Choosing a cosmetic doctor is not, by any means, an easy thing to do. In fact, it can be rather overwhelming for a prospective cosmetic surgery patient to even know where to start. Do they start with websites, social media ads, billboards, or where? The practical advice is not to start with any of those things, but instead start by checking out appropriate board certifications, other relevant credentials, and local regulatory authorities. Then there is the initial consultation to prepare for. It might seem like a lot of hard work and inconvenience, but a poor choice of cosmetic doctor will create poor levels of results, unexpected expense, and often injury & tissue damage that cannot be repaired.
