As you consider your options for plastic surgery, do you ever think about who your plastic surgeon is? Did you screen your surgeon to see if he or she were the most qualified candidate for the job, or did you just pick your plastic surgeon based off of some friend's recommendation? If you did the latter without giving a thought as to how it may affect you, you may want to reconsider whom you have in charge of your plastic surgery.
Just because your friend had a great experience does not necessarily mean that you will too. There are some things you need to take into consideration, like whether or not you are having the same procedure done, whether you and your friend have the same genetic and physical makeup and whether or not your friend took the time to screen their plastic surgeon before getting any work done.
This may seem like a lot for you to think about, but when you look at the situation more closely, you will see that they are some very important points that need to be addressed. You don't want to be in a position where the surgeon who is in charge of your plastic surgery really isn't certified, licensed or doesn't have a good reputation. When it comes to your health, you need to take every precaution to ensure that nothing happens that can cause you to be uncomfortable.
You may assume that just because a doctor practices that they are able to do so legally. That is not always the case. Since doctors and other medical professionals often incur a huge amount of debt before they are eligible to practice on their own, they have to make sure that they pay back their student loans without defaulting on them. If they default on their loans, then they lose their license to practice until the situation is cleared up. There are other situations can also contribute to having their plastic surgery license revoked.
The problem with not properly screening your plastic surgeon is that if you get an operation and something goes wrong, then you don't have much legal recourse. It is up to you to do your homework. Not only do you end up disfigured, injured or even dead, there is not much anyone can do as far as legal compensation, unless it is discovered that they misled you in the first place.
You want to have the best experience possible, and to do that you need to have the best possible work on your body. After all, you wouldn't hire an unlicensed contractor to work on your house, so why would you hire and unlicensed doctor to work on your body. If you are smart, you will screen any professional by whom you plan on having any medical work done before you commit to any procedure. In the long run, you will be happy that you did.
