Know your surgeon, ask the right questions
To help those seeking plastic surgery, Dr. Love has compiled a checklist to guide patients through the process of planning for cosmetic surgery.
- Evaluate Yourself: Describe your expectations to your cosmetic surgeon.
- Only Choose Surgeons Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery: When looking for a qualified OKC plastic surgeon, verify your doctor is a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Love. Also verify that your surgeon has credentialed privileges at local hospitals to perform your procedure. This will help ensure that the surgeon has met the standards of Oklahoma hospitals.
- Ensure that Medical Facilities are Credentialed: Even if you choose a board certified plastic surgeon, Oklahoma City medical centers need to be accredited by an agency such as American Association of Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF), Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), or Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
- Be Informed: Do your homework when considering cosmetic surgery. Surgeons should explain the risks, benefits, alternatives and reasoning for the proposed treatment, after which an informed consent document should be signed by the patient.
