The basic skincare routine consists of three steps: cleanse, tone, and moisturize but some people stop at Step 1 and call it a day. While you can skip toning as part of your routine, moisturizing is not negotiable, particularly if your skin is dry. In addition to restoring moisture, moisturizers also have a protective layer in the skin against bacteria and toxins that cause the pimps. It also helps to slow down the aging of the skin.

Dry skin appears to be more prone to wrinkles and sagging because it is vulnerable to chronic inflammation. This breaks down the collagen, giving the skin its elasticity and strength. To restore moisture, you need to use a moisturizer that will absorb water from the air and smoothen rough skin. Most moisturizers have both moisturizing and emollient properties. But if you’re not sure, look for water trapping ingredients such as glycerin or hyaluronic acid and smoothing components such as shea and cocoa butter.

People with oily skin appear to have a love-hate relationship with sebum. It’s beneficial to the wellbeing of the skin, but it’s so annoying when there’s too much of it. But did you know that too much sebum is a sign that the skin is dehydrated? It sounds counter-intuitive, but the skin overcompensates dehydration by creating more oils. When your skin absorbs more oil, you’re very likely to develop acne as well. That’s why you need to moisturize your skin even though it’s oily. But not all moisturizers are made of the same thing, so pick one that suits your skin type well.

Moisturizing for your skin type

  • Normal Skin: If you fall into this category, you have a fairly balanced skin (not too oily, not too dry). Although you can use any kind of moisturizer, it’s important to bear in mind the environment you’re in. Lotions and gels provide moisture without greasing the skin. You may use oils and creams for colder days to add extra hydration.
  • Combination Skin: The combination skin is distinguished by the oily T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and the dry skin of the cheeks. It’s a little difficult to deal with because you have almost two types of skin. But you don’t have to use separate moisturizers to fix your skin issues. Most of the sheer moisturizers hydrate the skin well without applying oil to the T-zone.
  • Dry Skin: Flaking is a common dry skin problem. Look for moisturizers on the heavier side. Look out for those who have alcohol, since they can dry the skin even more. Creams and oils perform well because the thicker consistency provides more hydration and avoids loss of moisture. You will find that you need to apply it more than once when the weather is cold.
  • Oily Skin: Oily skin is typically acne-prone, so you need a moisturizer that can cope with both skin issues. Look for ones that are water-based and oil-free. Gel moisturizers are best because they are lightweight yet hydrating. Stop heavier formulations like creams as they can make the skin look greasier. Look for moisturizers that have salicylic acid to treat acne.
  • Sensitive Skin: Your moisturizer should be free from harsh ingredients that can cause redness and discomfort. Paraben, dye, and fragrance-free formula are perfect because they contain fewer irritating ingredients. When you purchase a moisturizer for your sensitive skin, take a patch test on your jaw to see if the substance irritates. Taking care of your skin doesn’t have to be complicated. Finding the best moisturizer for your skin type is a good start to creating a routine that your skin can thank for.


It’s chilly outside, your summer clothes are on hiatus, and you’ve just stuffed the Christmas boxes. Winter isn’t exactly the time you’re going to have treatments like breast enlargement, liposuction, or a tummy tuck on your mind. But as it turns out, there are a lot of reasons why this time of year is probably the perfect time for plastic surgery.

