Selecting a Cosmetic Surgeon in Toronto Starts with These 3 Important Things

Once you have made the exciting decision to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure, it is imperative that you do these 3 important things.

First, take your time to select a cosmetic surgeon in Toronto who has the appropriate credentials and specializes in your area of interest. Next, you’ll want to ensure that your surgeon has the knowledge and experience necessary to deliver the results that you desire. Your consultation should be the final step in narrowing down your choice of plastic surgeon, as you will be able to see whether you and your prospective surgeon are on the same page and can communicate clearly.

Steps to Choose Your Plastic Surgeon

Step 1: Check the Credentials

The first step when compiling a list of prospective plastic surgeons is to verify that they have the appropriate credentials. While a number of physicians market themselves as “cosmetic surgeons,” this title does not guarantee that they have completed the rigorous training and testing necessary to qualify as a plastic surgeon. Instead, many of these people are general physicians who have not specialized in plastic surgery. Plastic surgeons, on the other hand, are physicians who have completed a minimum of 5 years of surgical training after graduating from medical school and have met the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada’s strict standards. The best way to be sure that your Toronto plastic surgeon is qualified to perform cosmetic surgery is to confirm that they have the following accreditations:

  • Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada
  • Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons
  • Canadians Society for Aesthetic (Cosmetic) Plastic Surgery
  • College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario

How to Achieve Your Aesthetic Goals

Step 2: Choose a surgeon who specializes in the surgery you are interested in

An experienced and reputable plastic surgeon will also have hospital admitting privileges that enable them to use a hospital facility when necessary. In addition to verifying your prospective surgeon’s credentials, it is advisable to select a Toronto cosmetic surgeon who specializes in the procedure that you are planning to undergo. For example, if you are interested in a facial procedure such as rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty, it is best to choose a surgeon who specializes in facial plastic surgery, as this will provide you with peace of mind knowing that your surgeon has dedicated their career to this practice.

Step 3: Schedule a consultation

The best way to be sure that your prospective surgeon is right for you is to schedule a consultation. This is a crucial step in your decision-making process, as it provides you with an opportunity to speak privately with your surgeon about your goals for the procedure and address any questions that you might have. It is imperative that you listen to your gut during your consultation. If the surgeon rushes through your meeting, dismisses your questions, or makes you feel uneasy, they are not the right fit. Instead, your Toronto cosmetic surgeon should take their time to listen to your concerns, thoroughly address all of your questions, demonstrate empathy, make you feel at ease, and leave you feeling confident in their ability to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
