cleft palates or other natural deformities, or bodily damage from accidents or disease, and cosmetic surgery, sometimes known as aesthetic surgery, which deals with some part of the body a person wants changed, such as a tummy tuck, face lift, nose reduction or reshaping (rhinoplasty), eye lift, laser skin resurfacing, botox injections, breast enhancement or reduction surgery or fat removal (liposuction).

In San Bernardino County there are dozens of medical doctors who practice plastic surgery. In recent years the amount of elective plastic surgeries performed has risen steeply as procedures became more mainstream and any stigmas attached to plastic surgery went by the wayside, partly because of the media airing shows such as Extreme Makeover. Shows like that often make the surgeries look very easy. But surgery is surgery and always carries risks.

You may have considered having work done yourself. If so, choosing the right San Bernardino County plastic surgeon may be the most important decision you can make. It may interest you to know that any MD can practice plastic surgery without any other special training or certification. Any physician with a license to practice medicine and a medical degree can legally perform plastic surgery.

There are, however, plastic surgery accreditations awarded by certain self-regulated medical organizations such as the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Each has different criteria and qualifications. (See a list of these in our article, "Consumer Resources for Cosmetic Surgery in San Bernardino County.) But an accreditation certificate hanging on the wall is not indicative of surgical prowess. Certainly plastic surgery accreditation is a great place to start, but cosmetic surgery doctors in San Bernardino should also give you access to examples of surgeries he has performed for others. Referrals from past patients who are happy with their surgery results should be offered and available. A good working hospital affiliation is also important. Surgeons allowed access to hospital facilities are typically accredited and overseen on a regular basis.

Tips on Plastic Surgeons in San Bernardino

Take Time Choosing Your Plastic Surgeon.
Take your time hiring a Plastic Surgeon. It's an important decision that can easily affect the rest of your life and shouldn't be rushed. Each plastic surgeon will come to the table with different skill sets, experiences and personality. If can plan early enough to interview several-even if you like the first one you meet-your odds of a successful surgery will improve.

Write it Down.
We mentioned this in another article, but it's important. Think about what you have in mind for your plastic surgery—not just what surgery you want, but what you hope it will accomplish. Jot down all your notes about any detail that seem important. Sit down and write this out as detailed as possible; write down everything that comes to mind, no matter how trivial. By writing it down you'll be able to hand each potential plastic surgeon a clear, consistent summary of what you're looking for and expecting. It will also be easier for them to properly evaluate your odds of success based on your consistent description.

Get Several Separate Estimates.
When hiring an San Bernardino County plastic surgeon, it's not about just finding the lowest bidder. Getting several estimates helps because it will not only help you get an idea of the market value for the work you're requesting, it will give you a chance to sound out the personalities, policies and customer service of each plastic surgeon before getting involved with them.

Documentation, Documentation, Documentation.
Nothing is official until it is written and signed. So insist that your plastic surgeon provides you with a detailed document that describes the surgery, price, contingency plans in case of complications and projected timeframe for the surgery and recovery. Get it in writing. You'll both feel better.

Do Your Homework Before You Sign An Agreement With a Plastic Surgeon in San Bernardino County.
To narrow down your choices, do some detective work. Research the plastic surgeon's licensing, insurance and reputation. To help with this, see our article: Key Consumer Resources for plastic surgeons in San Bernardino County. Verify all of this information before agreeing to the surgery.

Seek out a plastic surgeon that has earned high marks and accreditations from industry groups and past clients and you are much more likely to have a better outcome.