  • Flexible vacation time: Since most people are planning holidays, vacations, and day trips during the sunny summer months, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to ask for time off during the peak season. So why don’t you take advantage of the quieter winter season and treat yourself to the body contouring treatment you’ve had on your wish list? The amount of time you need to take away from work and other everyday activities will depend on the technique you select. For example, when you have a tummy tuck, most people plan to take about two weeks off work, while you may be able to get back to your desk a little earlier after breast enhancement or liposuction.
  • Comfortable recovery: You will most likely be advised to wear a special compression garment after your plastic surgery to help minimize swelling as you are recovering. But if your treatment is in the dog days of the summer, you could be stuck cranking an AC or dripping a fan. In winter, on the other hand, recovery can be cooler and comfier all around. As a bonus, if you have children, they’re going to be back in school this time of year, allowing you to get some peace around the house while you’re relaxing.
  • Winter wardrobes are a perfect camouflage: Another advantage of winter plastic surgery is that the wardrobe is typically even more conducive to warmth and concealment. Baggy sweats, zip-up hoodies, and lots and lots of blankets are just what you need not only to feel relaxed and warm when you’re healing but also to conceal any swelling or bruising you may encounter after your operation.
  • You’ll see results in time for the summer: Think about it if you intend to increase your breast in June, you’ll be trapped indoors to heal for the best part of the summer. But if you schedule your treatment for the winter months, you’re going to have plenty of time to get back on your feet, recover and show off your beautiful results in time for lazy days at the pool and fun beach vacations. Bear in mind that it may take 6 months or more to see the final results after most plastic surgery, including breast enlargement and abdominoplasty. And for the first few weeks of recovery, you’re going to have to stay out of the sun and avoid swimming and hot tubs, so prepare enough wiggle room for your plastic surgery timetable.
  • Get motivated to stick to healthy habits all year long: Coming out of New Year’s Eve, your determination to live a healthy lifestyle is fresh on your brain. What better way to remain inspired to eat safe and exercise all year than to treat yourself to a beauty procedure that you’ve been searching for some time now? Many people claim that their plastic surgery has acted as an outstanding incentive to remain fit and safe even years after their surgery.


After years of battling obesity, you wanted to get a bariatric operation. Although this operation facilitates a significant weight loss that is perfect for your well-being, it also has one side effect. When the body absorbs excess fat, the loss of this fat also results in excess skin in the body. Although it’s easy to cover areas around the stomach with baggy clothing, excess or sagging skin in the face isn’t that easy to hide. This excess loose skin can contribute to heavy lines, loss of facial volume, and contour as well as a “turkey neck.” These improvements can accelerate the aging process, and although you have a fresh, healthier look, you can also look older. In this situation, a facelift can only be a treatment to revitalize your face.

How weight loss changes your face?

Maintaining a healthy weight is important for good health, but many people are struggling to keep their weight in check. When you gain weight, the skin is stretched to support a rise in fat. Unfortunately, as you age, your skin loses collagen and elastin, making it less prone to “bounce back.” And, in cases of extreme weight gain, the skin simply isn’t able to shrink when you lose weight. For those who have undergone bariatric surgery, sagging skin is normal. Many prefer body contouring procedures to fix this excess skin, like a facelift. After significant weight loss, it is normal for more wrinkles and sagging to occur as facial volumes have decreased. Jowls and loose skin of the neck or “turkey neck” may be a new problem. A facelift will resolve all of these issues and give you the facial contour you want, along with restoring a more youthful look.

What a facelift does?

During your facelift, incisions are made around your natural hair to mask any scarring. Then, the plastic surgeon will tighten your facial muscles and reshape, reposition, and/or remove facial tissue to create a more youthful facial structure. Excess skin is then cut off and the remaining skin is repositioned for a more youthful, contoured look. The recovery from a facelift is relatively short. Most people with a facelift require about 14 days to rest and recover. It’s a tiny amount of time when you think about how much you’ve come to make you better. Achieving a healthy weight is vital to your health and quality of life. And if you’re ready to deal with the sagging skin around your face, a facelift can help.

Cosmetic surgery is a major industry, and according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, almost 18 million people undergo cosmetic surgery every year.  Some are considered minimally invasive, such as having Botox or fillers, while others require a more in-depth operation, such as liposuction or rhinoplasty. The number of men who decide to undergo cosmetic surgery is also rising every year. In today’s world, particularly with the rise in popularity of social media, it has become more appropriate to show the best possible version of yourself. This may include a little nip, tuck, implant, or reshaping of areas on the face or body that a person is not fully pleased with. Luckily, there are treatments available to change a lot of different problems a man doesn’t have to deal with. Let’s look at the 6 most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for men.

