Dr. Stafford Broumand Reveals How to Choose a Plastic Surgeon in New York City

Stafford R. Broumand of 740 Aesthetics Highlights Several Tips Patients Can Use When Selecting a Plastic Surgeon for Cosmetic Enhancement

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 26, 2015) - "When interested in surgical or non-surgical cosmetic enhancement, ensuring you receive the most ethical care and best results for your unique needs and goals begins with choosing the right physician," states Dr. Stafford Broumand, a board certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan. "With the vast number of surgeons to choose from, particularly here in New York City, this can often be an overwhelming process for many individuals."

In an effort to assist men and women who are beginning the selection process, Dr. Broumand recently offered several important factors to consider when choosing a plastic surgeon. According to him, prospective patients should:

  • Confirm the plastic surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).
  • Be sure the plastic surgeon is highly experienced in the specific surgical field and/or procedure of interest.
  • Select a plastic surgeon with whom they can build a strong relationship.
  • Speak with the plastic surgeon's other patients and view before-and-after photos.
  • Ensure the plastic surgeon operates in a certified surgical facility.
  • Be cognizant that cost often factors into the plastic surgeon's expertise, as well as the quality of care provided.

Dr. Broumand also notes that reading online reviews to help select a plastic surgeon can be beneficial, though these should be taken with a grain of salt. "For the most part, patients who are either extremely satisfied or dissatisfied with their outcomes are the ones who leave comments on review boards -- individuals who don't necessarily feel strongly one way or the other tend not to take the time to leave a review." As a result, he recommends utilizing online review boards as a resource to confirm the abilities and characteristics of the surgeon, though he adds that they should not be the only tool used to make a conclusive decision.

In the end, Dr. Broumand shares one last piece of advice: "Ultimately, if something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. Take your time, do your homework, and only proceed with treatment when you feel absolutely comfortable."
