How to Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon

How to Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon

We put time into the look and representation of our office through internet presence, the day to day community activities we take part in, as well as the research we do to add new treatments to the practice. Also, our staff members are hand chosen to enhance our collective personality best; we’re a fun and compassionate group. At Dr. Lensink’s office, we take the time to perfect our business and patient care model because our clients are a top priority. Whatever we create or plan, we keep our clients in mind from the time they spend with us in consultation to long after treatment. Everything you need from your first meeting with Dr. Lensink and in aftercare is available to you.

Dr. Lensink truly cares about each client, and this comes through with his approach to client concerns or problems they have. We work with you to resolve any issue by correcting it with surgical or nonsurgical treatment options that make sense for your lifestyle. We’re not sure if every physician can say that because not many physicians out there understand the value of individuality in patient care, but most drive their practice on a one-size-fits-all platform. As Dr. Lensink spends a lot of time helping patients by answering their treatment questions on RealSelf, he often gets the question of how to choose the right plastic surgeon. Just in case this is yours, Dr. Lensink has some pointers so you can get started on your search for the right plastic surgeon.

Why it is Important to Research Your Doctor and See Before and After Photos

Photos are constant representations of a plastic surgeon’s work. On every single website and surgical review page, there should be a set of digital examples that showcases their surgical and cosmetic results. Make sure you know what you’re looking for and then do your research. A plastic surgery website should be separated by sections so you can sift through photos based on the surgical procedure you’re interested in; for example, if you’re looking for facelift and neck lift samples there should be a set of those readily available. If you’re not sure what you need just yet, go online and type in your question to see what comes up. There will likely be a few surgeons in your area that can help you, and from there, you can browse their informational web pages, photo examples and learn more about their patient care system.

If you see photos you like and have done your reading, reach out to those few physicians and ask them for additional information. If you’re interested in their work, then think about scheduling a one-on-one consultation with them; it’s one thing to look good online, but it’s another to feel good about the person. Also, it’s important to note the speed at which you receive a reply; if this physician and their staff do not reply to an online request or take weeks to return a call, then they are not for you.

Scheduling Multiple Appointments for Consultations is a Good Thing

The next step is to meet your top five surgeons. You’re sure to find everything from A to Z based on the physician’s name, surgical procedure list and certification inquiry. Scheduling multiple consultations for surgical work is common for these surgeons. Most plastic surgeons understand that patients need to shop around for someone that has their unique needs in mind as well as the same mindset for surgical procedures that they do; we also know that personality is a big part of your decision. So don’t worry about making 15 appointments throughout the week, we get it.

We encourage potential clients to come in and see Dr. Lensink in person so you can talk with him in private and get to know him as he learns all about you. Dr. Lensink wants you to feel sure that you’ve made the right choice and have all of your questions addressed at this time. Explore and understand everything about your potential procedure alongside the plastic surgeon that will potentially solve your aesthetic concerns with style and skill.