  • Gynecomastia: Gynecomastia surgery or breast reduction is done when a man has an overgrowth of breast tissue, generally due to a hormonal problem and not a weight gain. No amount of exercise is going to make the breast tissue get thinner because it’s a hormonal imbalance. It’s the same surgery that women want smaller breasts to have done, but it does involve the surgical removal of excess breast tissue and liposuction together to be most successful. The areola sometimes needs to be reshaped in the process. It’s performed under general anesthesia, and usually, the patient needs a full three to six months to heal completely. It just means taking it easy with sports, fitness, and daily tasks.
  • Hair Transplantation: Many men suffer from male pattern baldness. It may be a genetic trait that is passed down from their generations, however, thankfully, a hair transplant may solve the problem. It’s one of the few long-term choices that works to offer a man his hairline back from extreme hair loss. There are two different types of hair transplant operations. One is the FUE, which is where the doctor removes the donor hair from another part of the patient ‘s head or back, stomach, or legs. Each hair is transplanted one at a time during this form of procedure. The other type of procedure is the FUT, which means “follicular unit transplantation.” In the FUT, the doctor will transplant strips of hair instead of just individual follicles. The risk of scarring in this second form is higher, but the FUT may also create a thicker hairline since more hair is being used.
  • Liposuction: Liposuction is also a very common cosmetic treatment for men and women alike. Last year alone, almost 259,000 men underwent this form of fat-reducing surgery in a new window. Pockets of fat can be removed in a variety of different areas, but men particularly prefer to have this done in the stomach and flank areas. The flank area is where the “love handles” appear on the sides of a man’s body above his hips and below his ribs. This is achieved under general anesthesia where the incisions are made in the correct areas and the fat deposits are removed using a surgical vacuum. After surgery, compression clothing is used to help with swelling and to allow the body to adapt to its new shape.
  • Botox and Facial Fillers: Botox and facial fillers (soft tissue fillers) are known to be part of the minimally invasive group of cosmetic procedures. Looking at the number of men who had these forms of injections, there were a massive 10 million men. The most common areas on the face are around the mouth, the sides of the nose, and the glabellar lines that appear deep between the brows. Botox is different from facial fillers in the sense that Botox injections freeze the action of the muscles in the face below the line or wrinkle, rendering it less visible. Facial fillers are soft tissue injections, under some brand names like Juvederm and Restylane, which are made of a material containing hyaluronic acid. Both can be done in a cosmetic office setting, fully awake, and without much pain in the process.
  • Eyelid: The eyes are a body area that can certainly indicate a person’s age. This surgery is sometimes called an “eye rejuvenation” or the technical term is a blepharoplasty. In this operation, done under general anesthesia, the eyelids have extra skin that is removed and tightened. This can also reduce the presence of bags under the eyes and wrinkles around them. The scars in the operation are quite well concealed, and most of the time the eyelid lift gives the face a refreshing appearance that looks very youthful.
  • Rhinoplasty: A good old-fashioned nose job or rhinoplasty is still very popular with men. Over the years, men have played sports and have injured or broken the nose section. This can leave it crooked, or with an unattractive bump that can be changed by a rhinoplasty operation. Some men have done this because of a deviated septum that often triggers breathing difficulties, but it’s often not a cosmetic operation. It is done under general anesthesia, and normally the patient will need a few weeks to recover the swelling and bruising.


Many women associate feminine beauty with the appearance of their breasts. This is why breast enlargement is one of the most consistent in-demand treatments for plastic surgeons. In the past, many women did not realize the impact that the lackluster behind might have on their confidence and feminine identity. The form and fullness of the butt have gained more popularity in recent years, due to its prominence in popular culture. Whether it is due to age, biology, or environmental factors, it is normal for people to be uncomfortable with the appearance of their buttocks. However, some patients may not feel comfortable with the idea of implants. That is why MAYCLINIK offers his patients a Brazilian Butt Lift, which is a method of transferring fat from another area of the body to lift and shape the buttocks.

