Today, surgical outcome, patient safety and affordability are all discussed on the same page as this is a key provision of the Affordable Care Act which emphasizes patient safety, outcome and affordability. This applies to both cosmetic as well as reconstructive plastic surgery. Daunting as it is, it remains the patient’s responsibility to learn about a surgeon’s background, skills and reputation, You should feel welcome to ask important questions and not be intimidated by flashy advertisements or aggressive marketing tactics. During your consultation you are interviewing the doctor and we know it. Ask him or her to clarify their training and board certification. Get a sense of their skills, results and reputation. In addition to looking at photographs ask to speak to former patients, and find hospital or surgery center nurses to give your some inside information.
