How To Find A Plastic Surgeon You Can Trust

Deciding to get surgery for cosmetic or functional purposes is a huge deal. Whether you want to feel more confident in the way you look, or you’re having complications with your body and need to correct something, plastic surgery is your choice to make. So now that you know you want something done, where should you begin? There are so many surgeons out there, it can be tough to know where to begin your research.

Here we have compiled 4 tips that may help you choose a plastic surgeon and plastic surgery center that suits you.

Education & credentials

Pay attention to your potential plastic surgeon’s education, awards, and be absolutely certain that they are board-certified under a trusted and accredited board. For example, as one of the top plastic surgeons in Houston, Dr. Eisemann is uniquely triple-board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Board of Otolaryngology, and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Experience

A doctor’s experience says a lot about how they operate. Depending on the procedure and its level of complication, you may want someone who has several decades under their belt. While some doctors may say they perform a number of procedures, you should go about selecting one that specializes to what you are looking for. For instance, Dr. Eisemann specializes in Aesthetic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery, Liposuction and Body Contouring, Houston Breast Augmentation, and Nasal and Facial Plastic surgery. You can also research your potential plastic surgeon’s techniques and learn about what they mean so that you have a general understanding. Feel free to ask your plastic surgeon later during your consult if you would like a more clear picture of exactly what they do.

Schedule a visit

Nothing can set the tone of an office quite like a personal visit. Distance within reason may not even be that much of an issue if you are truly looking for the best services that revolve around you. Stepping foot into an office gives you a firsthand chance at how you may be treated throughout your surgery journey. The cleanliness of an office and other rooms, such as their bathroom, may give you an idea of how much the staff and doctor truly care about their facility. Just like you wouldn’t want to eat in a dirty restaurant, you do not want to take the risk of getting surgery in a place that looks unkempt. When speaking to your doctor, note his or her academic diplomas and ask as many questions as you need before you make your final decision. You should never feel uncomfortable or forced to go through with a surgery you are unsure of. You want answers from your doctor to be honest so that you can form a realistic idea about how your surgery will go.

Review testimonials

Read previous patient testimonials and see what they have had to say about their procedure and their experience with their doctor. Keep in mind that their need for change and their final results can and probably will be different from your own. So it might be best to focus more closely on how they say they felt about themselves afterwards than picking apart their before and after photos if they decide to share any.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country.

These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.