What is fat grafting?

 When aging or major weight changes begin to affect the buttocks, it can also cause the skin around the region to lose its shape and volume. It can also contribute to irreversible sagging and displeasing appearances. Fat grafting, or fat transfer, is a surgical technique that incorporates two medical procedures in one to strengthen certain parts of the body.  Fat grafting uses liposuction to extract fatty tissues from other areas of the body, such as the legs, belly, back, and arms. After the fat is processed, it is purified and injected into specific areas of the body to create natural and attractive enhancements that will make you look and feel fantastic.

Procedure and benefits

 Fat is grafted into the tissues in a multilayer, fanning procedure to strengthen and reshape the buttocks. Not only does fat transfer help to remove excess fat deposits, but it also provides patients with a normal and improved outcome that they have been eager to achieve. Since the Brazilian Butt Lift is an outpatient operation, patients will be able to return home on the same day that the procedure is performed without a lengthy recovery time. In order to minimize swelling and maintain the new contour, a compression fabric should be worn at all times for the next few weeks.

Reliable surgeons will review your application for treatment and direct you through educated decision-making. Choose a surgeon who knows your priorities and who is a specialist in using the latest methods to help you achieve them.


How do you feel about your breasts? We don’t care if your breasts are big, small, or in between, we just want you to love them. We know that ideally sized, always perky breasts are not always a reality, and we provide a wide range of cosmetic breast surgery to help you achieve your ideal look.

Breast Augmentation

Have you ever wished for a bigger breast? Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, can increase your cup size and balance your figure. This operation changes the form by inserting an implant into the breast, either on top of or below the pectoral muscle. This implant may stay within your breast until it is removed and will add volume and fullness for several years, even decades, in some patients. What can breast augmentation do for you? Our patients choose this procedure for many reasons including:

  • Increase breast size.
  • Balance breast size with body type and figure.
  • Correct breast defects due to congenital deformities or injuries.
  • After mastectomy, reform the breasts.
  • Restore breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss.
  • Boost self-confidence.

Breast augmentation is highly customizable. Implants come in a range of shapes and sizes. We will work with you to decide your ideal breast appearance and to select the implants that best suit your cosmetic goals.

Breast Uplift

It doesn’t matter how often you’re practicing, or how much you’re wearing a bra, if you have breasts; finally, they’re going to say it. Breast sagging occurs in most women, often after pregnancy or weight loss, regardless of breast size. During the uplift, we remove excess skin, reposition breast tissue, and restore a more youthful breast form. Supportive sutures are inserted in the breast tissue to help the breasts retain their youthful form. This procedure can:

  • Correct breast sagging.
  • Lift and reposition breast tissues.
  • Restore breast appearance after pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss.
  • Resize or reposition the areola.

Your breast lift will be personalized to your breasts and your aesthetic goals. Our surgeons use a range of incision styles and lifting techniques to ensure a successful outcome for each patient.

Which Procedure is Best for Me?

Breast lift, breast augmentation, and augmentation with a lift can all produce stunning results. The trick of loving your breasts is to choose the right treatment for your body and your goals. Get personalized recommendations on the best possible choices for you during a breast surgery consultation. We will carry out a review and give suggestions for care, answer questions and clarify the cost and funding options for each of the procedures you are considering. These basic guidelines will give you a better understanding of which treatment is ideally suited to:

  • Breast Uplift: Choose a breast uplift for a more youthful breast shape. A breast uplift won’t drastically change the size of your breast. So, pick a uplift on your own if you’re satisfied with the size of your current cup but want to correct your sagging.
  • Breast Augmentation: Choose breast augmentation if you want to increase your breast size or enhance your breast shape. Implants come in several sizes, so there’s no need for a massive increase in size. Implants without a lift will not correct sagging, so the skin should be taut and elastic.
  • Breast Augmentation + Lift- Transform your breasts! This operation will resize and reshape your breasts. This gives the most drastic shift in the shape of your breast. Lift and implant combinations are very common after pregnancy / breastfeeding or weight loss.

