Dr. Malcolm Lesavoy is a highly respected American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) Certified Plastic Surgeon whose practice is in Beverly Hills. When it comes to choosing a doctor for plastic and cosmetic surgery it is important to consider several factors:

You can come across many names when you conduct your initial research. Take care to ensure that every doctor you are thinking of is well reputed and has only positive reviews.

In fact, if possible, contact people who have actually had such procedures performed upon them in the past. They will be able to give you the inside story about any doctor or clinic. It is very important to get the real picture about the services of any doctor.

Do not settle for anything less than seeing actual before and after photographs of procedures performed by said doctor. In this regard you should focus on those procedures that you are interested in. If you are suitably impressed by the results, then you know that the doctor is competent enough and you can safely engage their services.

Personal interaction and comfort level is very important. Your doctor should be kind and sympathetic and should be able to make you feel relaxed and comfortable.

After all, these procedures are rather intimate. If you can feel at ease with your doctor, then he will not be able to examine you proper. You have to be ready to discuss things in great detail with them and share all your concerns and queries.

Look for a doctor who has a well-equipped clinic. It should be hygienic, well-maintained and adequately staffed. Most procedures are out-patient, but still, a clinic that is prepared to deal with any kind of case load is suggestive of dedication and competence.

Plastic or Cosmetic Surgery is a delicate procedure and should be performed only by an expert. Therefore, you should ensure that any person whom you are considering is qualified, properly experienced and board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery? This certification means they have undergone a rigorous board certification process by the only plastic surgery board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Unlike other specialists, board certification is NOT a requirement for plastic surgeons. When it comes to your appearance, choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon should be a major consideration.
