Plastic surgery is a billion dollar industry, and there are a lot of unqualified medical professionals who hope to make money off of you.

So, what exactly do you need to look for in a qualified facial plastic surgeon? You need proof that your physician is Board Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS). If the physician cannot provide you with that information, run don’t walk out the door. A qualified physician should be able to provide you with verifiable proof.
Next, inform the physician of the facial cosmetic procedure you plan to get, and ask to see recent before and after pictures. Only allow the physician to show you before and after photographs of the cosmetic procedure you are interested in getting.

Also, ask if there are any patients he/she has performed the procedure on who would be willing to speak with you regarding their procedure.