Sleep plays an important role in both physical and mental health, helping you to look and feel at your best. After any kind of surgery, sleep is one of the best ways to boost your immune system and help your body heal faster. But it’s not possible to sleep in any position you want after cosmetic surgery. For example, if you have a tummy tuck with MAYCLINIK, your surgeon will advise you on the best sleeping position during the initial healing phase so as to avoid putting pressure on the surgical site that can damage the sutures, cause bleeding, increase swelling, and compromise recovery and results.

Numerous studies have shown that people who give priority to sleep are more likely to have a sharper memory, to find it easier to maintain a healthy weight, and even to have younger-looking skin compared to those who sleep less than they need. Getting proper sleep is particularly important for patients who are recovering from cosmetic surgery as it promotes healing and helps your immune system to function optimally. Sleep helps you get back to your normal energy level and optimizes your surgical performance as quickly as possible. As you try to get quality rest during your plastic surgery recovery, you should know what sleeping positions are best for you. Let’s take a look at the ideal sleeping position for some popular procedures.

  • If you have had a facelift, your surgeon will recommend that you sleep upright to help minimize swelling. You may be advised to use a travel neck pillow to help maintain your position throughout the night or to add two to three pillows under your head to support yourself.
  • In patients with breast enlargement, surgeons would recommend sleeping on the back with several pillows or in a recliner for approximately 4 to 6 weeks during the early recovery period. This prevents excessive strain on the incisions and keeps the pressure off the soft breast tissues as they heal. This also prevents you from using your hands and pectoral muscles to get out of bed when you wake up. After a couple of weeks, you can sleep on one side, use a pillow that will keep you in one position while you’re asleep.
  • For patients who have had a tummy tuck with MAYCLINIK, it is best to sleep on a recliner with the head up at 45 degrees and maintain a position that keeps the body slightly bent forward to prevent strain on the incision between the hipbones. It is crucial to maintain a semi-reclining position and not to lie flat for a few weeks.
  • Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a buttock increase procedure that combines liposuction and fat grafting to provide youthful, perky, firm buttocks, and a more sensual body profile. During recovery after BBL, patients are advised to avoid sleeping on their backs and to use a donut pillow or inflatable pillow when they need to sit and sleep on their stomachs or sides. This is to improve the survival of the fat grafting since it is in the early weeks after surgery that the cells mature. Once the cells are mature, the fat that has been transferred will be longer.

It might be hard for some people to change their sleeping positions all of a sudden. So if you are scheduled to have plastic surgery, you may be able to practice your modified sleeping position a few weeks before the procedure. This way, you can get used to the sleeping position recommended for recovery. Every patient is different, and you may have needs that are special to your situation. When the body recovers and the swelling goes down, it would be easier to sleep in the recommended sleeping position. As healing progresses, you will be able to change your sleeping position on the advice of your surgeon. Following your surgeon’s guidance on how to recover from sleep and any other problems, it is important to maintain your performance.


Q: Why do you say the deep plane facelift is more effective than other facelifts?

A: The deep facelift plane allows a surgeon to do a more thorough job dealing with the effects of ageing on the face and neck. It lifts the whole face by repositioning deeper tissue layers. The result accentuates the cheekbones, jawline and neck. It is particularly good at lifting the mid face, an area that does not respond well to other types of facelift. It produces longer lasting results than other facelifts. Because near the skin surface there is little tissue damage, there is less bruising and bleeding in patients with a deep facelift. But the best thing about the facelift of the deep plane is that it leaves little to no evidence of a facelift that has happened. There is no skin pulled, no telltale and the look of plastic just-had a-facelift. People actually look good relaxed, rejuvenated and healthy after a deep plane facelift, not as if they had gone under the surgeon’s knife. They look much healthier, and definitely much younger, but not so glaringly. This is very much appreciated nowadays, as people move away from obvious results toward subtle improvements that stand the test of time.

