Beauty Inside and Out: Finding the Right Doctor
This year, as we look forward to returning to our “new normal”, more and more men and women are choosing non-surgical methods to look energetic and youthful, and also to keep their professional edge.
Today’s non-invasive technology can rejuvenate you dramatically, yet subtly. You can look completely natural, without scarring and be able to return to normal activities, while others will be unaware that you’ve had anything done unless you choose to tell them.
Here are four keys to help you choose the right doctor for your summer holiday and fall makeover.
The American Board of Medical Specialties certifies doctors in specialties based on their training, and recognizes only dermatologists, plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, and oculoplastic surgeons as the Core Four aesthetic specialists with appropriate qualifications and expertise to be performing cosmetic procedures.
Always ask if your doctor is board certified, as well as what specialty they are certified in.
Select an Expert
Expert dermatologists and plastic surgeons are very involved in the field and have extensive experience and training. They often serve as university professors, physician teachers and trainers for new and existing techniques and technologies. You might also notice them serving as FDA study investigators, and as advisors for new cosmetic surgery technologies, teaching at dermatology and plastic surgery academies, and serving on scientific boards for medical conferences and programs that educate and train plastic surgeons and dermatologists. Their offices are typically well-equipped with the latest equipment. They frequently contribute original research and publications to high-level dermatology and plastic surgery journals.
Look For Choices
True cosmetic surgery specialists offer many different treatment options, so that your action plan can be customized to address your own unique pattern of aging. Depending on your needs, your cosmetic surgeon should be able to offer you a wide range of possible plans and solutions, and the reasons for your recommended action plan.
Look For the Latest Technology and Techniques
New technologies should be used by a cosmetic surgeon who understands skin of all ages, different genders and ethnicities and cultures, to safely and effectively rejuvenate women and men at any age and from all backgrounds.
If you follow these four keys, you can balance how you look with how you feel and enjoy the summer holidays and fall by projecting youth, energy, and vitality at any age.
