A quick online browse may seem like the simple solution to choose a potential cosmetic surgeon or clinic, but not all search engine results will lead you to the most reputable, skilled and experienced surgeons. 

So, when you're trying to narrow down your choices, how should you go about finding the perfect cosmetic surgeon online? Below, I've outlined a little advice that will help you with exactly that.

Search beneath the surface

Some of the first things you're likely to come across during your online search is a number of websites that belong to plastic surgeons or clinics. Just because the website is fancy and modern, it doesn't necessarily mean that this will translate to the credentials and expertise of the practitioner! These websites can act as useful glossy brochures and sources of information, but for real answers about specific surgeons you'll need to dig a little deeper. 

One thing to note is that a good cosmetic surgeon's website will try to encourage you into learning more about the cosmetic procedures, rather than simply dazzle you with glossy images alone.

Sourcing a reputable cosmetic surgeon is critical

If you're already aware of which cosmetic procedure(s) you're keen to explore, then it's important to seek out the advice of a plastic surgeon who has vast experience in this specific area. You can find this quite easily through websites of various representative bodies that strive to maintain top quality industry standards. These industry bodies include the expertise of surgical professionals and will help you locate a surgeon that specialises in your preferred procedure. This will mean that you receive the very best advice and overall standards.

Don't be influenced by pushy campaigns

Not too long ago there was a lot of controversy in various parts of the world about cosmetic surgery commercials being aired during TV shows. Campaigners have claimed that this is irresponsible behaviour and glamourises cosmetic procedures to a younger, more impressionable audience. Similar to this, you may come across companies that use celebrity endorsements or offer incentives to entice you into selecting them for your procedure. Cosmetic surgery is a highly personal choice, and no procedure should ever be trivialised. Strong claims that play on insecurities should ring alarm bells. Yes, the aim is to typically look and feel better physically and within yourself following plastic surgery, but strong pushy campaigns that try to influence you emotionally or play on your insecurities may not have your best interests at heart.

If you're considering cosmetic surgery and want to discuss your options with a reputable, board-certified cosmetic surgeon, then don't hesitate to get in touch today. I make regular working visits to Dubai where I offer procedures such as a facelift, necklift, eyelift and more to both national and international patients.