Q: How can such results be possible with the deep plane facelift?

A: The surgeon will deal with the real problem areas with the deep plane facelift, ‘lift’ the tissue and repair it more permanent than just facelift or normal SMAS facelift is possible with the skin. Facelifts that take skin off give only a surface solution. They are not solving the real issue but providing a band-aid cure to combat aging. The SMAS facelift procedure, also referred to as the ‘facelift muscle pulling,’ goes below the skin to repair the aging face problems. It performs much better than skin-only methods. But the SMAS can only achieve a certain level of success, because some facial ageing problems go deeper than the SMAS layer. And this technique often necessitates some skin pulling for good results. Without resorting to half measures, the deep plane facelift addresses the source of these problems: the face’s deep tissue layers, below the skin and the tissue layer SMAS. The deeper tissues of the face are released from their underlying muscles during a deep plane procedure and reattached at higher anchor points. This is how it lifts the whole face, allowing for superior results.

Q: Is the deep plane facelift a more serious surgery compared to other facelifts?

A: Yes and no.

Yes, because the surgeon needs superior skill and expertise in handling the face’s deeper tissue layers to perform a successful deep facelift on the plane. It’s surgically a more demanding procedure in that context, or ‘more serious surgery’ if you want. It is more challenging surgically than other types of facelifts. This is of course another reason I prefer it to others.

No, because it just should not be considered a ‘more dangerous procedure’ from the point of view of a patient. First of all, recovery times are relatively short after deep plane facelifts, compared to alternatives. This is because most of the surgical work is done on deeper facial tissue layers, rather than close to the surface. The second point is closely related to the first. On the surface, after a deep plane operation, you won’t see any severe signs of surgery, because, unlike conventional facelifts, skin during this operation is little undermined. The skin is not isolated from the underlying lymphatics, a crucial factor that contributes to the often-seen delayed swelling in other facelifts. Of course, that said, they should take all surgery seriously. Irrespective of the skill of a surgeon, there is always the element of risk that cannot be eliminated entirely. None of the deep facelift flights, nor any other facelift techniques are exceptions to this rule. Of course, that said, they should take all surgery seriously. Irrespective of the skill of a surgeon, there is always the element of risk that cannot be eliminated entirely. None of the deep plane facelift, nor any other facelift techniques are exceptions to this rule.

Q: Is it riskier or have more complications?

A: The deep plane procedure is no more risky than other techniques used for facelift. As we have explained above, it actually leads to fewer complications.

Q: Does it hurt more than a regular facelift?

A: No. We can confidently say that it does less harm than most other facelifts. Since the skin with its high concentration of nerves has little damage, people undergoing the deep plane facelift usually recover fairly painlessly.

Q: Does it take longer to recover from a deep plane facelift? How long will I have to take off from work?

A: Given its lack of severe risks, a longer healing period for the deeper tissue layers is involved in the deep-plane procedure. But to a casual observer it won’t be noticeable, as it would be during a skin only healing cycle or SMAS facelift. Usually it demands less downtime than other facelifts. After a relatively short initial recovery period of two weeks most people can get back to work. Other facial lifting techniques typically take longer. In addition to allowing time for facial tissue to heal, most facelifts also delay the return to work because the face is likely to be swollen and unsightly. Less swelling and uncomplicated scars help for quick return to normal activities with the deep plane technique. This is another reason celebrity are fond of this procedure. When you get back to work or social activities, people won’t even notice that you had a facelift. They’ll know you look a lot better, and they’ll compliment you on how well you look rested. And you can continue like nothing happened. People who don’t want to reveal to the world their beauty decisions really enjoy that part of the deep facelift boat.

