From what I perceive on my end, meeting a doctor for the first time to discuss a personal flaw can be very embarrassing.

How to Choose Your Surgeon

As I have said many times before, the most important decision that you will make regarding your plastic surgery is determining how to choose a surgeon. The Internet has provided patients with a means to make more informed decisions and to take an active role in their medical care. I would recommend starting research by making sure that your surgeon is actually a plastic surgeon, and not just someone who calls himself/herself one. There is no patent on the term […]
