10 Tips for choosing top female plastic surgeons in Santa Barbara

We know that choosing the right Female Plastic Surgeon in California is a big and important decision. If you need tips on finding the top female plastic surgeons in Santa Baraba then we have the perfect tools you will need to pick the best surgeon.


1.   Have You Gotten Recommendations?

The first step is to find friends and family who had good results for their rejuvenation surgery. This way you’ll be able to hear personal experiences from someone you trust. You’ll know they’re being honest about the female plastic surgeon and you will feel confident when scheduling your consultation. If you go online you’ll have to take the reviews with a grain of salt because some may be paid while others may be purposely malicious.

2.   Have You Checked Their Credentials?

Always make sure your surgeon has the qualifications to perform the rejuvenation surgery you need. If they aren’t board certified that puts you at risk of having a bad outcome for your cosmetic surgery. So to avoid this it is important to take the time to do your research on the female plastic surgeons of your choice.

3.   Have They Done Your Assessment?

Have your doctor do a full assessment at your consultation. This means an MRI scan, clothes off, hands on, a clinical assessment that will get them familiar with your body and have the best recommendations on not only what to expect, but which route you should take when making a decision for your plastic surgery.

4.   Have You Weighed Your Options?

With that being said you want to make sure that the surgeon goes over every possible option with you and explains them thoroughly. By doing this you will be able to ensure that you are making a well-informed decision. Weighing your option can be the difference between a quick recovery and the best results for you.

5.   Are they Independent?

Some plastic surgeons use only specific manufaturers of pieces or certain insurance companies. Make sure that you have been given the right option for you and not your surgeon. By using specific manufacturers or insurance companies can mean either higher prices for you or reasonable prices.

6.   What is their experience?

You’ll also want to know what kind of experience your top female plastic surgeons have. Pick a surgeon who performs the rejuvenation surgery you’re requesting on a regular basis. That means they are well versed in it and you will encounter fewer issues not only with the surgeon but the procedure.

7.   What do they Specialize in?

Another question you’ll need to get answered is what is their expertise in. Can they do a variety of surgeries or do they perform a select few. The surgeon who does a select few usually has a better success rate.

8.   Has Your Surgeon Discussed What To Expect Before And After Surgery?

A successful surgery also depends on how it goes before, during, and after the procedure. Your surgeon should go over what you should expect and set up a plan for you to follow. One of the biggest factors is being prescribed the right medications before and how you are able to manage rehab afterward.

9.    Who Do They Have On Their Team?

You should know who else they work with. This is important because the staff can give you insight on your female plastic surgeon too. See if they speak highly of the surgeon or if they give off a persona that they rather work somewhere else. A good surgeon always has a support staff because no one can do everything on their own.

10. Are You Comfortable With The Surgeon?

It is important that you are able to build a rapport with your surgeon. Being comfortable will also make you more confident in them. If you feel uneasy we recommend you get a second or third opinion before proceeding.

After establishing a successful plastic surgery practice on the East Coast and accumulating over 20 years of experience, I decided to open a new office in Venice Beach. I'm thrilled to be here and cannot wait to work with new patients in Los Angeles. In my spare time, you’re most likely to find me at the yoga studio. I’m an avid yoga practitioner, and recently completed my 200-hour teacher training through the Yoga Alliance. I also enjoy surfing, cycling, and spending time with my two sons.