Q: Who is a good candidate for the deep plane facelift?

A: Practically anyone can have a deep plane facelift. On the other hand, we also see younger applicants with the deep plane facelift than is typical of the age group that you would expect facelifts to be having. For relatively young candidates the nature of the technique makes it a sensible choice. Since the deep plane procedure tackles muscle and tissue laxity at the root of distress, it may be recommended by facial plastic surgeons to comparatively younger people who would like to avoid the signs of ageing first appear. In a clear conscience, we will conduct the treatment, trusting that the results will be successful and that the patient’s goal will finally be achieved. If somebody undergoes a deep plane facelift in their mid-forties, we can expect the results to last ten, or even fifteen, years. For other kinds of facelifts this ‘pre-emptive’ facelift is not recommended. Unless your face shows some level of facial ageing and skin laxity to begin with, you are not a candidate for those techniques. That said, people at any age can benefit from the deep plane facelift. They appreciate deeply the long-lasting results which the deep plane technique can produce.

Q: I need a revision facelift. Will the deep plane facelift work for me?

A: Yes, definitely. The deep plane technique is ideal for revision surgeries, as the previous facelift would most likely have been performed using a different technique. This allows for limited scope for revision operations. Just so much skin and muscle pulling will stand up to your nose. A deep facelift in the plane allows the surgeon to go to the problem source and fix it there. So, a deep facelift plane is generally the ideal method for anyone who requires a second or subsequent facelift to use.

Q: Why does the deep plane facelift cost more than other facelifts?

A: As already mentioned, only a few facial plastic surgeons possess the skill and experience required by the deep plane technique. Of course, this knowledge has a premium price tag, which is the primary reason why a deep facelift cost more than a normal facelift SMAS or skin pulling.


Most of the women considering plastic surgery sometime in their lives. However, this is not easy to decide when we consider many things such as the quality of the hospital, surgeon, and the service. Especially they should be careful about choosing the surgeon and the quality of him/her. Choosing your Plastic Surgeon is an important decision, but it can be confusing. There are many things to consider, so today we explore four of the most important criteria:

  • Training
  • Experience
  • Board Certification
  • Society Memberships

Training: Proper preparation is the foundation for any good Plastic Surgeon. Prerequisites include the obvious, finishing college and medical school, and since it’s a competitive discipline, graduating at the top of the class helps. A minimum of three years of general surgery training must be completed following medical school. Though, like me, a lot of people complete the general surgery training before they do their plastic surgery fellowship. Plastic surgery training must be done in an approved program with a minimum of two years of training related to Plastic Surgery, while my program was a three-year program. This is the time to learn how to perform surgery safely, and when not to operate.

Experience: Years in Practice is also something to remember when selecting a plastic surgeon. The experience provides recurrence and education inpatient care that training programs cannot provide. Greater experience also gives you a greater margin of safety. It is important to have a surgeon who finishes his training, but it is equally important to have a surgeon who can have a successful practice.

Board Certification: Board Certification was once the crowning achievement of successful completion of Plastic Surgery Training, but in the last few decades of my practice, it has become something more. Board certification still requires documentation of the completion of the proper training and the successful completion of both the written and oral certification examinations. However, over the decades of my practice, I have switched to certification that is re-assessed every year and re-certified every 10 years. It required ten years of ethical practice, yearly board requirements, and a final examination given every ten years. The test will soon be transitioned to an annual examination, and I am part of the pilot program for the process. The goal is to assure that board-certified plastic surgeons remain up to date as medicine changes. You should ask your Plastic Surgeon if they are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and when was the last time they re-certified.

Society Memberships: Membership in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) or the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) is an easy way to check all the above. To be an ASPS or ASAPS member, you must be a Certified Board member, operate in accredited facilities, and comply with the ethics set out in the company’s by-laws. If your plastic surgeon is a member, they have the correct training and board certification. ASAPS members, in general, are ASPS members who specialize in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery, like our surgeons.
