How to Find the Right Plastic Surgeon for You

If you’re considering plastic surgery, you probably already know you need to find a board certified plastic surgeon.

You probably also know you need to find someone who is experienced with the type of surgery you want.

But what else can you use to find a plastic surgeon who’s not just good, but actually the right plastic surgeon for you?

Take a look at the three steps you can use to make a final decision on who should be your plastic surgeon.

Look for Someone Who is a Perfectionist

You don’t want a plastic surgeon who settles for “good enough” – you want a surgeon who is committed to delivering the perfect results for you.

Here’s why: every person is a work of art In progress.    With mediocre or “good enough” surgery, you could get results that don’t quite fit your appearance – and that can be difficult to fix.

With a plastic surgeon who has an artistic eye and who reflects an appearance of excellence ,in his office, staff and his demeanor , you can surmise that he will apply those traits to your surgery.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Vitolo has been described as having “the eye of the artist and the hands of a seasoned surgeon, who’s skills make your vision of beauty, a reality”. 

Find a plastic surgeon who has five-star patient reviews. If possible, look for reviews that speak to the type of surgery you want, as this can give you better insight into what you can expect when having this surgeon perform your procedure. 

Bear in mind that , that in the reality of life, a physician cant please every patient all of the time, and for many reasons, an occasional patient will not be happy and will write a bad review. That is human nature, look for the ovewrall reviews, and make your value judgement on them, not the “outlier”.

Another great tool for analyzing any prospective plastic surgeon is to view their before and after gallery photos. Seeing the results your surgeon has achieved for others can help you get an idea of what to expect for your own results.

Pay Attention to Your Consultation

Most important of all, your plastic surgeon should make you feel important and heard during your consultation. If it seems like your plastic surgeon isn’t listening to you or doesn’t seem to understand what you’re looking for, that’s usually a sign you need to find another surgeon.

When you see Dr. Vitolo for a consultation, you will actually meet with the doctor himself because that is why you came to see us in the first place! He will be able to advise you on your treatment plan based on his vast experience, your medical history, and your ultimate goals. You can rest assured getting direct medical advice from the doctor himself instead of meeting with a nurse or PA.

Professional and very experienced. Highly recommend Dr Vitolo. Will be going back!
